The concierge at Berjaya Times Square (this link is to my blog about the hotel) told me how to get to the closest stop for the Hop-on Hop off bus and off I set for my last day in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – it was a good choice of ‘things to do’. If time is short, this is an ideal way to get an overview; however, if you are time-rich it gives a good idea of where things are and will help you decide on what to do over the next few days – and this is plenty to do in KL – including . . .
- I took a bike ride .. see my blog here
- Horse and Carriage ride
- FREE Dataran Mederka Heritage Guided Tour (Mon, Wed, Sat)
- FREE Little India Walking Guided Tour (Saturday)
But back to the jump on jump off bus. This tour is by double-decker bus and runs on a half-hourly schedule (it would help if bus stops had real-time info as I waited 25 minutes for a bus after dinner – I had obviously just missed one – but you can’t leave the stop for fear of missing the next one 😦 . Still it was good people-watching time!
The good thing about getting off was the first bus was a closed top one, my next one was an open deck top which was good for photos and viewing, (others prefer the air-con I guess!)
Lunch in Little India was great too.
The stop I started/finished at was stop 6 – which was hard to find as its hidden from the footpath by a large restaurant at the side of the road. I asked locals 3 times and then found another couple searching and asking – we joined our search talents and found it. The stop needs moving or a big sign needs to be on the footpath between the food place and the shops.
As I only had the day I only hopped-off for lunch (in Little India) and my fellow passengers seemed a mix of staying on for the full length or were hopping off at favourite spots.
Tickets can be bought on the bus, its website or authorised agents.
I think its best for the pictures to tell the story … so, sit back and relax and spend some time in Kuala Lumpur with me.
