Kuala Lumpur – First Impressions

Tags : 

Our KLM flight went non-stop from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, departing at 20:50 in the evening and arriving at 15:45 the following afternoon. It was comfortable enough, and cost just €521 for a return ticket.

While still inside the airport, we booked a taxi coupon from one of the booths (RM89), then boarded our taxi. We were headed for the Hotel V Garden in the Jalan Cheras area of the city. It wasn’t easy to find, but with some backtracking our driver finally managed to locate it.

It was already getting dark, and we were keen to wash and get something spicy to eat after the long flight.

The hotel itself was unbeatable value for money, and ticked all the boxes for us (€28 for a double, including breakfast). There were excellent helpful staff, a good room with a really comfortable bed, and a good breakfast.

Great for a short stay in Kuala Lumpur.

The hotel is not central, but just up the same road we found 5 or 6 great local street restaurants with tasty food. Our evening meal for two cost us RM15 (about €3).

The location of the hotel wasn’t an issue for us, since we were heading off early the next morning to catch a coach. We were going to save Kuala Lumpur until the end of our trip, when we were planning to spend 2 more nights there in a more central location.

Our next stops would be on the other side of the Malaysian peninsula, starting with Cherating and then on to Mersing, Tioman and Kuantan.
