Good to know

Berlin is the most populous city in Germany, with people from 190 different countries living in the countries' capital.

Greet Malaysians by using "Kak” for older sisters, "Abang" for older brothers, and "Uncle" and "Aunty" for respected elders to show warmth and respect

Mamak culture > Bar culture - Try Nasi Lemak, Roti Tisu, Roti Canai, and Teh Tarik for a local taste explosion.

We recommend using an e-hailing service like Grab over traditional taxis to get around Kuala Lumpur. You'll enjoy better prices and a hassle-free ride throughout the city.

Though many Malaysians speak English, connecting with the locals is even better when you use phrases like terima kasih (thank you), sama-sama (you're welcome), and selamat pagi (good morning).

While Mastercard, Visa, and e-wallets are widely accepted, cash is still essential. Consider getting a Touch ‘n Go card for seamless public transportation rides.

The weather here can be quite unpredictable so don't forget to pack a cap, an umbrella, and a hoodie to be prepared for any conditions!

Most places don’t provide free Wi-Fi so it’s best to purchase a local SIM card, e-SIM, or activate a data roaming plan to stay connected effortlessly.
