If there’s one thing every working Malaysians can relate to, it’s that every year-end marks the time to strategise our holidays in the new upcoming year. This year, we’re blessed with 12 long weekends that allow us to take time off work for a short getaway. Whether you’re eager to have a beach vacation, explore Mother Nature or go off-the-beaten-path, weekend getaways are the perfect time to escape from all the hustle and bustle of city life.
From waking up to the sound of rustling trees and chirping birds to escaping the crowded cities to a magical bamboo house to enjoy stunning views and everywhere in between, Airbnb has got your back! Here are some of the best holiday homes you shouldn’t miss out when you’re planning to visit any of these countries.
If soaking in the holiday vibes by the beachside at the northern-most tip of Borneo with cool water lapping at your feet, fizzing and bubbling like brine sounds like your kind of holiday, the Hibiscus Beach Retreat is the place you need to be. Perched on a small cliff top with unrivalled views of the South China Sea, the one-bedroom self-contained chalet is perfectly designed for couples and small families to have their own private time on the secluded beach. Laze around the beach and sunbathe on the deck or go jungle trekking, mountain biking and mangrove touring if you’re more adventurous.
