From hiking in Hawaii to journeying towards Gokyo Ri on the Himalayas, these Malaysian photographers take their Instagram followers on picturesque adventures as they traverse the world and encapsulate the life of the places they travel to in stunning images—travel and photography have never looked better together. The only drawback of scrolling through their feeds? You would wish you were there too.

So Razlan doesn’t go beyond the borders as much as the others in this list do, but he travels around Malaysia quite a bit, and what he does excellently is capturing life on film—unedited, raw and beautiful.
