Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam dominate itineraries for South East Asia. Malaysia often gets left off. The last time we were in SE Asia, we didn't even consider it, but when we were looking for a place to settle in for a week Kuala Lumpur was on the top of our list. This week is a recap of our time in Malaysia. In October we spent just over two weeks in Kuala Lumpur (KL), the Cameron Highlands, and Ipoh. We spent 10 days in KL to catch up on life, and then took a short trip to the Cameron Highlands and Ipoh, before returning and heading to Macau. Find out our favorite things in KL, if the Cameron Highlands are worth visiting, and the other top spots in Malaysia that we missed.
