    The two inflight catastrophes did not hurt Malaysian tourism, but may have actually helped. More of the traveling public knows of Malaysia today and many most likely would not have knowingly ticketed or flown on either carrier.

    We've all heard the saying: "There's No Such Thing as Bad Publicity"

    I've been the Kuala Lumpur but not elsewhere in Malaysia, it has been high on our list of travels for awhile now. If the value is there on Malaysian, I'd fly them U.S.A.-KUL

    In KL we enjoyed the Batu Caves: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batu_Caves

    Kuala Lumpur is a beautiful and modern city, and yes, Malaysia overall is a beautiful country to visit. So far we have visited Kuala Lumpur, up the Petronas Towers, double decker brigde on the 41/42nd floor, plus their new observation deck on the 86th floor, speaking of going "up", we loved the KL Tower too, all worth one or more visits, Johor Bahru which is just accross the strait, north of Singapore, Miri, the Oil City in Sarawak incl. the Grand Old Lady, the first Oil well in Malaysia, Kota Kinabalu, the capital of Sabah, beautiful city mosque and Sabah museum. Looking foward into our future to explore more of this beautiful and diverse country. While on Borneo we also visited Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of Brunei, plus Seria for the Billionth barrel monument overlooking the sea. Thanks for the Batu Caves recommendation. Cheers. :)
