The package "Showcase KL" were launched by the Federal Territories and Urban Well-being Minister Datuk Raja Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin recently. The package included a KLIA Express train journey and a "KL Hop On Hop Off" bus tour of Kuala Lumpur.

Visitors can have a closer look at tourists spots of their choice along the route of the KL Hop on Hop off bus tour. This is a great way of boosting the tourism industry in the country.

Where can you get the package offer?
At the Visit KL Counter at the KLIA satellite building between 6am and 10pm daily, including on public holidays.

The cost of the package:

18-year-old and above: RM95

International transit passengers interested to try the package will have to  undergo Immigration screening before leaving KLIA and upon rejoining their flight.

Sound interesting but I prefer rapidKL bus with just Rm2.00 we also can hop on hop in within the route as long as you don't lost the ticket.
I hope Kuching City will introduce the package too?

I was on a budget tour of Asia last month and booked into one of the cheap Kuala Lumpur hotels. To explore KL, I took the Hop On Hop Off bus tour, it was fun and you could take your time at anything that interests you and hop onto the next bus to the next destination.

Me and my wife are planning a 5 day trip to Malaysia in September and this info about the KL Hop on Hop Off bus was really useful.
