The Journal of a “Blind Hiker”

How does an ageing community die out? Is Pahang’s best ikan patin really in Temerloh? And why would a Frenchwoman be at all remotely interested in migrating to a remote boat-building village in Terengganu?

WHY I TRAVEL is young journalist Aziff Azuddin’s impressions of an undiscovered side of his country. It’s an exploration of caves, fishing islands and antique markets, and meeting the individuals and communities that complete this national tapestry called Malaysia.
