Is it safe to make hotel payment via credit card in Malaysia

HI, I am planning to visit Malaysia in January 2013 for which I have to make hotel reservations in Langkawi.

Can anyone suggest me if it is safe to use credit cards for payments etc???

yes of course.

Card fraud is not more a risk in Malaysia than anywhere else in the world.

Just be sensible.

Thank you so much for asking!

Thousands and thousands do it! Make sure your card isnt out of your sight where it could be skimmed.
