No surprise there, given much of the country’s Muslim population still frown upon homosexuality, to put it lightly. What you might find surprising, however, is despite the lack of many openly gay bars and clubs, Kuala Lumpur has a thriving gay sauna scene. This is where most people might meet after connecting on Grindr or Blued, and many saunas provide facilities to relax and work out in addition to hooking up in its dark rooms.
If you’re not feeling naughty, take the day to enjoy the city’s mega-malls and amazing street food, guaranteed to give you an orgasm – the kind you won’t have to be discreet about.
