14 hours at KUL

Any suggestions for a way to spend from arrival at KUL at 0645 hours to departure at 2145 hours in July?

Retired but active couple

Dont really want to spend the whole time in the airport, and short stay hotels are very expensive

Thanks

2. Re: 14 hours at KUL

I bit more info on who your travelling with and if in the case of Air Asia maybe a fly through and where your coming from and too. You dont say if your coming into KLIA (main KL airport) or the LCCT (low cost carrier terminal )this is needed to give you more information.

But just a little info...

Have you looked at the Tune Hotel? Its over at the LCCT terminal and its cheap and cheerful to get some rest but it does get booked up quickly. You could get either the bus or taxi (using a voucher from taxi counter) to get over there around 20 mins dep on traffic., or there are a few hotels around the airport which are not that expensive either.

Or you could have a day in KL, leaving your luggage at the airport where lockers are available, then either get a taxi (recommended again using the taxi counter) or train, or the least expensive the bus. Takes 1hour and sometimes a bit longer dependent again on traffic. Have a look around KL then back to the airport.

But as I say a lot depends on other information you can give for more ideas of what you can do.

you can prebook tickets to go up the Patronas towers.

A quick question of my own. I'm flying with Jetstar from SIN to KUL and my itinerary shows KUL as my airport so is that the main airport?

You will fly into the main KLIA terminal as opposed to the LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal) They are not different airports but different terminals..
