First time flying east and we are so glad we did !
We flew out xmas eve with Air Asia. No problems whatsoever. On landing in KL we went to the ticket counter and paid 74 MYR for a budget taxi to the Crowne Plaza.
We loved everything about the hotel except getting bitten by mozzies, probably due to sitting outside in the evening for a night cap.
We decided to try and stay up the first day and managed it easily by keeping ourselves busy. We headed off for lunch in a shopping mall then over to the park near the towers which was heaving being xmas day. We then had drinks at the traders when we finally found the entrance. Lots of areas were conderned off due to New Year preparations.
The following day we went to the Albion restaurant for xmas lunch which was excellant throughout. In the evening we headed off to Little India and then onto China town for drinks and a meal. China town had a great vibe and we stayed quite a while. Large tiger beers were were 13 MYR which seemed a real bargain after the other places we visited. We used the monorail for all of our journeys and once we had worked out how to get through the barriers found it very easy to travel.
On our final day we had pre arranged a taxi for four of us with a great driver called Ravin , He arrived on time and took us to Batu caves for a couple of hours , then on to the fort a fish restaurant and finally the Firelies. We had the most fantastic day and never once felt rushed. The total price for the whole journey was 270MYR total which represented excellant value. If anyone would like hs number feel free to PM me.
Our taxi back to LCCT wasn't so positive ! The driver the hotel called for us was either ill or falling asleep on the way to the airport, we kept having to allert him. When I looked at his badge on the dash board it was a man about 40 years younger in the picture. I can only assume this guy had borrowed someone elses taxi !!!!!
All in all we enjoyed KL very much and it was a great base to visit other places inc Melaka -Langkawi and Singapore. Hopefully one day we will return
