5 Days in Kyoto & Osaka for RM 3000 (ALL IN)
Winter is probably the worst time to visit Kyoto and Osaka. There weren’t any sakura or koyo (red leaves) in sight and we were freezing the whole time, but it was still a fun and memorable experience. We plan to head back someday to enjoy the city in warmer temperatures. The only good thing is hotel rates are low and flight tickets are cheap during this low season. Hence, we manage to keep our budget low. It is pretty amazing that we spent less than RM 3000 per pax (excluding shopping and souvenirs of course), as we never stinge on food – ate so much throughout the day, splurge on a very expensive matsusaka beef dinner and etc. We also had a very nice ryokan experience during our stay in Kyoto – not cheap but worth every single cents.
