Malaysia is always underated. That's why they need to build something iconic like this as symbolic spirit of their economy. FYI Tourism contributed 10-15% of Malaysian GDP.

According to GPCI Report 2020, KL is among livable in Asia. Malaysian Ringgit currency now also very cheap!

I visited there way back in 1987 and it was very impressive and KL seemed very modern even then. Singapore is right at the bottom of the peninsula and that's another place I'd love to visit again. For myself the only downside was the heat and humidity which was pretty intense but there's a lot to see, people are friendly and I'd highly recommend it.

South East Asia is tropical climate area which is very close to Equator (Temperature not less than 64F/18C for average, our summer is around 30-40C). That's why our islands around region are among famous like Bali (Indonesia) Penang (Malaysia) Phuket (Thailand) Boracay (Philippines) etc.

PNB's Merdeka 118 tower ready for tenancy in H2 2022
By Farah Adilla April 8, 2021 @ 3:34pm

KUALA LUMPUR: The iconic Merdeka 118, formerly known as KL118, is on track for completion by June 2022 and ready for occupation in the second half of the year, according to Permodalan Nasional Bhd (PNB).

The Merdeka 118 precinct is developed and funded by PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of PNB, the country's biggest asset manager.

In September 2016, PNB Merdeka had said the project was progressing within the budgeted RM5 billion.

PNB and its subsidiaries reportedly will take up 42 floors of Merdeka 118, while 14 floors are for amenities.

Four floors will become observation decks and another 41 floors are for office rental.

The upper 17 floors of the tower will house Park Hyatt Hotel Kuala Lumpur, operated by Hyatt Hotels Corp.

A signing ceremony between PNB Merdeka Venture and Hyatt Hotels was held in February 2018.

The five-star hotel will have 232 guest rooms, 28 suites, and 30 serviced apartments.

Huge numbers of Singaporeans "visit" Malaysia with the same regularity that Canadians "visit" the US (pre-covid anyways). That definitely makes up a bulk of the numbers.

Over 1/3 according to the above.
