    I liked the way you have clearly expressed the top destinations for honeymoon in Malaysia,they are very helpful to couples from all the parts of world.Though I am a married man I would like to visit the Villa Samadhi of Kualalampur with my kids ,is it possible or are they meant for honeymoon couples only.
