MALAYSIA: Hopping around Kuala Lumpur

2011 Holy Week SEA Trip

Before you start your journey, it’s a must that you have a city map and the hotel’s calling card with you.  Just in case you get lost, take a cab and show the calling card to the driver. You can always ask the hotel's reception for these.

As we walked around Bukit Bintang, we looked for a money changer first to change a few dollars since the ringgit we had was used to pay for the hotel.  I decided to just change 100USD only since I still have some ringgit left. By the way, finding a money changer is not a problem in Bukit Bintang since there were several in the area.

MALAYSIA: Bintang Warisan Hotel

2011 Holy Week SEA Trip

Finally we arrived past 3 in the morning at the hotel.  Bintang Warisan Hotel is located in the heart of Golden Triangle, the shopping and entertainment paradise of Jalan Bukit Bintang district of Kuala Lumpur.  The street was still alive when we got there; there are some stores and restaurants open.

68 Jalan Bukit Bintang,
55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Tel. No.: 6 03 2148 8111
Fax No.: 6 03 2148 2333

For me, budget and location are the biggest factors in choosing my accommodation.  But,  Tripadvisor's review helped me to decide on this hotel. I made an online reservation in their website.  Although, they didn't ask for any fee, they do need your credit card details just in case you cancel your reservation.  There is no penalty if cancellation is made 72 hours prior to check-in date.  Otherwise, the cost of one night shall be charged on the card for each room reserved.  We paid the hotel in full upon checking in, but you still have a choice if you want to pay in full or only for the first night.

MALAYSIA: Truly Asia

Malaysia is located near the equator and divided between two regions which is the Peninsular Malaysia and the East Malaysia being the 66th largest country by 
total land area in the world.  Malaysia is the only country with territory on both the Asian mainland and the Malay Archipelago and Tanjung Piai, located in the southern state of Johor, is the southernmost tip of continental Asia. The 43rd most populated country with a population of about 27.5 million.  Malaysia is a federal constitutional elective monarchy in South East Asia. The system of government is closely modelled on that of the Westminster parliamentary system, a legacy of British colonial rule.   Source: wikipedia
