While we all love to travel, something that holds most of us back is our budget to do all the things we want to. This can lead to restrictions in our travel plans and often when we get there, we are stuck in our Hotel room watching boring Television. Sometimes it is the lack of information provided, other times it’s purely the budget of more like the lack of it.

1. You can buy a meal for around USD 2. Now that is 6RM. A good Nasi Goreng or Mee Goreng with a drink will be in that price range. The Traditional Hot drink called the “Teh tarik” is around RM1 to RM1.50. Now that’s 50 cents.
2. Kuala Lumpur is well known for shopping. Shopping malls flood Bukit Bintang close to Jalan Alor. The more expensive go to places like Pavilion or even Mid Valley, around a 10 minutes from Jalan Alor. However a 15 minute walk will take you to Petaling Street, “China Town”.

It will take you KL Sentral and you can connect to Bukit Bintang simply for another 30 cents USD through the Monorail. A short walk and your at Apple Hotel in Kuala Lumpur.
Jalan Alor caters for tourist so the food is a bit expensive avoid table clothes, sure sign that you will more than local rates. Avoid Taxi drivers if you can. They will charge mad prices, 5 times the local rate. I know I have missed some things, what do you think, can you do Kuala Lumpur on a Budget.
