This majestic place is located within Taman Botani Putrajaya. It was built as a cultural exchange between Malaysia and Morocco.

Pantai Mek Mas, Kelantan

On the Pantai Mek Mas beach, there lies a bump of sand dune and no, we kid you not. One thing for sure is that this sand dune is not a natural phenomenon! Some people said that it is the remnant of a sand mining project. Many people flogged to this Kelantan beach for a photo or two, so again our advice is, come here during weekdays 😂.

What’s more, there is a mysterious natural phenomenon that happened recently where the seawater receded, leaving a 1-kilometre strip of sand in the middle of the beach leading to the sea. This phenomenon actually enabled people to be aquaman & aquawoman walk to the middle of the sea! How cool!

Klebang beach, Melaka

This is another beach with sand dunes! While the sand dunes are not as tall as that of Pantai Mek Mas, it is an interesting sight to see when water becomes stagnant in between the craters formed by the sand dunes, making it look like an oasis!

This is another man-made phenomenon caused by land reclamation activities from more than 10 years ago. Due to some land stability issues, the development project was then abandoned and left behind piles of sand with heights ranging from 10m to 20m. This beautiful white sandy “desert” is a popular spot among tourists and photographers. A few plants that managed to grow on the white sand dunes made it look like a real desert!

Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort

Basically, this place doesn’t really look like Palm Jumeirah but if you send a drone above it you will see a similar 🌴palm tree shape! Duped as mini Palm Jumeirah, there are a total of 315 water villas forming the long strips of leaves and tree trunk.

Madai Waterfall

Image Credit: @jake_anderson_ (IG)

One of the highest waterfalls in Sabah, this beautiful waterfall is about 40-Meter (5-storey) tall! One warning, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SWIM IN IT! This waterfall is a “Please Look but Don’t Touch” kind of place. This is because the water is too deep and dangerous for any recreational activities. There are 2 waterfalls here that will merge into one huge waterfall when there is heavy rain. The morning sun🌞 shining through the water droplets created from the powerful splashes of the waterfall produces beautiful streaks of white rays.

Gua Tempurung

Image Credit: @chrisng08_ (IG)

An underrated tourist attraction in Malaysia, Gua Tempurung is one of the longest caves in Peninsula Malaysia. It’s a cave that is suitable to be explored by people of all ages. The beautiful formations of stalactites and stalagmites are the main attraction here. This cave consists of 5 large domes that resemble 🥥coconut shells (is this why it's called Gua Tempurung⁉🤯) and are believed to have existed for more than 10,000 years! 😱Holy Macaroni!
