KL is more international. English is commonly used. KL/Malaysia is also the most democratic country in south east Asia, having had opposition winning the election for the second time (well this time is mixed but the scene is vibrant)

KL is fun, also a melting pot of different cultures locally, as well as an international city. If you want Singapore lifestyle but a more dynamic/vibrant feel, then KL is the choice. Singapore and KL both share same historical background (in fact Singapore was once part of Malaysia just about 50+ years ago). BKK is fun if you travel to their islands, not so much for BKK

Exactly! I’m so tired of us consultants just over analyzing every single detail to get some marginal benefits out of it. Live the life you want OP, you’re gonna be fine no matter what.

KL is a lot like Singapore. Lower COL but a conservative culture.
BKK is a crazy fun city. Huge traffic jams and expensive housing but amazing fun to live in.
