Low Cost Trip Around Kuala Lumpur Malaysia


We arrived in Malaysia LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal ) airport around 5:50pm. First thing we did after the immigration is to locate the bus ticket booths. You can buy the tickets going to KL Sentral for RM8 – RM10(107.76php – 134.70 php) depending on the Bus service that you choose. We chose to buy the tickets from Aerobus because they offer round-trip tickets for only RM14 (188.58 php).  The bus was cheap, convenient and comfortable.



The Bus trip is around 45 mins-1 hour from LCCT airport to KL Sentral depending on the traffic. When we arrived in KL Sentral, We went to KFC to eat dinner. The dinner cost us RM 20(269.39 php) for 4 persons.

After Dinner, we took  LRT Kelana Jaya Line (RM1.60/21.55php) to  KL City Centre (KLCC) to visit one of world tallest building, the Petronas Twin Towers.   When we got out of the KLCC  LRT station and look up, we were amazed of the beauty of the Petronas Twin Towers.




We then took the  LRT (Kelana Jaya Line) to Pasar Seni  (RM1.60/21.55php)  to get to Chinatown. Chinatown is just 2 blocks away from Pasar Seni LRT station(5 minute walk). Like most other Chinatown, you can find a lot of souvenir items, watches, shirts and etc. The stores in Chinatown closes at around 11pm. We book a hotel in Sasana Hotel Chinatown which costs us (RM55.01/740.98php) for two persons. The room (no windows) has a bed(double),  TV, bathroom and free wifi. Don’t expect too much because it’s a cheap hotel, but it’s quite comfortable and convenient if you just need somewhere to sleep and for a low cost. I suggest you book online at agoda.com, you can actually look for other hotels there and check which one is good for you.



Our first day costs:  RM49.71 (669.05php) per head which includes the hotel and round trip bus tickets to LCCT Airport.

We woke up around 7am and checked-out of the hotel, It’s very quite early morning in Chinatown but there are food stalls and restaurants open. We ate a meal that cost us RM 5 (67.35 php) per person.





We then walked going to Little India, it’s just a short walk away from Chinatown.

Then walked back to Pasar Seni LRT Station and took the train(Kelana Jaya Line) to KL Sentral. If you are bringing heavy bags/luggage, I suggest you leave it in the self storage lockers that can be found near the Toilet of KL Sentral Station to save time. The storage locker costs: RM5(67.35 php),RM10(134.70 php),RM15(202.05 php) and RM20(269.39 php); We got the RM15 storage locker good for 3 large backpacks and 1 trolley bag.



When we arrived at KL Sentral, we took the KTM Komuter to Batu Caves for RM1(13.47 php).



The KTM Komuter train trip to Batu Cave is around 30 mins and when we got out of the station we saw the statue of a giant Lord Hanuman near Batu Caves.





Batu Caves, the world’s tallest statue of Murugan, a Hindu deity, is located outside the cave.



Beware of monkeys walking around, they tend to steal food and drinks from you!



There are 272 steps to reach the cave. The steps up to the caves were a nice little workout.  It was rewarding to reach the top, it was beautiful and cool inside. No fee was collected but they accept donation. Inside the main cave area are numerous shrines.







We then took the KTM Komuter back to KL Sentral (RM2 /26.94 php).  From KL Sentral we took the KL Monorail to Bukit Bintang  (RM2/26.94php). Note that to get to the Monorail, You need to get out of KL Sentral Station then walk your way to Monorail Station, just follow the signs or ask (it won’t hurt to ask if you get lost).  When we got to Bukit Bintag while walking our way to Berjaya Times Square, we came across alot of yummy street food that cost  RM1(13.44 php) and drinks for RM2(26.87 php).





Berjaya Times Square  is a 48-storey, 203 m (666 ft) twin tower, hotel, condominium, and shopping centre complex. It’s your one-stop, one-shop venue for great shopping, dining and entertainment experience.



We roam around the mall and checked out the Berjaya Times Square Theme Park, formerly Cosmo’s World Theme Park.



Also in the main entrance of the mall we saw the world’s largest capsule vending machine(Guinness World Records).



We ate lunch at the Berjaya Time Square food court which cost us around RM9 which is good for two persons.

We then walked going to Pavillion. We asked around for directions. Pavillion is a short walk from Berjaya Time Square. Pavillion is at the heart of the trendy Bukit Bintang district lies the perfect reason to indulge in fashion, food and urban leisure. Experience the excitement of this 1.37 mil sq ft retail haven with 500 outlets offering the finest fashion and home furnishing to entertainment and culinary delights.



Then we walked back to the Monorail Station and went back to KL sentral (RM2/26.94 php) to get our bags and ride the bus going back to LCCT airport.

Day 2 cost(per person): RM20.75 / 279.28 php

Total Cost= RM 70.46 / 948.32 php per person
