Beautiful photography spots in Malaysia
You may want to check out Christine’s collection of photographs taken in Malaysia titled “Hello, Malaysia!“
If you’re an adventurous photographer and have been to Malaysia to take shots, you’d probably know by now that there are a good number of ‘sweet’ photography spots around.
Whether your interest is on photographing landscapes (e.g. sparkling clean beaches with awesomely blue skies – Pulau Tioman), cityscapes (e.g. Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCC) from SkyBar), perspective photography (e.g. Putrajaya’s bridges are very famous for perspective photography), historical landmarks (e.g. Masjid Selat Melaka or A-Famosa), etc.
In fact, there are so many places for you to consider putting a dramatic image on in Malaysia that we couldn’t possibly name you all of them here – Waterfalls, caves, landmarks, cityscapes, religious monuments, hills, forests, etc.
Malaysia’s Most Photographed
KLCC is by far one of the probably most photographed buildings in Malaysia – Seeing that it’s an iconic building, with awesome surroundings and a good mix of greens around it.
So much for iconic buildings. If you were able to catch the “Eye on Malaysia” gigantic Ferris wheel, you’ll probably realize that this could be a nice place to take shots, too.
And back in those days “Visit Malaysia” promotional campaigns, Malaysia was somewhat branded to be an awesome ‘tropical island’ that will catch the eyes of many.
So on and so forth. These pictures could go forever.
Places to photograph in Malaysia
