Generally speaking Kuala Lumpur is a safe place to go to, but as standard for a city pickpockets are something you need to watch out for. If possible ensure that your bag crosses over your body to avoid snatching by thieves, particularly on motorbikes. For women travellers, it is always a good idea to dress modestly within strong Muslim sections of the city. As a rule of thumb, bring a scarf or sarong with you so that you can always cover up if needed.
