Kuala Lumpur Airport in transit

Hi there,

Need some advice:

We are flying to Melbourne from Europe and are landing in Kuala Lumpur at 8am and leave at 7pm.

Is there much to do at KLIA or should we leave the airport and visit something close by? Any suggestion?

Also if we do leave the Airport, will we need visa's to get out of the airport and will our luggage be kept or do they have locker facilities for luggage?

My sister hates just sitting around and I know 10 hours will drive her insane!

Look forward to hearing any comments or suggestions.

Which airline are you flying with? Is it possible to check in thru to Melbourne?

If so its easier , you do not have to collect your luggage in Klia.

10 hrs is too long to stay transit in airport, more than enough time to do sight seeing in KL

Emirates flies the a380 from dubai to KL. it will be a nice flight. Even better if you are on business class and heavenly in first.

PS the good thing as well will be that you won't have to collect your bags, so within an hour of landing you will ready to leave the airport, and you will need to leave the city 2 hours before you fly out.

If you're a Cyprus passportholder, you won't need a visa for stays of up to 3 months in Malaysia.

Your 7.30pm flight to Dubai would be on A380, which is a very nice ride.

Have a safe trip home.
