To be honest, Kuala Lumpur is quite expensive compared to other parts of Malaysia. There is a great blend of food, shopping, and nightlife, but make sure you try all these without exceeding your budgets.
Get used to some street food
Even if you choose the option of KL serviced apartments for your stay in the city, you can always save money by opting for street food instead of dining at the top-end restaurants. Chinatown is just 10 minutes away from properties the likes of Ascott Sentral Kuala Lumpur and you find amazing food at very reasonable prices there.
Shop at Lot 10
Yes, KL has the best of shopping malls, but there are great options such as Lot 10 among them that have great prices. There are even genuine designer clothes for bargain prices and amazing deals.
Explore on foot
Chinatown and Little India have the most tourist sites within KL, however, you don’t need to spend money on transport to explore these parts. Just walk to the places and it’s not really a big deal.
Share your rides
KL has taxi services such as Uber and GRAB and tourists often use these options as regular cabs can be a little expensive. You also have the option to ‘Uber Pool’ where you can share rides with your friends and family – that will surely grant you more savings.
