How far will your Malaysian money go?

Malaysia has become increasingly popular with backpackers in recent years, with hostel dorms cheap and plentiful. Private rooms at mid-range hotels aren’t expensive either but cost more in the capital, Kuala Lumpur. Four- and five-star options are available in the major cities too.

Eating three-course meals at sit-down restaurants will bump up your budget. Alcohol prices are high to discourage drinking, which is frowned upon in Malaysia. And, if you fancy a little luxury or pampering, you’ll also find exclusive resorts and spas on most of the islands.

  • Agree fares up front – taxis aren’t metered, so agree on a price before driving off
  • Take domestic flights – you can choose cheaper domestic airlines to get around the country
  • Check if you need to tip – many hotels and upscale restaurants include a 10% service charge
