Malaysia in Top Ten Countries to Visit in 2010 by Lonely Planet

What a pleasant surprise to hear that Lonely Planet rated Malaysia as one of the top ten destinations to visit in 2010. Below is excerpt of the article:
Malaysia often gets criticised as being mild in comparison with its grittier neighbours, Thailand and Indonesia. It’s true, natural disasters and coups only seem to happen across its borders, the roads don’t have too many potholes, buses and trains have air-con and plush seats, and hotels are of international standard. While troubles are few, visiting Malaysia lets you leap into the jaws of one of the most interesting parts of Southeast Asia’s roaring cultural smorgasbord – and not be too worried about it. Cheap connections to Europe and great exchange rates mean that you won’t get eaten up by your wallet either.  "

My comments:  It is certainly safe from natural disasters and political coups, plus definitely still a cheap destination considering our exchange rate depreciated against a few major currencies except the US$.  Only thing pricier is the "sin" products e.g. liquor.  Must try the many great cuisines and I do miss the food whenever I am away. :P
