I have been to all three places. I would say Bangkok and SingPore. I really did not like Kula Lumpur and will never go back if I can help it. Very boringlace unles you go to the beach.

Bangkok is far and away number one out of those options. Singapore is a pleasant place to visit. It is a thoroughly modern city, English is spoken by almost everybody, and very easy to visit. It does have some interesting food possibilities. I have enjoyed visiting in the past and would gladly go back. Having said all that, Singapore is a commercial city, much more driven by commerce than tourism.

I have never been to KL. I will visit someday in the next few years. I have a reason to be in SE Asia every 1-2 years. From what I have seen of KL I will visit one day because I will be in the region. I am not sure I would make a special trip to SE Asia to go to KL.

And then there is Bangkok. Bangkok is pretty much the classic SE Asian city. Parts are thoroughly modern, other areas not so much. The diversity of experiences, food, and people is not equaled by Singapore or KL. In my opinion the other 2 do not come close. It is obvious I am a Bangkok fan, but I can't imagine making a trip to that corner of the world and leaving out Bangkok. I would understand if you have already been there, but if you have never been to Bangkok and you are going to SE Asia, you really should hit Bangkok.

In conclusion, Bangkok and Singapore.

I would vote with the above. Bankok and Singapore. Bangkok being the more interesting one. Having said that, Singapore can be a whole lot of fun with kids, it's clean, the public transport is fast, efficient and there are lots of activities for children and adults and plenty of things to see.

KL is similar to Singapore in a lot of ways and just modern, some good things to see but far less interesting.

Bangkok and Singapore definetely.

Singapore is very expensive compared to Bangkok, so may be you balance your budget out that way too. One cheap city, one more expensive one. Enjoy.
