12 Most Important Traits of Malaysian Women Rated 1-10 (+ Overall Score)

Men tend to say that all women are the same but that’s not true at all and it all depends on the cultural background of a person.

That’s why I’m going to start this guide by talking about some unique physical and personality traits that distinguish Malaysian women from other women.

What Physical Traits Distinguish Malaysian Women from Other Women

1. Physical Appearance

Malaysian women are unique when it comes to their physical appearance mainly because Malaysia is a multicultural country.

For example, Bumiputras, the local inhabitants, make about 69% of the population and Chinese Malaysians make up about 23%.

There are also Thais, Khmers, Chams and so on.

Each ethnic group has some unique feature and when you add multiracial marriages in the mix, it’s really hard to pinpoint exactly every feature of Malaysian females.

However, some common features most Malaysian women share are, for example, the Malaysian women body type which can be described as well-rounded and most of them have an hour-glass shaped body.

Don’t get me wrong, they are all quite beautiful but it all depends what you’re looking for.

2. Health

Malaysian women are like fine wine, they just get better with age.

I was surprised when some of the Malaysian women I dated told me that they are in their 40’s but look like they’re in their early 20’s.

Also, it seems like they have the perfect skin which feels silky and smooth making you want to get some Malaysian girls in bed right away just so you can cuddle with them.

One thing I need to add is that most Malaysians don’t smoke and especially women making them not only healthier than some other women (I’m looking at you Andorra), but also you won’t have to deal with ashtray breath.

3. How Stylish Are They?

When it comes to style typical Malaysian girls are quite versatile mainly because the weather there is both warm and humid with a lot of rain in the autumn and winter months.

Also, because a big majority of Malaysians are Muslim and Islam is the state religion, you can expect to see a lot of hijabs while roaming through the busy streets.

Muslim women also typically wear long dresses, while other Malaysian women tend to stick with the latest fashion trends or wear their traditional clothing depending on the region.

4. Facial Beauty

As I already mentioned, Malaysia is a multiethnic state so there is a lot of diversity when it comes to facial beauty.

To me, most Malaysian women look Arabic because of their darker complexion but have eyes resembling that of Eastern-Asian people.

One thing that I’ve noticed is that most women have dark hair and I’ve spotted even some brunettes but rarely blondes.

The thing that is attractive the most to me about Malaysian women is their clear skin and it looks like no one had acne like me in high-school.

Overall, Malaysian women are quite beautiful no matter what their ethnic background is.

Additional Rating – The Tinder 1000 Swipe Rating

On top of the four physical trait ratings for Malaysian women, we have also created our own additional rating from the Malaysian girls we see on Tinder.  We call it the 1,000 Tinder swipe rating. It is extremely accurate and gives a very good overall picture of the single women and how attractive they are.

This is how it works. 

We swiped through 1000 different profiles in all of the major cities of Malaysia and took note of how many beautiful women there are. We jotted down how many 8’s, 9’s and 10’s there are based on their profile pictures. Here is a quick breakdown. 

  • 0-100 is poor
  • 100-200 is OK
  • 200-300 is Good
  • 300 – 400 Is Incredible 
  • 400 + is Mindblowing (There are only a few of these)

With a Tinder Plus subscription, you can teleport to anywhere in the world and swipe for yourself. Find out more below In the section about how to meet Malaysian women. Also, make sure to check out my other country guides to see how their Tinder scores compare.


What Different Personality Traits Malaysian Women Have from Other Women

1. Do They like Going out and Having Fun?

To be honest, it all depends on the region.

Some parts of Malaysia are quite traditional and women rarely come outside to party while in big cities such as Kuala Lumpur you can spot groups of women in every bar and club you enter so these cities are your safest bet if you want to meet a Malaysian woman.

Generally speaking, women of Malaysia are quite outgoing and they like to party all night so if that’s something you’re into then you’ll have a blast partying with them.

How fun are Malaysian women?

2. Chill Factor

I have to say that for me dating girls of Malaysian is quite a breeze once you get to know them.

They are quite low-maintenance and rarely will pick a fight with you if you treat them right.

I’ve never experienced a Malaysian woman nagging me about something or wanting something from me other than attention.

For some people, these kinds of relationships might feel bland and monotonous but if you want someone who is fiery and will surely bring the heat in your relationship then I suggest you date Latino women instead.

what is the chill factor of Malaysian women?

3. Loyalty

Because most girls in Malaysia are more on the traditional side, they cherish family values and tend to be with just one partner.

You’ll rarely see a Malaysian girl changing partners like it’s nothing which is a good thing on one hand but it also rules out a one-night-stand if you were hoping to achieve that.

In my experience, Malaysian women will try to maintain the relationship as long as they can and will love you even more over time when they see that the relationship is serious.

Also, adultery is a major sin in Islam so there’s that.

Malaysian women are quite loyal

4. Good as Mothers

Malaysian women make great mothers and because Malaysia has a high birth rate you can already tell that Malaysian women want many children.

Because of this and the fact that traditional values are still very much alive in Malaysia, being a good mother is a sign of success and to be honest, I wouldn’t mind a Malaysian woman being the mother of my child.

Malaysian women are good mothers indeed

5. Meeting and Talking to New People

Surprisingly, Malaysian women aren’t shy at all and like to talk to anyone who strikes up a conversation.

This is generally the deal in larger cities where there are a lot of tourists so Malaysian women are used to foreigners flirting with them.

However, don’t make the mistake of flirting with Muslim women right off the bat because they won’t appreciate it but rather try to engage them in a friendly manner and see how things go.

I’m telling you this because it’s hard for us Westerners to understand the religious differences of other countries and no one wants to be marked as a “loud American” by being disrespectful so be on your guard.

Are Malaysian women  friendly are reserved?

6. Are they Romantic?

One of my tips for dating a Malaysian woman is to always try to be as romantic as possible because they go crazy for guys who know how to make a woman feel like a princess.

Most Malaysian women like to do lots of romantic stuff like going for long walks on the beach in the evening, having deep conversations and cuddling with their partner.

They are quite delicate and girly so you must pay attention to how you treat them otherwise they might get hurt.

And if you were to ask me – what are Malaysian women like? I would answer you with two words – extremely romantic.

If you like a bit more “rougher” women go to Russia.

Are Malaysian women romantic?

7. Sexuality

If you’re thinking about going to Malaysia to have casual sex then I have to disappoint you because a one-night-stand is almost unheard of in Malaysia.

You either have a relationship with a girl and then you have sex or you just end up being in the friend-zone.

Also, Muslims believe that there should be sexual purity before marriage and this especially is applied to women.

However, some Malaysian women I did up in bed with were out of this world but they weren’t Muslim so I can’t answer the question of what are Malaysian women like in bed.

How sexual are Malaysian women?

8. Gringo Card – How Likely Are They to Date Foreigners?

I have to break it to you if you’re an American man looking for Malaysian women you’ll have to try extra hard to succeed in dating a Malaysian woman.

This is due to the majority of Malaysian women being Muslim and it was once frowned upon to see a Muslim woman dating a non-Muslim.

However, because the religious and traditional boundaries have loosened-up in the past 40 years, there’s no problem in you dating a Muslim girl but you still have to be patient and respect their religion.

I managed to pull it off because when I visited other Muslim countries I knew what I could and couldn’t do and thinking about getting Malaysian women in bed on the first date was the first thing I avoided.

They need to get to know you first before they decide if you’re the right one for them.

Gringo card of Malaysian women.

Malaysia is a country that is gaining economic traction recently but this has not affected the way the Islamic religion is practiced. Malaysian women do not joke with their religion and it is paramount for you to know this.

They are not all about religion anyway, they also have the fun side that you will enjoy.

Where to Meet a Malaysian Woman

Okay, now that I’ve answered the question of what are typical Malaysian women like and I hope that I’ve cleared up some Malaysian girl stereotypes I now want to talk a bit about where to meet these lovely ladies.

First I will talk about the best Malaysian dating site and then I’ll make an in-depth traveler’s guide which you will find useful once you visit Malaysia.

So, without further ado, let’s begin!

If you want to find single Malaysian women, then look no further because is all you need.

The singing-up process for this site is fairly easy and it only takes about 2 minutes to register and even less if you log in using your Facebook account.

To locate a potential match you simply fill the categories given such as gender, age, location, religion and so on.

Once you do that, you’ll be presented with a list of users and you can start chatting with them.

I have to mention that although the site is free, you should opt to upgrade your account to a premium membership as you’ll get more features and communication options.

Also, because this site is a premium one compared to other similar sites you can expect no fake profiles because the site has a strict policy when it comes to frauds.

When I first started using this site I was surprised how easy it was to find single Malaysian girls that were eager to talk to me.

And the best thing was that almost all of them know English as this site covers most of Asia and English is the most common language that members speak so you don’t have to worry about language barriers.

Traveler’s Guide for Meeting Malaysian Women

Maybe online dating isn’t your thing and you don’t want to spend time talking to hot Malaysian girls you won’t have a chance to meet any time soon or you’re just like me and want to venture off into the unknown and see if you have any luck.

Either way, this traveler’s guide is here to help you decide which places are your cup of tea and will be on top of your list once you decide to visit Malaysia.

1. Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is the largest city in Malaysia and is also the capital. The city is fairly large and has about 1.7 million inhabitants but with over 8.9 million visitors each year it is the sixth most visited city in the world.

The city is quite modern-looking and it feels like you’re walking through a city from the future.

Some places that were quite breath-taking for me and I suggest you visit as well include The Kuala Lumpur Tower, The National Planetarium and Petaling Street.

Now let’s talk about the places you’re here for – nightclubs and bars:

  • Zion Club
  • Beach Club Café
  • Groove The Disco
  • Goa Club
  • Heaven Pub & Bistro

2. George Town

Not to be confused with at least a dozen cities with the same name, this George Town is located on Penang Island and is the capital of that state.

Similar to Kuala Lumpur, this city is a popular tourist destination (about 7 million tourists visit the city each year) and has a lot of modern architecture which surely attracts a lot of visitors.

If you’re into old architecture I suggest you visit The City Hall, The St. George’s Church, The Kapitan Keling Mosque, and The Building of The High Court.

On the other side, if you’re into more modern architecture some of my favorite places include The KOMTAR Tower and The Gurney Drive which is situated right by the coast.

Of course, you can’t go around all day looking at architecture when there are so many beautiful Malaysian girls hanging around in clubs such as:

  • The Beach Bar
  • Hong Kong Bar
  • SOHO
  • Pink 2
  • Out of Nowhere

3. Malacca City

Malacca is a bit different than the abovementioned cities mainly because it has a lot of Chinese influence which can be seen not only in the architecture but also the locals.

It’s a smaller city than George Town and only has about 500.000 residents but the city is attractive to tourists because it’s quite peaceful and feels like you’re at a resort.

It’s quite warm as well but it also rains a lot there so if you’re not prepared for that then this city isn’t for you.

There are tons of historical sites you can visit as this part of Malaysia was under the control of multiple colonial forces but I’ll let you explore the city yourself so you get a better first impression.

The clubs, however, I need to mention as I had a blast in Malacca and it’s one of my favorite cities in Malaysia and I’ll share with you my favorite places:

  • Cube Club
  • Catwalk Music Club
  • Malacca
  • Alto Sky Lounge
  • Rhapsody Bar
  • Celsius
  • Exodus Lounge

Pros and Cons of Dating a Malaysian Woman

Now that you have an idea of where to meet Malaysian girls, let’s go ahead and see what are the pros and cons of dating a Malaysian girl so you know what to expect in a relationship.


1. Malaysian Women are Hardworking

For me, an important trait for any person to have and not only women is being a hard worker not only because it provides financial stability but it also shows maturity.

It’s also important to have a wife who doesn’t want to spend her time at home but wants to have a stable job and provides for her family.

Because of this many Malaysian women are quite successful and love what their jobs and for me fit the role of perfect wife material.

2. Malaysian Women are Great Cooks

Apart from their career, Malaysian women are also keen on making sure that everything is alright at home and this also involves cooking.

And let me tell you, Malaysian cuisine is quite good and especially when it is cooked homemade.

Maybe even one of the best things about having a Malaysian girlfriend is that she’ll want to cook for you every day and there’s a high chance that she’s great at it.

3. Language Barrier is not a Problem

I’m getting tired of repeating that Malaysia is a multiethnic country but I want you to have a broader perspective on the Malay culture.

So because not all people speak the same language, English is the second most common language and you won’t have a problem talking to most Malaysian women.

Don’t even bother trying to learn Malaysian because it’s harder than Chinese in my opinion so just stick with English and you’ll be able to score a few dates.

4. They are down-to-earth

In modern times modesty is a rare trait that is often marginalized as being misery and people have accepted this as a fact mostly in the Western hemisphere.

On the contrary, in Malaysia women are quite modest and down-to-earth which to me is an important trait because no one wants to be in a relationship with an ego-maniac.

You will notice when you meet Malaysian girls that they don’t like to talk about money, politics, religion, and any topic that can get someone offended but rather they like to talk about traveling, family and some topics that can help them get to know people better.


1. Their Religious Views Might Interfere With Your Relationship

You can tell that I’ve mentioned religion multiple times throughout this guide and the reason is that I don’t want you to fall in love with a Malaysian girl and then end up getting disappointed when she turns you down.

To be safe from not being rejected try to avoid starting anything serious with Muslim women because you can get in a lot of trouble.

But generally speaking, religion might be the only con of dating a Malaysian girl.

How to Make a Malaysian Woman Fall in Love with You

I hope that by now you know the answer to the question of what are Malaysian girls like in relationships but this guide wouldn’t be complete without me sharing with you some of my Malaysian women dating tips.

If you think that sexy Malaysian women are something you’re into, then you should consider following these tips.

1. Confidence is Key

In all of my guides, I always list this as a top priority to dating any women and I may be boring my readers but without confidence, your chances of getting any girl to like you are quite low.

This is especially true for hot Malaysian women who aren’t a bit shy and like to talk to people who aren’t afraid of striking up a conversation.

I know that International dating can seem frightening for most people and I wasn’t as confident as I am now when I first started my travels but after a while when I met so many women and saw how easy it was to go up and talk to them, my confidence went up the roof.

2. Respect Her Religion

Religion is a big deal in Malaysia and most people are believers and when you add the high percentage of Muslims in the mix, dating a Malaysian woman can seem intimidating.

So no matter if you’re religious or not, you have to respect other religions and if a Malaysian girl doesn’t want to be in a relationship with you because of her religious views you have to back away.

Also, do know that if you end up in a relationship with a Malaysian woman that her family might not approve it and it will be hard for both of you and those are some things you have to be ready to face and deal with.

3. Try to Be Romantic

One of my best Malaysian girl dating tips is being romantic because, as I already said, they love it when their partner is a true gentleman and gives them attention and affection.

Some women who are gentle and girly like Malaysian women want the opposite. They like people who are rough around the edges, but Malaysian women like a true lover.

So if you get lucky and start dating a Malaysian girl, try to be as romantic as possible and she’ll fall in love head over heels for you.

4. Don’t Expect Anything on the First Date

Once you get a date with a Malaysian woman it means that she’s interested in you but don’t try to get a kiss from her or take her to bed the first time you two have dinner.

Instead, you should try to find out things about her and see how the conversation is going.

Of course, if the mood is set and you feel like you have the chance, you can go for a kiss but don’t try to force anything.

5. Make Her Laugh

“If you can make a woman laugh, you can make her do anything” – Marilyn Monroe

And this is quite true for Malaysian women as well because they love to laugh a lot and they are also great comedians as well.

Of course, American humor and Malaysian humor are two different worlds so you don’t want to start off being funny by making blue comedy jokes.

Keep it light and amusing and learn a joke that anyone can understand so that later if you see that your Malaysian date is comfortable with all types of humor you can let loose a few dark jokes to see how she reacts.

We Westerners sure love dark comedy.

6. Get to Know the Culture

Venturing off into the world of international dating isn’t just about exploring the Malaysian dating culture but also about the country’s tradition and customs as well as visiting a few museums.

If you want to go to Malaysia just so you can get a few chicks into bed, be my guest, but you might want to learn a thing or two about the culture.

And trust me, Malaysian girls go wild when they see that you know some things about Malaysia because you show them that you respect their country and are eager to try new things.

So before you go to Malaysia to date pretty Malaysian girls at least go to Wikipedia and learn a few things.

The Most Beautiful Malaysian Women

Now that you know how to meet a Malaysian girl, I want to finish off this guide by talking about some of the hottest Malaysian women who put Malaysia on the map for their talent.

All of these women are quite beautiful but also very famous not only in Malaysia but also in other parts of the world.

Let’s begin!

1. Yuna

Her name is hard to pronounce without butchering it so I will stick with just Yuna.

Anyways, Yuna was born in 1986 in Kedah and when she was just 14-years-old she learned how to play the guitar and started writing her songs.

Five years later, when she was 19, she started performing all around Malaysia in several acoustic events.

She entered the International music scene when she released a single called Live Your Life produced by Pharrell Williams and the song hit the 23rd spot on the Billboard’s Heat-Seekers Chart.

Since then Yuna has released 4 studio albums which all received positive feedback from her fans across the globe.

Apart from influencing the Malaysian music scene, she is also praised by her fans for paving the way for female Muslim artists and she is viewed as a brave social justice warrior for refusing to take off her hijab and is an inspiration for other Muslim artists who struggle with discrimination because of their religion.

All in all, Yuna is one unique and beautiful Malaysian woman who certainly makes her home country proud.

2. Kiki Poh

Another famous and also gorgeous Malaysian woman is Kiki Poh.

She was not known to the world public until 2010 when she started working for Pixar and was the shading artist for the movie Toy Story 3 making her the first Malaysian woman to work for the company.

Since then, she worked in the production of several Pixar movies and is still going strong.

What’s so special about Kiki is her lovable personality when she gives interviews and she says that it’s a great honor for her to be representing her country in the animated movie industry.

She must be doing a great job since all of Pixar’s movies earn hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue and who knows how much she has in her bank account.

Anyways, we expect Kiki to continue to work for Pixar but she also mentioned that she might be working for other companies as well in the future.

3. Ling Tan

Ling Tan

Ling Tan is a famous Malaysian fashion model of Chinese descent and because of her unique look, she managed to be the first runner up in the Asian Model Search when she was 20 years old back in 1994.

Her real big break was when she started modeling at a small fashion show and was noticed by some European and American designers who saw some potential.

Since then Ling Tan has been in several hundred fashion shows in London, Milan, New York, and Paris and has worked with designers such as Emporio Armani, Donna Karan, Chanel, Givenchy, and Yves Saint Laurent.

She’s also been on the cover of many fashion magazines such as Vogue and Prestige Magazines and was even featured along-side Jimmy Choo.

This 45-years-old fashion model still has a youthful look and we expect her to rock even more runways in the future.
