Driving Tips (9)

Get the right pump!

Hopefully this one won't fool you - it came very close to getting me! Unlike in the UK, where petrol comes from green pumps and diesel from black and yellow, the opposite is true here. Diesel is green, petrol (RON 95) yellow and black.

Driving in KL on weekend and public holiday

Driving in KL on weekdays and weekend is a totally different experience. I prefer to avoid the traffic jam so I normally come to KL after weekdays. I ever experience traffic jam in KL sitting in a taxi. I did drive tail to tail in high speed on Federal Highway because to keep following the leading car in front, if not, the distance in front of me soon be taken by other vehicles and I am left far behind. Driving in KL on weekend and public holidays, occupying the taxi and bus lane is not an offend. On some road, there are Zebra Crossing Lines for pedestrians.

Kuala Lumpur by Private Car

If you need a private driver with a large car to take up to 6 people then I highly recommend Patrick. The day trip down to Melaka with Patrick was wonderful and he took good care of us, showing us the sights. We hired him again to take us to the airport for Pulau Tioman and again to pick us up and drive us to the international airport.

Update 2013 - On our recent trip we looked up Patrick again and spent a few days with him visiting Melaka again, Crab Island and the Fireflies and Monkeys again. When Patrick picked us up at KLIA, he brought me a nice bunch of red roses :o) What a lovely gift! Thanks my friend! Next time we come, I will bring you a couple of bottles of the best Margaret River Red Wine. :o)

I totally recommend that you have Patrick drive you around. He can be contacted on the email address below. Please tell him that aussirose Ann from Perth said to say hello :o)

Drink & Drive Driver Service?

I won't give any assurance on this as I have not tried it myself. Came upon their site while searching for info on safer public transportation for tourist. What I think I can do is, I'll contact them AFTER I have built up my KL site and show them, tell them about VT and hope they can make us a VT deal maybe.

Self-drive to Kuala Lumpur

If you own a car, why not try taking a short drive up north to Kuala Lumpur. It takes about three to five hours depending on the speed you are driving.

You will need to pay SGD1.20 at the Singapore custom counter using your cashcard and cash, RM2.60 at Malaysia custom counter if you are taking the Woodlands causeway.

There is a short toll of RM2.10 before you reach the first toll. Take the ticket and continue your drive to Kuala Lumpur. The toll charge for private car from Johor Bahru to Kuala Lumpur is RM41.30

Van to KL Tower

There's a free shuttle ride to Menara Tower. Just go to the main gate of the tower at Jalan Puncak. The gate is about 10-minute walk from the Bukit Nanas Station via the KL Monorail. The shuttle ride is available from 9am to 6pm at 15-minute intervals. Scheduled shuttle transfers are also available from major hotels to the tower.

Driving to KL from the south (Singapore or JB)

Feel like indulging in creamy, mouth watering, delicious Baskin Robbins ice-cream while driving along the North South Highway to KL?

Take the Air Keruh exit, you will find a standalone Baskin Robbins outlet.

Take note that it's the AIR KERUH exit and NOT the one with the 'Jejantas' (restaurant bridge across the highway). The AIR KERUH exit is just before the Jejantas exit so if you see the Jejantas exit, then you've already overshot.

However, on the way back from KL to Singapore/JB, the Baskin Robbins outlet is at the Jejantas exit.

Don't You Dare Drive In K Lumpur !

It's better for the traveller to take public transport like buses and taxis, even though your own car would be time-saving and more convenient.

The other well-seasoned drivers might give you a fright !

And if you happen to be in one of those infamous "floods" you'd surely be in trouble.
