    Being safe on a night out in Kuala Lumpur


    Kuala Lumpur, like any big city, has its share of crime but violent crime is rare and since Malaysia is a Muslim country there is not as much alcohol freely available as in some other big cities and not the same level of drunk people to contend with.

    If you suffer an injury as the result of an accident while in Kuala Lumpur then you might be eligible for travel accident compensation. If the accident was someone else’s fault and it happened within the last three years then call Accident Advice Helpline to speak to one of our friendly advisors and see what the process is.

    One of the main problems in Kuala Lumpur is petty crime; pickpockets and bag snatches are common even among locals.

    Most bag snatches occur when:

    1. You leave something on a chair or table in an outdoor café or other public place and somebody walks past and swipes it. This is often bags, wallets or mobile phones so be aware and always protect your items when passers by are close.
    2. Drive-by motorcycle snatches. If you wear a bag over your shoulder then bike thieves operate by riding past with the passenger snatching your bag. This can also be an injury hazard since if you get tangled up in your bag you can be dragged after the bike. Avoid this by using backpacks or keeping all shoulder bags away from the road.

    Good advice is to leave all your valuables in a safe place such as a security box in your hotel. Carry cash in pockets or with a money pouch and be very aware that you are keeping bags away from the road.

    As in all cities you should avoid poorly-lit streets and taking short cuts down narrow alleys.

    Be aware when paying by credit card that fraud has been a problem in Malaysia so if at all possible keep your card in sight at all times.

    Try not to catch a taxi alone and always ride in the back noting the number of the cab and maybe informing a friend if you are alone.

    Whether you suffer an injury from a slip, trip, fall or road traffic accident, Accident Advice Helpline has years of experience dealing with exactly these sort of personal injury claims so you can be assured you will get the best assistance.
