    I'm toying with going on a lengthy photo trip to Malaysia. I think, a base in KL with a rented apt with internet connection would be my best bet. I'm talking 3 months, until I can get lengthier visa stays sorted. Any info would be appreciated about photography in Malaysia, especially do's and don'ts etc.

    I've been in China 4.5 years, and I really want to see more Asian countries. So, the KL base could be a hub for me with Nam; Laos; Cambodia in the pipleline.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
    Dave Tait.

    Don't miss the twin tower in KL. Do visit Taiwan if you have the chance, lotsa scenery places around center/southern taiwan. And up north there's the Taipei 101 building, etc. If your planning to come over, I'd let you know which place to visit. =)
