Bucket list activities for all couples in Malaysia – The recipe for a romantic and adventurous vacation!

Malaysia is a gem in the Asia region. Tropical rainforests, sun-kissed beaches, shopping galore, the modern architecture makes this an amazing travel destination for couples who enjoy globe-trotting.


Explore the marine life of Perhentian Islands

Ocean lovers need to put Perhentian Islands on the top of their travel itinerary to Malaysia. There are two islands here, the Perhentian Kecil that is the smaller one of the two and the Perhentian Besar. Boasting fabulous beaches, turquoise blue waters, and tall palm trees, it is the ideal place for a seaside holiday for lovebirds. Couples can have fun snorkelling, swimming, and diving during the daytime. Resorts on the island have all night parties for couples where they can enjoy a fun night out.


Go caving in KL

For couples with a knack for adventure, the Batu Caves are a must visit. There is a limestone hill with three large caves and a few smaller ones. A short drive from the KL city will take you to the historic 100-year-old Hindu temple. The interior of the cave consists of a 400-year-old limestone formation and it is one of the most revered religious landmarks by Hindus around the world. The largest cave of the cavern formation is called the Cathedral Cave and it houses various Hindu shrines below the hundred meters high ceiling. At the foot of the Batu Hill, you get two cave temples, which has numerous other sculptures of Hindu deities


Trek at Cameron Highlands

If you and your partner enjoy outdoorsy things then a trek in Cameron Highlands should be on your list. The Cameron Highlands of Malaysia is an extensive hillside station named after British surveyor William Cameron who is said to have found the area in 1885. The soft, curvy hillside hosts the biggest tea plantations in the country. The cool and calm climate here with plenty of lush scenery and trekking trails attracts plenty of tourists each year.


Sepang International Circuit

Built for speed and adventure the Sepang International Circuit is one of the best racing tracks in the world. The complex occupies accommodation, shopping, golf, go-karting, a tour of the circuit as well as other exciting facilities. Couples can unwind at a Sepang hotel which is located closeby after a busy day at the circuit such as the likes of AVANI Sepang Goldcoast Resort.


Go sightseeing at 'A Famosa'

Couples who enjoy exploring the historic sites will love A Famosa - an ancient fortress found in Malacca a state in Malaysia. 'A Famosa' translates to 'The Famous' in Portuguese. The fortress was built during the Portuguese reign in the early 1500s and continued to expand over the course of that century. Although today what is left is only the entrance gatehouse, it still stands as a symbol of the city's past. In later times the Dutch and the British took possession of the city including A Famosa. The Malacca city also has some other interesting sights such as the Stadthuys and Jonker Stree, which is popular for its historical sites.


Spend time at the Sepilok rehabilitation centre

Couples that love animals need to visit the Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre. Opened in 1964 to reintegrate the lives of orphaned baby orangutans. Most of the animals in the centre were rescued from logging sites, plantations and illegal hunting. These orangutans are trained to survive in the wild and released back to their homes once they are ready. There are nearly eighty animals living free within the reserve and the centre attracts a high number of visitors throughout the year.
