Tropical Challenges - anyone done any?

Has anyone done a challenge in the tropics?

Have been in Kuala Lumpur recently and have taken the chance to look through their light rail/heavy rail system.

It's not a good idea. Only three of the interchange stations are actually interchanges in standard metro style (no touching out involved - Masjid Jamek, Hang Tuah and Titiwangsa), there are three different companies running six mostly unintegrated lines. It's 30°C all the time so running isn't an option. Note the track from Kelana Jaya/Sri Petaling to Putra Heights is a future plan.

NB: Public transport is so underused in KL anyway that they have a free bus service running through the city centre and it's possible to get a seat mid journey.

Holds some alternative challenge records. Not sure which ones.
