One of TV’s most versatile Malaysian actors, Ungku Ismail shares with us his fair share of travel stories.
What are the top 3 destinations on your Bucket List, and why?
I’ve never been to Switzerland, I’d love to see the scenery and the mountains there. Next would be New Zealand. Their Prime Minister, Jacinda Arden is such a wonderful person and after the whole Christchurch incident, it touches you to actually go and see the wonderful and kind people there. Finally, I think it would be India because I have heard of so many interesting things about India and I want to go and experience it for myself.
What is the one destination that you reckon everyone must visit at least once if given the opportunity?
Barcelona! I’ve been to Barcelona and it’s a fantastic place with a lot of good sports facilities. The people are so nice and beautiful, too.
Which cafe or restaurant will you always stop at when at KLIA or klia2?
I’m a big fan of Dome. I would actually just sit there and grab a quick munch when at klia2.
When going through KLIA or klia2, what services or facilities do you find most appealing?
I like how the signages at KLIA are very helpful so it's clear on where to head to around the airport so that you don't get lost or confused.
If you could go on a road trip anywhere in Malaysia, which destination would you choose and why?
I like Penang. There are a lot of things to do and a lot of different places to go to. They also have their own culture and slang. I think there are plenty of good spots to visit there.
What is your idea of THE perfect vacation?
My idea of a perfect vacation would be somewhere nice, cosy and not too expensive, definitely nothing too extravagant or too lavish! The perfect vacation is when I can spend as much time with my friends and family. I think it’s not really about the place, but rather, with whom you’re enjoying the moment.
