Hilton Petaling Jaya Exterior

The Hilton Petaling Jaya is located a few kilometers outside of Kuala Lumpur in a rather residential area. While I didn’t love the location, I generally liked the hotel. It’s not the best hotel I’ve ever stayed at, but the value for the money is hard to beat. You can find more content about Kuala Lumpur on our city page! One of my journeys to Asia I had a one-night layover in… Read More

Booking my flights to Australia last summer was rather last-minute and given the relatively low prices, I decided to give Malaysia Airlines a try. As I needed to head back to the UK after my trip to Australia and New Zealand anyways, flying from London was the best possible option. In total I had four flights with Malaysia Airlines: LHR – KUL (night-time): Airbus A380-800; two dinners and a snackbox KUL- SYD (night-time):… Read More
