Hello, newlyweds out there! This article is written especially for you. We bet you have been Googling on where you and your soul mate should go for honeymoon.We’ll be unveiling some “UGLY” truth about Malaysia. Hmm, yes! As Malaysians,we honestly think you should know the TRUTH before planning anything.Here’s why you should never ever plan your honeymoon in Malaysia.
1. Expensive Currency
With the rate of currency now standing at MYR 1 = USD 4.0 (as of this article is posted), Malaysia is definitely not a good place for newlyweds to spend their precious honeymoon moments because it’s incredibly CHEAP! Very cheap in fact. With such low currency compared to Europe and other Mega Asian countries, couples could easily find great deals on accommodations, shopping thrills and honeymoon attractions at fairly reasonable price. So yes, amazing places at a low price. What a bargain?
2. Limited Islands Getaway
There are not many Islands for honeymooners in Malaysia. Thus, it would make a honeymoon trip, MUNDANE. Do you actually believe in this fact? Gotcha! Malaysia is abundant with great Islands. From the West to the East of Malaysia; Langkawi Island, Pangkor Island, Tiga Island/Survivor Island (to name a few); this tropical country is the PERFECT place for lovebirds who seek for a memorable honeymoon escapade which involves beachy paradise.
3. It is a dirty Nation
By dirty, I am referring to the surrounding of course. Seriously, everything around Malaysia is so dirty, it makes you think twice to even search about it on the Internet. *The sound of a foul buzzer!* – you are wrong! Malaysia is a clean country. Did you know that Malaysia is among the cleanest countries in South East of Asia? Don’t worry, I’m a Malaysian and I know my country well. So, if you are worried that you would end up sick after having your honeymoon here in Malaysia due to hygienic reasons, you can throw that thought, far away!
4.The people are NOT friendly at all
Hello, hi, “Selamat Pagi, Selamat Malam”! All sorts of greetings and smiles on the faces of the people in Malaysia. What is not friendly about that? In Malaysia, due to the diversity of cultures living in one nation, the people are used to blend in different surroundings making them more comfortable with other people, thus, this makes it as one of the strongest traits for Malaysians, which is being friendly. Now, if you ever find yourself lost while honeymooning in Malaysia, never be afraid to ask the locals. They are friendly and would be glad to help you out!
5.There is nothing much to do here, BORING!
Yes, you read it right. It’s BORING here. Hmmmmmm, have you and your partner ever tried paragliding before? Or perhaps, try the sea walking adventure? Do you even have an idea what these activities are? Take a look at the pictures below. Yes, this is how boring Malaysia is. Gotcha! You and your partner will, in fact, be amazed on the remarkable activities that can be done by choosing to have your honeymoon in Malaysia. If you are not the type who wants to just relax and make babies (ooppps! ^_^) on your honeymoon trip, instead, you want to explore and be adventurous with your soul mate, then Malaysia is your right pick!
6. Limited choice of food
The only food Malaysian consume are rice, and chicken, and more rice. That’s about it. It is very limited when it comes to foods here. It is already the sixth reason, are you still buying this? I hope not! Guess what, don’t freak out. Malaysia actually possesses one of the most varied options of cuisines in the world. Due to the mixed culture and traditions of the local people, you will be so pleased to enlighten you and your partner’s taste buds. Perhaps, your honeymoon trip would turn out to eating galore trip instead, so beware of a number of scrumptious delicacies Malaysia has to offer!
Well, planning a honeymoon is never easy. There are many things to consider as it would be one of the most memorable events in your life. With all the 6 reasons presented above, we hope you WON’T put Malaysia as your next honeymoon spot! But if ever you think that you should, perhaps Tripfez could assist you on that. Until next time, see ya!
