With 2018 winding down to a close, most of us are probably already thinking about our year-end getaway. That being said, one of the most annoying things about vacations is trip-planning. Ugh.
Not only do you need to make sure that you book the right flights and accommodation, you also need to meticulously plot your itinerary too.

Simply book your dream holiday from anywhere, anytime without the need for long queues and sleepless nights. With diverse packages and affordable flights & hotel deals to choose from, there is something for everyone!
Sounds too good to be true? Well, cast your doubts aside and take a look at these 7 amazing locations you could travel to with Expedia!
As one of the most popular travel destinations in Australia, the beautiful city of Melbourne deserves to be on the bucket list of any traveller.
Start at Flinders Street Station, the busiest railway station in Australia. The architecture is simply gorgeous and it is easy to see why the building is featured on so many postcards and brochures! Hunt for delicious eats at the Queen Victoria Markets, or go shopping at the Block Arcade to discover the rich culture of the city.
For an escape from city life, hike through scenic routes at the alluring Dandenong Ranges or visit St. Kilda to catch the little penguin troupe. Do not miss the Werribee Open Range Zoo and the Yarra River Cruise either! Whatever you choose to do, Melbourne has something for everyone!
As the city connecting Europe and Asia, Istanbul is a beautiful city of diverse cultures and traditions, best reflected in its architecture, people, and food.
The most famous attraction in Istanbul is the Hagia Sophia, an architectural marvel combining Byzantine Christian and Muslim influences. You will be at a loss for words as you gaze in awe at the exceedingly gorgeous interior. The only beauty that can match it is a cruise on the Bosphorus at sunset.
Other places of interest include the Topkapi Palace, which used to be the residence of the Sultans; and the Basilica Cistern, an underground structure built by the Byzantines to transport water all the way from present-day Bulgaria. For a shopping experience unlike any other, visit the historical Grand Bazaar.
Thanks to the K-Wave that is sweeping the globe, Seoul has become one of the most popular travel destinations in the world.
If you are on the prowl for interesting pieces of the rich history of Seoul, make your way to the famous Gyeongbokgung Palace and Hangeul Museum. Not only can you admire the preserved architecture of the most famous monument in South Korea, you can witness the changing of the guard too!
For a sense of the metropolitan lifestyle in Seoul, soak up the atmosphere at a cozy cafe in the bustling streets of Itaewon, hunt for cheap eats in Hongdae, or stroll along the romantic Han River in the evening. If you want to shop till you drop, hit up the streets of Myeongdong and the Lotte World Mall.
While many people plan their Tokyo itinerary to coincide with spring to see the cherry blossoms, did you know that the fiery autumn foliage in Tokyo is just as magical?
The best places to view autumn leaves are Ueno Park and by the Meguro River. You could also visit the Tokyo Imperial Palace Gardens but that is subject to opening hours. Next, for some truly fresh sashimi, it is worth getting up early in the morning to explore the famous Tsukiji Market.
Visit the Sensoji Temple in Asakusa to discover Tokyo and its ties to religious tradition before heading to Shinjuku and Akihabara to experience the ultra-modern side of the city. Remember to cross the iconic Shibuya Crossing on your way to Harajuku for some shopping therapy.
The capital city of Taiwan is synonymous with tantalising street food. That alone should be reason enough for Malaysians to visit this magnificent city!
As you would expect, one of the must-do activities in Taipei is to visit the famous Shilin Night Market for some unforgettable street food. After that, make your way to the glitzy Ximending District to experience the exciting nightlife of the city, all while marvelling at the iconic Taipei 101.
For a more laidback itinerary, get familiar with the heritage of the city at Liberty Square, or visit the largest Chinese art collection at the Taipei National Palace Museum. For some incredible natural scenery, make your way to Yehliu Geopark while the Wufenpu District and Taipei Main Station Underground Mall are all great places to shop for souvenirs.
As one of the top global travel destinations, Hong Kong welcomes countless waves of tourists throughout the year.
Some of the most popular things to do in Hong Kong include catching the Symphony of Lights at Victoria Harbour, riding the tram to Victoria Peak, and making a day trip to Hong Kong Disneyland. The best food (dim sum and more) can be found in the areas of Mong Kok and Tsim Sha Tsui.
Apart from that, being a shopping paradise, Hong Kong is full of exciting shopping options. Choose from traditional night markets (like Ladies Market in Mong Kok, Sneakers Alley on Fa Yuen Street, and Temple Street Night Market in Yau Ma Tei) or massive shopping malls like Harbour City and Times Square.
For a destination that is much closer to home, why not make Bangkok your next travel destination? It is one of the top travel destinations in Southeast Asia after all! As a conservative, traditional city, Bangkok is best known for its temples and historical buildings.
Make sure you make time for a visit to the Grand Palace, Wat Arun, and Wat Phra Kaew for a taste of the deeply-rooted cultural heritage in Bangkok. You could also head on over to Wat Pho to see one of the most iconic reclining Buddha statues in the region. If you want to see the city by boat, hop aboard a cruise along the Chao Phraya River.
For a unique experience in Bangkok, you will want to visit the bustling Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and the popular Khao San Road for some satisfying street food. Yaowarat Chinatown and the Chatuchak Weekend Market are also not to be missed.
