Rapidkl Route

Linda asks…

What is the best way to tour in Kuala Lumpur – Malaysia?

Hi,
I will be visting Kuala Lumpur ( Malaysia ) and will be staying in Holiday Inn Glenmarie Hotel and would like to visit Petronas twin towers , Batu Caves and any other recommended places.
Please suggest me the best way to visit these places in Kuala Lumpur. What will be the taxi fares between my Hotel and Petronas twin tower and from Petronas Twin tower to Batu caves and back. Do I keep same taxi for whole tour or hire separate taxis as I move from one place to another, which will be economical. Is there any other places other than one which I have mentioned above which are not to be missed while visting Kuala Lumpur.
Please suggest me. Thanks for your answer.

KL Boy’s answers:

Holiday Inn Glenmarie provides free shuttle service from the hotel to the KELANA JAYA LRT station. (check with your hotel receptionist to make sure though)

Start out at the KELANA JAYA LRT station, take the LRT to the stop KLCC : Petronas Twin Towers (it stops right under the shopping center part of the building – Suria KLCC).

From KLCC, take the same Putra Line LRT to Central Market, the stop is PASAR SENI. Check out the nice stuff there, and don’t forget to bargain should you want to buy anything.

From PASAR SENI, take the same Putra Line LRT to TERMINAL PUTRA. From there, you can take a cab to Batu Caves, not far at all.

Going back, you can either take a cab directly to the hotel(easier), or take the cab-LRT-cab route back. I’d recommend a direct cab coz i bet you’d be beat from climbing all those steps up Batu Caves.

Visit http://www.rapidkl.com.my for the LRT and Bus routes.
Your hotel receptionist should be able to help you in deciding routes.

Or, if all else fails, drop me a line and i’d be glad to help.

Enjoy your stay!

Mark asks…

How can I go to Star Lrt Taman Maluri from Pasar Seni Kelana Jaya Lrt line, please?

I am heading to IPB and its online website says it is five minutes walk from the station. Should I take a taxi (estimated fare?) or simply walk (is the building visible from the station)?

KL Boy’s answers:

Institut Profesional Baitumal is located at Lot 1363, Jalan Perkasa, Off Jalan Kampung Pandan, 55100 Kuala Lumpur.

Although its says that it is only 5 minutes walk from Maluri LRT station, i doubt it coz it could take about 30 minutes to get to Institut Profesional Baitumal in Taman Maluri from the Maluri LRT station.

The best option to get there is via rapidKL city shuttle (BANDAR) bus route no B112 which goes to Taman Maluri & T329 which goes to Taman Dagang via Taman Maluri.

Just board the rapidKL bus route no B112 (KL Sentral – Maluri LRT) at Central Market bus stop located between Pasar Seni LRT station & Central Market & disembark at Jusco Taman Maluri. The bus fare is only RM 2.00 for their city shuttle (BANDAR) service.

Next, you need to cross the road to board another rapidKL bus route no T329 (Maluri LRT – Taman Dagang). The bus will pass along Jalan Perkasa in Taman Maluri before reaching its final destination in Taman Dagang. The bus fare is only RM 1.00 for their local shuttle (TEMPATAN) service.

Michael asks…

How do i get to Damansara Intan from Sunway Pyramid by public transport?

KL Boy’s answers:

There are rapidKL buses which goes to Damansara Intan. However, you need to board at least two rapidKL buses to get to your destination from Sunway Pyramid.

At Sunway Pyramid, you may board the rapidKL bus route no U63 (USJ 8, Subang Jaya – Pasar Seni LRT), U67 (USJ 8, Subang Jaya – Pasar Seni LRT via Subang Parade) or U76 (Subang Parade – KL Sentral via Jalan Klang Lama) & disembark at KL Sentral. The bus fare is only RM 2.00 for their trunk (UTAMA) service.

At KL Sentral, you need to another rapidKL bus route no U82 (KL Sentral – Bandar Utama via Pusat Bandar Damansara) to get to Damansara Intan. The bus fare is also RM 2.00 for their trunk (UTAMA) service & since you have purchased the ticket at your first bus, just show it to the next bus driver as the ticket is valid for the whole day for all trunk (UTAMA) bus service.

The rapidKL bus route no U82 will leave KL Sentral, passes along Jalan Tun Sambanthan, Jalan Travers & Jalan Duta before entering Jalan Semantan. The bus will then enter Pusat Bandar Damansara & Lebuhraya SPRINT, passing thru Phileo Damansara. As soon as you see a traffic light junction to Jalan 17/21 (Shell petrol station on your left), you will then disembark at the bus stop shortly after this traffic light junction.

Damansara Intan is only 5 minutes from the bus stop.

Betty asks…

Help required in planing a 6d7N tour to Malaysia from delhi?

Hi Guys,

Can u suggest me which places i should visit in Malaysia for a 6Night 7day honeymoon trip to malaysia. I am planing my trip in second week of July, How is the weather in the month of july. I am strictly vegetarian, Wat are the food options over there. It would be gr8 if u can also suggest some holiday package.

KL Boy’s answers:

My proposal.

If you are travelling on Malaysia Airlilnes ( MAS ), take the Delhi-KL-Langkawi-KL-Delhi route. If you are travelling on other airlines, take the Delhi-KL-Delhi route and at the same time book the KL-Langkawi-KL flight with AirAsia ( http://www.airasia.com )

Day 1 – Arrival at KLIA ( preferably morning ). If you flying on MAS, you may take your connecting flight to Langkawi from the same terminal. If you taking an AirAsia flight to Langkawi, you have to take a free airport coach from KLIA to LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal). 10 minutes bus ride from KLIA

Day 2-3 Spend your time in Langkawi ( http://www.langkawi-info.com ). Langkawi is a world renowned beach resort. The white sandy beaches and crystal clear sea water provide you a perfect romantic backdrop for your honeymoon. Many locals and foreigners alike go to Langkawi for their honeymoon.

Day 4 Return to Kuala Lumpur. Take a bus to the popular hill resort of Genting Highland ( http://www.genting.com.my ). Enjoy cool and fresh air up there.

Day 5-Day 6. Go around Kuala Lumpur for sightseeing. Places recommended are KLCC, KLTower ( for bird’s eye view of Kuala Lumpur ), Bukit Bintang ( shopping and entertainment ), Central Market ( souveniers shopping ), KLBird Park ( http://www.klbirdpark.com ), Merdeka Square, Batu Caves ( hindu temple – http://www.malaysiasite.nl/batucaveseng.htm ) and Sunway Lagoon ( http://www.sunway.com.my/lagoon ). To travel within Kuala Lumpur city centre, you have 3 options. Taxi – not recommended as tourists are often fleeced by irresponsible drivers. LRT – highly recommended ( fast, cheap and convenient – http://www.putralrt.com.my ) and the last option is by public bus – http://www.rapidkl.com.my ).

Day 7 – Depending on the time of your departure, you can either just rest and stroll around KL to glimpse the daily ongoings of people in KL. If your flight is in the evening, perhaps you may want to go to Putrajaya for some sight seeing. Putrajaya is the new administrative capital of Malaysia ( more for some photo snappings, unique buildings, lakes ). Putrajaya is only 20 minutes away from KLIA.

For food – you’ll have no problem. There are many vegetarian restaurants around. Almost all Indian restaurants ( even if they are non-vegetarian ) have full vegetarians fares in their menu.

Month of July – Hot. Being a tropical country, Malaysia is hot throughout the year. Only in the end and beginning of the year, it is slightly cooler due to rainy season.

Enjoy your honeymoon and welcome to Malaysia
