  • There are two main airports for Kuala Lumpur, the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and KLIA 2 (sometimes known as the low cost terminal - LCCT2). The airports are situated about 50km away from the city.
  • 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.

Marion Lucia

Best of Lisbon Tour: Highlights & Hidden Gems

Wir waren mit dem Kreuzfahrtschiff in Lissabon und hatten leider nicht viel Zeit. Wir hatten Lucia für einen Stadtrundgang gebucht.
Lucia bot uns beim ersten schriftlichen Kontakt vorab gleich an, die Tour in umgekehrter Reihenfolge zu machen, da es für uns vom Hafen aus so viel einfacher war.
Sowohl für mich, die vor einigen Jahren schon einmal in Lissabon war als auch für meinen Mann, der zum ersten Mal dort war, war Lucias Führung sehr spannend. Wir erhielten sowohl viele Informationen über die Stadt und deren Geschichte als auch über das tägliche Leben der Portugiesen.
Lucias offene, herzliche und sympatische Art ließen die Zeit wie im Fluge vergehen und wir können nur jedem ans Herz legen, sie bei einem Besuch in Lissabon als Guide auszusuchen. Ihr Deutsch ist übrigens perfekt!
Vielen Dank, liebe Lucia!

Authentic Italian Dinner with Opera Artists

We had a fabulous evening with Fabrizio and Otello. Julia was there to help translate as none of the 5 in our group spoke Italian. Fabrizio and Otello warmly welcomed us into their lovely home, a short taxi ride from our accommodation in the centre. The evening started with a gentle cooking lesson on ragu sauce and chiatarina pasta making, made clear and fun despite the language barrier through Julia’s translations and mime as well as Fabrizio and Otello’s patience with our efforts. We also had a delicious chicken cacciatore and quince tart. This was by far the best meal of our holiday as well as a great experience and we recommend it very highly.

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.
