Best Unique Date Ideas In KL

1) Plan A Staycation Away From Your Homes 

For couples that don’t live together, it may be hard to find more quality time. What better way than to plan a staycation and spend the ENTIRE day together, even more than a day! 

It’ll be a unique, new experience since it’ll be a new environment. 

Sekeping Tenggiri

Staying here is something similar to a retreat - it’ll be a great way for the both of you to unwind and break away from the hustle and bustle of the city. One of the perks of staying here is that you’ll get to check out the nearby attractions such as Thean Hou Temple and Little India Brickfields. You both could also dip into the pool during your stay there.
