We are fast approaching the middle of 2020. You have probably been saving for an amazing family trip overseas or a getaway with friends, or even planning your first solo trip abroad, which you planned to do sometime this year. Holidays are a great way to see new places (or refresh your memories of familiar ones) and connect with other people. No one could have foreseen 6 months ago that a pandemic would end up defining 2020 as a year in our lives. As you would have noticed, one of the biggest impacts COVID-19 has had on our economies and societies is the ban or restriction of travel, by land, sky, or sea.
This has impacted the lives of many individuals, whose life’s work was to ensure that our holidays are fuss-free, exciting, and memorable. Local airline companies like Malaysia Airlines and AirAsia have had to halt their services, only recently resuming operations for essential travel. Out local hotels are estimated to have made billions in losses following the Movement Control Order (MCO) implementation in March. Nearly half of the tours and travel company industries have closed down, while the remainder is struggling to keep afloat. However, Langkawi Adventures is still strong. With all their Langkawi tour package and other travel itineraries.
The Movement Control Order (MCO) was a necessary measure that has proven fruitful in efforts to curb the spread of the pandemic. Now, while international travel has been discouraged for the rest of 2020, and perhaps the early part of 2021, there is hope that the inter-region travel will return to normal by the third quarter of the year. Once that happens, what better way to show support for our local communities than going on your own Cuti-Cuti Malaysia!
Gems of Malaysia
There are many gems across our peninsula and East Malaysia that are perfect for the first time explorer and return traveler. One of the most popular ones is Langkawi, and it is well-deserving of its prominence. Many a child would have selected it as the subject of their English essay on a memorable trip with their family. Historically home to seafarers, the archipelago made up of 99 individual islands boasts lush rainforests and swamp regions, with flora and fauna as extensive as can be imagined.
The islands’ greenery and abundance of life are matched is complemented by the areas where the sand meets the sea. Langkawi’s beaches are some of the best Malaysia, and even the world has to offer. One can choose to have a lazy beach day or entertain yourself by participating in a variety of water sports offered by the various providers on your beach of choice. Langkawi has also become a well-frequented diving destination. Its waters are stocked with fantastic aquatic life and rock and coral formations which provide an amazing color contrast against the blue waters.
