36: Singapore and Kuala Lumpur Travel (2 Kinds of Awesome)

October 25, 2018

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Singapore are both great travel destinations that have their own flavor. While staying in the Bukit Bintang area of Kuala Lumpur, we had the chance to take in Chinatown, several of the massive malls, and check out the Petronas Twin Towers. There are temples to visit, tons of street vendors with spicy food, and street entertainment every night of the week. Singapore is in a class of its own living as a city in the future. It is clean, safe, and luxurious. Beyond the beauty of the downtown area, you can visit the ethnic neighborhoods of Little India, Chinatown, and Arab Street. We give you the advice you need to make the most of your time in both of these beautiful destinations.

It is gorgeous and something you should spend extra time visiting.  We attended ITB Asia which is a large Asia-focused travel convention. Definitely worth our time as we learned a great deal about the travel sector. We found that Singapore has a lot of similarities to Hong Kong: 96 Hour Travel Guide.  The Marina Bay Sands is an epic building with a mall, casino, and fun waterfront area.  Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle is a humble street-food stall and the world’s cheapest Michelin star restaurant.  Singapore is ranked as the Best Country for Expats to Work In.  Be sure to check out World Barber Shop Adventures to find out the differences of barber shops around the world.  Make sure you understand what to pack.
