However, still you want to sources to get entertain then head to KL, believe me itís a great cityÖ

it is only 6 hours, this is considered normal transit time especially when you travel with kids.

Default child in transit

Hi
my 15 year old daughter is gonna be in transit alone in KL for 7 hours. Iīve only ever experienced european airports before - is the transit lounge in KL a safe place for an unaccompanied minor to be? Any reccommendations or advice where she could kill the time and not be hassled? Where might she be able to get an affordable (teenage budget!) snack? Think we can probably rule out airport shopping (again, teenage budget!)
thanks

Default a lot of questions :-)

I'm new here, so first of all, hello everyone!!

I will be transiting in KLIA in December for 6 hours, and I was wondering if it was possible to get out of the airport to quickly visit friends in KL: is it permitted? AndÖ is there enough time?

I know thereís a shuttle but canít remember how much time it takes from KLIA to KL and back.

Furthermore, I'm French and will be travelling with a Vietnamese friend. Do you know if we need visas to transit? And to enter Malaysia?

Thanks in advance to anyone who will answer any of these questions

KLIA airport is amazing. It's totally safe to be there while transiting.

I think it's permitted, if it is. You could catch the ERL train that would quickly take you to the Sentral station. From there you could pretty much go to anywhere within KL. Pretty nice and convenient.

There are lots of duty free shops available there so you can keep browsing around the area to search for some cheap goodies..

Like above we have an early hours stop over - all I would like to know - is it worth booking a transit lounge or can I get a coffee and something to eat in the main airport terminal?
