It's a very nice conservative Muslim country, you would probably really feel at home.

So kindly, friendly people. I traveled there before all these mosques were built. At least I don't remember seeing any in this - looks like Brunei style?! -

I had a copy of a speech made by the Malaysian Prime Minister in which he boldly speaks against Zionists, etc. I was impressed.

Maybe the climate there is more conducive to freedom of expression? I don't know.

But the countryside is absolutely lovely.

Food is great too, as I recall!

What would you do there? Or just go to live for awhile to see another culture?

i am hoping to move their with my family to live until things are better in Afghanistan, its a choice between the UK or Malaysia, Malaysia at the moment seems to be the winner with its beautiful people and great culture

Amazing images. The photographer deserves a lot of credit - it must have been a lot of work.
I had to come back and look again a few times!

Abubaker, you saw I'm sure the video posted last month by SK about the Kelantan govt's attempt to return to the Gold standard with the dinar, and the silver dirham?
It was really a great video.

In that you get a glimpse of the sweetness of the Malay Muslims.

The culture of Malaysia is enhanced by the three ethnic groups which live there. There are Chinese who came to work I think in the plantations and Indians.
So there's a real cross-section of Asia present there. Thus a lot of spark and cultural interest.

People get along pretty well, considering the tensions that can be.

Are you studying your Bahasa Malaysia - ?

I'd go there in a minute rather than troubled UK.
Malaysia is so much more relaxed and friendly of a place. Economically, they are reasonably strong. Despite propaganda that they are struggling - just my guess. I think they are sounder than usually given out to be by Western sources.

A good and SAFE bet for your family, in my opinion. Let us know when you decide.

Feroza Banu, Singapore is kind of boring. If you want to stock up on Tiger Balm or something it's OK, but it lacks color.
A very organized and controlled society, however. More than any Western country. Singaporeans are really well behaved and rarely break laws. This was due to its longtime leader Lee Kwan Yew who ruled Singapore with a strong fist. It IS very disciplined, perhaps the opposite of Malaysia...

Catya: I don't know much about sigapore and its people... i have been interested to visit because of how some of the movies portrays it as a vacation spot... I have heard some stories though about the discipline that you are talking about. I thought malaysia is disciplined too... or i could be wrong. Thank you for the information. i certainly wouldn't wanna be in a boring place... but I will do more research about it whenever i decide go inshaAllah.

I have lived in Malaysia for a while; long enough to decide whether I would consider living there or recommending it to anyone. I've been to most of the place you have posted pictures of. They are very worth seeing and experiencing. Like many of you have said, it is a great holiday destination, a place for the whole family, for the ageing father to enjoy scenery, for mothers and daughters to do a lot of shopping. For the family as a whole to enjoy the high class (and not so high class) restaurants, night life and markets. To, with ease travel to breathtakingly beautiful Masjids within close proximity. As for living, I haven't been to the other cities, but I can speak for the city life and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It is a country that has very little security. Especially if you're moving from the West, it is, I wont say impossible, but highly improbable to adjust to. The night life is a threat to any stable family. Immorality, fraud and crime are dominant in the city. A visit is always a good idea before relocating.

Mahzala, were you mostly in KL?
It's true, it is too bustling and probably has become more dangerous since I was there.

However, compared with ANY large city in the Western world, unless it's really gotten way worse, I would feel more peaceful there.

However, KL in general is not as nice as Kelantan, for example. Penang is a terrible tourist trap and has been for decades.

The East Coast of Malaysia in general is so much nicer.

Zahir knows what I mean, I'm sure, from what he says. There IS an indescribable atmosphere which reigns over much of Malaysia.

Summerlove, the term Malay usually refers to the indigenous Muslim community in Malaysia. They are politically dominant, but the two minority groups have some weight too.

Shlombay, take a trip over and see if you think Manhattan is the same as these places! I'd say they are a great antidote to the pace of NYC>
