Your Horoscope Destinations in Malaysia

Instead of reading newspaper, I always start my morning by log in to this Travel with MSN Malaysia website (besides facebook and my blog). And I saw one of this latest article which caught my attention. So, I decided to share with you all here. Consider part of my job right, as a so-so travel blogger.

Select your travel destinations by your star signs.

Whether or not indulging in horoscope is your cup of tea, it's interesting to find out what your star signs have to say about your holiday destinations. We have carefully handpicked these horoscope locations in Malaysia to give you some travel insights into each Zodiac sign.


Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Adventurous and eager, the Aries never holds back; their courageous and dynamic traits are what make them always ready for action!

>>WHERE: Lata Kinjang, Perak

This majestic fall is one of the tallest in Malaysia! Only a fraction of the falls can be seen from the North-South Expressway while the entire cascade of waterfalls actually flows from 850m above. This trip will make a perfect one for the eager and dynamic Aries as getting to the falls itself requires a steep half an hour climb from the stalls where you can park your car at; the rushing waters and crisp air will be a wonderful award after the strenuous climb.


Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

Material possessions and everything fine and beautiful never fail to attract the Taurus; they are noted for their strength and sensuality, they also appreciate fine linens and clothing.

>>WHERE: National Craft Complex, Kuala Lumpur

Perhaps the idea of spending the day creating batik at the Craft Village here will be enticing for the creative Taurus who enjoys making things with their hands. Traditional handicrafts such as sculptures, pottery, wood carvings and ceramics can also be attained at the Karyaneka Craft Boutique. The Craft Museum, on the other hand, highlights Malaysian textile heritage and displays traditional Malaysian handicraft.


Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)

A Gemini is curious and mentally active; fun to be around, a Gemini also make good light hearted social encounters. The other one out of two distinctive sides of a Gemini would be the contemplative, more serious and indecisive one.

>>WHERE: Mulu National Park, Sarawak

Opt for cave or forest activities - take on the world's longest tree-based Mulu Canopy Skywalk to learn more about life in the forest canopy; alternatively, explore the extraordinary limestone and bat caves. The outgoing and communicative Gemini will also enjoy overnight group expeditions comprised of longboat rides and jungle trekking; versatility as part of a Gemini's trait will shine through here. Expect spectacular scenery and an eye opening experience amidst 52,000 hectares of equatorial rainforest.


Cancer (June 21 - Jul 22)

A Cancer is sensitive and sentimental as well as intuitive. Their love is protective and while this love can become smothering, it can also be nurturing.

>>WHERE: Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary, Sandakan

These highly intelligent Orang Utans are an endangered Malaysian wildlife species that can be found in Borneo - devoted and empathetic Cancerians may find the rehabilitation efforts at the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre engaging. Amidst 5529 hectares of rainforest here, there is a board walk that leads to a viewing gallery and feeding platform. The more explorative Cancerian can also apply for a permit from the Forestry Department to trek 5km through a mangrove forest.


Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)

Leos are dramatic and outgoing; they take the spotlight and are of a warm spirit. Fiery and creative, Leos are leaders whose charms could be hard to resist.

>>WHERE: Sungai Klah Hot Springs, Perak

Rest assured that the self-assured Leo will be surprised at the number of activities available at this natural hot spring. Apart from being able to boil eggs in wire baskets at a designated part of the spring, board walks, water reflexology, traditional massages and private Jacuzzis are also available. The magnetic charm of a Leo will make this trip a memorable one - be it with friends, lover or family.


Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

Virgos are dedicated creatures; delicate and gentle, they manifest a great sense of caregiving. Their competence and intense focus on current passions could be highly rewarding.

>>WHERE: Pulau Pemanggil, Johor

Famed for its abundant marine life and clear sea waters, this remote island is also known for deep-sea fishing and diving. There is also a massive and sacred boulder known as the Batu Buau which lies in the middle of the island. The analytic and gentle Virgo will enjoy fishing here! It will be worth the travel just to be able to spend a few days basking under the glorious sun, quietly fishing in the midst of an unpolluted sea.


Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)

The Libra seeks balance in every aspect of life. Sociable and peace loving, this sign enjoys being in the company of others. Libras have winning personalities and are effective strategists.

>>WHERE: Longhouse Tours, Sarawak

There are 27 different ethnic groups in the Sarawakian rainforest; some of the tribal groups being the Dayak, Iban and Bidayuh. Communal longhouse dwellers are welcoming and well known for their hospitality; the Libra will enjoy their welcoming traditional dances and ceremonial songs. A number of places for consideration - The Skrang River, the Lemanak River, Batang Ai and Annah Rais.


Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Scorpios are passionate; they exude certain intensity but maintain a cool exterior. Beneath the exterior, however, lie deep and active emotions that a Scorpio may not want to express. Scorpios make great leaders and are resourceful.

>>WHERE: Colmar Tropicale Bukit Tinggi, Pahang

2,500 feet above sea level, Colmar Tropicale is a view of north-eastern 16th century French buildings. The passionate and penetrating Scorpio would love soaking in the ambience while being entertained by jugglers, bands and snake performances over an authentic French meal at Colmar Square - that which lies in the middle of the village.


Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

The Sagittarius has a natural tendency towards travel, adventure and philosophy; they hold a broad-minded approach to life and are always on the lookout for deeper meaning - a seeker of knowledge and wisdom.

>>WHERE: Gua Tempurung, Perak

Gua Tempurung is a magnificent world of stalagmites and stalactites; there are many spectacular rock formations here, some given names in accordance to the shape it takes - First Lady, Zorro eyes, Dainty Foot Lady amongst the many. The traveller trait in each Saggitarius will know how to appreciate the beauty of one of the longest caves of Malaysia. Choose from a variety of cave tours or expeditions according to desired difficulty and length.


Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

Capricorns set high goals for themselves and hold to professionalism; they also maintain traditional values and attain self-satisfaction from personal accomplishments. These independent creatures are serious minded and practical.

>>WHERE: The Armed Forces Military Museum, Negeri Sembilan

Honoured with a Merit Award under the "Best Tourist Attraction" category by Tourism Malaysia, this museum is informative as well as interactive. Experience a showcase of tanks, vehicles, canons and artefacts dated from 1933. Capricorns will be able to provoke and harbour expanding thoughts through experiencing the Malayan Communist Party's underground tunnel and the Pepper Ghost illustrations.


Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

This intellectual air sign is shy yet energetic; they are quiet and eccentric deep thinkers that hold interests in concepts and ideas.

>>WHERE: Pulau Dayang Bunting, Kedah

The direct translation of the island's name is "Island of the Pregnant Maiden" and behind this name lies the legend of how a man named Mat Teja fell in love with a beautiful fairy princess by the name of Mambang Sari; the princess gave birth to a son whom died shortly after, Mambang Sari then blessed the lake by putting her child to rest there. The imaginative yet eccentric Aquarius will experience rejuvenation as they take time out amidst legend and nature.


Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

A Pisces is spiritual and gentle; this fish sign creatures are affectionate and perhaps the most understanding of all signs. Besides being accepting and emotionally expressive, a Pisces also has a strong and vibrant presence.

>>WHERE: Mabul Island, Sabah

A Pisces would thoroughly love this beach getaway. Set aside off the south-eastern coast of Sabah, this little fishing village is now also a popular diving spot. Go prepared with water proof camera casings for underwater shots of the marine life; note also that it is possible to explore the entire island on foot!

I not sure whether it is accurate or not but I am certainly love with the answer for my horoscope. Mine is the last one, Pisces. Pisces is the icon of fish and guess that fish loves to swim. Hahaha...Hope you all enjoy reading this article.
