Malaysia: Transit in Kuala Lumpur

I was able to get those "free" AirAsia tickets a few months back so I'm on the backpack trail again. As always, I have to transit in Kuala Lumpur. So from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport Low Cost Carrier Terminal (KLIA-LCCT), I took the SkyBus to KL Sentral for RM9. The airport is about an hour away from town and it's good they have these shuttle buses since taking a taxi will make a dent in your budget big time!

From KL Sentral, I took an LRT to the Pasar Seni Station in Chinatown and after finding a place to stay for the night, I walked around. I had some Indian food (roti canai and Horlicks ais) for early dinner and then went back to the hotel to take a nap while waiting for my SSEAYP friends. I met up with Mariam from Singapore at about 11:30 p.m. Then we met up with the Malaysian PYs (Paktam, Az and Dayang) for some late night drinks.

The next day, I passed by KLCC to take photos of Petronas Towers. Then I was off to the airport again for my flight to Jakarta, Indonesia. I had my favorite nasi lemak at the airport as well as on the plane. Check out more photos in Multiply.

  4. Malaysia travel industry has seen a boom in budget travelers since the opening of Air Asia. Now it is so cheap to visit Malaysia, not onl is the flight cheap, there are many new budget hotels around like the prescott inn kl, tune hotels and many more. I would say this is the best time to visit Malaysia.
