My heart goes to Penang.

The glorious food!! We have beaches, hills, colonial buildings, gardens, malls, modern high rises, not so hectic lifestyle, nice weather, a good mix of Chinese, Malay, Indian, Eurasians and not forgetting our considerably large expat community. Northern region's centre of everything, education - USM, INTI, Disted Stamford, Segi, IPG, KDU etc. Longest bridge in Malaysia.....bla bla bla.

picturesque views! Well, it's my hometown, of course i love it so does other Penangites elsewhere. Penangites are known as ' Penangites Balik Setiap Minggu' (PBSM) in my college coz we penangites are always homesick. We miss the food etc etc and we don't fall for KL as easily as our classmates from other states, lol. Hope i don't offend anybody, hahaha.

Second best city to live in -------> Subang Jaya - Everything in 1 place.

-------------> Bukit Damansara/Pusat Bandar Damansara/Medan Damansara - Nothing except for it's very strategic location. Short distance to Bangsar, Sri Hartamas, Bandar Utama, TTDI and KL.

Let's analyze state or city by city...

My personal choice.

Penang
- basically I am from Penang, so there's a little bit of bias. OK, Penang has almost everything that the citizens need, of course perhaps maybe for certain things you still need to get it from KL. However, Penang has the city, has the beach, has the mountain, has the historical value, has the economic power, has the job opportunities, has good connection to other countries (air, road and sea)... the list goes on.

KL
KL, well, KL has everything... more than one needs. However, one thing that KL lacks of is the beach. Some of you may argue that you can go Port Dickson, but that's not within KL. Even mountain, Genting is not considered as part of KL's, although is reachable. So, I would consider KL to be lacked of some natural sites. But, to be the most developed city, most populated city and most advance city in Malaysia, KL can promise you everything you need, job... shopping... and everything!

JB
Honestly, I don't quite like JB. My apologies to all Johorians. JB has the economic power too. Job opportunities are highly available too. But, to be honest, if I were to choose to live in JB, I rather step one step ahead and move to Singapore which can promise me a better living and perhaps job offer.

The rest of the cities, towns... I am not very sure... other highly recommended cities will be

KK
Most developed city in east Malaysia. It appears to be like KL in west Malaysia. So, I presume KK can give you everything you need.

Kuching
Cleanest city in Malaysia. That's the selling point.

All the above are just my personal feeling

For me, my ranking is:

1)Klang Valley- my preferable place that i would like to go after graduate from MMU!
2)Johor Bahru- my favourite place that i prefer after KL and high developed city in my own view.
3)Melaka- the place i live for few years during my university time and feel comfortable.
4)Penang- the place i think quite good too but too far from hometown.

I list some of them----

1st - Malacca - Well, what can I say...This is my home town..I just love Malacca..not much reason I can give...traffic not as bad as other states...Loves the food here.....food are not that expensive....Love the people here...and also love all my friends in Malacca ...

2nd - PJ - I loves Kl but I decided to choose PJ bcoz of the terrible terrific jams in KL ......PJ also have one of the largest mall in Malaysia - 1-U...Maybe I might go KL work after my graduation But hope to live outskirt of KL ...perhaps Pj, Ampang, Shah Alam and so on...

3. Penang - one of the fastest developing state in Malaysia.....Quite a lot numbers of high rise buildings.....has some nice shopping malls....has longest bridge in Malaysia ....For me, penang comes second after KL.....

I would say KL. Unless someone tells me what other cities have to offer that is nice that KL does not offer.

Penang! don't you love it when you can go to a historical city, then to a modern shopping mall, then the beach, the hills, cross the straits, and back to the city again all in one day?

Penang is my number 1 choice!!!
I have stayed in Johor for 4 years (study) and now working in Shah Alam (2 yrs) and of course grow up in Penang-Butterworth. No place is better than living in Penang/Butterworth. Standard of living is high, but expenses is low. No need to go out with car everytime (like in KL/PJ), sometime can take motorbike. Beach, Mountain (BM Hill, Penang Hill), Dam, Historical Building, Malls, University, Colleges, Entertainment, Foods, Friendly People. And if you are a person who like to "chase ""STAR""', whenever there are singer from Taiwan/SG/HK, Penang will sure be chosen as one of the station for their promote tour.

Just like the advertisement in radio, "YOU GET EVERYTHING YOU WANT IN ONE PLACE"

True... I heard too Kuching and KK are nice cities. But, personally I think if you are talking about development... KK and Kuching maybe still behind Penang and JB...

I'm in Cyberjaya but I can't agree with you to put Putrajaya to #3:
How can the best livable city be without any entertainment like a theater?!

The most livable cities are not actually judged by how much entertainment really are in the area...its more to do with urban sustainable management.

I know Vancouver was the most livable city in the world few years back (or still maintain the lead till now???)

I think the most livable cities are actually judged by no disaster, no citied pressure, low crimes, lives calmly and steadily... in that city, that is what i know about it.
