After Singapore it was time to move on to Malaysia. We spent about two weeks exploring the country with our first city being the capital of Kuala Lumpur. KL is a bustling modern metropolis that we both instantly liked. It has the same bright light feel as Singapore, but with a little more of the wild west craziness that most people associate with Southeast Asia.
