Before we left North America and arrived in Malaysia, we wanted to get a sense of where Kuala Lumpur was in Malaysia and where it was in relation to Singapore and Thailand. And so we looked for maps to help us visualize KL’s location. 

And so, we created and collected the maps below to do just that for you to help you with your research on relocating to or visiting Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur. Some of the maps are embedded and are dynamic and others can be expanded if clicked on.
