KL Holiday/Money Help
Hi there,

We are heading back to the U.K. but visiting Kuala Lumpar for a week's holiday first.

Could someone tell me roughly what we could expect to spend for a family of 5, i.e. eating out etc.

Also, would travellers cheques be the way to go, ringgit or aus dollars?

My question to you would be:
'Why do you want to spend a week in KL?'

I have to echo that sentiment I'm afraid. I like KL but it's not a week-long destination.

I can't remember the last time I used travellers cheques - are they still used? I would take a small quantity of MYR/RM and a large quantity of credit cards :) I would think you can also use the ATMs, but not certain on that.

Don't carry too much cash on you in KL.

Well, it's one of two destinations that our flight goes too and I really didn't want to have to travel elsewhere from there then back again just to get our flight back to the UK.

We've been through a pretty hectic time lately with selling up and moving into 'mothers', so anywhere will be a break for us.

We're all beached out here too so some shopping, chillin around a pool and try and get our heads together about the move back as we've had little time to think about it.

Basically it's just a stop gap and a break before the long haul flight back to Belfast.

You can use some of the ATMs.

Why not take a short flight out to Penang ? Takes 50mins. There are flights all day for about US$30-US$40, and tons of hotels there. Sure, again, beaches and shopping, but a lot quieter than KL.

All times are GMT. The time now is 7:09 am.
