We’ve been to Malaysia three times – to Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor Bahru. On our initial visit we stayed in the border city of Johor Bahru, Malaysia as an alternative to staying in expensive Singapore. The chaotic process of crossing the border from one country to the other was both bewildering and humorous. We did spend a couple of days checking out Johor Bahru and while there aren’t many significant sights, it certainly gave us insight to local life. Our first stop in Kuala Lumpur was a short 36-hour stay a few months later – which was just enough time to see the highlights but we've since returned for a full immersion over the course of 10 days. When then followed up with a stay in Georgetown, Penang...where we ate loads of amazing food and gawked at the impressive street art.
