I will be visiting friends in Kuala Lumpur in July, and have a weekend trip to Hanoi already planned. Any recommendations for another side trip? Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, etc.?

Fly up to Bangkok.

No visa required if you arrive with a round trip ticket or flight out within 30 days.

From BKK (Suvarnabhumi Airport) during day hours you even have cheap rail service to the city area. In Bangkok you have cheap city rail service too. Lots to do from popular tourist sites to shopping to nightlife, etc.

Singapore isnt very far away and nice place to go for a weekend, not the cheapest, but nice to see

Thanks for the suggestions. I did Singapore last year to visit a family member. Good thing because you're right, it isn't cheap.

I say head up north to Penang and Langkawi Islands, for a few days on each...you can get cheap flights from KLIA to Penang... no hassles with visas and departure taxes if you're staying in Malaysian territory. The islands are quite different to mainland Malaysia. Give it a try...the Islands are nice. Bon-voyage.:)
