The holidays are all about creating unforgettable memories and spending precious time together for Filipino families. This is the time when they travel out of town or overseas for a grand vacation.

If you’re a parent who’s still undecided on where to bring the fam — it’s already December! — fret no more because this neighboring Asian country may just be the perfect choice.

Home to some of Asia’s most unique theme parks, Malaysia is where family-friendly experiences abound. Expect hours of fun for everyone in these destinations:

Sunway Lagoon spells fun

Step inside Sunway Lagoon, one of Malaysia’s biggest and most diverse theme parks, with 90 attractions spread across six parks.

Have a splashing good time at the Water Park before bonding some more at the Amusement Park rides with the little ones. Experience the wild and interact with the animals at the Wildlife Park and then gear up for more action at the Extreme Park. Is everyone brave enough to face thrilling — and chilling — attractions at Scream Park?

Last stop is at the newest and first Nickelodeon-themed destination in Asia. Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon will enthrall the family with a lost civilization surrounded by lush, natural rainforest. It has 12 rides and attractions of different shapes and sizes.

Awesome awaits at LEGOLAND

Since its opening in 2012, LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort has been the most sought after by families all over Asia.

It has seven parks for all ages, namely The Beginning, LEGO Technic, LEGO Kingdoms, Imagination, Land of Adventure, LEGO City and Miniland. There’s also the stand-alone LEGOLAND Waterpark. With 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions, it is an inspirational land where the children are the heroes “building” their own adventures.

Family members both young and old are guaranteed to have a brick-tastic time at LEGOLAND Malaysia. Expect to squeal “Awesome!”in sheer delight.

Wind down at KL Tower

After entertaining visits at Sunway Lagoon and LEGOLAND, wind down at Kuala Lumpur Tower, one of the most prominent and distinctive landmarks in the country.

The whole family will enjoy a magnificent view of the capital from a soaring height of 421 meters! The communications tower, situated atop Bukit Nanas, is the world’s seventh tallest.
