What is the price of stuff in Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur?
It is a city of many cultures and ethnicities. Chinese, Indians & Malays make up the majority of the population. Kuala Lumpur is a mixture of different Asians cultures, but also very influenced by the West, because of the country`s past, as it was once colonized by Western powers.
The travel to Kuala Lumpur from Cebu with AirAsia was slightly shaky and we had a little bit of turbulence under way. I am not a fan of turbulence, but I forget all about that once I landed and experienced how very efficient, polite and nice the Immigration is at Malaysia. You just have trust me on this one, in Asia there are a lot of assholes that work as immigration officers.
Once checked in at the hotel the clock is already turning to night. My hotel, the Swiss Inn, is located in ChinaTown. China Town is a place that gets lively first at night, and features a huge night market. Swiss Inn is also very close to the downtown city centre.
Price / cost / expense Malaysia:
1 beer : 24 Ringgits, 5.8 USD, 48 NOK
1 pair of fake sunglasses : 20 Ringgits, 4.8 USD, 39 NOK
1 city tour : 100 Ringgits, 24 USD, 198 NOK
Hotel room accomodation rate per night : 111 Ringgits, 27 USD, 219 NOK
You Need To Travel to Malaysia, Why?
To be in Kuala Lumpur is very pleasant. People are nice and polite, the city is clean and the skyline is quite impressive. Being a tourist here is simply awesome!
Among the many tourist places to see and experience in this city you will guaranteed see the Petronas Twin Towers. They go 458 meters up in the sky and are the tallest twin towers in the world.
Malaysian culture is complex, it is basically a cultural and racial melting pot and sure enough the city lives up to its image as a multicultural place. The Chinese Malay`s make up for about a quarter of the population, making them the second largest ethnic group.
To visit the Chinese temple, Thean Hou, is a must visit. It is a grand temple situated well up in the heights which makes it an ideal place to also gaze at Kuala Lumpur`s skyline. There is no entrance fee to the temple, and you can film and take video most places.
A holiday in south east Asia should always include Malaysia, and over 25 million people agree with that, yearly. Tourism is a big part of Malaysia, and for a good reason. In the capital city you will find tourist attractions around every corner.
My Favourite Museum in Asia is Here
While doing my vlog I realise that the national museum in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia is becoming one of my favourite museum`s in Asia. It is a big museum with many artefacts to see. There is hardly any entrance fee to pay, and the small fee you actually have to pay is trivial compared to what you get in return.
Kuala Lumpur is a city with lots of things to do, and wether you choose to explore the city by car or by foot does not really matter. The city in itself appears well organised and getting around is not a problem.
The national museum features Malaysia`s history in exciting way, through different galleries. Starting from ancient times, going through the colonial era and heading up to modern day Malaysia.
On my 6 month travel vlog to Asia, visiting 5 countries and seeing tons of tourist attractions I must say that Kuala Lumpur is one of my favourite city`s.
After the musum visit, in this Kuala Lumpur blog, I head to the war memorial and learn more about the Malay`s fight with the Japanese during WW2 and the communist insurgency.
I also visit the King`s Palace and Merdaka Square. My driver tells me the Royal Palace is brand new as of 2017 and cost a whopping 1 billion Ringgit.
Merdaka Square represent Independence Day in Malaysia. It is where the Malaysian flag was raised for the first time.
