How does it feel when you guys travel after work? This trip is not in my own country. Hello Malaysia! I will tell you how tense I was before my first visit to Malaysia. I was in Malaysia in 2017 – yes that was a very long time ago, but it will continue in the next story.
When I arrived in Malaysia, it took me 6 months to figure out what vehicles were cheap, what places were worth visiting, what languages were used, I researched all that in those 6 months.
When I bought my ticket for the flight I was super excited. I’ve never done anything like this before. I did everything possible to buy the cheapest ticket. If you do some research you can save a lot of money on tickets. I’ve been lucky to get cheap tickets a lot.
The trip from Jakarta to Malaysia made me a little tired…. and you could also tell by my mood 😛 I hardly got any sleep and took off in Jakarta at 01. 30 o’clock. Unfortunately, I couldn’t sleep on the plane either because it was less comfortable for me. When I arrived in Kuala Lumpur at about 5 am, I went straight into the bus. The ride from KLIA to KL Center took about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The price for the bus ride was about RM 10-11. I took a short nap on the bus. The price for the ticket to Kuala Lumpur was only Rp. 2,377,005 for 3 people, so one person Rp. 792,335 – The hotel was included there. Yes along with the hotel for 4 days (3 nights). But about the hotel, I do not want to tell you more, because we really did not like it there.
I was most looking forward to the breakfast. Unfortunately, I was somewhat disappointed here. But no matter 🙂 The first trip I wanted to make was to the Merdeka Plain. There I wanted to see the Sri Maha Mariamman temples. There we saw something interesting, the Art Market. Unfortunately, I was not quite fit again and so we took a short break. There I rested my feet a bit and my tired body recovered a bit. After that we saw Masjid Jamek Sultan Abdul Samad. Now it was time for lunch at the restaurant Jaya. Here I ate Indian food for the first time – it was super delicious! 🙂 Now we went past the Jamek Sultan Abdul Samad Mosque directly to the Merdeka Plain. Here there is a place with a very popular photo motif – namely the I love KL symbol in the Kuala Lumpur City Gallery. The entrance fee is RM10, but you get RM5 returned if you want. You can also book a tour guide here to tell you some interesting things. A highly recommended place in Kuala Lumpur.
After that, I immediately went to Dataran Merdeka. Actually, there are many places from where you can see and take photos of the Sultan Abdul Samad building. Most tourists, take photos of this iconic building when you go to the independent plains.
