A Brief History
If for nothing else, booking flights to Kuala Lumpur just to learn about its extensive history will be worth it. The city, sitting between the Gombak and the Klang rivers, began as a settlement for the tin industry and grew exponentially until it was impacted by natural disasters and disease. The population shrunk and in order to protect themselves from further fires and floods, the people began to build stone houses and railway tracks which helped to develop the area significantly. The city became the capital of the ‘Federated Malay States’ and attracted a mixture of people with many different backgrounds and cultures. The city was divided into different districts for people of different cultures to live. Under British colonisation, more roads, railroads and other colonial infrastructure were built across the city. During World War II, the country was attacked, prompting an uprising from the population against the colonial oppression and achieving independence in 1957 and its own government in 1972. The city has since industrialised rapidly and been transformed into a city of diversity with a rich history. To experience this metropolis, book your flights to Kuala Lumpur as soon as possible!

So if you’re looking to book flights to Kuala Lumpur that coincide with one of the city’s events or holidays, you will need to snap up your tickets to Kuala Lumpur as soon as possible to avoid missing out on the best airfares and accommodation. Tickets to Kuala Lumpur can see you land in the city at a time where any number of religious or cultural festivals are taking place. Time your Kuala Lumpur travel with Chinese New Year celebrations, which begin on the first day of the lunar calendar and feature colourful paper lanterns, firecrackers and fireworks, plus many dances and acrobatics performances. You can also enjoy the traditional Hindu festival of Thaipusam, which is traditionally celebrated by the Tamil and Malayali communities on the full moon at the beginning of the calendar year, in the Tamil Month of ‘Thai’. This is often a popular time to visit the Batu Caves, where temples and Tamil shrines have been carved into a limestone hill.

Public Transport and How to Get Around
Booking your cheap flights to Kuala Lumpur is even better when you know how to navigate transportation once you arrive. Tickets to Kuala Lumpur will land you in a city with a comprehensive road system, supported by an extensive range of public transport networks. It is easy to travel throughout the city thanks to options include Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), Light Metro (LRT), Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), monorail, commuter rail, an airport rail link, and Uber. The city also has one of the longest automated driverless metro systems in the world - the Kelana Jaya Line. Remember to plan your travel about traffic peak hours - later afternoon and early mornings. Having a Plan B or allowing for extra travel time can be handy when contending with KL’s notorious traffic. Tickets to Kuala Lumpur can be purchased for arrival at one of two main airports. Both operate in Sepang and are located roughly 35 km from the centre of the city. Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is Malaysia’s primary international airport, and Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA2) is the world's largest airport and the point of departure for various airlines, including Malaysia’s Air Asia. As both of the airports are situated outside of the main city centre, you are still about to catch a form of public transport that will drop you off at KL Sentral. KL Sentral is the transport hub in Kuala Lumpur as well as being the integration point of the rail-based network that runs throughout the city.

If you’ve booked your return flights to Kuala Lumpur and are nervous about a language barrier, don’t worry as many of the locals speak English. In addition, most of the main tourist sites will be labelled in English and many restaurants also have English menus. You will need to remember that Kuala Lumpur is conservative in certain areas and so you will be required to cover your hair and wear longer and more modest clothing, particularly in places of worship.
