Neighbors, same climate, big cities, beautiful beaches, mountains – there are many things Thailand and Malaysia have in common. If you got the time to visit both, I recommend visiting both as they are still very different and fabulous in their way. However, if you only got time to visit one of them you can find out here which one suits you better.
Bangkok or Kuala Lumpur? Which is the better city to visit? What can you do in both cities, and what do they have in common? And why do I even compare these two cities?
Georgetown in Malaysia is not only the food capital of Malaysia but also filled with Street art and the old town is recognized as an UNESCO World Heritage. Need any more reasons to visit? What about the fact that there are even beaches, beautiful temples and a hill where you can hike up or take the train to have an impressive view?
Singapore – the small city-state at the edge of Southeast Asia – a mega metropole, super modern with one of the best transportation systems, fantastic food choices and the cleanest city so far. This city has everything you need and endless attractions for tourists. Unfortunately, all of that comes for a price, but it’s worth to spend the extra money and visit this city which shows the world how the future will look like.
Bangkok is truly a food lover Paradise – fantastic food wherever you look, Thai Food and international Food – the choices are endless. But where can you find the best Food? Which places offer a wide variety and where is it cheap? Here is a guide for your best food experience in Bangkok.
I stayed for 30 days in Bangkok, and I ended up in a Food coma every single day. I couldn’t withstand the food, and there is so much to try so many options, and for such cheap prices, you must overeat. It isn’t only the Thai food, which is fantastic, there is a massive presence of international cuisine, but especially from Asia, which is unbeatable.
Bangkok – the mega metropole in the middle of Southeast Asia, home for 15 million people and home for some of the best food in the world. In between Street food, rooftop Bars and markets, majestic temples decorate the city. One skyscraper tops the other, and you can find as cheap or as expensive places as you want. This city has absolutely everything, and there is nothing you can’t find.
Last but not least, I got my Hostel recommendation for you. In the previous 30 days, I showed you all around Bangkok, from markets over rooftop bars, temples, and activities everything is included. But after all this action and excitement, you need a place to relax and come down. If you’re a Backpacker and on a budget like me then I highly recommend the Hostel called Back home Backpackers in the old town near to Khaosan Road.
There is an underground system in Bangkok? I didn’t know that something like that exists in Asia – That’s what my best friend told me when I texted him that I would take the underground to get to a night market. Yes – there is an underground system and even a Skytrain running through Bangkok, and they are often the best way to get around as they aren’t stuck in traffic.
The neon market has two dozen of restaurant where you can eat and sit, else than the other markets where you only have little shops who sell the food and you eat it while walking. All of the restaurants serve kind of the same food with little difference, so it’s more about where you feel comfortable and want to sit. The food choice is vast with fresh grilled fish, traditional Thai dishes, and all kinds of seafood. Prices are a little higher than on other markets, but therefor you can sit down.
