Let's face it, no matter how much we miss travelling overseas, many of us would probably still prefer to wait until there is a vaccine available for Covid-19. Or at least until the number of positive cases around the world has drastically dropped.

According to data from the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO), international tourist arrivals fell 22% in the first quarter of 2020, affecting millions of jobs and businesses globally. Fortunately, the agency also predicts that domestic tourism will recover faster, with signs of improvements by the end of this year. This seems to be the case for Malaysia, which is seeing a surge in demand for local flights, hotel bookings and holiday packages since the recovery movement control order (MCO) began on June 10.
