Almost dead meat!
The catchy tourism slogan ‘Malaysia, Truly Asia’ continues to ring true as this country really is a potpourri of Asian cultures. Charming cities, fantabulous food, beautiful beaches, ideal islands and national parks with wondrous wildlife-packed rainforests – all of this can be found in Malaysia
Here are a few tips and tricks to get you started with KL trip.
1) Choose places to visit before a place to stay. It is always easier to see beforehand which all places to visit and accordingly pick a spot to lodge. So you can get it in the same area and also save on the transportation cost. It saved me around 40/55 Ringgit per day.
2) Take service apartment, not a hotel -I would personally recommend @Airbnb. 1000 Ringgit for 3 nights and 1 day, with all basic home utilities.
It is a bit on the expensive side compared to the Malaysian economy, but it was worth it for the space and convenience and a filling feeling of being at home in new and strange surroundings.
3) Take Uber to anywhere –
The taxi drivers view the tourists as their source of income since they can extract more money from the tourists. That’s where uber comes for the rescue, it is cheaper and reliable.
~e.g. 10/15 Ringgit from service apartment to city
4) Airport to your serviced apartment
When you head to the lower level of KL airport, there are options for your transportation, take “coupon taxi” they have a fixed price, for example, 3-4 members and it would cost 100 Ringgit. You could take an uber too, but uber is expensive from the airport. Uber is the cheapest whilst traveling in the city.
Take your cards and 2500 Ringgit at most, sadly, KL isn’t that advanced yet that it would have apple pay or Samsung pay so take your cards physically. Transportation payment is not that much of a problem since Uber has a card payment option. All the attractions accept credit cards as well. Cash would be required to buy food and sim cards at the most.
Get your Sim cards when you go to the upper level to claim your baggage. There are about 3-4 stalls of sim card providers, pick a plan, it’s probably the cheapest there. It cost us 20 ringgit for 7GB (1MB per day), you won’t find that in the city.
These were few tips to get started with feel free to ask if any questions, as for the places you can visit on your vacay wait for another blog
