Ep.22 - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for Digital Nomads?

Updated: Dec 7, 2020

Is Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia a suitable location for digital nomads or even just a long term stay?

Our “Going to…” episodes are all about GOING TO specific destinations. Whether you’re planning a trip, considering your next destination or reminiscing about previous travels.

Although this was not our first time visiting Kuala Lumpur, this time we spent 2 weeks there at the end of June 2019 and in this Part 1 of our discussions on Kuala Lumpur, we focus on how we found it to be a suitable destination for longer-term “travel-living”.

Part 2 of the Going To Kuala Lumpur Podcast (Episode 23), will focus more on what to see and do in Kuala Lumpur as well as on our personal experiences there with regards to both sights and food.
