Travel Bloggers List in Malaysia

Malaysia Travel Bloggers List

I hate to say it, but there is still a massive lack of travel bloggers in Malaysia, and just 10 years ago, I did a similar article but only to find that the change has been at a prolonged rate.

For 2020, I have sort of come up with a list of Malaysian Travel Bloggers to look out for. There are no mechanics to this list, only the fact that they travel and blog.

Malaysia Travel Bloggers Complete List

Firstly, let me inform everyone that the word 'Travel Blogger' in Malaysia is wrongly conceptualized by many industry people.

This is because almost everyone started with a food and general blog and eventually branched into travel.

You will have people stating that travel and food go together as a pair, and yes, I totally agree, but it all depends on how the person manages it.

The travel bloggers list below features Malaysians and non-Malaysians who write about Malaysia or are based in Malaysia.

Some of the blogs may be inactive or no longer writing, but on the last checking, they still updated their blogs in 2018.

Many travel bloggers are also casual bloggers, meaning they have a day job and blog as a hobby.

In the current day, the term 'Travel Influencer' would be what most people are referring to, which is considered social media travellers.

These are not included here as most travel influencers will only have an Instagram account, which does not count under the category travel blog.

PR Agencies, Advertising Agencies, and Internet Marketeers - If you are here to get information or contacts, let me tell you that I made this list simply based on the bloggers with no complete statistics.

I personally think that PR agencies should also do their own homework on the many bloggers listed here.

Pulling names randomly from this list will only result in a failed or bad campaign as you would not know who can reach your audience or even meet your KPI. Again I stress, not everyone on this list has the desired reach and numbers.

You will notice that many Malaysian bloggers cleverly brand themselves as Travel and Food, Food and Travel or Travel, Lifestyle and Food blog, hoping to cover as many genres as possible.

Simply said, a travel blogger's description is simply to blog about their travel experiences when they travel, know what I mean? Anyway, below is the list in alphabetical order.

Statistic Breakdown for the Malaysian Travel Bloggers

  1. A strong majority of the above are mainly Malaysia Lifestyle Bloggers who cover several genres, including everything. (Yet many claim they are travel bloggers)
  2. A number of them are mostly food, lifestyle and travel blogs. 
  3. A small portion is travel photobloggers, even though they claim they are travel but more photos than text in their articles. 
  4. Only a small handful of the above is pure travel bloggers who only write about travel. 
  5. While some of the travel bloggers above are active, many casual travel bloggers only blog once or twice a month. 
  6. A majority of them are working with full-time jobs while a small percentage of them are students or self-employed. 
  7. Some of the above blog in the Malay language, and some blog in dual language, English and Malay, Chinese, and English. 
  8. You should be surprised that there are no Indian travel bloggers who write in Tamil.  
  9. A majority of the travel bloggers are aged below 35 years of age, while a small handful is aged 35 to 50 years old. 
  10. A number of them are photographers who include their work in their travel or lifestyle blog.
The stats above are based on visiting the sites, meeting most of them, and monitoring their trends over the last five years.

There is no calculation of the results but judging from the style and delivery, the conclusion is closely assumed.

Conclusion

You can also view my earlier list of travel bloggers in Malaysia, which were done in 2011, and some of them are actually still active to this very day.

And if you are a Malaysian travel blogger and is not listed here, please leave your name and travel blog URL in the comment form, and I will update the list when possible.

If you are a foreigner living here, you can also submit your name to the complete Travel Bloggers List in Malaysia.

However, please note that I will update this list whenever I can do it, and it is not immediate. So you can go ahead and post in the comment form below.

Hi there! This is a great list, but like you wrote, a lot of them are no longer current. Plus, you missed mine! I've been living in Penang since 2013 and my blog is called Sand In My Curls https://sandinmycurls.com
Check it out!
