Everyone is dying to go on the next holiday after being cooped up at home, and most of you might be thinking of places like Bali, Japan, Europe, etc. However, you don’t need to go far for your next adventure! Malaysia has a multitude of holiday vacation options for the whole family. Some may prefer relaxing getaways on an island while others seek for adrenaline inducing thrills.

Now, if you’re an adrenaline junkie, you’re probably going to want a solid and practical car to match your personality… and to get you to all your adventures fuss-free!

So, which adventure should you go on? Plenty! But to narrow it down, here are four fun activities right in our own country…

#1 White Water Rafting At Gua Tempurung

One of the most famous places for white water rafting has to be Gua Tempurung in Gopeng, Perak. Probably the largest cave in the country, there are a slew of extreme activities and casual fun for all sorts of visitors.

Be sure to put on your quick-dry clothes and keep important things in a waterproof bag!

If Gua Tempurung is a bit too far for you, you can always visit places like Sungai Selangor in Selangor, Sungai Sedim in Kedah, Jeram Besu in Pahang, and Sungai Kiulu in Sabah.

How much will this cost you: RM175 - RM250

You’ll need a car which has a powerful engine so that you can have a smooth acceleration to reach your destination in style. However, the car should also be equipped with petrol saving functions as well to ensure you can drive wherever and still save money on petrol.

Besides that, road trips require a large cabin space so that the entire family can sit comfortably for hours, and you’ll need a large trunk to lug along all your luggage bags, sports equipment and necessities in the low floor, wide opening trunk space.

#2 Rock Climbing At Bukit Keteri

If you love a rock-climbing challenge—or even if you’re just a newbie, Bukit Keteri is an option. The crag has bolted about 50 sport climbing routes ranging from easy to extremely difficult ones.

This destination is also popular with the Perlis royal family, who are keen climbers. In fact, the Crown Prince, Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail and his wife, Tuanku Lailatul Shahreen Akashah Khalil, were the first to climb the crag!

How much will this cost you: RM60 - RM80 per person

Of course, you’ll need to set out early to go rock climbing because nothing beats the view of the sunrise on the summit. For better visibility, make sure your car has headlights that emit bright white light and FOG lights for those early morning drives to the cliff.

#3 Caving in Gunung Mulu

The spectacular Mulu National Park took 60 million years to create! It’s one of the most important natural sites in South East Asia and cannot be missed. There are multiple caves to explore such as their Deer Cave and Clearwater Cave, where you can witness the beauty of our natural flora and fauna.

A guide will be present to bring you through the routes while explaining the many wonders of the caves. So, it’s also an educational tour!

How much will this cost you: RM35 - RM70 per person

Getting there can be pretty tricky though, so you’ll need a car that suits your driving style and a good navigation and entertainment system. Opt for a car which has both the cruise control function and paddle shifts so you can drive comfortably. Ensure you have a good functioning GPS as well!

#4 Waterfall Abseiling at Sungai Pisang

Though waterfalls may be a relaxing getaway for the family, there’s also a more extreme way to enjoy it! Imagine rock climbing on a waterfall but instead of going up, you’re heading DOWN.

A pretty popular place to enjoy this activity is at Sungai Pisang, Gombak, Selangor. Breathe in fresh air, feast your eyes on the lush greenery and most importantly, feel the current of river.

So, where will your next thrilling adventure be? While you decide on that, you may also want to consider upgrading your car to a ride that matches your thrills.

Safety isn’t an issue either as the HR-V RS is fitted with six airbags, Hill Start Assist (HSA), Auto Brake Hold (ABH), Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) and more. However, the highlight would be the Honda LANEWATCH which enhances the side view while reducing blind spots for safer lane changing.

Whether you want a smooth consistent drive or full control of your car’s driving experience, you can enjoy the best of both worlds with the HR-V RS ‘ Cruise Control and Paddle Shift.

Meanwhile, you can make use of the steering wheel where you can control everything right at your fingertips. Answer calls at the touch of a button or change songs effortlessly, so you can keep your hands on the steering wheel and your eyes on the road.

The 7” display also allows for a clearer look at the map when you’re navigating.

Honda understands that people like options as well. Though a black interior is easy to maintain having only one colour to choose from can be quite boring. However, lighter colours are difficult to maintain too.

For an extra sleek factor and a colour dark enough for easy maintenance, the HR-V RS is available in a leather dark brown interior! From front to back, the Honda car is covered in leather in the brown shade—the first time Honda has introduced this colour in Malaysia.
