Often travelers seek the same tried and tested locations, and getting away means sharing a hotspot with thousands of other tourists. But the alternative – going off the beaten track – can be far more rewarding.

The recent agoda Travel and Tech Study found that 54% of Malaysians like to travel to lesser known destinations.

agoda’s Global Director for Brand and Communications, Andrew Edwards, explains: “Getting away from the hustle and bustle doesn’t mean giving up great experiences when it comes to South East Asia. The region is dotted with many remote and luxurious locations for travelers, who don’t want to compromise on the good things in life, but still want a unique holiday.”

“Malaysian travelers can get a luxury or one-of-a-kind experience on almost any budget, depending on where they want to go. From the ubiquitous Bali, through to little known islands in Thailand and the Philippines, there are hidden gems dotted all over South East Asia for even the local tourists to discover,” he says.
