You’re found the perfect cup of white coffee in a chic little cafe, set in a heritage building. But… pics or it didn’t happen, amiright? Posting your amazing selfie in exotic locations is a pretty integral part to any holiday these days. More importantly, Google Maps is a travellers best friend when you’re frequently exploring new corners of the globe. So having a chunk of data to use is very useful, and buying a local sim card when you land is a good way to avoid the huge shocker of a bill from data roaming charges. There are of course other options, like a good roaming plan, or renting the internet device, or relying on your hotel WiFi or hunting down free WiFi spots in the city. But I [personally prefer the reliability of spending just a little bit more on a SIM card, so I get constant good connectivity and peace of mind that I have enough data to last my trip.

We’ve picked out some of the best sim cards to get when you travel in different cities. This one is for Malaysia.
