5 Outdoor Activities for Your Holiday Itinerary

5 Outdoor Activities for Your Holiday Itinerary

As we take the lid off on a brand-new year, surely most of us are excited to try something new, sustain something good or do something nice to make new memories for ourselves. The start of a new page feels almost like hitting the reset button or a fresh page of a blank notebook, waiting to be filled with ideas and inspiration.

Does being more active and taking more vacations part of your plan for 2024?

If so, here are some ideas to break a sweat in a fun way during your holiday:

1. Embrace the pulse of Kuala Lumpur

Take a full-day tour to explore the city’s highlights with a licensed tour guide. This excursion will provide the authenticity of Malaysia’s capital for its food, culture and places starting with the climb of 272 steps on a limestone hillside for Hindu shrines at Batu Caves. 

 

The tour is then followed by a visit to the Royal Selangor Pewter Museum, Thean Hou Temple, PETRONAS Twin Towers and ends at the King’s Palace.

Whether you are a local or a tourist visiting Malaysia, this is an amazing way to keep fit while learning interesting facts about Malaysia’s diversity. Upon seeing what KL has to offer, you might even feel a deeper sense of appreciation towards this beautiful country!

 

2. Enjoy crisp and clean air at Cameron Highlands

The enchanting Mossy Forest is deemed the oldest forest in Malaysia and is known for its misty and moist ambience. Much like the maleficent and mythical forest in fairy tales, taking a hike to reach its peak will be an unforgettable experience in nature. 

The trails up Mossy Forest can be challenging for new trekkers, but rest assured that you will be guided throughout your journey by an experienced guide. Don’t miss out on the chance to breathe in the cool air while you bask in the breathtaking greenery all around. This is the time to challenge your fitness goal and take part in a fun adventure!

 

 

This half-day tour begins with a swampy ride up on a Land Rover and ends with a relaxing BOH Tea Plantation visit for a true taste of Cameron’s pride. You can also enter the Strawberry Farm for free. 

 

3. Witness stunning sunrise from Gunung Pulai and Gunung Baling

Both Mount Pulai and Baling in Kedah offer beautiful panoramas of green foliage and viewing of sunrise that is hard to say no to. From as early as 2.00 am, your hike may begin with a local guide to ensure you don’t miss the break of day.

Situated at 2034 and 1791 feet above sea level respectively, these mountains are surrounded by paddy fields with the Ketil River flowing at its base. If you plan to head to the northern states of Peninsular Malaysia, Kedah is a must-visit to escape the hustle and bustle of city life!

 

 

4. Invigorate your senses at waterfalls in Siburan

An adventure in nature feels incomplete without finding the sound of the water upon hearing it amongst the tweeting of birds and chirpings of insects. It’s almost like the rule of the jungle to see the wonder of waterfalls at the end of a hike.

With approximately an hour from Kuching to Bengoh Dam, followed by a half-hour boat ride and a one-hour hike, you will reach the rejuvenating Susung Waterfall.

Here, you will also have the option to stay overnight to experience the best of Siburan including the exploration of Jurassic Park and Kampung Sting.

 

 

5. Smooth sailing around Komodo Island

Take your recreational activity to the next level with an awe-inspiring sailing experience at Komodo, Indonesia. This volcanic island is the land of Komodo Dragons and other unexplored marine life, offering many stunning diving spots.

 

Departing from Labuan Bajo as early as 6.30 am, your 2 days and 1 night tour will include a combination of hiking, swimming/snorkelling and simply relaxing at Komodo, Padar and Kanawa Islands, Pink Beach, Taka Makassar and Manta Point.  You can also opt for a two or three nights tour depending on your budget and time. We would highly recommend taking full advantage of the 4-day package to savour every magical moment at this picturesque sanctuary.

 

Altogether, each of these outdoor activities has its unique offering that will make your holiday more wholesome and fun. While it is important to unwind and take it slow to rest your mind and body, who says you are not allowed to mix some adventure in between your holiday? It’s an amusing way to keep fit and healthy.

 

Best of all, these activities can be done with your holiday partner, family or groups so that everyone can rejoice in nature together. Start organising and place your booking at www.myrehat.com to enjoy a special discount.

For ease of planning, here are the long weekends and suggested days to utilise your off days in 2024. Happy exploring!
