    Being a middle-class destination for a holiday, Malaysia is located at the core of Southeast Asia. It is proving to be brimming each year with an abundance of travel hotspots, gourmet cuisines at every block of the country and an atmosphere infused with a unique blend of cultures. It does not stop there! It is of no surprise that Malaysia is one of the most popular destinations among Muslim travellers based on the availability of halal food, convenient access to prayer amenities and wide range of Muslim-friendly hotels and tourist attractions. Malaysia may be a diverse region comprising of a population of approximately 32 million people but they never fail to provide an ultimate `Muslim-friendly vacation` for families who are visiting the country for the first time. Without further ado, let's jump into the top 5 reasons why Malaysia should be your next holiday destination! Read more about Malaysia 1) Easy to find affordable Halal food You would not have completely experienced the whole of the Malaysian lifestyle if you did not try out the local food they have to offer. Their cuisines range from a variety of different cultures - Indian to Malay to Chinese and so on. If you are a fan of spicy food bursting with flavors, you should definitely explore the restaurants in Malaysia. They will leave you in a food coma with zero regrets. There is no shortage when it comes to the availability of restaurants serving Malaysian cultural food. Be sure to bump into carts and huts that are known for reasonable pricing at every street corner. Bukit Bintang is a spot-on example to satisfy your Malaysian cultural food fix with a literal street jam packed with gourmet food shacks serving the typical Malaysian delights like Satay, Nasi Lemak, Teh Tarik etc. You will be assured of the Halal factor of the food, considering that the majority of the population is dominated by Muslims.

The beauty of each mosque differs from each other. One thing you will notice is that each mosque has its unique feature and its own way of portraying Islamic architecture. The mosques portray a variety of intricate designs on their monuments which would make them stand out individually. However, one must be cautious about behaviorism and how they conduct themselves as mosques are sacred places of worship. There are certain etiquettes that each mosque follows and tourists should be mindful of these before visiting to avoid disrespecting the mosque and those worshipping in it. A few of the standard ones would be the removal of shoes before entering the mosque, wearing appropriate clothing and keeping volumes to a minimum. Some of the most unique mosques you can expect to come across would be the following listed below: Malacca Straits Mosque, Malacca (The floating mosque) Location: Jalan Pulau Melaka 8, 75000 MelakaOperating hours: 9AM - 5PMContact number: +60 17-377 0309 Putra Mosque Location: Persiaran Persekutuan, 62502 Putrajaya, Wilayah Persekutuan PutrajayaOperating hours: 9AM-12.30PM, 2-4PM, 5.30-6PM (Sat-Thurs)                                3PM-4PM, 5.30PM-6PM.

  • Getting Around in Kuala Lumpur By Public Transport

    Are you going on a holiday in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia? Then make sure you read our Kuala Lumpur transportation guide prior to your trip! Travelling in Kuala Lumpur can be a breeze these days thanks to its recent development of public transportation, which sees the MRT railway line connecting hard-to-reach places in the city better than ever. If you’re a lone female traveler, issues like safety is always a high priority. Check out these transportation tips and info about Kuala Lumpur public transportation, and how you can best get around town safely as a female traveler on her own:   1.Metered Taxis Picture Credit - If you’ve ever followed the news about traveling in Asia, chances are you’ve probably heard of Malaysia (and specifically Kuala Lumpur) being a notorious destination where its taxi service is one of the worst in the region. Cases like rude taxi drivers refusing to use the meter, or sleazy taxi drivers taking advantage of their passengers are cautionary tales for travelers getting around Kuala Lumpur by taxi. That said, if you’re wondering how to get around in Kuala Lumpur easily, your best option is metered taxis. Avoid rogue cabbies at all cost by getting on a legitimate metered taxi. Here are some tips for getting a safe and metered taxi in the city: Get a ticket or receipt at a taxi counter or operator, where you’re required to state your destination and pay beforehand. Only get on a taxi that has stickers on its passenger doors that read like this: “This is a metered taxi. Haggling is prohibited. Request for your receipt.” Taxis can be the best and fastest option if you’re going somewhere that has no railway stopping point. Depending on your destination when you visit Kuala Lumpur, a journey could cost you between RM5 to RM80 (a long journey that takes 40 minutes or more often costs RM30-RM80). If you can, avoid taking a taxi during rush hour (7am-9am and 5pm-7pm), especially if you’re passing by the Federal Highway, Petaling Jaya, Ampang, or any major cities within Kuala Lumpur with high population.   2. Buses Picture Credit - Considered to be the cheapest transport options in Kuala Lumpur, taking a bus can be the best choice for you if you want to travel by public transport in Malaysia on a budget. Major bus operators in Kuala Lumpur are the Rapid KL, Cityliner, Intrakota, and Metrobus. The best operator to date is the Rapid KL, as it connects the city center with the suburbs of the Klang Valley. If you prefer to get around town by bus, plan your journey in advance and calculate the fares accurately on the MyRapid website.   3. The Klang Valley Integrated Transit System Picture Credit - The number one choice for many city dwellers and travellers in Kuala Lumpur, the Klang Valley Integrated Transit System consists of an airport rail link to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), one bus rapid transit line, one monorail line, two KTM commuter rail lines (along with shuttle services), and two light rapid transit (LRT) lines. The KTM offers women’s coaches, noticeable by its pink color. Check out the Klang Valley Integrated Transit System map for more details and to calculate the fares. These are some of the city’s tourist attractions near major train stations: KTM Kuala Lumpur Station (Port Klang Line): Islamic Arts Museum, National Mosque, Dataran Merdeka, Central Market, and National Museum. KL Monorail Bukit Bintang Station: Pavillion Shopping Mall, Lot 10 Shopping Mall, Fahrenheit 88 Shopping Mall, Bintang Walk, Berjaya Times Square Shopping Mall, and Sungei Wang Shopping Mall. MRT Putrajaya Sentral Station (Sungai Buloh – Serdang – Putrajaya Line): Putra Mosque, Perdana Putra (The Prime Minister’s Office), Putra Square, Natural History Museum, and Putrajaya Wetlands Park. 4. Major transit hubs in Kuala Lumpur Picture Credit - There are different transit hubs for local and intercity travel: Local travel: Bandar Tasik Selatan Station, Masjid Jamek, and KL Sentral. Each of these transit hubs has a train interchange between the ERL Transit and KTM and LRT lines. Intercity travel: If you’d like to travel further out of Kuala Lumpur, head to one of these transit hubs: Duta Bus Terminal, KL Sentral, and Pudu Sentral. If you’re traveling intercity by train or bus, the journey could cost you between RM15 to RM50 per trip. 5. Transportation Passes Picture Credit - Avoid the long queue at the ticket counter and get yourself an all-access transport pass to save time (and money!). For travelers, the most recommended pass is the KL TravelPass, which allows you to explore the city with 2-day unlimited train rides. The travel card includes KLIA Express airport transfer (Single or Return Trips) and 2-day unlimited rides on Rapid KL rail services (LRT, MRT, and KL Monorail lines). You can purchase the card at KLIA Platform (Level 1), Gateway@KLIA2 (Level 2), or KL Sentral Departure Hall (Level 1).
