Your Honeymoon Destination: The Beautiful Malaysia

When couples set a wedding date, the next obvious question is: Where do you intend to go for your honeymoon?

Definitely the choices are many and it all depends on the lifestyle preferences of the couple, their budget considerations and the memories they wish to have that will last them a lifetime.

Most couples nowadays will surf the net or visit travel agents for ideas and suggestions. For those who have never been to Malaysia, it will be an exotic choice, especially if they have always been fascinated by the Orient.

After all, there is no better place to represent Asia than Malaysia - from the landscape to the food, the festivals and the climatic conditions.

Whether you fancy relaxing on palm-fringed beaches, visiting vibrant culture rich cities or even island hopping from one paradise to another, Malaysia has it all. Malaysia is a truly diverse place that has all the makings of a great honeymoon destination.


A honeymoon in Malaysia offers brides and grooms a diverse array of things to see and do and getting to Malaysia from anywhere in the world is a breeze, as there is connectivity from most international airports in the Arab region. Flights are usually direct into Kuala Lumpur which means that you can be exploring everything that Malaysia has to offer within a few hours.

  • The city of Kuala Lumpur is worth a visit and it's an idea to set aside a few days to explore what it has to offer. Affectionately known as KL, it is a cosmopolitan and interesting city. Modern skyscraper buildings such as the famous Petronas Twin Towers sit in comfortable juxtaposition with fabulous old relics of the city's glorious past. If you have an eye for a bargain, then Kuala Lumpur, and indeed the rest of the Klang Valley in which KL sits, has some of the largest and best shopping malls in Asia. Here you can pick up some great bargains on electrical goods and designer clothes.

  • When you are all 'shopped out' and want to escape the hustle and bustle of the cosmopolitan city, then pay a visit to the stunningly beautiful islands of Penang, Langkawi and Kuantan. Here you can book into a gorgeous beach side hotel and get pampered to your heart's content. World-class spas, award-winning resorts and a good soak under the sun are all for the offering.

  • However, if you are into nature, culture, heritage and extreme sports, do not miss out on the fascinating island of Borneo where the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak lie. The biggest cave chamber in the world, world’s biggest flower, one of the tallest mountains in South East Asia, Orang Utan sanctuaries, world-famous diving sites and to-die-for cuisine are all found there.
