Travel to Kuala Lumpur
Seeking help in order to know how to go to Kuala Lumpur? Then, here is our travel guide to let you figure out how to commute to this amazing destination conveniently.
With Kuala Lumpur International Airport being the major airport, which is located at a mere distance of 50 kms from the city, this place is quite accessible for tourists from around the world. Hence, Indian tourists can board flights, like: Air Asia, British Airways, and others to cover the India to Kuala Lumpur distance of around 3841 kms in less than 4 hours.
There are direct flights to Kuala Lumpur from Indian cities such as Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai, etc. Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia and is also the largest city in the country. The place is very well developed and has some of the most beautiful sights to offer to its tourists. One must visit this place to have the best time of their lives. Getting to Malaysia is no big deal as several international airlines offer comfortable flights. The cheap flights help in having this wonderful trip on a small budget.
Let’s get to know how to reach Kuala Lumpur while boarding a flight.
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.
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.
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.

Trip to SingaporeVery good with travel triangle, there entire team supports and prompt reply was excellence. We are on holidays at Singapore and Malaysia , in Malaysia the local travel agent performance is not so good . In Malaysia waiting time for the driver mostly delay about 30 to 40 minutes . Sunway lagoon trip we arrive arrive at location late because of driver came late and while dropping to hotel driver left on time , he did not wait for us for 20 minutes. We took private car to arrive our hotel. But overall experience with travel triangle was very good. In Singapore:- Santosa Island, universal studios, Garden by the bay, little India , City tour, night safari, Bird park, SEA aquarium In Malaysia: - Sunway lagoon , Gantting , snow world,, petronas tower.

Trip to SingaporeI booked my honeymoon package for Singapore and Malaysia from travel triangle ( Kushark Holidays). The travel agent Shalu Shrivastava from Kushark Holidays has done a great job in managing our package in our budget. she was available 24*7 before the tour started and at the time of tour. We didn't face any problem on our whole tour. The Singapore team was also very well co-ordinated and everything was as per schedule and no loop holes . The Dinner was awesome in both cities. I will recommend to others the Tandoori Restaurant for dinner in Singapore & Delhi O’ Delhi Restaurant In Kuala Lumpur. We spent 4 days in Singapore one at Universal Studios, one at Night safari and next day we had a city tour and post lunch at Sentosa Island by cable car we made visits to the beach, Merlion statue and S.E.A. Aquarium and Wings of times as well. Malaysia trip was also good. Trip to Genting highlands was 2way by cable car was awesome and city tour KL Tower And Sunway lagoon were also quite good. I'm very thankful to Shalu Shrivastava and will always recommend to my friends and family to go with Kushark Holidays. Both the destinations are amazing
Trip to MalaysiaHad a real good experience with Travel triangle and Ghumne Chalo. Had my apprehensions in the beginning but it all turned out smooth and planned for our Malaysia trip. If it's Malaysia you are planning, go for Travel triangle and Ghume Chalo. Special mention for Stuti (Ghumne Chalo) and Saloni (Travel triangle) for keeping the process smooth and transparent.

Trip to SingaporeI had visited two places- 1) Singapore- 4N and 2) Malaysia (KualaLumpur)- 3N. A) Singapore What went well: 1) Hotel Location was very good. Very good to Little India (Indian Veg food). Metro Station, ATMs and markets 2) Hotel Staff was supportive and eager to provide required information, cautions. If they don't know something, they tried to find and provide the necessary information. 3) Transportt (Cab and SIC partner) was of good quality. Cab Service for sight seeing was good. 4) The information/suggestions provided by Holiday2Cherish were very useful and worth. 5) I had kept one day free for my own exploration, I explored Metro, Public Transport. It was worth observing the discipline and culture of Singapore. What Can be improved: 1) One of the driver's attitude was very rude. During Pickup at Airport on arrival, we have scheduled pickup on 7 a.m. We have been waiting at the mentioned location since 6:30 a.m. On 7:10 am. when I called Singapore support number, the driver came there and was claiming that he has been waiting since 6. The worst part is he started shouting us in the middle of airport-arrival lobby as if he were our boss. This was very bad experience. As we arrive to the country and you would be receiving this type of welcome. 2) Hotel room was very congested (less spacious). Even though Superior room was given, not enough space to freely roam. Would suggest to go to 3*, as it would help to save extra amount. Not much diff between 3* and 4* hotel (Already informed by Gazal). 3) The earlier check-in was not allowed. (I.e. we reached at 8:30 am at hotel, the check-in time was 3:30) Even after paying extra money, earlier check-in was not allowed. We got the room at 12:30 p.m. that to after so much requested. (Although Gazal had already informed me earlier about this scenario.) 4) Hotels were charging 2 SGD for 600 ml of water on top of 2 complementary bottle. This was very expensive 5) The schedule for pick up was very tight. I.e. for Universal studio, the pick up was of 7 p.m. The place where night shows and attractions were worth watching, at least 2 pick -up option should be provided (I.e. 2nd pick up at 9 p.m.) 6) Some of the key attractions were excluded from package (like singapore Flyer) which should be included in the package, as it was covered during City tour only. B) Malaysia- Kualalumpur What went well: 1) Pick up, drop, info, support from cab transport was good. They were willing to amend the itinerary on prior request. Cab drivers were helpful 2) Hotel room was more spacious than Singapore, but still not that good for 4* rating. 3) Genting Highland was worth visiting place. What Can be improved: 1) No Quality Indian Veg restaurants nearby. Only non-veg food in surrounding area. 2) Surrounding was not much good for pure veg. As, you will smell non-veg food while walking on street. Locality was ok. 3) KL towere Skydeck should be included as a part of package, rather than KLTower- Observation Deck. And it should be during daytime. 4) No need to keep more than 2 days in Kualalumpur. Rather than spend more time in other art of Malaysia- Natural beauty. Malaysia alone can be of 5-7 days trip if you want to plan for natural beauty. Overall, The complete trip was very good (except few mentioned above), with travel agent- Gazal helpful by providing necessary info and suggestions in advance. I need not to contact travel agent while On-trip, as everything was planned and organized. Singapore was very good place to visit, and for Malaysia Natural beauty- I would recommend to plan Only Malaysia- 7 days trip to explore natural beauty.
