Malaysia is considered a very cheap place to travel around but as for 3 months...i could not figure out any number for you, mate. And you do not state which states you will be going to and what kind of accomodation and transportation you expect going here and there in Malaysia.

IM NOT GOING FOR 3 MONTHS, IM GOING TO GO TO MALAYSIA IN 3 MONTHS TIME. IM ONLY GOING TO BE OVER THERE FOR 3 WEEKS.

I DONT MIND ON THE ACCOMADATION, IT CAN JUST BE HOSTELS OR CABINS I DONT MIND.

I JUST NEED A FIGURE THAT WILL GET ME BY FOR THE 3 WEEKS, JUST FOR SOME TRAVEL, BAASIC FOOD AND LODGINGS

Hi Adam,

GBP16 (~MYR100) a day is more than enough for you to spend on accommodation, food and transportation. Then again, I suggest that you budget more in case you need to splurge on food and drinks (esp. alcoholic) or any other things. GBP20 (~MYR130) would be a very comfortable figure. :) It all depends on how and where you spend.

Just to give you an idea, depending on size, McDonald's value meal can cost you from GBP1 to GBP1.85 (MYR6.50 to MYR12) each. And fast food can be considered expensive for many locals.
