What to do with an 20 hr stop over in KL -

Postby scoffer » Sun Jul 21, 2013 11:01 am

Suggestions anyone, I'm flying Air Asia and land in KL at 7.30 AM and will be catching a flight the next day at 7 AM to Laos.
Suggestions on how to amuse myself, what to see and a cheapish place to get 5-6 hrs sleep.( Preferably near the Airport )

Thanks

Since I'm not in a hurry to be anywhere, any suggestions on spending 2 days or so in KL would also be warmly received.

Petronas Towers? KL Tower? Chinatown? I recall a couple of decent bars around Chinatown.

Not in the way I'd originally planned, I guess I'll be hiring a bike just to travel around wherever I am at the time.

Given the traffic:

Day 1: travel into town
Day 2: travel back to the airport
And don't your hated governments also serve to both leverage and reign in your other hated bête noire, unbridled capitalism? (scobienz, Sunday April 16th, 2014)

If I remember right---like an hour & a half bus ride between the airport & the downtown bus station. Pretty smooth sailing both ways in the evening. Neat looking city. Chinatown (Pasar Seni) was only about 1 stop from the bus station (KL Sentral). I'd stay somewhere around there. You can see some nice street murals along the muddy Klang river----neat buildings, glimpses of the nearby KL Needle (tower), lots of greenspace, lots of Indians, even though Lit. India proper is 1 stop the other direction (Bangsar). Lots of different tourists, but not excessive. Just walk.

I highly recommend seeing the Batu caves. It is a calm 45 min (or so) light-rail ride from the Chinatown region. Free to get in. A bunch of small Indian cafes to eat at near the base. Huge, dripping, cool, colorful. Quite a steep, wide set of stairs to get in, crawling with macaques. Spend a couple hours there.

Get over to Bukit Bintang for dinner. Lots of great eateries. Modern with a touch of seed in spots. Actually a decent area to stay---but not nearly as quaint & green as Chinatown though it is much closer to KLCC (Petronas) on foot. If you need electronics go to Plaza Low Yat. Come night--the seed amps up a notch--but not scary like... A couple, nicer, open air places can be found around Bukit Nanas, a short walk 3 stops away. ETC.

I was just at Batu Caves a few weeks ago. I didn't see any magic mushies being sold by anyone. Maybe? I wasn't looking for them. But there were no obvious deals being made. The only thing I tripped on were the fucking steep stairs on my way up.

For Dog's sake, somebody warn the inhabitants of the KL gay bars! :lol:

Is there no shelter from the storm under Malaysian labour law?

Honky tonk woman!
