Malaysia’s capital of Kuala Lumpur is the sixth most visited city in the world and combines its old world allure with new world advances in architecture and attractions. Major tourist destinations include the National Museum, the Kuala Lumpur Tower and the National Palace. However, tourists who love to shop will enjoy browsing the main shopping and entertainment district of Kuala Lumpur, Bukit Bintang. Of course, there are various smaller markets as well as a wide selection of restaurants where travellers can experience some traditional Malaysian cuisine.
Playing it safe on your trip
There are a number of vaccinations recommended before travel to Malaysia. These include:
- Hepatitis A
- Measles, mumps and Rubella
You should always check with your doctor to ensure you are safe to travel. Pack insect repellents and mesh netting as a precaution. As with any big city, beware of scams and pickpockets. In addition, the staff who work for your travel company have a duty to ensure the risks of an accident occurring are minimised.
Keep in mind the cost of your safety
You can apply for personal injury compensation if you have any accident, injury or illness on holiday that was the fault of a third party. The company will be liable to pay you compensation should this accident occur during any part of the trip you pre-booked as part of a package deal. This includes the hotel you stay at, your travel to your destination and any excursions booked in advance. If you book this holiday with a UK-based company then you are covered by UK personal injury law which means you are entitled to compensation from the company if it is at fault. It is easy to make a claim if you give Accident Advice Helpline a call.
