At a loss on what to do, when you have a few hours to kill and are in Kuala Lumpur for a day or two?
Well, take a ride on the Kuala Lumpur (KL) Hop-On and Hop-Off city tour. I like to call it Ho Ho Ho…! (Sounds like Santa Claus's laughter).
This double-decker bus service takes the scenic route around the Kuala Lumpur city centre and passes by 42 main attractions.
It is a great way to see the city in such a limited time. A one day pass entitles you to a 24 hour ride bus service.
Fancy visiting the tallest twin towers in the world? Hop on the bus and make your way to Kuala Lumpur City Centre, at KL HoHostop number 22. Make sure you look out for the colourful logo of the KL HoHo bus service, as this is where the bus will take and drop you off.
Its bus services are pretty regular, so have no fear, you can shop or walk around to your heart’s content! Once you are done shopping, you can always hop right back on the bus.
I would suggest boarding the bus and taking a round the city trip. You can take the bus from your hotel, or start at its first stop, the Malaysia Tourism Centre (MATIC) at Bukit Jalan Ampang.
From here, the bus drives to KL Tower, at Bukit Nanas. It proceeds to several destinations including Bintang Walk, KLCC, Merdeka Square, Lake Gardens and Central Market.
Other attractions of the bus include multi-lingual commentary, wifi service on board, sky view and open deck; disable friendly seats and choices of 24 and 48 hours tickets.
Visitors, tourists and locals can buy the bus tickets for the ride at the bus, at selected travel agents, hotels and 24 hour convenience stores around the city centre. Locals get special rates, too, and it is a good experience for the whole family.
This is certainly a great way to spend a day in Kuala Lumpur, especially if you are in the city centre even only for a while.
So, what are you waiting for? Hop on a ride with the KL HoHo!
