Malaysia cheapest country for weekend getaway


Pavillion KL7KUALA LUMPUR, April 15 — Malaysia ranks as the cheapest country to have a high-end weekend getaway, costing tourists less than half of what they would pay in Singapore, a survey has shown.

The global price survey by Deutsche Bank Research titled “The Random Walk: Mapping the World’s Prices 2015” set the average price for a two-night holiday in Kuala Lumpur with a stay at a five-star hotel at US$480.20 (RM1,775.54), which includes the cost of four meals, two snacks, car rental for two days, two pints of beer, four litres of soft drinks or water and some shopping on the side.

It is also lower than the average price of US$541.80 for a similar stay in Kuala Lumpur last year, when the Malaysian capital lost out to Mumbai as the cheapest luxury destination in 2014 with a weekend rate of US$505.60.
