Malaysia travel safety advice

Malaysia travel safety advice

While the crime rate is higher than in neighbouring Singapore, Malaysia is still a safe country. Crimes towards tourists rarely happen and most crime reports are either from newspaper or FOF (friends of friends). Local people sometimes tend to be scaremongering, but when asked if they have experienced any of them ever in their life, most of them will laugh and give a relieving "no". Generally, if you avoid deserted areas, get back to your hotel before midnight and use your common sense, you'll be fine.
