  • @Traveller: Just to clarify my doubt. Do you mean I can transit without visa in Kuala Lumpur and travel the city. Because In Thailand I will be getting Visa on Arrival.

As an Indian national you can transit without a visa as explained here Do I need a transit visa for Malaysia?

You need a visa if you want to leave the international transit area of Kuala Lumpur airport on your outbound journey. Depending on your itinerary you may be eligible for Visa on Arrival on your return trip (Indian nationals arriving from a third country which are Thailand, Singapore and Indonesia).
