Malaysians are feeling the blues amid the travel restrictions that have been implemented worldwide, a new survey revealed.

The majority of respondents (87%) revealed that they were unhappy about not being able to reunite with their families in “The Wanderlost Syndrome” study by travel platform Klook.

More recently, Malaysia has implemented another phase of the movement control order. During this period, all tourism activities cannot operate and interstate travel is not allowed nationwide.
