Malaysia 'is a premier tourist destination'

Holiday destinations in Asia have been popular among Aussies for quite some time now.

Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore have always been attractive to people from down under, as flights to these places are relatively short and have become far more affordable over the years.

With the Aussie dollar currently very strong, Asian countries also offer fantastic value for money, as the cost of living is so low.

One place that Aussies may start to consider more when booking their annual vacation is Malaysia, as tourism chiefs believe it is a "premier destination".

The tourist board has received two Pacific Asia Travel Association awards for its work to promote the nation worldwide and it seems their efforts have encouraged a lot more people to head to Kuala Lumpur.

Like most other Asian locations, Aussies will benefit from some of the best exchange rates when visiting this part of the world, with one dollar getting you in the region of 3.24 Malaysian ringgit.
