Malaysia’s east coast is the top spot to catch some rays for those living in KL — it’s cheap and easy to reach by plane on one of the country’s budget airlines, even for just a long weekend. The water is crystal clear, the beaches are powdery soft and blindingly white.
I went to Pantai Cermin last weekend while driving past Port Dickson and stopped at the beach there. It's really nice and the water is crazy warm. There's millions of teeny tiny crabs, it's a really unique place.
