How is Kuala Lumpur as a digital nomad base?

 

in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by @agirlwhotravels | 5yr  | 29 comments

Hi everyone! Iโ€™m considering moving to Kuala Lumpur for about a year or so (mainly because itโ€™s a great getaway to SE Asia islands). I was wondering whatโ€™s it like as a travel base? It would be great to hear the opinions of those of you who lived there! Thanks so much in advance!

I spent last month in KL and it was ok - Bukit Bintang area. 26. Jan > 01. Mar.

I also came from Thailand like @Riennn , oh man what a depression hit me when I entered a room in a thing they call 3 star hotel. My God!
Be sure to always check room size!
I spent 2 days looking for another suitable hotel, as from what I could see it was difficult for me to find decent place up to 30$ US/day.
Either the room is to small or there is no window.

Second thing about hotels - cleanness could be issue, I have read trough dosens of comments while I was looking for another place to stay, and I did it for same hotel on couple of websites: booking, agoda and hotels. Lots of people complaining about that.
Most of the Hotels look very poor from outside and I just got a feel that they donโ€™t care about it.
So take a good look of what you get if you are booking hotel - daily housekeeping!
I was in 2 hotels, they donโ€™t clean room unless you ask, I donโ€™t know is it just me but have that in mind.

After finding suitable place to stay the other part :slight_smile:

What I found as a good thing about KL is that when you walk into any coffee shop, there is always at least 2-3 people with laptops working something. Meaning you can sit in any of these places couple of hours without any problem and do your work.

I used prepaid Maxis (Hotlink) 4G with 2+2Gb data plan for 36RM/Month then I just buy addons of 1,5Gb for 12RM when I spend that (I spend ~ 10-12Gb/month). Download app.
Wifi in Starbucks did not satisfy my need for speed, and other coffee shops when there is lots of people with laptops can get overcrowded so itโ€™s always good to be independent.

The weather was so-so, sunny with showers, sometimes to hot when there is to much clouds, but you can always hide in air conditioned space or mall, there are lots of mallโ€™s there.

To go out, Changkat is a street where you can find bars, usually they have happy hour after 10pm. While bars in malls have happy hours until 8pm.
Eg. Guinness pint ~ 20RM, or when non-happpy hour then ~ 30RM.
Coke is cheap ~ 5RM, Caffe Latte in SB ~ 13RM.
Always check small letters to see if prices are subject to service 10% and GST 6%.

Zouk is a popular night club, entrence 45RM+ (depending on program) before midnight including a drink, and they donโ€™t allow short pants.

There are couple of coworking places, but I didnโ€™t visit them, I just kind of like more to spend same money in a nice coffee shop, and then change couple of them trough days.

For a travel guide about what to do/see etc, I checked: http://www.kuala-lumpur.ws
There is lots of things to explore.
I did go to see both towers, Petronas and KL Tower, I donโ€™t knowโ€ฆ I always climb these things even the ticket is expensive. I did KL during day and Petronas night, for Petronas you need to buy ticket day in advanced and you can do it online.
Petrosains is a must see, I really liked and recommend that. Just a tip, maybe it would be good to avoid weekend and try to get there in a time when there will not be to many children or adolescents, you can spend hours there.

Food is good, I had no problem with that. Usually regarding the food/bars I check 4sq/tripadvisor app.
They donโ€™t have pork that much because itโ€™s a muslim country so if you want to eat pork, then google for pork :slight_smile:

Overall experience was very good for me, itโ€™s a nice city, very good connected to everywhere around. You can find everything you need there, just take a good look when/if you book a hotel.
I just missed DN meetup in KL, as usual I saw it on twitter the other day, darn!

Iโ€™ve been through KL a few times and get the impression that there isnโ€™t much choice in mid-range hotels. Itโ€™s either budget guesthouses or luxury hotels. Iโ€™m going back next week and have an Airbnb, $AUD50 for the week for a studio with a decent sized balcony + all the usual facilities like gym, pool.

I guess it depends on whether you need the daily housekeeping or not.

I spent three months living and working out of Penang (the second largest city in Malaysia). I did a little write up on Medium with all the keys infos about Penang. Itโ€™s in my view the much better alternative to KL, especially since theyโ€™ve opened a new co-working space there. https://medium.com/@AlexLielacher/penang-a-new-hub-for-digital-nomads-7404907faacf#.ku3l4vng4

Lived in Kuala Lumpur for a few years. Fun city, relatively cheap and great food. Most of the expat community there is really friendly and welcoming. At the time I didnโ€™t have too much money to travel to different countries, but there were so many cheap and gorgeous places to go to within Malaysia, that I really didnโ€™t mind :slight_smile:

Also, where you live in the city can have a massive effect on what you think of the place. If you do end up planning to move there, ping me and I will be happy to chat about specific places to look for accommodation in :smiley:

Ive been staying in KL the last year, but not as a digital nomad. KL is a great getaway to SEA! The good thing is that most foreigners can get a 3 month visa on arrival!

Living costs in KL are quite cheap, and the standards are good. You can find a shared flat from as low as 650-1500 RM. But be aware the deposits are quite high - about 3,5 month rent. Cool areas are Bukit bintang (near Changkat) or Bangsar.

There are many international departures from KL airport, and with airasia its quite cheap. Airasia also has a cool ASEAN pass promotion: http://www.airasia.com/ot/en/book-with-us/asean-pass.page

There are plenty of coworking spaces in KL, but I think there are mainly locals hanging out there. Plenty of nice chic cafes to work from as well. There are also monthly events for entrepreneurs and expats so it will be easy to meet new people. You can for example check out the event called โ€œDrinkentrepreneursโ€ to meet entrepreneurs, or you can meet other expats through internations or couchsurfing eventsโ€ฆ

Good luck!

Hi Marta,

Iโ€™m live in Malaysia but currently working in Singapore.
KL is not bad for gateway to others countries and islands. As I know most of the people love the beaches in Malaysia. But you might get difficult time to have internet in islands. If you donโ€™t need then it will be great to enjoy there.

The main airport is in KL. If you are plan to stay awhile in Malaysia before going to other SEA countries, you can go to Penang and have a look. Penang island is like a Malaysia version of Singapore (but not that advance like them :smile: ). As I know there is some startups going there and it is awesome. Peoples there more friendly and not very busy life like in KL.

Is your choice now :smiley: haha. Let us know more here if you end up in KL and what you feel in Malaysia. Enjoy!

May I suggest good old Bangkok as an alternative? Itโ€™s well connected to Thai islands and everywhere else in SEA. Itโ€™s the most diverse city, I can think of.

Ofc in KL you have Air Asiaโ€™s home airport, so you canโ€™t beat those airfare prices. But Bangkok has lower costs of living than KL, so it might all equal out.

You should also have a look at Visa policies, before you make a decision.

Bangkok can be anything you want it to be. Most places along the river are the very opposite of crazy and hectic.

If you like the Huzz and Buzz of a metropolis, crazy traffic, huge shopping malls and a modern city, stay in New Bangkok (Silom or Sukhumvit).

If you like it traditional and slow with temples, canals and wooden houses and all the crazyness just a half hour bus ride away, stay in the historic center (Rattanakosin and Thonburi).

I prefer the latter :wink:

Visa policies are way easier in Malaysia. 90 days on arrival through land or by air, what a breeze compared to Thailandโ€™s current visa situation! Itโ€™s the reason why Iโ€™m currently considering Malaysia as my next location, after my time here in Thailand is over.

To me it is a good travel base and you have options to choose your co working space.

Marta,
If you ever do come around Kuala Lumpur, drop me a line and Iโ€™ll be happy to bring you around and show you what KL has to offer. Itโ€™s an exciting city, albeit a little chaotic. Itโ€™s also advanced enough for any digital nomad to operate in. Itโ€™s not as cheap as some people would like to believe, but compared to places like Australia, itโ€™s still affordable.

Itโ€™s difficult to describe Malaysia. Itโ€™s a mix of numerous cultures in one. In one corner you feel like youโ€™re in India (Brickfields) and in another Hong Kong (Chinatown). And then there are tonnes of expats in hip and happening Bangsar โ€ฆ KL is just very different.

Most people speak good English here, and thereโ€™s a number of co-working spaces too.

Hope to see you here. We need more nomads down here! :wink:

I havenโ€™t lived there, I stayed there for about 2 months. As you say KL is amazing as a gateway. The airport is probably in every mayor route for any place in Asia so that is a plus. Regarding the city itself I havenโ€™t found it super interesting, but that doesnโ€™t mean it is not a nice city. It will really depends of what type of job you are doing and what are your intentions. If you are choosing KL only because of the airport, I think you can find better options in Asia.

I dream of being a digital nomad? How do I do it?


by @programmingmark | 6mo 5 months ago | 2 comments

Hello digital nomad!

I dream of being an independent digital nomad. But it feels very elusive & unattainable with my success rate. In full disclosure, whilst I have dreamed about making money online since high school; I have not earned a single cent making money online. $0, nada, zilch!! On the contrary, I have spent a lot of time & money on books, podcasts. Even though I have spent a lot of time reading/listening to others, I do not have anything to show for it!

I have made attempts in the past to start an online business, but these fizzle out quite quickly when I do not see traction especially when the goal I have set myself is too high.

Instead of reaching for the ultimate nomadic lifestyle goal, I want to start much smaller. Really small! I am simply looking to make $50 profit per month from a new online business. Thatโ€™s it.

I need some advice from you please!

  • Is $50 profit too low? How long did it take you to earn $50 profit per month?

  • What is a good way of achieving this goal?

Thanks

How do you, nomads, pay your taxes? I mean, if youโ€™re constantly traveling, how are you going to pay taxes for a certain country if you are going to stay there a short period of time?
Or do you return to your โ€œoriginal countryโ€ and then pay them?

Hey everyone,

Iโ€™m a freelance + nomad newbie, off for my 1st proper trip in May. Iโ€™m wanting to spend a month somewhere and go from there.

I just came back from Slovenia/Ljubljana and loved it there (just a week). I donโ€™t mind โ€œsleepierโ€ places par-say, as long as theyโ€™re close to a beach or nature of some kind. In fact, I kinda like places less-busy and a bit smaller/cosier.

Iโ€™m been swaying towards Porto, but have been impressed by the rave reviews Iโ€™ve seen for Valencia.

Best place for Digital Nomad in Latin America?

Hi!

I am planning to move to Latin America for 3-4 months (Oct-January). Iโ€™ve narrowed down 6 different places that I want to visit before committing to settling down, but Iโ€™d love to get some community input.

Here are the cities Iโ€™m considering:

  • Quito, Ecuador
  • Cuenca, Ecuador
  • Medellin, Columbia
  • Cartagena, Columbia
  • Antigua, Guatemala
  • San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala

The most important things Iโ€™m looking for:

  • Fast/easily accessible internet
  • Easy to meet other nomads/make friends in general
  • Safe for women
  • Some sort of spiritual community (Iโ€™m also a yoga teacher)
  • Easily walkable city

Anyone have any experience with these places and can give some insight? Iโ€™m also completely open to other recommendations.

How do we solve housing for digital nomads?

 

by @levelsio | 9mo 8 months ago | 61 comments

Thereโ€™s been a lot of discussion on this recently.

Nomads usually stay in hostels, hotels and short-term apartments. But itโ€™s all not very optimal.

Iโ€™ve heard people suggest getting funding and building a network of houses you can stay at for a subscription price (e.g. Bruno Haid is working on that).

I donโ€™t want do physical stuff, so Iโ€™m thinking of building a platform around making housing better for nomads.

What are the housing problems nomads face? And how can we solve them with products/services?

App/tool/service for nomads to bring things from another country?


by @brmolin | 10mo 10 months ago | 4 comments

I vaguely remember hearing about such a service before, but Iโ€™m drawing a blank on the name. Basically I left my tablet on a connecting flight in Europe, right before my main flight to Thailand. They have my tablet and are willing to ship it out for me, but people have warned me thereโ€™s a big risk of it getting โ€œlost in the mailโ€ if I ship something expensive like that to Thailand.

Iโ€™m wondering if thereโ€™s a service or community, where I can find a nomad whoโ€™s in Europe/heading to Thailand soon, so I can have it shipped to them in Europe and pay them to ferry it down here for me? I met someone in Budapest a ways back who had built something for this type of use-case, but I canโ€™t remember the name of it. Any help would be appreciated!

Are there any nomads from India?

 

in India by @ankitdas123 | 10mo 10 months ago | 56 comments

I have seen a lot of posts from different people across the world, but not even a single post from someone in India, who has been a nomad, either living within the country or traveling to another one.

Would definitely love to hear stories from such people. We are a couple traveling as social nomads who are trying to bridge the gap between the rural and urban societies in India. We have started out very humble and do not have much resources, so looking out for help from the community.

How is Bari, Italy for digital nomads?


in Bari, Italy by @mitch_dina | 11mo 10 months ago | 7 comments

Greetings!
Does anyone have experience in Bari, Italy please? We are thinking of going from Dubrovnik, Croatia to Bari by boat in mid-March. Has anyone taken a boat across? Is it nice or can it be choppy? (We are trying to avoid planes, to reduce our carbon footprint, so adding more surface travel.) Also, any info you might be able to offer about Bari and the surrounds? Next step will likely be trains up Italy as the Spring progresses.
