6 Staycation Destinations In Kuala Lumpur With That Overseas Vibe

Global travel is unlikely to return to normal anytime soon and staying cooped up at home for so long have only intensified our wanderlust. With KL still in the Recovery MCO mode, what can we possibly do?


A local staycation is the best option for some rewarding vacation time! You get to be a tourist in your own city while saving money and travelling time. Start jio-ing all your family and friends to explore the hidden crooks and nanny of KL. Of course, when you return back to your hotel, it can’t be any regular hotel. It has to exude an overseas vibe for you to truly feel on top of the world. Here are the 6 Staycation Destinations In Kuala Lumpur With That Overseas Vibe.
