Although the travel ban hasn’t been lifted, that doesn’t mean that we can’t still travel locally. It’s time we appreciate our local tourist destinations and check out what our beautiful country has got to offer.
We have found a perfect islet made for all couples that are planning on a romantic getaway. Located a few minutes away from the heart of Penang, Pulau Jerajak that was once known as Malaysia’s Alcatraz is now vibrant as ever.
With a colourful LED garden, rainbow jetty pier and a swing on the beach like the movies, what else would you really need?
On top of that, it only takes a short 10-minute ferry ride from Bayan Lepas to get to this small island. So for those who easily get seasick, don’t fret — just hold it in. Like the saying, no pain no gain.
For those who are interested to explore the area, you can always join a special guided tour with two options: private or a join-in. The best part of it all, these tours come with a full-day itinerary and professional driver-guide who actually picks and drops you off to and fro from your hotel.
The main reason why you should visit this islet is that, not only is it underrated but it’s also completely dotted with many Instagram spots. Besides the jetty pier, swing and garden, there’s even a pretty stairway to heaven as well as colourful installations by the beach.
So instead of planning for a foreign vacation, go ahead and check out this pretty little island.
