Malaysia is a tropical paradise - home to its majestic beaches, famous tropical rainforests, rich cultural heritage, and impressive scenery. Such landmarks include the Langkawi Island, Sarawak Cultural Village, Batu Caves, Mount Kinabalu, and the tallest twin towers in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers.
Malaysia is also known to be a conservative country. It is a secular country with a predominantly Muslim population, however, Malaysia is truly a melting pot that attracts different cultures from all over the world.
Public display of affection (PDA) is a huge no-no. It is rare to observe couples being too comfortable with each other inside the premises of Malaysia. Aside from holding hands, other kinds of public display of affection (PDA) are frowned upon in the country. Pecks on the cheeks even result to discrete stares from Malaysians.
Because of the country’s conservativeness, single women look for other avenues to meet men. With a thriving and exciting nightlife in Malaysia, ladies use these venues to show their wild sides and meet new friends. Kualu Lumpur in particular is home to numerous nightclubs, bars and other nightlife venues where you can have ample opportunities to mix things up with locals.
Malaysians are known to be homebodies. Unlike Westerners, Malaysians are used to having short dates outsides of their houses. A date usually consists of a dinner in a nice restaurant and shortly returning home to the family afterwards. Some even opt to continue their dates with the presence of their family members. For them, their parent’s opinions matter in their decision-making and family as at the center of the culture.
There is a significant possibility that when a guy asks a Malaysian girl for a date, she will tag her family or friends along with her. Only after seeking the approval of the family would you be allowed to take her to a private date.
Dating in Malaysia is quite different from its other Southeast Asian counterparts. However, if you are the type of person that goes for the ‘girl-next-door’ kind of partner, Malaysia is the perfect place for you.
