The Top Ten

1 Kuala Lumpur

Nice city I m coming soon

Beautiful city I would love to visit

Yes, Kuala Lumpur have a lot of big buildings, shopping mall and Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia (If I'm not wrong) If I am a Malaysian I will choose that place as my favorite place in the world, but still I'm Italian and mine is Rome (Don't be mad) - EmilyEgberts

Not surprise because I live in KL

Even kota bharu is not the biggest city but its low profile make kota bharu so nature

Well, I think kota bharu is one of the most low crime index in the way, they have high educarion level.yea, you can find many students in local or abroad universities are from kelantan

You can find a lot of delicious food in Kota Bharu, like nasi kerabu, akok kedut, ayam percik, nasi dagang and much more! Kelantan cuisines are definitely the stars to this amazing country

Delicious food like the Ipoh Shredded Chicken Noodles (Kai Si Hor Fun) and the legendary Ipoh White Coffee. And not to forget the pomelos! A beautiful city surrounded by limestone mountains, absolutely the best city in Malaysia!

Seremban has one of the most affordable housing and better infra structure over the past 5 years,good Council performance. Very important is good variety of excellence Chinese, Malays and indian food that are inexpensive,Keep it Up.

With low numbers of foreign workers as compared to Selangor Industries and Johore plantation, it seems more peaceful, moreover a lot of small petty traders allow many to cari makan.

13 Kuala Pilah
14 Miri City

Miri is a small city, with not so much traffic jams. In Miri there are many shopping centres. Miri has beautiful beaches. Niah Cave is located in Miri, which is a historical cave. Miri is very near to Brunei, so Miri people like to go to Brunei, and some people (Brunei people and people living in Brunei) will visit Miri on Fridays.

Nice city to live in, not many traffic jam, well planned development, slower, peaceful, cleaner & less crime compare to other town. Good place to retire.

Miri is nice, clean, well organized seaside city. The residents there are friendly and helpful too. Some places you should go visit to if you had never been there, such as Mulu, Niah and Miri coral reef national parks. Arrange a one day trip to brunei if you had extra time. An unforgettable experiences at Miri, will visit there again
