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.

On the last day hotel power supply outage was there and we had to be without electricity for about 5 hours in the midnight. Really bad experience. Trip was ok, points were ok city tour could have been more.

    Prasun's 5 days trip to Kuala Lumpur

    I am quite happy with the trips and all around management of the same. Most of the things were good with few exceptions and that might be because of some lack of knowledge from my side or their side but still overall experience is good. Anjali - with whom we planned our trip was nice, coordinating and humble throughout the trip and even at onsite destination she was regularly in touch. Malaysia local tourist agency was also very professional and supportive. Pick-up, drop, local guiding, behavior, in all spheres they maintained their decency. So on gathering all the points on the scale of 10, I will give them 7.5. Langkawi hotel , Bella Vista, its sea side view and location in the city with all around facilities including Indian restaurant nearby for food gives us good experience there.
