    Good and friendly

    We stayed there for 3 days 2 nights. The staffs are very friendly. The place is very clean and equipped with good travellers. There is a large long table for eating, using laptop, etc. It makes the whole place very homely and very cozy. My friend and I like the place very much! (: Lastly, we would like to thank the staffs who found and kept my iPod Touch for me. I left it there on my checkout day. I had a panick attack (lol) but thankfully the staffs kept it for me. Highly recommend

    KL: Stay here while you wait for a flight and do some shopping

    I was mildly impressed with KL. It's super developed and has a nice feel, with loads of greenery. Everyone whinges about how there's bugger all in terms of sight seeing, and this is totally true, but I prefer enjoying the atmosphere of a place, and KL has nice atmosphere. It's also got great shopping everywhere, is cheap, clean and really easy to get around. Def worth an overnight stopover for some last minute shopping before you head home.

    Insider Tip:Go shopping and haggle hard, but friendly.

    Truly Asia

    Malaysia surprised me. The culture, traditions, history, the city buildings, monuments, beaches etc..were truly fantastic.. But most of all the nature of the people was the one which stood out. People are just kind and helpful. You always see a smile thrown at you.

    Insider Tip:The weather surprises you too.. Carry an umbrella... Since this is a tropical region, you will be greeted by rain.

    Kuala Lumpur

    Kuala Lumpur is a pretty cool place. The Petronas Towers are really breathtaking, worthy of being called a Modern Wonder of the World. The culture is insanely different from the rest of SE Asia but really cool in its own right. The food and market shopping are fantastic!

    Insider Tip:Bars are super expensive, not just for Asia but prices are right up there with Chicago, New York, Paris, and London. It is best to get your buzz going before you go out if that is your thing!
