PHOTO: National Mosque of Malaysia (Masjid Negara) in Kuala Lumpur

I was hot, tired, and sweaty after a day of exploring the Colonial Walk along the Gombak River in central Kuala Lumpur. I could have hopped on the Metro, but the city’s historic Railway Station, with its lacy onion domes and turrets, was on the way to my hotel, so I set off on foot. The main road I was following, Jalan Kinabalu, suddenly became flooded with hundreds of men walking in the opposite direction. I dodged and wove through the oncoming masses, wondering what on earth was... The post PH...

Bees Swarming an Airport is Normal, Maggots and Rats Not As Much

AirAsia operates out of terminal 2 in Kuala Lumpur. And AirAsia's CEO is none too impressed with the facility. He shared his thoughts on twitter, creating quite a buzz. Well run airports have procedures in place to handle this, and airline CEOs don't need to take to twitter to have the issue addressed.

There’s More to Kuala Lumpur than Petronas Towers and Shopping

Kuala Lumpur, capital of the Southeast Asian country of Malaysia, has always been a “pass-through” destination for me. Either I never made it out of the airport during long layovers, or my time was limited to an overnight stay. I’d made the obligatory trek to see famous twin Petronas Towers, once the tallest skyscrapers in the world, and walk around the lovely lake and park at the foot of the towers. I’d had dinner in the Brickyards neighborhood more commonly known as Little India. And I’d spent...

Matador staff's favorite trips 2018

The Matador staff is based all around the world, which means we’re a well-traveled bunch. In 2018, team members went across the globe — sometimes for fun, sometimes for work, and sometimes for a mix of both. We explored the polar-bear-filled north and surfed the coast of Spain. Some of us went to cities; others took on the great outdoors. Some of us got to know our own backyards a little better. All of us took along our one piece of gear we can’t travel without.

How Much Does it Cost to Travel in Brunei?

Brunei has a reputation for being expensive for travellers. In some respects it is. When you compare the cost of travel in Brunei to somewhere like Vietnam, it is a little pricer. You’ll pay more for accommodation in Brunei, and won’t be cruising by on just $15 a day. In spite of that, I was surprised by how affordable Brunei was. Just like in Vietnam, you can grab a meal for as little as $1, and a bus ride in Bandar Seri Begawan is 80 cents per journey. There are plenty of free activities and a...

How to get from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur by train

Getting the train from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur used to be a straight-forward affair. The train would leave from Tanjong Pagar railway station (near downtown Singapore), clear immigration for both countries at Woodlands, and then continue on the same train to Kuala Lumpur. I did this journey in 2009 and it was a great way to travel overland. In 2011 the service from Tanjong Pagar was discontinued and the train service then began at Woodlands, near the Singapore-Malaysia border. The railway co...
