The Kuala Lumpur Guide for Digital Nomads

Piazza Santo Domenico

Are you searching for a great place for digital nomads in South East Asia?

Then I recommend you to check out


The Malaysian capital is very often overseen by digital nomads. A weekend getaway for a visa run or in the worst case just a super short stop to get the possibility to return to the country where they came from. I think Kuala Lumpur is worth more, which is why I wrote a guide about it to make you have a smooth start into your nomad life there!

Excerpt From the Book

I am Barbara Riedel, and I have been living as a digital nomad since 2014. As a travel blogger, I have moved a lot in the last few years, and I am always searching for places to work, information about internet (Wi-Fi or mobile) and so on. That’s why I started a new category on my blog, Barbaralicious, called “digital nomad destinations.” These blog posts contain general information for digital nomads that enable a smooth start in a new country.

After writing digital nomad destination posts for a while, I began to think something more detailed would be nice. I wrote my first Digital Nomads Guide about my second home town – Palermo. I’ve chosen Kuala Lumpur for my seventh guide because it’s one of Asia’s main visa run destinations. But it’s also a nice place to stay for a while, and it’s a shame that most digital nomads don’t even visit the city but instead stay at the airport hotel.

That’s why I chose to introduce you to this multi-cultural city that I have been happy to explore during my two stays. Even if you’re staying for just a few days, with this guide, you will be able to use that time to its fullest. You will learn about the best places to work, sleep and eat – and therefore have more time to do things that are more important than searching for those spots yourself.
