With that being said, amidst Malaysia’s spectacular views, cultures, and interests, we’ve compiled a list of our top seven sites in Malaysia that will have you saying (or screaming), YES!
1. Glamz, Pahang
Picture this—laying in the arms of your loved ones after they’ve popped the big question while stargazing under the bright moonlight, discussing what’s next? Glamz at Genting Highlands is a lodging experience like no other, and it’s set in the cool mountains.
It provides a laid-back glamping atmosphere for lovers wishing to flee the buzz and bustle of the city, covered in cool mist every dark evening and morning. Nothing screams romance more than this.

The Blue Mansion in bustling George Town, Penang is not only famous as a backdrop served in a scene of Crazy Rich Asians, but also for its UNESCO World Heritage status. And rightfully so. The architecture of this boutique hotel transports one back to the 19th century.
A marriage between myths of the Chinese Kingdom and the glory of the British Empire resulted in a diverse monument rich in history and oozing with culture. A proposal here will be one to remember for a lifetime and a memorable way to begin your brand new chapter.
