  • 9 Honeymoon Destinations You Have Yet To Discover In Malaysia

    You must have heard that Malaysia is slowly easing its traveling restriction. Even though international travel has yet to be permitted, domestic traveling is possible. Thus, we can take this opportunity to discover the hidden gems in Malaysia. Who says that you need to go far for a honeymoon gateway? And if you think that Malaysia is not an ideal location for a honeymoon destination, you might want to reconsider that! via GIPHY Check out these 9 romantic honeymoon destinations in Malaysia! 1. Rawa Island Image Credit: Rawa Island Resort Skip the more popular islands like Tioman Island and Perhentian Island and head straight to Rawa Island to discover the pristine beauty of this island. This small island is located in the vicinity of Johor Bahru, despite its small size, there are plenty of activities to do here!In Pulau Rawa, you can book one out of the two resorts that are available here; Alang's Rawa Resort and Rawa Island Resort. Both would give you some of the best views of the vast sea and amazing packages for various water activities. If you're bringing kids, let them have fun at the water slides! Apart from water activities that you can do in Pulau Rawa, you can hike The Hilltop Walk, which only takes around 40 minutes. It's worth the effort and time once you reach the top because the panoramic view of Rawa Island is something you and your spouse shouldn't miss. 2. The Banjaran Hotsprings, Ipoh Image Credit:The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat, Ipoh on Facebook Ipoh is a city full of cultural trails and historical monuments. You and your spouse may choose to explore Ipoh because of its heritage, but what I want to highlight here is The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat. The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat will give you a one in a lifetime experience and a perfect choice for your luxurious honeymoon getaway. The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat is Malaysia's first natural Hotsprings wellness. You can relax and enjoy nature here while being surrounded by limestone hills, rainforest, natural caves, and waterfalls. Explore the caves, visit the library, or take a dip in the geothermal hot spring. With the resort having about 45 villas available and no kids below 12 are allowed to stay, The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat will guarantee you an intimate time with your spouse. Do take note that alcohol is served throughout the resort. 3. Mabul Island Image Credit: Tourmab Mabul Island is located in Sabah and is a popular destination for divers. But this doesn't mean Mabul Island is not for you! The aqua ocean and beautiful reefs will reel you in. If you and your spouse enjoy snorkeling and kayaking, then you should check out this island. Isn't it nice to be kayaking on a Molokini, a transparent kayak, and witness the underwater marine life? Definitely, a good alternative if you can't dive or snorkel. Once you have experienced the water activities, go ahead and watch the sunset with your spouse. Mabul Island offers you a great view of both sunrise and sunset. Another activity that you should do here is stargazing. With low light pollution, you can witness the Milky Way galaxy at night. What a way to end the day with your loved ones! 4. Bentong Image Credit: Ryan Chu on Unsplash If you are considering Genting Highlands as your honeymoon destination, you might want to check out Bentong instead. Located on the western side of Pahang, you can escape the hectic city life and enjoy what nature has to offer you here. Of course, the things that you should be looking forward to will be exploring nature. Known for its mountainous terrains, you may see yourself surrounded in greeneries. Enjoy the fresh air with your spouse at the Japanese Garden or picnic by Lentang Recreational Forest. When planning for a place to stay at, you should check out these Muslim-friendly resorts in Janda Baik; Chengal Hill Retreat and Fifty4Ferns. They only served Halal food and no alcohol allowed on their premises. 5. Serendah Another foresty destination you may want to consider is Serendah. This destination is best if you and your spouse are an outdoor person. Discover the beauty of Waterfall Forest Park Kanching. Be ready to hike through the 7 levels of Kanching Waterfall as the difficulty varies at each level. If you want to skip the hiking and head for adrenaline activities, there's dirt biking that you can try at Moto Maniac. Also, it is worth checking out Sekeping Serendah Retreats. Providing an eco-tourism accommodation, you can spend quality time with your significant others away from the bustling city life. Think about the greeneries and the meal shared under the stars, it will definitely leave great memories for both of you! 6. Kuching Image Credit: Farizal Resat on Unsplash Experience the beauty of what Kuching has to offer by renting a Sampan down the Sarawak River. Kuching is not only about the stunning waterfront, but also a city full of cultural and historical aspects. Go on a museum hop with your significant others like the Sarawak Museum. Discover places to shop at and dine in at the Waterfront after taking a relaxing walk. Also, don't forget to view the Kuching Mosque and marvel at its incredible architecture. As Kuching means "cat" in Malay, you should not miss out on the Cat Museum. To add up a little bit of adventure to your honeymoon getaway, how about hunting down the cat statues around the city? But let me break it to you that the city's name might not be derived from the Malay word. Then again, it is worth discovering all these cat elements around the city. 7. Malacca Image Credit: Tammy on Unsplash Being one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Malacca has so many to offer to everyone. Considering Malacca as your honeymoon destination won't be a disappointment. Explore the historical landmark with your spouse and discover various museums that you can visit. After a long day walking around the town, hopping from one museum to another, it's time to hunt down for food. And isn't it fun to hunt down food with your loved ones? Malacca has arrays of food stalls ranging from local, Westerns, Chinese to fusions. Beat the heat by getting your sweet tooth fix at Klebang Original Coconut Shake or Cendol Kampung Hulu. No matter how long you are planning to stay in Malacca, the choices of Halal or Muslim-friendly food are endless! 8. Lake Kenyir Image Credit: MOHD HAFIZ YAHYA on Unsplash Believe it or not, Lake Kenyir is a man-made lake, said to be the largest in Malaysia. Located in Hulu Terengganu, this destination is set for couples who love outdoor, and definitely those who are not scared of water. Fishing is one of the popular activities here as river fish has adapted to its ecology. You can also go for jungle trekking and caving and experience the nature around. Lake Kenyir offers a once in a lifetime experience to spend a night on a houseboat. There are some other resorts and chalets that you can choose from, but why not go for something different and create special experiences with your significant other. 9. Kuala Lumpur Image Credit: Izuddin Helmi Adnan on Unsplash Lastly, in this list, let's not forget about the capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur. This metropolis city has so much to offer. There are endless options to shop, various food stalls to eat at, and so many things to discover. Of course, one of the touristy things to do is to witness the Petronas Twin Tower. If you are craving some local street food and want to experience the feel of a night market, there is Tapak Street for you to check out. You can also take a walk at the KL Forest Eco Park, suitable for anyone as it is not as rugged as any hiking trails. Kuala Lumpur might be deemed as an overrated city to visit, but if you look at every nook of what this city has to offer, it is worthwhile. After all, you are visiting with the love of your life, so there is nothing that can beat that! Do you believe it now that Malaysia owns some of the best honeymoon destinations? These 9 destinations might not seem romantic at first glance, but now that you know they are, isn't it time to start planning? And once it is safe to travel, set off with your significant others for an incredible journey together. via GIPHY...
