KL (Kuala Lumpur) Trip March 2013 – From LCCT to KL Sentral to Bukit Bintang

4 Comments

This KL Trip is a birthday present for lil boy. He loves travelling to new places so much, and so as far as we can afford it, we will bring him to different kind of places even if it’s not very far from where we live.

As I already wrote in my previous post before about various transportation options to go to KL from Sg, we took the plane on a bright Saturday morning on 16th March 2013. Our choice was Tiger Airways which landed in LCCT (Low Coast Carrier Terminal) in Kuala Lumpur. For your information, Tiger Airways is no longer in Budget Terminal but in Terminal 2 Changi Airport now.

Arriving in LCCT

Finally arrived in LCCT and made various expressions while waiting for daddy at the phone counter

Since it is a low cost terminal, which means a budget terminal, the facilities and the situation are very different than the International Airport. These are my notes about this terminal:

  1. Get down from the plane to the ground by stairs…..but I actually saw a manual elevator that carried passenger with wheel chair from the ground to the plane (what a nice extra service…..).
  2. We had to walk quite far from the plane to the immigration counter. Please read the signs and directions carefully since it was quite mixed up between “arrival and departure and transit passengers”. We got lost twice and had to walk far away to the right direction.
  3. No need to fill any forms for Indonesian passports when entering Malaysia.
  4. Although immigration counter was very crowded and had a very long queue, but to our surprise the process was quick since they opened many counters and worked fast. There were some officers on guard to help you with questions regarding the immigration process.
  5. Baggage handling was also fast, no waiting time for us.
  6. Toilet is clean enough and air conditioning worked well.
  7. There is one (or two) counter selling phone cards before the immigration clearance, but there are many counters outside the immigration counters after baggage claim.
  8. It was quite crowded once we got out from the airport, but still ok for us comparing to Soekarno Hatta Airport.
  9. There are taxi counters and bus counters to the city in the airport before the exit door. The cheapest one will be by bus to go to KL Sentral.

To go to city, we chose to try the Aerobus from LCCT to KL Sentral Station. The ticket counter is on the left side of the airport before the exit door. It costed us 40 ringgit in total (9 ringgit for adult and 4 ringgit for child). For more information including the departure time, you can check on their website: http://www.aerobus.my.

Other option is to take the skybus (by Air Asia although non Air Asia passengers can ride this bus too), and  for the detailed information can be checked at: www.skybus.com.my. For both buses, the tickets can be purchased on site too….just pay before you ride.

The bus was nice with good air conditioning and comfortable seats. I think it was very cheap comparing to the very nice bus condition. As usual, lil boy chose to sit at the back. It took one hour to go from LCCT to KL Sentral. Lil boy was quite tired that he got a little cranky and impatient during the journey.

For other information about LCCT including several options to go to KLIA from LCCT can be seen in this website: http://www.lcct.com.my.

From KL Sentral (it’s a train station) to our hotel in Bukit Bintang, we had to go by monorail. The monorail station is located at different place (not inside the train station).  After we alighted from the bus, we had to walk straight until we got out the train station, follow the street, crossed over to the right, crossed over again, and walk straight again until we reached the monorail station. We bought two ringgits token for each person to go to Bukit Bintang Station in the ticketing counter.

Place this token on the designated place before entering the station and keep it save, insert the token to a small hole once you get out of the station. The machine will swallow the token.

Upon arriving in Bukit Bintang Station, there are several city and train maps that can be taken. Although it would help a lot, our main GPS was still the map from our I phone which was very complete and detail.

Study the city map carefully

And now, we are finally arrived and ready to explore in our 3 days and two night journey (we would like to stay longer but daddy had an important meeting on Tuesday so we had to go home).

Hi there. I'm from Indonesia but now live quite far away from my home country. I love cooking for my family. I learned how to cook for the first time from my mom and I believe that mom's cooking is always the best, and I do hope that my son will feel the same too even though he grows up so fast. I love Indonesian food as I grew up with it, and I promise to myself that my son, although he doesn't live in Indonesia right now, will always like and enjoy authentic Indonesian food. I make this blog so that my family will always remember our togetherness and happy time that we had, are having, and will have when we eat together and have good memories about a mother's love through her dishes. Hopefully these recipes will help other people to make healthy home cooked dishes for their families.

  1. ditunggu cerita2 selanjutnya!🙂
    gua pernah ke KL.. th 1996 yang lalu. gile udah lama banget ya. hahaha

    • Iya nih lagi mengumpulkan semangat buat posting semua ceritanya, hahaha……
      Udah 15 tahun lalu itu berarti ya, iya udah lama banget pastinya udah banyak berubah udah jauh lebih bagus dari foto yang bokap gua tunjukin jaman taun segituan juga kayaknya.

  2. Ci,bisa minta rute selama 3 hari 2 malam di KL jalan ke mana aja,soalnya november ntar mau ke KL n kebetulan dalam rangka ultah anak juga dan nginap di daerah bukit bintang jg,thank’s ya ci🙂.

    • Untuk anak-anak sih paling gak jauh-jauh dari Aquaria di KLCC ataupun KLCC Park. Untuk rute 3 hari 2 malam bisa ikutin itinerary saya sepertinya sih sudah cukup padat untuk anak-anak. Intinya buat saya kalau bawa anak yang penting mereka happy dan menikmati perjalanannya, jadi gak usah terlalu dipaksa juga harus strict to schedule.
