Currency Exchange in Malaysia

Currency exchange in Malaysia happens mostly in banks and authorized money changers, although major hotels are also licenses to exchange currencies in the form of traveler’s cheques and notes. Expats, however, generally find it hard to change currencies outside major tourist spots. Most expatriate will check with its bank in home country to see if currency exchange is of interest or if a USD account will be needed at first.
