So in my life update from this recent post, I said that I’m not sure what my next plans are. See, I genuinely do like Kuala Lumpur a lot. I really have fallen in love with it purely as a city. But at the same time, I’m also not sure if this is where I belong anymore.
And while the idea of truly solo travel scares me a little still, there are so many other places in the area that I haven’t been to yet and I really should see them while I’m still here. Because once I leave the area… who knows when and if I’ll come back??
I have really enjoyed settling down somewhere and having a home base. One of the main attractions of KL (besides the food, the boy, and the easy way of life… ummm not particularly in that order) is that KL is SUCH a great travel hub. First of all, it’s a major SEA hub and flights are insanely affordable. And secondly, it only takes a few hours to get to anywhere in Southeast Asia.
Malaysian Budget Airlines
I’m a HUGE fan of the Malaysian budget airlines. Flights are almost ridiculously cheap (I’ll show you in bit). So I think this is a great opportunity to use my remaining time here to go explore other places.
Here are some of your options for budget flights in Malaysia:
– Air Asia: Has a huge network of flights that go to almost anywhere within 6-7 hours of flying. Now, this is just about as budget as you can get. There is no seat-back entertainment or even a USB plug to charge your phone. And a checked bag can cost an extra $30 (so only carry-on for me!) It’s super basic, but I really appreciate Air Asia and their cheap flights.
