      Hi, we are travelling from London to Sydney with a 5 hour stopover in Kuala Lumpar airport. We are arriving in and departing from terminal M and would like to go into a lounge. Does anyone know which lounges are in terminal m as i know there is also the satellite building? We are flying economy with Malaysian airlines and would preferably like lounges with showers. Can anyone also recommend if they are worth it?

      Peaceful walk 18 Nov @ KL, around Malaysia and the world

      Kuala Lumpur Nov 16, 2016 at 7:41 PM

      This Saturday, many Malaysians will be practising their constitutional rights to have a peaceful dem called BERSIH (Bersih is a Malay word for Clean and the color is yellow). There are a few objectives of the campaign, google it!

      Thus, visitors can choose to support or avoid. Major parts of KL the focal point will be closed to traffic (motorists). Thus for tourists, use the trains as main modes of transport. Trains will continue to operate, unsure about public buses. This is the 5th outing and the authorities are much better at handling the crowd. There are always those who maybe secular and oppose (those wearing red) and they are making threats. Hope the authorities control them because they are threatening to use violence. A scare tactic.

      There's no real reason to be particularly apprehensive about. Just be patient in getting from one place to another, bring some snacks/food, drinking water, umbrella (in case rain or too sunny) and if you are 'stuck' somewhere. Some eateries and shops may be closed for business as business may not be good with everyone concentrating on the rally and prevent shoplifting or looting as some may take advantage. I am unsure about touristic places but the Twin Towers KLCC mall should be open. Chinatown, Brickfields may be mostly closed as it is prime area. If you take a train to Petaling Jaya city, 30 mins train ride from KL, you can go to Amcorp Mall, Paradigm Mall (feeder bus from Kelana Jaya LRT station), One Utama (no direct adjacent train station) and Subang Parade are all Malls with quite nearby train station. Prepare that you may need to 'take it easy' on Saturday especially...many businesses maybe closed.

      You could get on the train and enjoy the sights from the train and atmosphere. Or just hand around the hotel area. Check with your reception desk any latest advice and check the news.

      There maybe some provocation to create trouble by some minorities parties, to create sensation and fear, the message is to stay calm and walk away. This is a non-political peaceful demonstration by Malaysians. Some politicians have taken advantage of it. Using other channels like writing to our leaders, trying to bring it up to Parliament and many others have not been successful.

      Cheers!

      KL to Bukit merah Laketown

      by damianpeter Online Now Oct 24, 2012 at 7:08 PM

      I would like to travel from KL to Bukit Merah Laketown in early December (family of 4) to arrive as early as possible on the day. If we catch the early ETS train from KL
      (6.30am) to Ipoh, can we then get a bus to Taiping, then taxi to Laketown?
      Is the train station far from the bus station in Ipoh?
      Is it easy to get a taxi in Taiping and what would be the approximate cost to Laketown? Thankyou.

      I love Taiping. Visit the place pretty often to rewind from city life. The lakes, food and people are fantastic. Shopping is ok. I've seen many hair saloons and would like to try one out- any recommendations? A reliable place with skilled staff and original Loreal products? Thanks
