What currency is used in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia?

The primary currency in Malaysia is the Malaysian Ringgit. Ringgit is the much preferred currency, but you may occasionally be able to pay for some items in hotels in foreign currencies such as US or Aussie dollars. Be aware that hotel exchange rates are often poor. You will need ringgit in all rural areas and when dealing with local shop owners. Many travel forums on Kuala Lumpur suggest that converting currency at Malaysian airports may give you poor exchange rates.
