This year, Labour Day is going to be a long weekend for many workers in Malaysia. If you’ve always wanted to go on a short trip over the weekend, there are several best places to go near Kuala Lumpur for Labour Day weekend:
- Genting Highlands
For those with children, a quick 40-minute journey to Genting Highlands would be great if you’re looking to have some fun and play games. The hill resort has indoor and outdoor theme parks and plenty of entertainment for visitors of every age. Accommodations range from budget hotels to five-star lodgings.
- Colmar Tropicale
Another high-altitude attraction is Colmar Tropicale, a French-themed resort modeled after a 16th-century French town called Colmar in Alsace, France. If you’ve always wanted to experience living in a French village, the journey to Colmar Tropicale takes about an hour from Kuala Lumpur.
- Cameron Highlands
Nature lovers would love spending some quality time in Cameron Highlands, with a journey that will take about an hour. Major attractions include picking strawberries or tea leaves at the farm and hiking up the hill to enjoy the scenery. It’s also the place to be for a family get-together, where you can rent a colonial style bungalow and throw a BBQ party.
- Malacca City Center
The journey to Malacca city center takes about two hours from Kuala Lumpur, but if you’re a history buff, it’s worth the trip. From A Famosa to Christ Church, there’s plenty of fascinating history and stories to be discovered.
- Port Dickson
If you and your family prefer somewhere sunny with plenty of water for swimming, Port Dickson is only an hour and 18 minutes away from Kuala Lumpur. Recommended activities include visiting an ostrich farm and barbecuing by the beach, which Port Dickson is mostly known for. You can rent a Port Dickson chalet in Malaysia where you could have some privacy and fun.
Once you’ve decided where to go on your Labour Day trip, it’s best to book the accommodation in advance. Not only will you get the best deals, but you can also start planning your itinerary based on the location and accommodation of your choice.
