Day 1 — Manila to KL
Arrival at Kuala Lumpur
We have a morning flight from Philippine Airlines.
By the way, if you take Philippine Airlines your arrival airport will be KLIA but if you take Cebu Pac your arrival airport will be in LCCT.
From KLIA straight ahead going to the train (free fare) that connects to Immigration. Just look for the sign Immigration at the top.
After Immigration and Baggage take elevator going to Level 1 for KLIA Ekspress (35MYR)
Standard Single Trip: Adult MYR35 Child MYR15
Standard Return Trip: Adult MYR70 Child MYR30
KLIA Ekspress is a non stop train to KL Sentral station is in Platform A
From KL Sentral straight ahead to KL Monorail
KL Monorail is located in another building. Straight ahead and at the far north of KL Sentral go downstairs, go left and follow the coverd walk. Cross the street amd straight ahead again where you will find the KL Monorail the first station is KL sentral from there we go straight to Medan Tuanku station ( 2.50 MYR )where our Prescott Hotel Located.
I would suggest book hotel that is near any MRT or LRT station so it is easy to find and easy access to where you wanna go.
After we checked in at the Hotel, we had our mini city tour (on our own tour) and mall tours.
Trip going to SG
TIP:We bought our Bus Ticket going to SG a night before as they advised that it is always sold out especially during Holidays or Weekends
TIP: Look for a bus that you think that is good for you. Here is the site for all the buses
Look for their To and From Destination that is near to your Hotel so you wont find Hard to look for them.
From KL Sentral MRT train to TBS Station (Terminal Bersepadu Selatan)
TBS Station to Singapore Woodlands
but before going to SG Woodlands there are 2 Immigration stopover (one for MY and one for SG)
Our Bus was Konsortium Bas Ekspress. for 45MYR
TIP: Bus only wait for about 30 min i guess and if your not back within the timeframe you need to take another bus going to you destination. So be sure youre on time. Trip to SG usually takes 6-7 hours from KL Sentral to SG Central so be sure to take the trip either very early morning or evening.
During our Immigration Process at SG my friend was advised to have a little conversation with the Immigration Officer,
we were worried coz of that, During their conversation he was assked what he will be doing in SG, how much money he have etc. I’m thinking the reason for that is to avoid illigal immigrants since my friend was a first timer in another country.
I have waitied for about 30 min and when we go outside the Immigration office our Bus is already gone. So be sure to move quickly.
Outside the Immigration office there are buses going to the city, Our first plan is to go Woodlands MRT and since we were left behind we took a bus that will go to the nearest MRT station and that is Kranji station.
Kranji station – Dhoby Ghaut station – City Hall Station – Aljunied Station
We have a little stop over at one of the malls in Dhoby Ghaut station
Our Hotel was in Hotel 81 Gold nearest MRT is Aljunied Station.
We arrived at our Hotel at around 5pm take a little rest and at night we go to Bugis station for some shopping and dinner.
TIP: Buy The Singapore Tourist Pass is the only pass that offers tourists unlimited rides on Singapore’s public transport system which includes the MRT, LRT and basic bus services. This excludes Express, Fast Forward, Night Rider, Night Owl and other premium and niche bus services. The Pass also comes bundled with exclusive merchant offerings especially packaged for tourists.

TIP: for cheap shopping Bugis is the place as wel as cheap but good and tasty foods.

When we we’re at SG we just had our city tour around at the place we only knew, so nothing much we just want to experience Singapore
We woke up late at around 10am. We headed to Harbour Front MRT station for our Side Trip to Batam Indonesia
In Harbour Front MRT station there is mall that connects to the port of SG. There are hourly trips going to Batam.

Back to Kuala Lumpur
We woke up at around 9am and we still dont have a ticket for the Bus going back to MY.
We go straight to Golden Mile Complex to book a ticket. Fortunately we got to have our 10 am trip going to MY
Golden Mile Complex is just a one Bus ride from our Hotel.
Again 2 stop overs with Immigration.
TIP: Please be advised that your stomach is full because some bus company dont have stop over so be sure that you still have the energy after all the travels.
We reached KL at around 5pm because of the traffic. Imbi Monorail Station was the last stop of the Bus.
After we checked in take a little rest then back to shopping malls to stroll.
City Tour and Last Hour Shopping in KL
Our last day was the only day where have the chance to discover about Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Tower
TIP: If you want to inside and take a trip inside the building you need to be there as early as 6:00 to line up for a FREE access to go inside. BUT if you will be going late never go at around 10 11 12 noon because its so hot if you just want to take a picture. And the Lighting is very bad. I would say you can go by the afternoon to have a beautiful pics
National Mosque Masjid Negara
TIP: The is a schedule to go inside the Mosque for Non-Muslims, since I have a friend who is a Muslim, i get a chance to inside. Please be advisded that taking pictures is not allowed inside the Mosque
We got back at around 2pm and our flight will be 1am in the next day. So we decided to extend our Hotel for 6 hours because we need to take a rest and we paid 100MYR. and for an hour we just had our rest at the lobby.
At around 7pm we decide to start to go to the airport.
By the way, if you take Philippine Airlines your departure airport will be KLIA but if you take Cebu Pac your departure airport will be in LCCT.
So on our return flight our ticket was for Cebu Pac.We had our dinner at KL Sentral. and we took again KLIA Ekspress for only 28 min to KLIA. Fastest transport to KLIA. but if you’re not in a hurry, there are buses waiting outside the KL Sentral.
From KLIA downstairs there are buses that will take to you to LCCT. LCCT is 30 min (approx depends on traffic) away from KLIA.
From LCCT we wait until the check in time for Cebu Pac and wait for our flight back to Manila
Print a copy of the MRT map of MY and SG for quick access so you dont have to ask.
Wear comfortable clothes coz there will be a lot of walking.
Wear a sling bag so it is easy access to all your needs and put it one place. (tickets, money, foods, etc)
Please be advised that you can
They say that 3pm to 5 pm (or in the afternoon) is where the traffic comes in KL. so be aware of your schedule.
If you still have plenty of time you take this – http://www.myhoponhopoff.com/ to tour around KL. please be advised to start the tour in the morning coz there are so many traffics in the afternoon
Hotel 81 GOLD
What I like about this Hotel.
– Fast Internet
– Good for Budget Traveller in Singapore
it was on sale that time that’s why we have this Hotel.
– Nice Room ( although our room is small but its ok)
– We dont put the ” Fix Our Room” sign but when we get back it was already fixed
bedsheets, garbages and all
– Near in 7/11
– Near Laundry Shop ( do it yourself laundry )
– Quite Surroundings
– If you are a Chinese you’ll love this Hotel. A lot of chinese foods outside.
– One ride bus to Golden Mile Complex
Departure Point of Buses going to Kuala Lumpur and other parts of Malaysia
What I don’t Like.
– Far from Aljuined MRT Station
They say that it is near but its not.
At First Its very hard to go to this Hotel. Hard to find.
But anyway u’ll get used to it. You need to walk long and cross two streets I think.
Before going to this Hotel from MRT.
– Receptionist was very busy always. But anyway they will attend to your needs asap.
The Hotel was fine. Near at the Medan Tuanku Monorail Station. Just 500 or more walks away from the station. We have a nice room. Fast internet The Receptionist was helpful even the Manager on duty. There is a convinient store nearby and Indian food nearby the Hotel. If you walk at the back street of the Hotel there are Stores and Maju Junction Mall The surroundings was very Quiet which is good within the Hotel
What I dont like. — Far from KL Sentral. Connecting to Monorail and MRT is like around 100 or more walks The Hotel dont provide toothbrush and toothpaste. We extend our length of stay but when we came back we can’t open our room need to go downstairs again to advice that we’re extending. And our way to check out we need a break from a tiring day and
What i really dont like — we have a packed lunch, while we we’re eating, we we’re advised that we can’t EAT in their Mini Resto maybe because we didnt buy from them. No choice but to move out from where we sitting and eat somewhere.
