I had been planning to visit Malaysia since last year. Finally had a chance to find a time to visit. In addition to Malaysia, I added Singapore to my journey.
Total 9 days: 3 days in Kuala Lumpur, 4 days in Langkawi and 2 days in Singapore.
First of all during planning phase you need some tools and advises to make an on-budget trip. Check your country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises page for your destination countries. For me, it was not advised to visit Sabah territory in Malaysia. Therefore I skipped this region. I used Skyscanner and hipmunk to find a cheap and short-duration flight and booking.com for accommodation.
Why I put Singapore to the last is because its a more, and actually one of the most, developed country and I wished to end my journey with the best.
Here below the summary of our itinerary starting from and ending in Jeddah, KSA.
- From Jeddah to Kuala Lumpur (flight duration is around 8.5 hours) with Saudia Airlines which I DO NOT recommend anybody to use Saudia Airlines. The reason will be detailed in a separate post.
- From Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi (flight duration is 1 hour) with AirAsia. AirAsia is a low-cost airline based in Malaysia.
- From Langkawi to Singapore Changi Airport (flight duration is around 1.5 hour) with AirAsia.
- From Singapore to Jeddah with Saudia Airlines (flight duration is around 8.5 hours).
Flying from the world’s best airport – Singapore Changi Airport – to the worst airport – Jeddah International Airport – was also an unforgettable experience and a shock for me . To sum up, try to avoid any stop in or transfer from Jeddah Airport. This advise will be updated whenever the new terminal will be opened, expected within a year.
