Is an upmarket, modern city always as good as an interesting older, not so modern city?
If you look for upmarket on a budget, KL is perfect for hotels....singope will be more expensive for sure.
Personally, I preferred Malaysia.
Singapore is one of my favourite places in Asia. It gets my vote every time.
Singapore is more expensive, secure, neat, clean than Malay.
Malay is more cheaper, distinguish, unsecure, bigger, attractive place(bcos bigger than spore).
transportation is equally same.
food is also equally same for sure.
so,, wht do u prefer?
u should come to those countries.
Singapore is more expensive but if you have 5 days, you should do both! Spend 2 days in Singapore and 3 days in Malaysia! This will cover most of the places in both countries!
Singapore is not just a stop over
Hey definitely Singapore can be better option. As suggested by nich you can visit both singapore and malaysia in 5 days, but it will be very hectic for you, instead of that you can just stay in Singapore for 5 days and enjoy the tourist spots comfortably.
Singapore is better, with lot more places to visit and if you are a shopping bug, then you will enjoy it even more.
yes, my choice also for Malaysia. Kuala Lumpru is should visit at once.
Dataran Merdeka , the House of Parliament, the Istana Budaya, Istana Negara , Kuala Lumpur Tower, the Muzium Negara, Putra World Trade Centre, Tugu Negara are some of good places to visit.
5 Days in Singapore well.......... it's safer and cleaner in Singapore. You can shop around at our famous shopping "district" orchard road, visit the new RWS (Sentosa) - Casino and visit our famous zoological gardens/ night safari /bird park/ science centre 😊
Travel to both countries. Suggested iteniary :
Day 1 : Singapore/Sentosa
Day 2 : Singapore Zoo/ NightSafari Zoo
Day 3 : Singapore to Malacca
Day 4 : Malacca, Malaysia ( Former Portuguese Colony from 1511 )
Day 5 : Malacca to Singapore Airport
Thinking of visiting my favorite place, Singapore? If so I'll offer you a few pointers to ensure you get the best out of your stay.
The shopping plaza's are amazing, don't miss out Lucky Plaza the homeland of Filipino shops, and full of the people themselves on a Sunday. Far East Plaza, great for just about everything. Paradox, this is all the expensive designer gear, but still things worth a look.
Visit Sentosa Island via the cable car, or get a taxi direct.
The Bird Park, Zoo, Botanic Gardens, another must see is a visit to Little India
If you like sport, their are two World class golf courses on Sentosa Island. For horse racing, one of the best tracks in the World is at Changi.
A taxi into China Town is also worth a visit, as this place is 100% Chinese
What To Eat:
Singapore is well known for it's range of food, and you can buy almost every type of meal on the planet.
If you eat in the restaurants or hotels it will cost usually between S$10-S$20 each, eat in the food courts, and you get a filling meal for as little as S$4
in my opinion 5 days is just nice to visit both places! they are similar and yet different at the same time, so unless you do both, you'll be missing out on something..what are you into? shopping? sightseeing? adventure sports?
I love Singapore, so my vote goes to that country. I don't know, but Malaysia is much stricter than Singapore when it comes to their visitors. Plus you can roam around Singapore easily with their train system.
And in case you are planning to go to Singapore, do not forget to visit these places:
2. Universal Studios Singapore
3. National Museum of Singapore
4. Singapore Zoo and Night Safari
5. Singapore Flyer
6. Jurong Bird Park
7. Esplanade Theatre
8. Marina Bay
9. Merlion Park
10. Marina bay Sands Skypark
I think you must try the Singapore and Malaysia. 3 days in Malaysia and 2 days in Singapore. you can see different places and experience the best of the 2 countries.
Vote for Malaysia!! Tips :- must try heading to Penang Island...thumb up =)

Singapore is best Asian country and it is famous for shopping. It has local and international shopping.
Being a tour planner I understand the expensiveness of Singapore. So I would suggest you to go to Malaysia. And if I think about the day you want to travel, I recommend you the both destinations. Enjoy 3 nights in Malaysia and 3 in Singapore.
See these places in Malaysia:
Bako National Park
Petronas Twin Tower
And these in Singapore:
The Night Safari
😱 😱 😱
