5 hrs free in KL ....

Hi all,

Wondering if its worth heading out to see something in KL while we wait for our next flight. We arrive at 8am at the international airport and leave at 3pm from International. ( guessing will have to be at airport a few hrs before depart) How far from the Airport to the city or is there something closer that we can explore???Is it worth it ???

Just seems a pity to sit at a airport ALL day waiting when we could be out doing something.

Any advise would be muchly appreciated

Cheers !!

Jetstar departs and arrives at KLIA.

It will take 30 mins to exit the airport without luggage. You can take the klia express train into KL sentral (30mins) and switch to the LRT train to KLCC. I suppose you should reach there by about 930 or 10.

Hang around, snap a few pictures, have something to eat, do a bit of shopping, and head back by about 12.

This is a usefull thread listed under FAQs right hand side as to what to do in a 8 hour transit. Whilst a few years old it is still very helpful.
