Malaysia is a country of extreme contrasts; five-star hotels rub shoulders with pristine coral reefs; a bustling capital city sits side by side with dense rainforest. Combined with Malaysia's various attractions and cultures, you are guaranteed a honeymoon like no other.
Why Malaysia Honeymoons?
This is the perfect destination for your first holiday as a married couple. Be adventurous, relax on beautiful beaches, experience luxury in spa's or take a trip to Malaysia's busy cities. This is a country that loves its food, delicious traditional and international cuisine can be found around every corner.
Things For Couples To Do
- The Petronas Twin Towers are an iconic landmark in Kuala Lumpur. The towers are joined together by a sky bridge which offers a spectacular view of the city. This would be the ideal place to get that perfect Malaysia honeymoon photograph.
- Go stand up paddle boarding together, this is a popular sport in Malaysia. This sport is much less demanding than regular surfing, making it appealing to all ages.
- Genting Highlands is a high-altitude hill resort in Kuala Lumpur, home to hotels, casinos and a theme park. Over 20 million people visit this attraction yearly, this 'City of Entertainment' is a popular addition to many Malaysia honeymoon itineraries.
- The colourful and multicultural capital city of George Town, Penang is worth exploring. This city has a fascinating history and was even listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2008.
Best Time To Visit
April-May: Probably the best time for a Malaysia honeymoon, as the weather is ideal for exploring the great outdoors, and you’re in before the summer rush. You should note that some restaurants may be closed or operating reduced hours during the month of Ramadan.
Try visit during the summer for the Rainforest World Music Festival. Held annually in the jungle near Kuching, this festival is an opportunity to see indigenous performers alongside musicians from all corners of the earth.
Why We Love Malaysia Honeymoons
“I loved Malaysia and found it very easy to get around and so laid back. I would recommend Penang and Cameron Highlands for something a little different. Cameron Highlands is stunning with its lush green tea plantations, Penang and Langkawi are great for a beach break. Of course, no visit would be complete without a stop in Kuala Lumpur.”
