Most Western visitors will find Malaysia fairly inexpensive, although it is noticeably more expensive than neighboring Indonesia. You can live in hostel dormitories and feast on food from street vendors for less than RM50 a day, but you’ll want to double this amount for your comfort, especially if you’re traveling in more expensive East Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur is also generally more expensive than the rest of the country. At the other end of the spectrum, luxury hotels and airfares are comparatively affordable, with even the most luxurious 5-star hotels costing less than RM400/night.

It can be dangerous for travelers in Malaysia, so you can take out different travel insurances to cover those risks. This will allow for any medical or other assistance you may need during your trip to Malaysia.
