Hello July! I can’t believe 6 months have already passed since New Year’s Day. Mid-year typically triggers the wanderlust in me, my body and mind intensely crave for at least a short getaway with my babes! A few days ago, I was surfing the internet looking for spots not too far from KL which are perfect for a short weekend getaway. I stumbled upon some really cool places and I thought of sharing the list with you as well. You know what they say, sharing is caring. Let’s #TakeGoCar to these places and turn precious moments into beautiful memories. What say you? 😉

Unlike conventional hotels, this container hotel facing the scenic rice paddy fields of Sekinchan, would be great for urban travellers who seek for simple and cost-effective lodging. Sounds like my kind of place for a quick weekend getaway.
