Travel tips to Kuala Lumpur

Keep Your Accommodation Address with You

This might sound ridiculous but it is important nonetheless. We tend to underestimate ourselves and assume we have it all in our heads. It is best to have it with you at all times because when you need a specific direction back, you can refer to it easily. It is best to keep it on paper as well because you will never know when the handy-dandy technology will fail you when you need it the most.

Less is Best when Traveling

We are not going minimalist here, but minimalism can help you get more things done. In order to determine how many you should bring with you, you should always go back to the question of where and what. Where are you going? What will you be doing? This will bring you back to the consideration if you do a lot of walking, then it is best to bring something you are comfortable with. The key example is to wear your everyday clothes because you know what you are comfortable with to go about your day. Don’t overthink too much on a “just in case” situation because that is the number one trap to bring more with you and in the end, it will just make your bag heavier with things you can either reuse or get easier there.

Travel Insurance

Be it whether you are traveling domestic or international, it is important to gear yourself up with travel insurance. This is pretty much self-explanatory because you will never expect what could happen when you are abroad. Even if you are traveling domestically, should things go out of your control such as accidents or sickness, you will have the leverage of insurance coverage.
