Raya is a season where everyone goes back to their beloved hometown which in Malaysia we call it our "Kampung". People who have a "kampung" where their parents or grandparents stay will go back to their hometown to visit them especially during the Raya season. It cannot be denied that during Raya, "Kampung" is the best place to celebrate where we can cook together with our relatives, play with fireworks, catch up on things etc. But what about people who do not have a hometown? Where do they usual go? So, here are top travel spots in KUALA LUMPUR to head to if you don't have a "Kampung". Enjoy!
