Money Saving Tips

Save money as much as possible! The city can be expensive or cheaper depend on you in some cases. Actually Trip in Malaysia not expensive if you know some tips.

1. Hotel

Choose your hotel near center or train station. You will find many budget hotels near Bukit Bintang or you can choose hotel 3-5 km far from center if it is near any train station. Most of the time, Hotels far from center offer better services and facilities in low price. So try to choose hotel and book earlier.

2. Transportation

To save money always ride on public transport. The service of public transport is very good specially train. To visit in the city use free bus named GOKL. They cover most of the tourist places. Never use regular taxi (red color) and blue taxi (expensive).Doesn’t matter it is mattered or non-metered. If you need private transport, I will recommend to use grab car for taxi especially during off peak hours. On the peak hours sometimes it is so expensive due to high demand and traffic. During peak hour try to use will be cheaper and quicker.

3. Food

Basically foods are cheap at food court or local restaurant. Street food also cheap and delicious in some places.

You will be great fan of food court or street food if you try once. Actually food court and street food are famous in Malaysia historically. There are huge varieties of food . Definitely you will wish to try different dishes but you need many days to try all types of dishes. Foods from multicultural background in food court and place of street food. Food court is better than street food in most of the cases except Jalan Alo. Eat at Mamak restaurant (south Indian cuisine) to save your money.
