{MALAYSIA} Visiting Kuala Terengganu

Kuala Terengganu (KT) is Shirl's hometown. It is the capital city of the state of Terengganu in Malaysia. It is famous for its exotic islands and beaches that line its 225km coastline on the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia


Arriving and Getting Around in KT
The airport you'd arrive in KT would be the Sultan Mahmud Airport. It's a 45 min plane ride to here from Kuala Lumpur via KLIA or LCCT (see here for more info about KL and its airports). Once you get to KT, it is another half hour drive to downtown. You should be able to buy tickets for cabs from within the airport. Locals in KT speak english, malay, mandarin, hokkien and cantonese. Unless you know how to speak Malay (aka Bahasa Melayu), it is unlikely that you'd get a good price by bargaining with the cab drivers. Buying the fixed priced tickets from within the airport is your best choice.


{MALAYSIA} Visiting Muar

Our upcoming wedding will be held in Jeremy's hometown, Muar. It is a small town located in the state of Johor. It used to be a fishing town and is popular for its chinese food and a local delicacy called Otak-Otak.


Arriving and Getting Around Muar
There are no airports in Muar. The best way to get to Muar is by ground transportation. If you are headed to Muar from Kuala Lumpur, you should consider getting a bus from Pudu Raya. Good buses you can try are Transnational and Mayang Sari. Here's a good blog post about getting to Muar from airports via ground transportation.


{MALAYSIA} Visiting Kuala Lumpur

We get these questions a lot from friends who are visiting Malaysia... where should we stay? what should we do? what should we eat? Here are some of our suggestions.


LANGUAGE, MONEY, TIPPING
Kuala Lumpur a.k.a. KL is the capital city of Malaysia. Most people in Malaysia speak English, Malay, Mandarin and Cantonese. As long as you can speak one of the above languages, you'll be fine.

Credit cards are widely used in shopping malls. However, you'll need to have cash for cabs, mamak stalls and smaller stores. So make sure you carry some cash with you. If you didn't exchange money before arriving to Malaysia, you can always get cash from ATM machines.
