Seeking ideas for 8 hours stopover at Kuala Lampur..

Hi all,

I got an 8 hour stop in KL on my way to HKG (arriving 0730, departing 1540, Malaysia airline). Have been reading articles in FAQ and all.. wondering if I will get enough time to visit the following (basically the popular sights):

KLIA --> Petronas Twin Tower (along with KLCC Suria probably) --> Sri Mahamariamman -->Central Market --> Heritage Walk?? (as it's the highest rated attraction) --> Bukit Bintang area --> KLIA

Planning to take train from/to KLIA and probably GoKL bus in between the sights (oh, want to know how frequent are those GoKL buses as well, any references??)

Cheers :)

The time schedule for you would likely be as follows

730 arrive KLIA

800 exit restricted area

830 KLIA express reaches KL Sentral, transfer to LRT

900 LRT reaches Petronas Twin Tower, breakfast at cafes on ground floor?

1000 Twin Tower shops open

1100 Walk to Bukit Bintang using walkway

1120 Arrive Paragon Mall @ Bukit Bintang

1220 Lunch at Lot 10 Hutong

1300 Explore other malls in Bukit Bintang

1340 Catch Cab to KLIA (@ RM 80-100 max)

1440 Arrive back at KLIA

1540 Flight Departs

So no, you do not have time to do all that you want to do, without simply rushing here and there and spending a few mins at each place only.

Hi

Agree you don't have enough time to do what you have scheduled - and Maics timings are if all goes to plan . . . You don't have 8 hours, you have 6 hours if it all goes well!

Personally I would take an easy, and book your PETRONAS Towers tour before you travel for around 11ish, then get to the city, do the tour (about 1 hour), wander around Suria KLCC and the Park, then get the train back to KL Sentral and catch the train from there.

You don't have time for any visit to Chinatown and Sri Mahamariamman and Central Market, certainly no time for a Heritage Walk, not shopping time in Bukit Bintang area, or to use the GoKL bus in between the sights. If you want to do these things, then you need a full day and overnight stop (ie catch the same plane out but the following day!)
