The better Bangkok
When talking about backpacking in South East Asia, everyone mentions Bangkok; mentions Singapore which is good but to expensive, and so on. But hardly have I heard any comments on KL. Well, now that I've been there: I love it. It is modern and western, but the prices are still low and it is way better structured than crazy Bangkok.
Insider Tip:Petronas towers cost RM 80 to go up there and you have to queue. Better go to a bar in another skyscraper around to enjoy the view including Petronas :)
