Instead of wasting time while waiting for their
next flight, passengers in transit at Kuala Lumpur International
Airport now have the option of touring some of the city’s most
famous attractions with the introduction of the Showcase KL tour.
For just RM95 per person, passengers who have a
minimum transit time of five hours to spare can take in some of
the sights of Kuala Lumpur on the KL Hop-On Hop-Off (KL HOHO) bus.
The tour allows participants to experience up to 43 attractions in
the city. Depending on the individual’s available time, KL HOHO
staff will be able to provide Showcase KL tour passengers
appropriate advice to ensure that they have plenty of time to
enjoy the tour and catch their connecting flight.
The Showcase KL tour entitles passengers to special
discounts on entrance fees and shopping including Aquaria KLCC,
the KL Bird Park and Kuala Lumpur Tower. In addition, they will
receive a welcome drink and a Tourist Reward card that offers
discounts at over 150 participating stores at the Pavilion Kuala
Lumpur upon the presentation of the Showcase KL badge.
Madam Zaliha Zainuddin, Director of Malaysia
Tourism Promotion Board (Hong Kong Office) said, “Our transit
passengers can now enjoy greater freedom and convenience and make
use of their waiting time with our Showcase KL package. Tourists
from Hong Kong and Macau can now get the most out of Kuala Lumpur
in transit, sampling the gourmet Malaysian food and taking in some
last minute shopping before boarding their connecting flight.”
Once a ticket is purchased, passengers need take
only 10 easy steps clearly outlined in the programme brochure to
experience the innovative tour. Two immigration counters have been
dedicated to quickly process the passengers’ visas for the transit
tour and each will be given a special badge which clearly
identifies them as a tour participant.
After clearing immigration and customs,
passengers can board the KLIA Ekspres high-speed train that will
take them directly to KL Sentral Station. KLIA Ekspres staff will
be on hand to assist tour passengers displaying the Showcase KL
badges. Once at the KL Sentral station, passengers proceed
directly to the KL HOHO stop no.11 located on level 2 or those
needing assistance can visit the KL counter.
