Kuala LumpurLanded in Kuala Lumpur at approx 8:05 Am (KL time). Got refreshed at the KLIA washrooms.(They are super clean and huge!).Collected some free tourist guide maps from the tourist information centre, used free WiFi to talk to mom and inquired about getting to the main city KL Sentral.Since I wasn't carrying any local Malaysian Currency called (Malaysian Ringgit), I had to get it exchanged. Inquired a few currency exchange kiosk at the airport and they quoted me net effective rate of exchange as 1 RM = Rs 18.19. Instead of getting exchanged through kiosk, I used my indian debit card for withdrawal of cash from ATMs at airport and net effective rate of exchange charged by my bank was 1 RM = Rs 16.129 thus saving approx Rs 1000 for RM 500.Took a bus at approx 11:25 Am to KL Sentral (Cost RM 12). KL Sentral is the largest railway station in Malaysia and an intermodal transport hub along with an inbuilt shopping mall. It connects almost all public transport of Malaysia (Metros, Mono rail, Express, Intercity transit, Airport transit, RapidKL buses, GoKL free buses etc)I browsed for some really good hostels from booking.com and filtered down the same to "Submarine Guest House" using free airport WiFi. I took a train from KL Sentral to Pasar Seni
