Buses - City Shuttle [BANDAR]
RapidKL's newly introduced City Shuttle stage buses should come in handy for tourists. The 15 routes cover most major areas in Kuala Lumpur city centre.
The fare for City Shuttles is RM2 for the whole day. Buy a ticket on your first ride and just flash your ticket at the driver for all subsequent rides. Save for more, just RM7 for unlimited ride on all RapidKL LRT & buses throughout the day. Click here for route map.
All City Shuttle stage buses can be identified by a RED CIRCLE on the windscreen and side window near the front door. They are also numbered from 101 to 115.
City Shuttle stage buses depart from four "hubs", all of them thankfully served by rail transit. They are
[KL Sentral] (Kuala Lumpur's main rail transit station),
[KLCC] (where the Petronas Twin Towers are located),
[Titiwangsa] (at the Pekeliling Bus Terminal)
[Maluri] (adjacent to the Maluri LRT station in an inner suburban area east of the city centre) and
[Medan Pasar] (Main hub, opposite HSBC Building, 50m from Masjid Jamek LRT, for many routes converge at the heart of the city centre.
KL Shopping List
KL shopping guide created by l_joo
I received quite a few emails from first time members regarding where to shop in Muddy Estuary or Kuala Lumpur. Each time I had to type or provide links to websites, so this time I better come out a full shopping list, so that everybody can have an idea how many shopping malls, complexes, centres, bazaars, etc and also a rough location guide by distances. If you ask me what is the best place to shop, I will recommend my top favourite spots, Low Yat Plaza, S&M, Kinokuniya, Pertama Complex and Jalan Pasar. Please feel free to ask me questions and hope you like it. Around city centre

We arrived very late at night.
The Kuala Lumpur airport is very modern and fashionable which transmits a signal that it is an international city.
The night is quiet and peaceful, the only disturbance is the guide who would never stop talking.
We stayed overnight in a hotel called "Hotel Maluri". Couldn't believe it's a 3 star hotel! The only good thing of this hotel is that you can see the twin-tower through the window.
We went out searching for food around 24:00 and ended up in a ragged eating place nearby. To my surprise the food is not bad at all. Actually it's the best food we had for that trip. The price surprised us when time to pay, arond 50rm/person! Our boss paid so it's him who was crying not me. ; P
"Day trip in Kuala Lumpur"
Since it's a company trip we had no choice but used a travel agency. We had a very regular and typical day trip in Kuala Lumpur, jumping from one tourist spot to another and shooting photos just like all the other tourists group do. Nothing really special to talk about.
However I had a very good impression of Kuala Lumpur. It's rather a plant garden than a capital to me. It's green and clean everywhere. I guess it's because I am from Beijing where a captial equels to noise and crowding.
"Islands jumping in Langkawi"
Another typical tourist day trip, they call it "Island Jumping".
What I hate most about a company trip is that you have to get up even ealier than working days!
We spent half an hour swimming in the island name "Shimi" then driven to "Lion Island" looking eagle feeding and fishing our lunch, after this another one hour swimming in "Pregnent woman" Island where the water is limnetic. Somebody enjoyed very much being massaged by fishes which I couldhardly stand. There are many monkeys who are not afraid people at all.
Has anyone stayed here before?
If yes, is it far to Bukit Bintang or other shopping malls.
Re: Seri Cempaka
Never stayed there but I know its location - just opposite the Maluri LRT station, abt 15mins drive to Bukit Bintang. Nearest shopping mall is the Jusco Maluri accross the street.
