6 hour layover in Kuala Lumpur KLIA Airport

I have been recently asked if you can dash into town and see the Petronas Towers if you have a 6 hour layover at the KLIA international airport? The answer is yes. How? Read on....

N:B: Just be aware this is different if your layover is at the other KL airport, LCCT!!

If it rains or you are visiting on a Friday afternoon then avoid cabs as there can be some awful traffic jams that would delay you considerably. Better option below:

1.There is a train from the KLIA airport that takes you straight into KL Sentral (spellt that way)
2. From KL Sentral you can take the LRT(metro) to the station called KLCC.
I recommend the LRT over cabs in case there are traffic jams and you do not want to get caught in one of those!!
3. Calculate 1 hour to get into town and 1 hour to get back using the train and LRT.

4. The train ticket to and from the airport should cost you 70 ringit, divide by 3 to get US dollar equivalent.
LRT ticket one way is about 2-3 ringit. 30 minute journey airport to KL Sentral. and 15-20 minutes by LRT to KLCC. In total budget 80 ringit for transport.
5.There is a huge shopping mall beneath the Petronas towers so maybe budget some money and time for browsing around there and taste a few dishes.

Quick and easy giving you some time to see the centre of KL. Enjoy!
