I am not sure whether the previous question I typed got transmitted properly.
What I want to know is the best way to come to Mid Valley Mega Mall from KLIA Terminal M.
We will be on transit for about 8 Hours from 13.45 Hrs till 21.50 Hrs on the same day on our way to Melbourne. We have Tourist Visas to enter KL.
Take the KLIA express to Sentral, and then the local train to the mall. A 3 min walk fro the station.
At present they are still building the rail link . I personally would catch a taxi . The fare from KLIA is set , I think about $120 ringgit but I am not sure . The shops open at about 11 am
Travel time without traffic jam is 1 hour from Airport to Midvalley. You can travel by taxi or by train or bus. The easiest is by taxi. One other way is talk the KLIA transit to Bandar Tasik Salatan then take a taxi to Midvalley.
Another option is to use the smartphone app GRAB. It is similar to Uber but it has fixed rates unlike Uber's flex billing that adjusts to real-time demands.
The cost will be that of a taxi, but the car will be cleaner. You may get someone who chats or someone who is quite but that is the same possibility with a taxi.
Using public transit is an option but you will be going it alone and no one will be there to point the way. With GRAB you will be picked up at the airport and dropped off at the mall. By the way, you do realize the mall closes at 10pm so with your arrival time, time required to get thru customs and the travel time the mall will be closed.
Traveling to Mid-Valley is okay based on your arrival time by train or taxi, but a return by taxi is a risk, due to traffic.
KLIA - Sentral and back looks better.
Lots of things to see and do, around Sentral and good transport links if you have a change of plans.
KLIA express train to Sentral will take about 30 mins, cost RM55. Once you get to Sentral, you can go to taxi counter and buy taxi coupon to Mid Valley which is only a few km away and cost about RM18. Of course you can also take local train from Sentral instead of taxi. This method will not take you more than an hour in total no matter the traffic condition, so great choice if your timing is during peak hour traffic. You can book the KLIA ticket online and sometimes there are promotion
Another option, you can take airport taxi from KLIA. Just go to airport limo counter, tell them you want to go to Mid Valley & make sure you tell them it is budget taxi and it should cost RM74.50 one way. Please note this taxi can only fit 4 Pax. It will take about an hour to get there in normal traffic, but do not take this option during peak hour. I have never try for return by this budget taxi way, but you can always ask the same taxi driver to pick you up from the Mall. Be sure to ask for return price which is usually higher, about RM90.
