Kuala Lumpur Itinerary: How We Spent 2 Days 3 Nights

Two days were too short to explore the wonderful attractions in Kuala Lumpur, but we were still able to make the most of our getaway with our carefully drafted Kuala Lumpur itinerary.

2D3N Kuala Lumpur itinerary:

Day 1: July 26, 2014 (Saturday)

3:40 PM: Departure from Cebu
Our AirAsia flight was delayed by almost an hour due to the late arrival of our aircraft. We were supposed to depart at 2:45 PM but it was moved to 3:40 PM.

8:00 PM: Arrival at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2)
We walked around 2-3 minutes from the arrival area to the immigration section. Whip out your important documents like passport and airline tickets before queuing at the immigration. KL immigration is fast and efficient. They won’t require you to fill-out an arrival form because they’ll just scan your passport and ola, you’re in!

We took the KLIA Transit from KLIA2 to Sunway Putra Hotel. There are a number of interchange stations so saving this railway map will come in handy:

We arrived at our hotel at around 10 PM so it was already too late to stroll around the city. We had dinner at the nearby KFC and called it a day.

    Hi Michelle,

    We were not very keen on the total amount spent on this trip but I think our pocket money was only Php 13,000 (both persons) exclusive of our air fare and hotel. We stayed in a luxury hotel: Sunway Putra Hotel, so this is not really a budget-friendly trip. You don’t have to worry because you can save a lot on the cost of accommodation as KL has many budget inns and hostels. 🙂
