Honeymoon High Life
In the cities, you’ll find a colourful jumble of cultural sights, chaotic food courts, sophisticated restaurants and chic cocktail bars. Get lost in the bright lights and sip on something bubbly against the backdrop of a twinkling cityscape.
Beyond the city limits, there are all kinds of activities up for grabs in inland Malaysia – from wandering through rolling green tea plantations to trekking through the jungle canopy and camping in the heart of the rainforest. There’s also a chance to visit more remote villages, learn about rural life and even stay at home with the locals. These experiences may be rustic, but they’re exciting and romantic all the same.
In the end, of course, it’s all about the beaches. We get that. Malaysia is home to a huge bundle of beautiful beaches and islands, so you’ll be spoilt for choice. Scattered in the turquoise waters off the east coast, there are all kinds of castaway islands to explore. You can even stay in your own private island paradise, far from the prying eyes of other tourists.
If you’re looking for a touch of luxury, Langkawi is a winner. A classic tropical paradise with sweeping curves of soft white sand, it’s sprinkled with candle-lit seafront restaurants, buzzy bars and pampering spas. Langkawi is no longer a secret, that’s for sure, but its boutique beach vibe has a character all of its own.
Can’t decide? How about some honeymoon island hopping? Spend up to a whole week, or even longer, sailing between a small handful of Malaysia’s east coast islands. While all of these islands are exotic stunners, they each have a unique atmosphere. Sink your toes into white sands, swing in a hammock, snorkel through coral reefs and soak up the sunshine.
