As I start crafting this post, Malaysia's world-renowned tourism has hit rock bottom all due to COVID-19 (April 2021 - but I'll keep this post updated in the future).
But rather than dwelling on today's crisis, I eagerly anticipate the return of the good old days in the near future.
UPDATE: Malaysia has announced visa-free entry for Indians until December 31, 2024.

Tips To Fly: ✈️
*Ensure your hand carry is limited to 7kg as exceeding it by just one kilogram can cost around 1500 Rs. Always double-check the weight and confirm if you have any additional luggage, especially when flying with AirAsia, it includes hand carry only, additional luggage need to take separately.
*Keep in mind that hand carry allowances restrict liquids to containers of 100ml or less.
*For those planning to have dinner in-flight, it's advisable to pre-book to enjoy a 20% discount on the meals.
*If you possess a credit/debit card offering airport lounge access, take advantage of the free amenities, including unlimited food, drinks, and a comfortable resting place.
*Be mindful of your flight timing. For instance, if your AirAsia flight is on May 16 at 00:20, plan to be at the airport on the night of the 15th. Many people face issues with this timing, so exercise caution to avoid missing your flight.
Consider purchasing a SIM card at the Malaysian airport, typically costing around 30 ringgit, offering unlimited internet and calls for a week. Note that if you have a tour package, they often provide a SIM card as part of the package.
