  • 11 Best Places To Visit In Greece For First-Timers

    As the world slowly moves away from a total lock-down, it is time to start thinking of taking a holiday again! With many countries opening airports for international travel, Greece started this process slowly and steadily on 15th June and is now moving towards welcoming travelers across all its beautiful islands. While taking the required precautions and also adhering to the new rules for tourists in this COVID-19 era, we are still excited to plan a trip to Greece to welcome a new sunrise as we start thinking, “let’s travel and enjoy other cultures and countries again!” Greece has so much to do and see, that choosing the best places to visit is a hard task. However, as many parts of Greece boast many historical sites, panoramic beaches, charming villages, mouthwatering food, sunny climes, and lots of shopping, we are ready to try out these 11 places in Greece as our first adventure for 2020!. As first-time travelers, we were overwhelmed with everything there is to do and see in Greece, including Greek island and beach hopping. After much research, this is what we have on our agenda for the Greek Islands as first-time travelers to this popular holiday destination. Let's dive in! via GIPHY Athens Image Credit: Photo by Adrian Dascal on Unsplash The capital of Greece is our first choice of cities to visit in this historically rich nation. Not only does Athens have a plethora of significant ancient Greek archaeological wonders, but the city is also a bustling business hub filled with modern-day attractions such as amusement parks, shopping squares, and of course the Greek food culture. While in Athens, these are some of the places to visit. Acropolis of Athens Hadrian's Library Parthenon Theatre of Dionysus Museum of Islamic Art Syntagma Square Temple of Olympian Zeus Old Temple of Athena Acropolis Museum Mount Lycabettus Piraeus Harbour National Garden Monastiraki Flea Market Omonia Square Central Municipal Athens Market Marina Zeas Allou! Fun Park Athens being a cosmopolitan city of Greece, there are several HALAL food restaurants serving a choice of cuisines.   The Greek Peninsula Mainland Greece, while being home to its capital city of Athens, is divided into the six regions of Thrace, Macedonia, and Epirus to the north, and Thessaly, Central Greece, and the Peloponnesus to the south. So, the Greek Peninsula does have much do and see as well. Delphi Image Credit: Photo by DiChatz on Unsplash A town nestled in the mountains of Central Greece, and home to many archaeologically significant sites of ancient Greece including the Temple of Apollo, the Athenian Treasury, the Castalian Spring and the Delphi theatre and hippodrome. Ioannina Image Credit: Photo by Hippo FromEarth on Unsplash in the region of Epirus is home to the only inhabited lake-island in Greece and offers a chance to stay in the castle or the mini-city of ‘Kastro’ while enjoying the stunning views of mountains and lake. Olympia Image Credit: Photo by James Lee on Unsplash in northwestern Peloponnese is the birthplace of the Olympic Games. An iconic village where the Olympic Flame is lit every two years and visiting the Museum of the History of the Olympic Games in Antiquity is a must. Thessaloniki Image Credit: Photo by Digio Lab on Unsplash is the capital city of the Macedonian region of Northern Greece and considered the second largest city after Athens. Like Athens, this city offers both the wonders of the ancient worlds and the modern attractions of today. Check out the city’s Byzantine walls, White Tower and Turkish baths, museums, art galleries and of course the lively food markets.   Santorini Image Credit: Photo by Heidi Kaden on Unsplash Next on the agenda is what we consider one of the best places to visit in Greece. Santorini, a part of the Cyclades island group, is one of the most visited Greek Isles, and no wonder! With its volcanic history, whitewashed houses clinging to the cliffs and the rugged landscape shaped by the volcanic eruption, this gorgeous island is a treasure of this Mediterranean country. While at Santorini, we plan to swim in the clear blue oceans, take in the intrinsic beauty of the villages and enjoy some fabulous Santorini cuisine. We also plan to take in the two main towns of Fira and Oia, where we can enjoy the unique features of each. Fira is known for its shopping and is also the capital of Santorini, while Oia is considered to be the more luxurious town offering many romantic restaurants and high-end shopping to take home that memorable romantic date. While HALAL food maybe a bit difficult to come by, there are many seafood and vegetarian options to choose from. Here are some of the sites and beaches to check out at this lovely Greek Island. Red Beach Paralia Vlichada Ancient Thera Períssa beach Corfu Image Credit: Photo by Karolis Puidokas on Unsplash Corfu is a popular Greek Island with numerous beaches and oceanside activities. Our plan for this Greek Island revolves around beach hopping, soaking in the true Greek beach culture, and enjoying some watersports. Some of the best beaches on this Greek Island include Porto Timoni beach, Agios Georgios of Pagoi, Ermones, Ampelaki beach, Alipa beach, and Platakia beach. To enjoy fun watersport activities, we plan to visit the beaches of Pelekas, Kontogialos, and Glyfada. Time permitting, we will soak in the atmosphere of Old Town Corfu and also visit Perithia. Unfortunately, Corfu like many of the Greek Isles has no HALAL food. But, no worries, as an island there is plenty of seafood choices and vegetarian dishes to choose from.   Crete As the largest of the Greek islands, a visit to Crete will be filled with changing scenes from the expected turquoise coastlines to rolling countryside and rugged mountain regions. Crete is also a mix of quiet villages and bustling cities. We look forward to enjoying a break to relax and unwind with authentic Greek coffee while taking in the vistas of the turquoise ocean views or olive trees as far as the eye can see. These are some of the cities and places on our “to visit” list for this large Greek island. Heraklion Image Credit: Photo by Evangelos Mpikakis on Unsplash As the capital port city of Crete, Heraklion is a mix of ancient ruins, picturesque old towns, restaurants, lots of places to shop, as well as traffic and a large population. Some of the places to visit are the Heraklion Archaeological Museum, Vrondisi Fountain, Venetian Fortress, Natural History Museum of Crete, Palace of Knossos, and the Karteros beach. Agios Nikolaos Image Credit: Photo by ERROR 420 on Unsplash As one of the more popular tourist destinations of this Greek Isle, Agios Nikolaos has much to offer from a range of beaches, cafes and boutiques to breathtaking views of Mirabello Bay. A trip to this midsized town will surely be filled with lots of beach-type activity and sunscreen. Lake Voulismeni is also on our must-visit list with a day trip to the Cretan Olive Farm not too far away to learn all about olive oil. Balos Lagoon Image Credit: Photo by Krzysztof Kowalik on Unsplash Crete is renowned for some of the best beaches in Greece. While there are many beautiful beaches on this large Greek Island, Balos Lagoon takes the cake. Its pink sand and turquoise waters, it is not to be missed. Nestled between the island of Imeri Gramvousa and Crete itself, Balos Lagoon is located in the region of Chania near the town of Kissamos. Samaria Gorge Image Credit: Photo by Rinke Dohmen on Unsplash Visiting Crete would not be complete without a visit to its Samarai National Park in the White Mountains. The popular Samarai Gorge which starts in Xylóskalo is 16 kilometers in length, and renowned as the longest gorge in Europe and one of the most extraordinary gorges of Greece. This downhill hike concludes at the Agia Roumelli on the black sand beaches off of the Mediterranean sea. At an altitude of 1,230 meters, the Samarai Gorge is home to over 450 species of flora and fauna, of which nearly 70 are endemic to Crete. The 10-mile one-way hike takes you through rugged cliffs, ancient cypress and pine forests showcasing nature at its best. For your return trip, consider hiring a boat to Chora Sfakion, a remote and sparsely populated town where you can enjoy a rest before continuing your Greek holiday or returning home. A first-time visit to Greece must include Athens and some of the closer towns and places in mainland Greece as well as one or two Greek Islands such as Santorini and Corfu. Crete is an adventure all on its own and can be combined with sightseeing in Athens, Greece. So, while we plan this extended Greece holiday visit, take your time, do your research and put together a holiday plan that best suits your time and budget.  Point to note, as HALAL food and MOSQUES are difficult to find in most Geek towns and Isles, plan ahead and do your research, bring a prayer mat and use our Qibla Directions and Halal Restaurants feature on our app and you are all set to enjoy your Greek vacation.  As a bonus check out the Halal Trip article on Tips and Advice for HALAL food in Greece. via GIPHY...

  • 9 Honeymoon Destinations You Have Yet To Discover In Malaysia

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?
