While booking our flights to Sydney, we realised that we are having a layover in Kuala Lumpur. We can either look around and pass our time at the airport or we can make it a longer layover by opting for it and can see the city!

Visa Process ?

You require a transit visa to get out of the airport. It takes a week's time and is an easy procedure. You just need to provide your air tickets.

Places that can be visited?

1. KL Bird park - https://www.klbirdpark.com/visitors_info.php?topicID=4
Try to catch the bird show between 12.30 to 3.30 pm
Time spent - 2-3 hours

How to get around ?

Airport to City - Direct train (KLIA express will drop you to KL sentral) and then you can take an uber to your destination

KLCC Suria, Petronas & Aquaria is at the same location.

Bukit Bintang is walking distance from the Petronas. Follow the maps.

Bird park - take uber

City to Airport - Take Monorail upto KL Sentral and then the KLIA Express to reach airport

So, this is how we made the most of a long layover. Also, the KLIA is pretty good. So, spare some time to walk and shop there too!
