This lake in Johor (sorry Klang Valley people) will remind you of Kerid Crater in Iceland. While the mesmerizing blue lake is not suitable for swimming, it is worth a visit (at least for you to flex on 📸Instagram). This place can be quite challenging to hike, especially for beginners, but... we will do anything for a nice photo.. right?😏 (must persevere!).

What is at the end of a 🌈rainbow? Maybe you can find the answer here at Sungai Lembing! If you plan to bring your elderly parents here, better think twice because the hike and journey on 4WD can be pretty challenging (it wouldn't help, even if you put on 10 Ebene socks).

Since it is quite a long journey to reach there, the guided tour to the waterfall begins at 6 am. Because of that, many people usually choose to stay the night at Lembing. The best time to witness the rainbow is usually around October.

Located in Putrajaya, this is literally a concrete jungle in the city. Every single corner of this place is very instagrammable! However, it is easy to lose your bearings and get lost in the maze of lush greeneries and concrete walls. All in all, it is a good place for both professional and amateur photographers to unleash their skills.
