It’s diverse, livable, affordable and commuter friendly. The reason why Malaysia is one of my favorites among the few foreign countries I visited so far ----Hongkong, Macau, Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia.
I was here on two separate trips.The first was my introduction to Kuala Lumpur and Melaka. The second was with my wife, we stayed in KL too and traveled as far North as Penang.
Let’s talk Kuala Lumpur and Melaka first.
I don't normally avail of roaming service when we travel abroad because we all know how expensive they are. My 2012 trip to Malaysia changed that when I discovered that Globe offers $10/ day promo for unlimited surfing.
Kuala Lumpur is such a visual feast. Add Melaka and all of those food finds. Believe me, you don't want that phone idle!

Also located in the area of Bukit Bintang, this short street is probably the most famous hawker-food street in Kuala Lumpur. It's al fresco dining with a lot of smoke but indeed a festive environment. If you think of Westerners as "sosyal" and prefer fine dining, Jalan Alor will challenge that perception. Here, people come in all colors and sizes as they partake on mostly Chinese Cuisine food offering.
