“ A Taxi service with a child seat in KL - our experience ”

08 November 2011, 20:09

As a young family with an 18 month old daughter, we were a bit worried about the taxis around KL, especially the longer trips to and from the airport. We didn't really want to lug around a child seat for our 2 weeks holiday not hire a car with one in and around KL ( but we we did in Langkawi).

After raising a post on TA we finally came across some advice from other travellers, with Paki Sufi's taxi service being recommended.

Paki Sufi offers a genuine taxi service but also with the option of a child car seat! He was quick in replying to emails, and was easy to deal with in arranging taxis to and from LCCT airport.

Our driver on 4 occasions was Radzi and he was excellent, drove carefully and spoke excellent English. We ended up with a premier taxi and it was great - with Radzi waiting for us at the terminal and right on time - if not early - when picking us up from the hotels.

We highly recommend Paki Sufi's services, especially if you are like us and wanted peace of mind of a child seat for your infant or toddler.

Please PM me if you want more details.

Kuala Lumpur of fondly known as KL, is mainly known for its eating and shopping, which are adequately covered by the Eat and Buy sections.

Other activities include usual urban sports such as golfing, cycling, running, jogging and horse riding. If you’re into rock climbing, the Batu Caves in the Northern suburbs is popular. However given Malaysia's stunning terrain, you’re better off heading to other places for anything more strenuous or challenging.

Several good theatres and performance halls have emerged as part of Malaysia's drive to encourage greater cultural expression. These include the National Theatre (Istana Budaya) and the KL Performing Arts Centre (KLPac) in the northern part of the city, the KL Philharmonic in the Twin Towers, and the Actors Studio at Lot 10.

Leading museums in the city centre are the National Museum, which covers the region's history, and the well-regarded Islamic Arts Museum, which houses a small but captivating collection.

Pampering and spas can be found in several five-star hotels and independent centres in the Golden Triangle. There's also nail parlours and beauty salons, which are generally good value, there's also high-end ones offering similar services for a premium. Reflexology and foot massage places are everywhere, especially in Bukit Bintang in the Golden Triangle and in Chinatown.

Kuala Lumpur also has many theme parks around the city and in the surrounding cities. The most famous of these parks is Sunway Lagoon in the neighbouring city of Subang Jaya. The theme park has rides, a huge waterpark, an extreme park for adventure junkies, a scream park for those wanting a good scare, and a petting zoo for children. Sunway Lagoon is a 40 minute drive from central Kuala Lumpur in good traffic and can be reached by bus or taxi. You can also watch the local football match at the KLFA Stadium in Cheras. Kuala Lumpur FA is a football team based in Kuala Lumpur and currently plays in the top divison of football in Malaysia. the Malaysia Super League. Match schedule and fixture can be seen at the KLFA website.

Skyscraper Gazing - glass and steel abound, but only one (rather a pair) shine. However, the view from the KL Tower is cheaper and better than that from the Twin Towers.

Nature

While KL is more of a concrete jungle compared to other parts of the country, there are some natural gems that are accessible by public transport. Among them are: FRIM Forest Reserve: You can get to FRIM via KTM Komuter. Stop at Kepong and grab a short taxi ride. The hikes are easy and you can go up a canopy walkway for RM5 to get a good view of KL on a clear day. There is a nice tea house in the FRIM compound where you can sample various types of local teas and snacks. Get there early as it is more likely to rain later in the day. Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve: Located close to KL Tower, this urban jungle is a good respite from the city heat. The forest provides for an easy trek that you can enjoy on your own; but the many specimens are likely more appreciated through guided tours which are free and can be arranged from KL Tower. Nature Escapes Malaysia is a good website for more details on natural trails located within or a short drive away from KL.

  • KL Bird Park (free-flight walk-in aviary), 920, Jalan Cenderawasih, Taman Tasik Perdana (Next to Islamic Art Museum in the City Centre), +60 3 22721010,. 9AM-6PM. Great semi-wild habitat for many different species of mostly Asian birds. The Bird Park allows you to approach quite close to the birds which are skittish but not fearful for some very nice photos. A bit pricey, but makes for a nice long day in a mostly shaded area. Feedings and shows throughout the day give something to see at any time, and the 20+ acres provide plenty of area to walk and explore. The photo booth offers a wide array of tamed birds that will happily sit on you and pose for photos for a small price (RM8 per person: your camera, 2 birds; RM25 per print: glossy printout of your group covered in birds). Concession stands are priced fairly and offer drinks, ice cream, etc. RM48 (adult), RM38 (child).  edit

Near the KL Convention Centre is the Aquaria KLCC which contains some 5,000 varieties of tropical fish.

“ Recommending a taxi with a baby seat - so rare! ”

Jan 07, 2011, 8:36 PM

My husband, one year old daughter and I just came through KL and I'm very pleased to recommend a taxi driver who has a baby seat. This took some serious research because it's really rare to find a taxi with a baby seat in KL, but we had a really good experience so I thought I would pass on the details for any other concerned parents who would like their child safely buckled in!

Pak Sufi is a warm, friendly man, speaks excellent english and is a safe driver so we felt very confident having him take us to and from the airport. He was also very forgiving when our daughter was ill in his car - he stopped on the side of the road a couple of times for us and was so understanding (he has grandchildren so happily said he was used to it), despite the fact that it must have been quite unpleasant for him!

His rates are very reasonable (it cost us MR 85 each way from the airport to KL centre) and we highly recommend him. Pak Sufi's website is: www.taxi-lcct.com
