With its long-standing reputation as a magical destination for couples, there’s lots to love about Malaysia. One of South-East Asia’s most established honeymoon destinations, Malaysia is the perfect place to wind down after a wedding.
For newlyweds, Malaysia ticks all the ‘dream honeymoon’ boxes: you’ll find some of the continent’s finest stretches of sand, and the choice of hotels and resorts is exceptional. There’s enough to keep the more adventurous bride and groom entertained, from pristine rainforests and tea plantations to its cool capital city, Kuala Lumpur. And, of course, there’s the food - a mouth-watering fusion of Asian cuisines.
Peninsular Malaysia also combines well with the Malay states of Sabah and Sarawak on the islands of Borneo. Spend as little as 1hr 45 mins in the air, and you can be exploring rainforests, enjoying the legendary Iban hospitality, trekking through millenia old rainforests and spotting primates such as gibbons and the enigmatic orang-utan.
