Hop-On and Hop-Off

Today is Thaipusam and i wished all my Hindu friends a Happy Thaipusam day. It is a public holiday and Pak Lah is so generous in giving Federal Territory a holiday too.

Bee and me organised a KL city tour with my parents, bro n sis-in law. After having a hearty breakfast at home, all of us got ready. We drove to Kelana Jaya LRT station and parked our car. Bought a one-way ticket to KL Sentral. Once we reached there we waited at the bus-stop where the Hop-in and Hop-off bus will be stopping.

Petaling Street taken from upper deck of the coach.

The double-deck coach came around 11:30am and so begin our journey for city tour. If you have my-kad (for local people), the ticket price is RM19 for adult and RM12 for senior citizen. They will take you to all the major attraction of Kuala Lumpur. There are about 22 stops and they provide an insightful on-board commentary in English. You can hop-on and hop-off as many times at the various tour stops during the validity of the ticket. You can purchase the ticket on the bus. On that day, most of the passengers were westerners. We hop-on and stayed at the upper deck, the view is great from there. Tis comfy and the aircond is full blast so you wouldn't feel warm altho the roof top is clear.

We took the stopp at the Bukit Bintang stop cos papa wanted to go to Berjaya Times Square. It was quite a walk from Lot 10 to Sungai Wang and finally to Times Square. We had our lunch first before jalan-jalan cos we're already so hungry. Papa wanted to have lunch at Johnny's. After lunch, papa treat us Banana Split each couple.

After jalan-jalan Times Square, we took the monorail back to Sungai Wang (a short journey but mama is tired to walk) and catch the coach back to KL Sentral. The coach made a few stops for a few minutes so that tourists can take pictures. We took the chance too, some pics taken at Istana Negara, Eye of Malaysia and Petaling Street. If only we're not too tired, we would have stop

It was just in time. Once we reached KL Sentral we managed to grab tea at 'Warong Kita'. We had teh-tarik with roti-bakar, cucur udang and some cold drinks. After our stomach has been filled, we took the 5pm LRT back to Kelana Jaya station. It was a long day but it was an experience.

I think we have supported and contributed the country's tourism, hehe. For more inquiry, goto
