A brief summary on the itinerary
Escape Plan to Kuala Lumpur in November 2013:
Total duration 4D3N
Singapore is on the same time zone as Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Flight time is 1hr direct flight on Airasia from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur.
Saturday noon flight on 2nd Nov and arrival in Kuala Lumpur at 10 mins after 1pm.
This escape plan was triggered by sudden acknowledgement that it was a long weekend (Monday given leave due to Sat being a holiday, by company). There wasn’t anywhere cheaper in terms of flights and accommodation and something that we could do on 3 days and less. More savings made when I converted some Starhub points to BIG points and using the BIG points to offset some costs from the tickets.
The trip consisted mainly of shopping places and food that was eaten – the main objective of the trip anyway.
Budget nature: Affordable if manageable
With a strong SGD against the Ringgit, everything else was less than half the price published, but mostly food and non-branded items were really cheap while others were comparably expensive.
Complexity: DIY possible for the beginners
This is an easy place to navigate with planning and English was spoken in tourist locations. Touring the city with little planning is possible and should be DIY for maximum costs savings and flexibility.
