Kuala Lumpur Trip: Thu 18 – Thu 25 March ‘10
Purpose: Girls Shopping Trip (Mum 60’s, Self 40’s, Daughter 17yo)
This quick trip came about as a result of super cheap flights that came up after just getting back from KL last year (last stop in a month trip to Thailand, Laos and Malaysia with a group of friends). I returned from KL in May ’09 and said to my Mum and Daughter “you two would love the shoe, handbag and clothes shopping in KL” and whoila… a few days later airfares just too cheap to resist became available so we snapped them up.
Flights: Air Asia (Melbourne, Australia direct to Kuala Lumpur)
Accommodation: Parkroyal Hotel – booked via wotif.com (see separate hotel review)
Ground Transport: monorail system, taxi’s and walking
Other attractions this trip: Bird park, Butterfly park, KL Menara Tower, Genting Highlands Casino/Theme park
To give those interested in an idea of what we paid for some stuff I will show some costs in RINGGET under each day’s sub-heading (food, transport and accommodation items are listed as the TOTAL FOR 3 ADULTS unless otherwise indicated). Once I have listed a cost (e.g 6.90RM for 3A Monorail BB stn to KL Sentral) I have not bothered repeating it for other days we may have used this service or bought the same item, etc.
I have broken this JBR into several posts from this point on - one for each day - to avoid it being so long. I'm sorry it took so long to get to post it up here but better late than never I hope to give some value to someone else planning a similar type trip! :)
