Lonely Planet had listed Malaysia as top 10 destinations to visit for 2014. Each year, Lonely Planet gives it's take on the next places to visit. Their book, out Tuesday (29 Oct 2013) highlights the best of the best of travel - countries and cities to visit, the best budget spots, the best family spots, everything.
The Guide Book Described Malaysia As "Like Two Countries In One, Cleaved In Half By The South China Sea." is the only country in Asia listed in the Top 10. This ranking suits well with the Visit Malaysia Year 2014.
They gave four reasons to justify the ranking and top of the list is "The Headline-Grabbers"
The second reason is "Amazing Experiences Await In Malaysian Borneo, From Exploring Off-The-Beaten Track Kudat where the northern most tip of Borneo located, To Indulging At The Luxurious Gaya Island Resort On Pulau Gaya."
The New Low Cost Terminal, KLIA2, Was Another Major Factor In Attracting More Visitors to Malaysia. While it is still to be open but it is much awaited by Low Cost Carriers and Malaysia has its Airasia and Malindo Air to benefit from this new 'airport'.
"Cycle Tourism" Was Highlighted For Active TravelersWho Can See Malaysia Through Guided Tours And Mapped Out Cycling Routes
