For the first time my department held a group tour to Bangkok in 3 trips. So, I was in the first trip. To compare Bangkok and KL is like heaven or earth either in good or in evil ways.
Development wise, KL is much-much better. They have only one skyscraper, The Baiyok Tower. Too many abandoned projects and buildings. The building quite dirty. Very hot and humid not so much trees.
People wise… every day you gonna fall in love, not just with their beauty but their attitude and soft-spoken even in quarrel. Thais IMHO are the most patience drivers, you hardly hear any horn even with their bad traffic jam for whole day.
Shopping wise, there are some gives and takes. My interest are on IT, electronics and cameras, unfortunately they are expensive here, event with The VAT Tax refund. The pirate DVD also expensive and the quality is bad compare to KL. Others than that, its a heaven especially for women… anda akan dirasuk hantu shopping. They have too many shopping center in one places.
For tourist attraction, off course for a foreign country everything will be an attraction. They have good as well naughty attraction… ehem… ehem if you know what I means. IMHO Bangkok purely city of shopping and entertainments no so much on the sceneries and sight seeing.
