Yes, business travel in Malaysia can be safe, as long as the right security measures are in place.  Road traffic collisions and opportunistic crime are a few of the considerations when traveling in Kuala Lumpur.  Traveling outside major cities can increase the risk of kidnap-for-ransom, especially when traveling to, or in the vicinity of the resort islands.

As a business traveler, it is wise to consider secure transportation to facilitate travel in the region.
