  • While both airports are connected and share similar flight facilities, the access between these two airports is slightly restricted. The two airport are equipped with modern facilities and travel services like baggage storage, express hotel, currency exchange counter and eating spots.
  • The airports are well connected to the Kuala Lumpur City Center via KLIA express train and other public transportation methods. It takes only RM55 (14 USD) and a 28 min ride to reach Kuala Lumpur Sentral, the train terminal in city.
  • Coaches and buses can be cheaper at a RM12-15 (3-5 USD) range but could take up to 2.5 hours to arrive in Kuala Lumpur. Limousine and taxi services start at RM60 (15 USD) for Kuala Lumpur area.
  • The taxi tickets have to be brought at counter outside the arrival hall before queuing up out for the car. Both train and coaches’ station are located below the arrival hall while the taxi waiting area is just outside the arrival hall.
  • If you need a quick rest or nap before your flight, you can find some capsule style lodgings inside the terminal 2 building. For a quick bite, head to Food Garden at Level 2 for local delights with breakfast set as low as RM2 (0.50 USD) or savor one of the best halal dim sum in Eden’s in KLIA, where they serve fresh lobster dumplings and cod fish dumplings.

Barcelona Bites & Flavors: Private Food Tour

Tomas is a fantastic guide! We visited the market and tasted a wonderful ham, then had a stroll in the charming allies of the surroundings listening to interesting stories about Picasso and Barcelona, filled with more stops for drinks and snacks. Tomas is a great guy, made me feel comfortable since the first moment and felt like walking around with a friend. Thank you so much Tomas!

A customized trip with Ramesh

Ramesh is a wonderful tour guide picked us up from the airport and took us to hotel evening.
Next day (1) pick us at hotel took us to Malacca to our requested spots and many spots we didn't know about also some wonderful food experiences in out of the way places very local foods. At all times he would be asking if we ok concerned due to the humidity. This was a full day and into the evening. Told us of good place for massage near our hotel and the markets
And restaurants.
Day 2 very wet took us to the Bahu Cave temple, a Chinese temple the hot springs and around the city to the main highlights.
His knowledge of the history of Malaysia is very good his English is very good dropped us at the airport next morning. Having a private tour guide is very good way to see Malaysia.
The cost was very reasonable the experience was wonderful and Ramesh was fantastic.

Dennis gave me the perfect insight of the trendy but still legendary Jordaan neighborhood.

Dennis is very enthusiastic and very friendly, I will definitely recommend him.

Skypark Terminal

  • The third airport that serves Kuala Lumpur is Skypark Terminal Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport. It’s originally an international airport that now only serves domestic flights and regional destinations (Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore) or private flights.
    This airport is located near the city, with only about 20 minute drive to city center. However, this terminal is not connected by trains. The main transport available from it is by taxi or private cars. Taxi to nearest Light Rail Transit cost around RM10-25 (3-6 USD) depending on traffic.
  • One thing to always remember is that the safest and easiest way to travel to and in the city is with a local host as your private driver. They can make sure you arrive to the places you want to go to and also give you insights on the best things to do in Kuala Lumpur.
