Malaysia is a fantastic destination for couples to travel to on a honeymoon or romantic getaway, with its great variety of attractions and accommodation.
Enjoy a romantic getaway to Malaysia
Start off your romantic couples’ getaway or honeymoon with a visit to Kuala Lumpur, the capital. Here you can experience the city’s bright lights and sophistication. Make your way up the Petronas Twin Towers, which reach heights of over 450 metres. Here you’ll get a magical view of the city and can even cross the skybridge that connects the two buildings. See Kuala Lumpur from dizzying new heights with your sweetheart, and take a pic to commemorate the romantic occasion!
Shop at some of the world’s biggest malls, including the BBKLCC, which has a huge selection of fashion stores and entertainment. Then there’s the bustling Central Market, a cultural heritage site full of local handicrafts and treasures. Cultural events and artwork can be seen in the Central Market Outdoor Stage, which also hosts many special festivals. Who says shopping can’t be romantic – when you’re with the one you love, everything is blissfully romantic!
Why not head out of the city to Penang? On the nation’s northwestern coast this cultural and beachside gem is a heavenly haven for romantic couples’ getaways or honeymoons. The golden shores of Batu Ferringhi Beach are lined by luxury resorts and full of life with a night-time bazaar and plenty of cafes and eateries. Then visit Kek Lok Si, also known as the Temple of Supreme Bliss, the largest Buddhist temple in Southeast Asia and an architectural marvel.
Or head to eastern Malaysia with a visit to Sabah and Malaysian Borneo. Here you can experience Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary, which is home to these fascinating and adorable primates. Watch them feed, play and roam through the forest and watch out for the region’s amazing bird life, too. This is truly a romantic experience like no other, as these creatures are incredibly human-like in their features and behaviour.
Take some time to explore the area and visit the Rainforest Discovery Centre, or take a romantic stroll along a canopy walkway that provides breathtaking views.
For the ultimate in romance, why not visit Langkawi Island? This gorgeous land of emerald forest and sapphire ocean is a peaceful, traditional place where you can relax and unwind in true tranquility. Enjoy the sumptuous standards of gorgeous local resorts, head up by cable car to Mount May Cincang for some beautiful views, or head to the local Hot Springs for a dip. Both utter relaxation and romantic adventure are on offer on this beautiful island.
