Thinking to travel but not sure where to?

Well, you are in the right place, as we are going to present to you the 37 of Malaysia’s best travel blogs that are still active and write good quality travel information.

In the past week, we have gone through more than a hundred travel blogs in Malaysia to check whether they are still active, understand their stories and the purpose behind the blog and browse through their recent articles to ensure the quality.

In the process, we filter out a lot of them due to:

  • Inactivity – Some of them stopped in 2020, just before the pandemic, and that is the impact of the pandemic on these travel bloggers.
  • Low-quality articles – Too short or not informative.
  • Too diversified – they shared way too many different topics in their travel blog, which make them more like a general lifestyle blog.

And leaving the best travel bloggers in Malaysia for you to get travel inspiration, tips, guides, and information.
