Malaysia doesn’t lack vacation destinations, and with so many spots to choose from, how do you pick where to go?

Logic says to look at your budget, popular locations, and what activities strike your fancy. Those are important, sure, but in the name of fun, we’d suggest: look at your star sign too.

It’s said that astrology can be a good predictor of what’s ahead of you, and with that in mind, we’ve matched your horoscope to various travel experiences, personalised to your traits.

These are all paired up with Malaysian Airlines Berhad’s ongoing holiday package, MHvacaypass. It’s a travel pass with a 12-month validity that gives you two return trips within a year to several destinations, along with free unlimited date changes, and 35kg of check-in baggage allowance.

You can choose from various themed passes, according to your ideal holiday:

You’re impulsive, you love to explore and jump head-first into whatever seizes your attention at any given moment.

People born under this sign feel liberated by the excitement of an activity. 

Because you’re often temperamental too, submerging yourself in marine activities can be a release and a chance to cool off.

Your ideal holiday: Vitamin Sea

Destinations: Pulau Tenggol is a secluded island in Terengganu with various dive sites that cater to different levels of divers, from beginners to those more experienced. Scuba diving in Pulau Tenggol has a good range of sea life, from whale sharks to rare turtle species.

You Taureans love being pampered, and you tend to feel most comfortable when in a familiar setting. 

Some say that staying in a hotel room all day snuggled up in bed while watching movies is a waste of a holiday. 

But you’re a comfort creature, and there’s nothing else that beats the home-away-from-home feel of a lavish staycation with all the amenities in place.

Your ideal holiday: Sun Days

Destinations: Langkawi’s Pelangi Beach Resort & Spa is a resort giving visitors the feel of a cosy Malay village in Kedah. Each lavish room features a balcony, flat-screen TVs, and comes with beautiful views of either the beach, pool, or resort lake. For bites, you won’t even have to leave the resort, as your tummy will be taken care of by the beachfront restaurant, a swim-up bar, and more.

Being an air sign, you’ll thrive on a hiking trip with your closest friends while you explore the biodiversity of what nature has to offer, chatting non-stop until you reach the peak.

Your ideal holiday: Nature Trail

Moody and hyper-sensitive, you’re a water sign that feels deeply and is constantly riding the highs and lows of your emotions. 

Another homebody of the zodiacs, an ideal holiday is one where you can take your mind off your emotions and delve deep into relaxation. 

So how about letting the weight of your burdens float away in the pool, or kneaded out of you with some deep tissue massage at the spa?

Leos, you have an alluring presence and a natural ability to be the life of the party. You want to be where the action is, and will blossom in a place with a vibrant nightlife. 

Apart from night pubs, bistros, and dance clubs, night markets make for a great activity to immerse yourself and try the street foods the city has to offer. 

Since you’re always on the hunt to grow your material possessions, night markets are a good spot for you to flex your bargaining muscles too.

Your ideal holiday: Foodie Hunt

Always in search of knowledge, the mind of a Virgo is constantly working and overthinking. 

This means that vacations rarely equate to escapes for you, and you need to leave your comfort zone to be fully engaged. Going off the grid on a solo trip to indulge in a destination’s culture and history could keep your mind and body occupied in a healthier way.

Your ideal holiday: Heritage Discovery

Destinations: Gunung Mulu National Park in Miri, Sarawak is ​​where you can learn about the cave system and experience the Borneo rainforest.

Always in pursuit of connection, you love interacting with others and becoming a well-rounded person. 

Other than exploring, you like spending your time people-watching, which is why spending an afternoon café hopping in a culture-filled town can be your most fulfilling holiday experience. 

Not to mention, the aesthetic and picturesque cafés are where you’ll be able to seize the opportunity to take beautiful OOTD shots while on your trip.

Your ideal holiday: Foodie Hunt

Destinations: Sabah’s café scene has been booming over the past years. Nook Café, Flow Coffee, and October Coffee Gaya make for cosy spots you might find yourself chilling at all day over some coffee and (literal and metaphorical) tea with your favourite travel partner.

1Heart Maze Café is a great spot for people-watching too while you have some fun uncovering different photo spots located at every turn of the bubblegum pink maze.

Mysterious with an intense nature, as a Scorpio, you need to immerse yourselves in whatever you’re doing to fully escape your mind.

You love to delve beneath the surface to discover what’s hidden, especially when it comes to the nuances of other people’s intentions. Why not channel that energy into a snorkelling or diving trip and discover what’s beneath the azure waters?

Your ideal holiday: Vitamin Sea

With a natural craving for travel and adventure, you find it hard to get out of vacation mode once you’ve stepped into it.

You’re always looking for the next mountain to climb or the next ocean to cross. As a Sagittarius, you’d be thrilled to take the most difficult hiking trails, and you’d even spend the night camping in a jungle if you had the choice.

Your ideal holiday: Nature Trail

Destinations: Kuching’s Sebako Waterfall is situated in the Sematan or Lundu area. The hiking trail is known for its waterfall in the heart of the jungle. By following the source of water, you can climb up to the peak and be treated to breathtaking, panoramic views of the surrounding nature.

Goal-oriented and driven, you value educational and enriching experiences on your trip, as you need to know the vacation was a good use of your time. It’s why visiting cultural museums and historical landmarks would satiate your hunger for knowledge.

If you had the choice, you’d prefer to be left alone, and museums are perfect for that. Learning about each installation as a solo adventurer might just help you feel like you’re doing something productive.

Your ideal holiday: Heritage Discovery

Destinations: Indulge in Penang’s heritage sites like the Penang War Museum and Peranakan Museum to study the stories which shaped the island’s many cultures.

Your ideal holiday: Foodie Hunt

Destinations: Head to local Sabahan restaurants like Little Sulap Café to try ambuyat (a starchy sago dish), D’ Place Kinabalu for some butod (sago worms), or Latest Recipe Restaurant for ayam bambangan (chicken served with local mango).

An empath, you are extremely sensitive to others’ thoughts and emotions. Being a Pisces, you’re also known to daydream a lot, romanticising the idea of a relaxing retreat with your loved ones.

Drawn to a large body of water, you appreciate losing your thoughts in the stillness of a lake, or the flow of the ocean. So, an oceanfront hotel with such views would make for the ideal getaway.

Your ideal holiday: Sun Days

Destinations: Rebak Island Resort & Marina, Langkawi gives you a private island getaway for a stunning tropical staycation. Take your time to truly indulge in the secluded beaches and lush tropics around the resort, and enjoy a candlelit dinner at the resort’s romantic Moon Deck.
