    • Claim baggage if breaking down journey at KUL

      Kuala Lumpur Mar 18, 2015 at 1:46 PM

      Hi all,
      Need a bit of advice here.

      I'm traveling to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore in April. As the tickets were cheap, I booked Malaysia airlines flight 191 which is DEL-KUL-SIN. Since I want to visit KL, I plan to break the journey at KUL and hop off the flight and not take the connecting SIN flight. I do have necessary VISAs for Malaysia and Singapore.

      The anxiety part is, how do I claim my baggage when I land at KUL, as the airlines is same, I presume the baggage will be shifted automatically to the connecting flight. Or am I wrong here?

      Or do I need to inform the ground staff while boarding from DEL that I need to claim my baggage at KUL?

      Kindly guide me on this so I can plan accordingly. I will be with wife and 4 yr old child, so don't want any hassles at the airport.

      Hi Everyone,

      I am travelling with my best friend to Malaysia by mid July 2015. We are going to stay for two weeks there.

      Our plan is as follows:

      - Go to Langkawi Island for 4 days.
      - Go to Penang Island for 4 days.
      - Go to Kuala Lumpur for the rest of the period.

      Please advise top areas & city center name in both Langkwai & Penang. Also the top beach names as we would love to swim in nice beach & to dive as well, also the beach clubs. Thus, we need your help to determine which areas to tackle for our accommodation.

      Also, thanks to advise the city center name in Kuala Lumpur and/or which areas best to stay at. As our target is to stay near shopping areas, places to visit or do & the nice restaurants. We can go to clubbing as well.

      Plus thanks to inform me about the things which can be done in Kuala Lumpur & where to do it.

      Please feel free to advise any other islands (other than Langkwai & Penang) were we can visit & perform in a/b activities.

      Thanks all in advance.

      Alternative destinations to Perhentian

      by poepat Online Now Nov 2, 2010 at 9:52 AM

      Help please we are in a dilema. We are thinking of going to the islands of Perhentian for a few days from KL. Does anyone have any other suggestions of alternative ideas. We land in KL mid April 2011 and have four days to kill (we are already stopping in KL for severqal days earlier in the month so want something different).
      Idealy we are after a little bit of paradise, not completely dead, perhaps a little nightlife but not too hectic and dont mind flying to the destination or train or ferry or nanyother form of transport that can take us to our yet endecided destination. The only thing is that we have only four days in total to arrive at the destination before getting back to KL on the fourth day. Does that make sense.
      Many thanks for your help

      Getting to Penang from East Malaysia

      by Andybeary Online Now Sep 14, 2010 at 5:52 AM

      Some helpful observation i made while in Malaysia

      If your looking to get to Penang from West Coast i.e. Redang etc their are lots of Mini Van taxi's that do this for around 80RM per person.

      Also Premiership football is on most of the smaller islands i.e. perhen and redang so dont threat :P

      Cocohut Chalet was an ok place to stay but the beach next to it was very small and some contruction is on-going... not a great beach but the good news is they have many boat taxi's who take you to all the islands and pick you up for example Turtle Beach or Shark Bay etc (no sharks left) usually for 10RM to 15RM.

      In KL most of the Taxi's charge 15RM to goto most local hotels if metered can be around 10RM but most wont bother because of the traffic so 15RM sounds reasonable.

We wanted to stay at Tuna Bay as we were told it is the best resort in Besar but it is already fully booked, so I don't know which resort to book. I have seen Cocohut chalets and Perhentian Island Resort as alternatives but not sure if PIR is worth the price and if Cocohut will be comfortable. We are not looking for luxury but for a clean and comfortable place with A/C and hot water, near a nice sandy beach suitable for swimm.

      I am also considering the option of staying at Bubu Resort on Kecil, but we would prefer to stay in a chalet ,not in a hotel room. And Kecil will probably be two crowed or noisy.
