Kuala Lumpur

Money & costs



You’ll seldom be far from a bank/ATM. Moneychangers offer better rates than banks for changing cash and (at times) travellers cheques; usually open later hours and on weekends and found in shopping malls.

Moneychangers and banks are found on every other corner in KL. Rates are fairly consistent, though private moneychangers sometimes offer slightly better rates for cash than banks. Most banks and shopping malls provide international ATMs (typically on the ground floor or basement level).

Useful places to change money include the following:

Maybank Forex Counter (Jln Hang Lekir, Chinatown; 10am-6pm)

RHB Bank (Ground fl, Suria KLCC; 10am-7pm)
