KL is seventh best value city break destination

Kuala Lumpur is the seventh best value destination in the world for a city break, according to TripIndex Cities, an annual TripAdvisor cost comparison study.

TripIndex Cities compares the cost of a three-night break during the mid-year travel months of June to August in 40 key tourist cities around the world, taking into account typical costs for two people.

These include: a four-star hotel for three nights, a visit to three attractions, lunch each day, a taxi to and from dinner each day, plus the cost of dinner itself.

A three-night city break in Kuala Lumpur costs an average of RM3,287.01, with lunch for two costing RM84.75, dinner for two and wine RM249.50, a taxi ride RM23.44 and the average price to a paid attraction is RM404.95.

The basket of items includes three nights’ stay in hotel in Bangkok, which is also the third cheapest in the world at RM333.03 per night.

Hanoi was found to be the best value city break destination, as a three night trip for two in Hanoi will only set you back an average of RM2,632.23, excluding flights, nearly three times less than the price of a break in the world’s most expensive destination, Cancun, Mexico, which comes in at an average of RM7,258.62.

The study was conducted by independent research firm, Ipsos. “TripIndex Cities helps travellers to see where their ringgit goes the furthest, but even in the most expensive cities travellers can still find a great deal by using TripAdvisor’s price comparison tool to unearth and book a great deal on flights and hotels,” said TripAdvisor spokesperson, Jean Ow-Yeong.
