Kuala Lumpur: Sabah is among the top five states to visit this year, according to online lodging marketplace operator Airbnb.

With movement restrictions gradually easing, Malaysians are looking forward to resuming travel in the coming months and after an extended period of social distancing, many are, no doubt eager, for a getaway with their loved ones, it said. 

 “Airbnb’s recent Meaningful Travel Trends Survey 2021 found that Malaysians want to travel with family and friends, enjoy slower paced holidays and explore off-the-beaten path destinations closer to nature when travel resumes,” Airbnb said in a statement.

“Notably, Penang has emerged as the most popular go-to holiday destination within Malaysia among survey respondents, followed by Sabah, Kuala Lumpur, Terengganu and Johor.”

According to its internal data, Airbnb said its guests globally are also looking for listings that allow them to live and work anywhere. 

 “Wireless internet is the #4 top-searched amenity when guests search for Airbnb stays, while searches for gardens and backyards increased by 343% after the Covid-19 pandemic began,” said Airbnb. 

“Listings with basic cooking amenities are also now booked more frequently by guests.”
