Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Kuala Lumpur's modern skyline is dominated by skyscrappers and minarets. Malaysia's capital city is packed with historical sites, skyscrapers, lush parks, mega shopping malls, vibrant street markets and trendy nightspots. The city is a melting pot of cultures; a mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and Western influences. This mix of culture is reflected in the food - this city offers a mouth-watering mix of Asian and Western culinary. To avoid KL's all-too-frequent traffic jams, the city is best explored on foot.

While Kuala Lumpur is not as safe as Singapore, Chiang Mai or Bali for women digital nomads, reports of violent crime against foreigners are uncommon. Petty crime such as purse snatching and pickpockets are common. After dark, take taxis and avoid walking alone in quiet or seedy parts of town. Dress modestly and be respectful, especially in conservative Muslim areas.

Kuala Lumpur is a great city to be based as a digital nomad. Most people speak good English, and there's a number of co-working spaces too. Living costs in KL are quite cheap, and the standards are good.

Kuala Lumpur's weather stays hot and humid most months, meaning Malaysia's capital city is ideal for visits all year round. The city is affected by two major monsoon seasons yearly (between October and January, March to April) and during this time certain areas face some short rainfall and thunderstorms. May to July is the best time to visit KL as the entire country goes through a dry spell, resulting in blue skies and steamy temperatures.
