The months of December to February, and May to August, are drier than the others.
Getting to Kula Lumpur
- By air: Kuala Lumpur is served by two airports: Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and Subang’s Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (Subang Skypark). Currently, the latter is primarily used for turboprop and chartered flights, whereas KLIA, which is 45 minutes from KL city centre, is the main terminal and serves as the main hub for Malaysia Airlines and budget airline Air Asia.
- By Bus: Many people travel to Singapore first, then cross the border into Malaysia by land transfer. This route is served by three major bus companies: KKKL, Transnasional, and Konsortium Bas Ekspres Semenanjung (KBES). A one-way bus ticket costs about RM50/USD12.53, and the journey takes about 5 hours.
- Two bus companies offer this route from Thailand (Hat Yai): Konsortium Bas Ekspres Semenanjung (KBES) and Alisan Golden Coach Express. The bus fare is approximately RM55/USD13.78 (one way), with a travel time of 7 hours.
- By Train: The main rail operator in (Peninsular) Malaysia is Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB). The KL Sentral railway station serves as the primary interchange for KTM’s intercity and international trains. They offer both day and overnight train services, as well as Singapore-Malaysia and Thailand-Malaysia routes.
From KLIA to City centre
There are numerous options for getting to the city centre from the airport, the most convenient of which are buses, taxis, trains, and airport shuttle services. If you are visiting Kuala Lumpur with a group or at least not alone, my advice is to take an airport taxi or uber (Grab in Southeast Asia). An uber will only cost you RM 60/US$ 14.46 and will take you anywhere in the city.
Getting around Kuala Lumpur
Aside from taxis, Kuala Lumpur has better public transportation options such as Monorail, MRT, LRT, and local buses. You can also walk around Kuala Lumpur! The majority of the attractions mentioned in this blog can be explored solely by walking. The only place you need to take a bus or taxi is to Batu Cave, and the rest of the places are close next to each other.
Foods in Kuala Lumpur
Eating well does not have to be expensive, especially in a food-centric city like Kuala Lumpur. Wherever you are in the city, at any time of day, there is bound to be a hot dish waiting for you, whether it is Muslim, Thai, or western cuisine. In Kuala Lumpur, anything is possible.
Where to stay in Kuala Lumpur
Compared to most modern cities, Kuala Lumpur is an affordable city to visit, with a variety of accommodations to suit any budget. The higher-end accommodations frequently offer exceptional value, often at a fraction of the cost of a comparable hotel standard elsewhere.
Most visitors to Kuala Lumpur prefer to stay in and around the Bukit Bintang area because it is so close to everything, including modern shopping malls, cinemas, restaurants, and a vibrant nightlife.
If you ask me where you should stay, I will recommend that you choose a location near an MRT or LRT station anywhere in the city. Bukit Bintang is not only more expensive than other places, but you will also feel a different vibe if you stay somewhere else.
