MALAYSIA Kuala Lumpur tips

If you are flying in to KL on an Air Asia flight you may have the opportunity of buying a Tune SIM card on board, if not you can buy one on arrival.  We found it had the cheapest rates, and good coverage and costs  RM5 including RM5 credit.

At the LCCT (low cost carrier terminal) it is really easy to get money from an ATM, in fact there is even one before you clear customs.

The terminal building houses many shops, restaurants and also offers free wi-fi.

Air Asia also have a booking desk and terminals for buying tickets up until 90 minutes before departure.

Getting in to KL is easy.  Head out of the terminal, turn left and follow the road around.  You will find the Air Asia buses at RM9 (RM6.50 booked on line) each way or a yellow bus company charging RM8 one way or RM14 return.  Both these buses take you to KL Sentral with a journey time of approx 1 hour 15 mins.

If you are doing a short overnight stay then Tune Hotel is just a short walk away but book early as the prices keep going up nearer to the date you want to book.

Alternatively go to KL Sentral, with the station behind you turn left and follow the road as it curves away from the building.  Directly opposite and on your right you will see My Hotel Sentral where a standard double with air-con etc was on special at RM108, just a little further and to the left is their Brickfields one with rooms at RM98 and this looked to be a quieter option.  We hear this is now cheaper than the YMCA. 

Still in the Brickfields area and just around the corner from the International Buddhist Temple there is a wonderful restaurant inside the Museum of Fine Arts.   Annalakshmi offer a lunch and evening vegetarian buffet and you pay what you wish.
