    Fair points about KL, a fun city with lots to see and keep you amused. The only negative I can remember from working and living there over a number of years was the crime situation. Burglaries and muggings were common often in broad daylight. Walking around half pissed at night was not a good idea. Of course the Malays blamed everything on Indonesians, kind of like Thailand in that regard.

      I've witnessed no crime here in five months and if it was my priority I'd stick with sterile Singapore. Here is definitely grittier than there though, which can be a good or bad thing.

      It still beats Bangkok for safety though https://www.bangkokpost.com/life/soc...ity-tokyo-tops

          Why the comparatives, generally speaking.

          Comparisons have little to do with anything and usually used by those with little knowledge - as they have nothing else.

          Absolute paradigm.

            Which one has breathable air? None as far as I'm aware.

              Kunming did, last I knew. Actually it is my favorite part of China.

                Yep.
                Actually all of the south central provinces have their moments.

                    Well on first impressions I have a new favourite city. Malacca. Feels like a hybrid of Singapore and Hoi An.

                      Consider the source.

                        I presume you're referring to the source of yet another vapid comment.


                        Another great thing about Malaysia is that clocks are an hour ahead of Thailand. So it gets light after 7am and dark after 7pm which might seem trivial but it feels more comfortable.

                        It no doubt harks back to British Malaya and Brits not liking waking up before 7am, and enjoying daylight hours after work.

                        Just had a TD browse and saw Thaiophiles painting KL as a joyless place. They'll never see in a Bangkok mall what we watched in The Curve (a Mediterranean styled KL mall) last night, a great band doing stuff from Elvis to brand new and dozens of local shoppers (Chinese, Malay, Indian, Eurasian) stopping to dance and learn steps in harmony, including pensioners and kids.

                          The Curve, Petaling Jaya, KL. With a linkway to the MRT.

                          This is the area we're gonna house hunt in should we choose KL over Malacca, Georgetown or Kuching.










                          Ara Hill is looking like a likely contender

                            Have to admit I do like the weather there in Malaysia.
                            God, the panic within the Dems, MSM, and left must be horrifying...realizing that Joe is really the best they've got.

                              It's essential for rainforests.

                              If the city gets hot, head up into the mountains.
