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

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 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

16 Putrajaya

The city is one of my favorites in Malaysia. If I must choose between Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, I would choose Putrajaya. Clean city, no traffic jam, futuristic building, nice people, beautiful sunset, mineblow bridge design, high class cruise with cheap price and much more. The only word I can say is THIS CITY IS INCREDIBLE!

17 Sungai Petani

There are most successful city here in Kedah necessarily in Malaysia. Growth with successfully project such as mall, house and education.

35 Kuching

It is rare to find a city in Malaysia that exists in such an easy grace such as Kuching. There are modern buildings overlooking the clean and beautiful Sarawak River with the legendary Mount Santubong as the background. The people are laid-back and friendly both to each other and outsiders. Racism is NOT tolerated here. You can find culture and ethnic in Sarawak Cultural Village and wildlife at Bako National Park not a long journey from the central city. Kuching is also like a garden city. Beautiful trees are planted everywhere. And the food! Kolo mee and Sarawak Laksa are must-haves! What's not to love about Kuching?

Yes, totally agree. a livable, clean, and healthy city of Kuching being awarded by international Organisation.

Kuching is definitely the jewel of Sarawak and East Malaysia, with its recent boom in shopping malls and beautiful greenery, Kuching is full of surprises for those who seek for it. Must visit places includes Damai Beach, Sunday Market, Main Bazaar, Cultural Village, Borneo Highlands, Jong's crocodile and many more.

Kuching have many types of races and culture.I like it
