Well, you cannot get all three out of 'easy, cheap, quick' so you'll have to pick and choose. The Wikitravel entry on Kuala Lumpur has a comprehensive list of options available to get from the airport to the city (same article that you linked to, different section). Kuala Lumpur has a vast urban train network but the confusing part is that they are all ...
Yes. It will take less than 1 hour, by train, to get from city center to KUL. That leaves you with three hours which is more than adequate for an international flight. The biggest concern will be the time it takes to get to from your meeting to the train station. Another thing you should consider is how your luggage will encumber you.
I'm not sure why you pick Port Dickson, it's not really a favourable travel destination any more afaik. About the taxi, you should be able to get it from the airport. go to the official taxi counter and buy the taxi voucher from there only (not from anywhere or anyone else), this should be the safest way. The fare should be less than RM 150 (estimation ...
Yes, I was last in KL about 12 months ago, and they do deliver the duty free goods to the gate for you.
I believe both the main and low cost terminals at KUL are open 24 hours. I can't spot anything on the LCCT terminal website indicating otherwise. (The main terminal is definitely 24 hours) For an overnight layover like that, you might want to consider just buying access to the Plaza Premium Lounge in the LCCT. That'll get you a shower, some food and drink, ...
4.05 am ? Lucky to you - Starbucks in LCCT closes at midnight and opens at 4 am. As alternative, most fast food outlets (KFC, Mc Donalds ,etc ) are open 24 hours in LCCT. LCCT also provides 3 hours of free Wi-Fi. So you can kill your time by accessing internet. UPDATE : after did a pre-caution check, found that Starbucks in LCCT opens for 24hours.
If both your flights are on Malaysia Airlines, you do not need to pass through Immigration, just board your next flight.
It's worth noting that if your flight transits through an Australian airport en route to your final destination, you will be rescreened at the transit airport and you may not take liquid, aerosol and gel products (including duty free) in excess of the restrictions through the screening point. Please check with your airline whether your flight transits ...
Gagravarr's answer pretty much covers lounge options and KLIA. I agree there isn't a whole lot you can do at the airport itself. If you want to just relax at a cafe and grab a bite, I would suggest going to the Old Town White Coffee outlet; the coffee, food, and atmosphere at Old Town is quite good for a chain. It's definitely possible to get to KL City and ...
There's a Plaza Premium Lounge in LCCT at KUL (and also another in the main terminal). I've not been to the LCCT one, but I think it's very similar to the one in the main terminal, which I have been in a few times. You can get a shower (they'll provide towels and shower gel), which I find nice between long flights. They have a large number of chairs, some ...
True to the name, the LCCT terminal is pretty barebones and has little of interest. It's also operating at way over capacity and will be replaced by the new, larger "KLIA2" in April 2013. Sterile transfer is not possible at LCCT: you will have to enter Malaysia through Immigration, collect your bags, check them back in, and pass through exit immigration to ...
They did take USD as far as I remember, but not AUD since it would be a hassle for the retailers to keep notes and change for each country in the register. Otherwise just use your credit card, that's what everyone is doing there who does not want to exchange cash.
I've used the Plaza Premium Lounge in KUL before. You can book with them directly, but if you search around online there are various websites that sell access, and you'd probably be looking at about $30/person. In terms of the lounge, it was ok but nothing stunning. There are showers available (they'll lend you a towel), but they weren't in great condition ...
There's a Plaza Premium Lounge in the LCIA terminal at KLIA. It's not quite as nice as the one in the main terminal, but I'm told it's not too bad. They have showers there, so you can freshen up between the flights. There's free Wi-Fi, drinks, a buffet with food, nice seats, and it's open 24 hours. If you have a high-end credit card, you may get free access ...
sleepinginairports.com indicates that Kuala Lumpur airport stays open 24h. However, from the reviews, it is suggested you take the shuttle to the other terminal (KLIA), which costs less than $1US since accommodations are better and thus you may be more comfortable.
Since Emirates and Air Asia uses separate terminals at KLIA, you will be required to pass through Malaysian Immigration, and Timatic states: Malaysia (MY) Passport required. - Passport and/or passport replacing travel documents must be valid at least six months on date of arrival. So yes, I would recommend you renew your passport first if at all ...
No you cannot. While you are not supposed to use the KUL-MNL portion, you can get away with it and even ask for reimbursement of your unused portion. However, missing the KUL-MNL port will have the last portion voided as the airline will assume you missed the flight and cancel the remaining ticket.
So your question is a bit vague, but I know where I would go if I landed in KL on December 30th and didn't want to tackle the Muddy Confluence yet -- I'd go to Putrajaya, Malaysia's bizarre Pyongyang-meets-Dubai-meets-Las Vegas capital-to-be, halfway down the train line from KLIA to KL. (pictures by me, c. 2006) More specifically, I would stay at the ...
