    My girlfriend and I are heading to Bali tomorrow for our 3 week Indonesia trip (and are really looking forward to it!). The bad is news is that we have been informed today that the last leg of our journey to Bali has been rebooked on a later flight. We will be arriving at Kuala Lumpur at 17:30 and the next flight to Bali will take off at 04:15. This means a stopover of a little over 10 hours!

    Do you think we will be able to visit the city during our stopover? And if so, what would be the best way to travel in and out of the city? (What time schedule would be wise?)

    We are travelling with Malaysia Airlines and I'm assuming our luggage will be automatically transferred to our next flight.

    Any advise will be more than welcome. If you think it's a bad idea to leave the airport, anyone know of a good book to kill the time..?

    You can take take KLIA Express to Kuala Lumpur Sentral. From there, you can visit Kuala Lumpur Conventional Centre (KLCC), have some drink in Bangsar or going for shopping centres. Hope this helps.

    Kuala Lumpur is a very beautiful kind of place to visit. I have visited the beautiful city in Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur is full with many kind
    of attractive and beautiful natural attractions. I explored the place completely and really enjoyed myself while visiting the place.

    Well. . . there is a late night street in Bukit Bintang, but beer is expensive and you've got to catch a cab around midnight to get back to the airport for that 2 hours early they require (probably 3 hours is fine). That gives you maybe 3-4 hours to wander around Bukit Bintang at night, so if you are into that sort of rush into-out-of the city centre you could take a look. Not sure what I'd do . . . the food in the airport isn't so good, so it'd be nice to see the city. That said, it'll be an expensive little jaunt into the city.

    Sorry if this is not helpful or timely for you.
