How to spend a weekend in Malaysia

1. WHERE TO STAY: If you are visiting Malaysia for the first time, you’re likely to land in the capital; Kuala Lumpur. There’s no better place to start!

CHINA GUIDE: Jiuzhaigou and Chengdu

Getting to Jiuzhaigou was extremely hard! As the whole trip was last minute, I tried planning whilst there, the google ban in China didn’t help!
