8 Best Countries For Malaysians To Visit Without Visa
From time to time, we read about Malaysia as one of the countries that hold the most powerful passports in the world. 

Well, power in this sense means we can travel to more countries without visa compared to others. 

Currently, our passport is ranked ninth place in 'The Passport Index 2019' by the Global Passport Power Rank, with up to 119 countries in our visa-free list.

So, if you are making travel plans in the coming months, here are the top countries for Malaysians to visit without visa:
 

#1 Cambodia

It is like travelling back in time.
Travel without visa: up to 30 days

Cambodia is rich in history and culture. All year long, people flock to this Southeast Asian country to visit the ancient temples, such as the famous Angkor Wat, Silver Pagoda, the sandy beaches at Sihanoukville, as well as the night markets and street food.

Peak tourist seasons fall on the drier seasons between November and May. If you don't mind sharing some of the popular attractions with crowds, this will be a good period to visit Cambodia because of the weather.

But if you prefer more peace and quiet, come during the monsoon season between June and October. Of course, you may have to wrestle with the rain and muddy landscapes at times.
 


#2 Taiwan

Some call Taiwan the next Japan.
Travel without visa: up to 30 days

Taiwan is fast becoming a hotspot among tourists these days because of its adventure landscape and nostalgic traditions. It is the perfect choice for those who love hiking and mountain trails as well.

Some of the best spots to explore include the Taroko National Park, Sun Moon Lake, Kenting National Park, Mazu Pilgrimage, and not forgetting, the exciting night markets and calming hot springs.

It is best recommend to plan your trip to Taiwan between April and November because the weather is not intense during this period with less frequent rain showers.
 


#3 South Korea

The place where tradition meets modern.
Travel without visa: up to 90 days

By now, South Korea needs no introduction. It still remains one of the most visited countries in the world, all for the array of cuisines, history and traditions, hi-tech cities, urban subcultures, scenic landscapes, and of course, K-pop.

You can visit places like Jeju Island, Huwon, Jeonju Hanok Village, Dongdaemun Market, and more to fully immerse yourself in the culture.

The spring time between April and June, and autumn from September to November are known to be some of the best times to visit this country.
 


#4 Mongolia

Experience the nearly extinct nomadic culture here.
Travel without visa: up to 30 days

Mongolia may seem rugged to outsiders, but it is an adventure destination where you can experience nomadic culture and vast untouched landscapes.

One of the highlights of this country include wild jeep adventures and rustic food at places like Ulaanbaatar, Gorkhi-Terelji National Park, Gobi Desert, Orkhon Valley and Khuvsgul Lake.

Despite what you may think, the best time to visit Mongolia is actually in the summer, which takes place between June and August. 

While May, September and October are quiet and less touristy, if you don't want the crowd.
 


#5 United Arab Emirates

It's quite close to what you saw in 'Fast & Furious 7'.
Travel without visa: up to 30 days

For most people, the first thing that comes to mind when talking about the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is Dubai, a city famed for its iconic skyscrapers, palm-shaped islands, city-sized malls, indoor ski slopes and palatial beach resorts.

But beyond that, there is a diverse collection of six more emirates that are equally alluring and distinct.

Some of the must-visit locations are the Burj Al Arab, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Emirates Palace, Burj Khalifa, Liwa Oasis, and Jebel Jais.

Plan your trips here in April, May, September or October to have the best experience. But for even better weather, consider coming in the winter from December to March.
 


#6 Morocco

This North African nation is one of the fastest growing travel destinations.

#7 Mauritius

Can we just jump into those blue waters now?

Mauritius is known for sapphire waters, powder-white beaches and luxury resorts. But beneath that shiny surface lies more, such as hiking in the forest and mountains, diving and snorkelling offshore, excurcsions to botanical gardens and colonial plantation houses, and more.

This country is also an excellent culinary destination, where the real Maurities sits far away from beach resorts within a melting pot of cultures and quiet fishing villages.

When you have the chance, visit spots like Mahebourg, Illot Gabriel, Black River Gorges National Park, Grand Bassin, Le Morne, and Rodrigues.

The peak season between mid-July and end of August can get quite hectic for travelling. So, try visiting around June or September for great weather and more laidback travelling.
