Visiting a new country for a holiday can raise a few questions during the planning process. How would the weather be like? How easy would it be to acquire a mobile SIM card? What is the local language? If Malaysia is you next holiday spot, here are some tips to help you out as you chalk out your itinerary. What’s more? You can even check for more info related to bus details.
Weather: If you are from the European or Southeast Asian regions, the weather can be a bit humid for you. Do pack sweat wicking apparel as they are your best bet. Carry minimal toiletries since you will easily find them here in local shops, but do stock up on bottles of water.
Communication: English is widely spoken here, with food labels, hawker store signs, restaurant menu cards, etc. all being made available in English. Malaysia’s cellular providers—Maxis, Digi, Celcom—have set up shop at the airport.  A SIM card costs around RM20 and comes with a minimum of 400 MB 4G data + 5RM as talk time for a period of seven days. The network, even in rural areas, is quite good.
Local transport: When you disembark at the airport either pick up a prepaid taxi from the stand present there, or you can decide to travel by buses that ply through the city. Efficient and convenient, buses are considered to be one of the faster modes of transport here. Express bus stations are also set up in the different parts of the country.
