Travel to Kuala Lumpur

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

The distance from Kuala Lumpur airport to city center is around 55 km and is a one-hour drive. Therefore, reaching Kuala Lumpur from India by air is the best way to get to the city of skyscrapers. There are many flights from some of the renowned airports of the country like Indira Gandhi International Airport, Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, and others which can take the tourists to their destination. From the airport, there are many local transportation options like taxis, buses that take everyone to the main city of Kuala Lumpur. Apart from this, the distance between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur and the distance between Kuala Lumpur to Penang is same, around 350 km; therefore, one can take a flight up to these two cities, and then a bus to Kuala Lumpur.

By Train

There is no railway connectivity from India to Malaysia. However, there are many trains from either Penang or Singapore. The Penang to Kuala Lumpur distance is around 350 km, which is the same distance between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. The trains take around 9 hours to take the travelers from one place to another, and one must travel in them at least once to have an experience of the Malaysian modes of transportation.

By Road

Reaching Kuala Lumpur from Penang by road can be one of the best options for a road trip. The distance between Penang and Kuala Lumpur is about 350 km; therefore, it takes around 7 hours for a person to reach Kuala Lumpur. Another option for a nice road trip is from Singapore. Therefore, one gets to enjoy the scenic beauty and explore some of the other lost cities and villages of Malaysia, which portray the authentic Malaysian culture. Other major attraction in a road trip is the local street food of Malaysia that one gets to taste from different parts of the country.

Thus, this was the answer to the question- how to reach Kuala Lumpur. Based on the budget and the time that a person has to travel and explore the country, one can choose from a wide range of modes of transportation.

    A perfect trip with Ascot Holidays. Although some hicups for the Airport pickups and baby Meals as promised. but it was all resolved by Mr. Akash. (Ascot travel) We had a dream travel with Travel Triangle , Ms Arzoo(Travel Triangle) was also well connected on phone and there was no co-ordination issue from any end. Hotel Rooms were decent, but the hotel services in KL for Hilton garden inn could be much better. Cabs and Tour group has provided a decent services.

    Manish's 7 days trip to Kuala Lumpur

    It was a great experience, nice trip good support provided by the team at both travel triangle and also by SGR Tours and Travels. All the bookings were done well in advance and we received our vouchers before hand, as this was my first trip outside India Shailesh from SGR tours and travels was a great help as he guided me for everything before i board the flight. Our trip included 3 destinations Langkawi, Genting and Kuala Lumpur all destinations accompanied by private transfers. it was fun going to the locations and the drivers there were also very supporting. I am looking for another trip with Travel triangle soon and i would prefer the same provider everytime. I was very worried about my Visa process as it was scheduled do be done later in the stage of booking but Shailesh helped a lot there as well and it was like a cake walk for him. The only thing i disliked about my stay at Genting was the Hotel staff was not at all supporting and the room was not as i thought it would be for which shailesh warned me in advance to not to take a stay at Genting. Apart from that everything was amazing and i would again love to travel with travel Triangle.

    Mohak's 6 days trip to Kuala Lumpur

    We had a great trip to Malaysia. Holiday Matrix gave us a very good deal on our package. Our advisor Mr. Abhinav made all the necessary arrangements and accomodated our requests in the itinerary. He was available whenever required. The tours were well coordinated and all the drivers were nice. The tour operator even postponed our day trip when our internal flight got delayed. Just one thing, the hotel Hilton Garden Inn in Kuala Lumpur was not up to the mark and was no where a 4 star hotel. The tour of Malacca/Melaka was one of the highlights. Most people who go to Malaysia don't cover that but I think they should definitely visit. Its a small historic town which has preserved its ancient architecture and offers a refreshing perspective different from the usual.

The two things which I did not like are: 1)Two cab drivers were very rude. 2) The travel agent told us he is booking a connecting flight but he will include the meal as complimentary. When we boarded the flight we came to know the meal was not included. Also he told us the luggage will go directly to hyderabad but instead we have to collect our luggage ourself in Mumbai and then again check-in Hyderabad
