Don’t drink – As Malaysia is a Muslim country, drinking is frowned upon but it does happen. However, to restrict it, the authorities have made drinking very, very expensive. Save your drinking for countries like Thailand, where the alcohol flows more freely and is better on the budget.
Travel in the offseason – Traveling during the monsoon season (late November to mid-February) is one easy way to save money on flights and accommodation. With significantly fewer visitors, everything is cheaper. To avoid the worst of the rains, skip the east coast.
Use Grab – Grab is like Uber and is often cheaper than both taxis and tuk-tuks, especially if you’re getting a ride from the airport in Kuala Lumpur).
Escape the city – Much of the popular areas in Kuala Lumpur are designed for tourists and can be expensive. Skip the crowds and head to somewhere like Petaling Jaya, a smaller nearby city that has all the perks of KL with none of the downsides.
