Watch Out For Overcharging Taxi Drivers

Taxi Driver Scams: Watch Out For Overcharging Taxi Drivers

If you intend to go out for a drink or see how the nightlife in Kuala Lumpur is, then I'd suggest that you should take this warning seriously.
After Midnight, there will be taxi drivers who are more than willing to take you back to your hotel with a condition that you agree not to use the meters and pay them a ridiculous amount.

I agree with some people that there's not much choice and the government is not doing much to help the passengers with this scam but they take advantage of the helpless tourists and even locals who aren't driving.

For a short trip, they would charge 4 to 5 times higher than the usual price. Be careful!
