Malaysia offers a range of accommodation options, and the price is highly dependent on what you are after. When looking for accommodation it is always good to enquire about the local traffic in the area, and to double check the daily routes you will take as a short distance can become a long commute during rush hour traffic.
Food prices are generally quite low, particularly if you are buying local products. Malaysia has a fine range of cuisine from across the world, and this is reflected in the many types of restaurants available. Street food in Malaysia is a great experience and provides for a cheap night out.
