First timer

Hi Guys,

Traveling to Malaysia this Aug and hopefully travelling to Thailand (phuket) amongst a few other places.

So many questions to ask but i wondered what is the best way to take spending money i.e change some to currency beforehand and then have some english money or take dollars or tavellers cheques or one of the credit card type things, i dont want to lose out on charges and commision etc.

Also has anyone used air malaysia to fly - i was dissapointed when i booked and learned that i can only have 20k luggage allowance, i telephoned them try and pre book more and pay for it but was told no its not part of their policy. 20k doesnt seem like a lot for long haul esp if you want to do a bit of shopping when you get there.

Thanks everyone

20k is standard for most regular economy flights and has been for years.
