2. Sasaran Beach (Salan De Uyuni)
Only occurring during the full-moon (every month), so you might want to check it out here before you plan a field-trip with your family/friends here. Malaysia’s very own Bolivian infamous salt-flat.
The sky-reflective seawater is a perfect pic-ception moment that photographers/Instagrammers will never pass out on. Check out more on their website here.
