After the Malaysian MotoGP, I made quick stops in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur, and Malacca, a picturesque city on the west coast. I found KL to be much more modern than I expected. In many areas it is similar to Singapore. The prices are much cheaper thought, as alcohol is about 1/3 of the cost compared to its more expensive neighbor.
One of my favorite activities during this long trip has been attending sporting events around the world. About a month after attending the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix, I had the chance to go to my first live MotoGP race in Sepang, Malaysia.
