Free bus routes in Kuala Lumpur earned in December 2013 and they are called GO KL CityBus. Four of the routes (as of 2018), and they have different colors. Them run new and comfortable (air-conditioned) buses that stop at each stop of the city buses are on their routes. Of course, this "freebie" are the locals, so at peak times (weekdays from 7:30 to 10:00 and from 16:30 to 20:00) the buses are going Packed as buses in the good old Soviet times, and most of the passengers were not tourists. However, these buses are still a great alternative to a taxi and paid the city subway. Their advantage is that they cover the areas and sights, to which a metro is not always possible.

The only real problem of the new system to tourists is the lack of complete and reliable information about routes, because the system just started working. Partial information on some of the routes can be found on the free cards, but to understand the move in the names of the stops and where they are, and how hard.

In General, KL is a place where you can ride for a couple days, and that not everyone is interested, most I love the beach on holiday and not big cities. Especially with the kids in KL doing nothing at all. So if the question is to go to Kuala Lumpur or at one of the resorts in Thailand, then definitely Thailand. ...

Really laughed about the fact that there is no place to go. And as the world's largest bird Park, aquarium, butterfly Park, an amusement Park, a trip to the monkeys at the lighthouse, a trip to the Firefly Park, a science center where the aquarium is. Batu caves, the air bridge of the Petronas twin towers and much more. Only in Central Park for half a day to hang out with the kids.
We arrived in Kuala Lumpur with kids 2 times, because I do not have time to enjoy for the first. We from Peter, not from the village, the children toured already all of Europe, but Malaysia is their favorite country. ...

Glad you managed to laugh, but if to look objectively and not with emotions, some of you mentioned places I'd take my kids only to the bird Park, Menara KL tower or Petronas, and Petrosian. And all the rest more loosely, and not all of what you mentioned in Kuala Lumpur. So 1-2 days is possible, and to go on a whole holiday with kids in KL strongly disagree. ...

Also I agree, nothing funny, or just a person with a sense of humor something strange. Stay in a big city with the kids a couple of days later turning into the seat in front of the TV and the tablet, they're hard to pull out, quickly losing interest. Proven many times already, so to go to KL is not an option. As a minimum, you need to combine a visit to KL and the Islands to the beaches were, otherwise, neither the parents nor the children to relax, some whims are. ...

But in Kuala Lumpur great. Met tourists in Indonesia who told them that the city is not liked because he is not walking. It turned out that they just do not stay in the center and on the outskirts near some buildings, and that impression remained. And so it is possible to walk quietly, very pedestrian. ...

Hello Igor!
About the tower we've got all the details painted nowhere - including how to get.
From the towers to get, I passed. IMHO, suggest to the towers after Menard to walk. When they walk, and they get closer and more, I honestly for the first time goosebumps ran. ...

Good afternoon. The same situation in the beginning of March, in Nha Trang. Trying to figure out the budget for 2 adults and child 4 years old, but don't know how much to eat. Plz focus on the average price of food. 30-40 usd per person per day is enough? ...

Generally without problems. If he's not picky with seafood and exotic, and eat like a local, then this sum will suffice on all the day. ...
