It’s 2021 and we’re still stuck in a pandemic. Due to that, most of us are stuck at home or, at most, restricted to the boundaries of each state. You could just stay at home and watch movies. Though, Malaysia travel blogs can help cure your boredom a bit. I think I speak for most of us when I say we miss travelling. We miss going outside without a mask too. What we miss the most is just the ability to visit home or just move around without constrictions.
I didn’t mean to make you miss it even more but hey, The Cool Bears are here to help you out a little bit. One of the reasons why Malaysia travel blogs can help with that is because they could make us experience travelling without actually going out. Travel bloggers are often very detailed in how they portray their trips. You’ll certainly feel like you’re there when you read their blogs. Even though it’s not the same feeling as physically travelling, it might give you some solace while you’re stuck at home. So read on to know a few travel bloggers who can give you a good reading experience:

Writing her blogs as early as 2014, Michelle Phua has always been passionate about writing. Just so you know, Michelle is the owner of AlexandraLuella.com and her writing is quite the read. She thought of travelling as her muse to write so she could write more and more. She’s happy to be able to travel and write freely throughout the years since writing is sort of her way of expressing herself.
Later on, her need to see more, grew. She also grew a liking towards art, especially modern paintings and provocative photography. She’s been to almost anywhere you can think of. From Croatia to Turkey to so many places in Malaysia too!
Her style of writing is always a pleasure to read and she always adds just a tad of sarcasm to make it more interesting. It’s just so nice to read and honestly, you won’t be able to stop reading until you get to the end of the post. She has blogs of her personal stories too and I personally find them captivating to read. However, now she has sort of stopped focusing on blogging and she is currently a lawyer in London. Nonetheless, her blogs are still up and she has also added a whole section on her blog for her London journals.
Incorporating good story-telling as well as a lot of photos, Meitzeu.com is a blog ran by a Sabahan blogger who brings us wherever she goes. She fills up Meitzeu.com with not only travel experiences but travel guides, food reviews, product reviews, hotel reviews and much more!

Her blogs are very interesting and concise too which makes it even more worth it to read. Plus, she makes her blog available in both English and Chinese so a wider range of people can read and find out more about places around the world.
The places that she’s visited include most of East Malaysia, Dubai, Hong Kong, Turkey, Vietnam and a lot more places. For each of the places she’s been to, she’s also included plenty of food blogs. Thus, making it easier for you to plan out your holidays, dinner dates or a simple staycation in KL.
