I found the transportation in Malaysia to be difficult. In the sense you needed to take more than one method of transport to get to an attraction. Also the prices were too high for an asian country and the value did not match the price. So a dorm room with a fan was about 10 dollars but should be 5. I found the food to be unappealing but this is just my opinion it was always sold cold and when ordering it is buffet style and you just pick an item with them telling you the price later.
Insider Tip:If you do go make sure to keep your trip short I messed up and did a 30 day trip but left after 11 days. Everything can be seen in a day or too. Also it is muslim country so parties and drinking is not going to be a hot topic there.
