We have a short stop over at Kuala Lumpur airport and would like to know what currency can be used in shops there please.

    VISA, MasterCard, American Express, etc... They probably also take US dollars, euros, pounds, yen, etc., but the exchange rate will be rather unfavorable.

You can use USD, but may receive change in MYR. You could also take out money at an ATM.

Depending on your bank fees, you might be better off using a Visa or MasterCard.
