Before you start deciding between taking a tour of Europe or going on a beach holiday to Bora Bora, why not consider having your honeymoon in Malaysia?
Being a tropical country, Malaysia offers perfect weather all year round, although there is the occasional rain every now and then. Any travel review site about Malaysia will tell you that this country is a wonderful place to visit, especially if you want to shop till you drop, have a relaxing holiday by the beach or at a resort, go on a culinary adventure of some of the most delicious food ever eaten, explore rainforest, caves and all that nature has to offer, experience a mixture of three unique cultures in one country, and many, many more.
The bottom line is, you can’t go wrong with a honeymoon in Malaysia. Here are six honeymoon destinations in Malaysia, together with the best hotels, resorts and rates. P/S: Rates may differ based on peak and non-peak seasons.
1. Redang Island, Terengganu – Island and Beach Style Honeymoon
A honeymoon on a beach is paradise, and the beach on Redang is divine! Soft white sand, jungles surrounding the island, corals and fishes visible through the crystal clear turquoise water (angel fish, the parrot fish, tuna, turtles, barracudas); Redang Island is definitely a good choice as a honeymoon destination in Malaysia!
The island is one of the largest islands off the east coast of Malaysia and is big on conserving marine life especially sea turtles. In fact, to protect the marine life, jet and water skies are not allowed. Also, a honeymoon on the beach doesn’t mean just lying around soaking up the rays. There are a bunch of activities to partake in with your spouse.
Things to do on Redang Island:
• Snorkelling and discover interesting sights through the crystal clear water
• Play volleyball on the beach
• Island hopping (there are about nine islands in the archipelago)
• Wind surfing
• Hiking through the jungle
• Kayaking on the shoreline
• Take a romantic stroll on the beach while enjoying the beautiful sunset
