beware of some taxi drivers who like to take advantage on foreign tourists.



Transnational is the most famous bus company in Malaysia. If you like to
save your money by traveling with bus I think this company will provide the
best service to you. You can plan your journey by clicking the link below. It
provides you with information about the routes and bus schedule. The fare is
according to the destination. It usually doesn’t take more than rm50 (17usd).
Very suitable if you want to go a near town. For long journey I recommend
you to travel using flight as the price just 10usd different than the bus. You
will save a lot of time.

                             Cheap Flight

There are two giant companies in Malaysia. The good news that they are
competing each other so we as the customer will pay less and less each time
they make their offers. So why don’t you grab this opportunity to travel
around Malaysia using them. Below are the two giant companies in
Malaysia Airlines Industry.

                     Malaysia Airlines (MAS)

             You may buy their ticket online just click this link

They are now making new promotion called Firefly (low cost flight
ticket).You can buy the ticket online as low as RM50-RM300 according to
your destination. I highly recommend you to choose Fire Fly because
although the price is higher than Air Asia, they don’t have any hidden
charges. As a tourist I’m sure that you will have a heavy luggage. So you do
not want Air Asia overcharging you. Besides your journey will be much
comfortable than Air Asia. Trust me I have flown with both airlines. They
also has beautiful stewardess!!!Just joking.

   The First Place That You Will Step on in Malaysia



                               By Train

Erl Line

The high-speed KLIA Ekspres (ERL) links the airport directly with the KL
Sentral transportation hub in Kuala Lumpur in 28mins. Trains run from 5
a.m to 12 Midnight. There is train every 15 minutes between 5 a.m and 9
a.m, and between 4 p.m and 10 p.m.While trains run every 20mins outside
those hours. The cost of a one-way ticket is RM35. There is no discount on
return tickets

                       By Airport Limousines

Limousines and budget taxis are allowed to pick up passengers at the airport.
You may buy coupons from Airport Limo counters just before you exit the
international arrivals gate, or just outside the domestic arrivals gate. Ask for
a budget taxi, which is perfectly fine and costs a fixed RM67.40 to get to
Kuala Lumpur; otherwise you'll be given a misnamed "Limousine" that
costs an extra RM87.40.

                                   By Bus

   Airport Coach runs half hourly express buses between KL Sentral and
   KLIA starting from 5am to 12 midnight. RM10 one way

               Look This Airport Achievement!!!

                                 Air Asia

If you are a low budget I traveler recommend you to fly with this airlines but
make sure that you book early. You will pay the lowest price as low as
0.99cent. An unbelievable fare but you have to book early. But they have
limit on your luggage weight. Please note that Air Asia have a different
terminal as of MAS away from KLIA .Don’t be confused.

Check their website for more information


           How to Get to LCCT ( Air Asia Airport)

                                 By Train

There are no direct train connections to the LCCT (although the government
has agreed to build one). However, you can take ERL train from KL Sentral
to the KLIA, then catch the shuttle bus to the LCCT.

                                  By Bus

SkyBus runs direct services every half hour or so from KL Sentral to the
LCCT. RM9 one-way.

Aerobus also runs direct bus services every half hour from KL Sentral to
the LCCT. RM 9 one-way, free return journey.

                                    By Taxi

   Any taxi can bring passengers to the LCCT, including Kuala Lumpur's
   metered red-and-white taxis, although you will find it very difficult to get
   drivers to use the meters. Make sure you agree on a price before getting
   into the taxi. Fares should be between RM60 and RM90.

                     Expressway in Malaysia

Malaysia. This is so important for you to drive from town to town

If you are from Kuala Lumpur this state is quite a distance for you. Please
note that there are two different types of bus route. First the bus will stop at
Butterworth which is outside Penang Island. So you will have to take a ferry
to the island. The other one will directly stop on the island. Please ask your
bus operator where does the bus stop

driving is the best way to get here. But if you still like to drive please take

to pay for the toll.
