    I'm from KL, now temporarily (for almost a year already) posted in Singapore. I will go back to catch the tournament as well. As usual I plan to take a coach on Friday night back to KL and then on Sun, take a night sleeper train back to Singapore.

    Whilst in Msia here's some friendly advice for first-timers :

    1) Always travel in groups

    2) Visit only places designated safe

    3) Dont trust anyone, esp handsone strangers looking like Ants offering you a lift, there are quite a few serial killers still on the loose, like everywhere else.

    4) Dont swing your handbags , rattle your jewellery, or show off your latest hand-phones, there are quite a few desperados on bikes that go round mugging people who are not alert.

    So far few tourists have complained, these are not racists , they are just ordinary criminals of any color,
    but just dont be an unlicky one, play safe and you'll be safe.

    Dear all,

    Personally I would do this if I were coming to KL to watch badminton.

    Accomodation:
    As I am not sure if there are any reasonably good hotels near the badminton hall, I would stay at the Concorde. You can book through this website which is quite cheap (http://www.holidaycity.com/concorde-kl/map.html). Staying at the Concorde would also mean that you are close to Bukit Bintang area where you can do some shopping and eating, this hotel is also located beside Hard Rock Cafe. Of course, don't forget about badminton...hehe. Try out the spa and massage facilities in the hotel, 4 stars and above are usually quite good.

    Transportation:
    There is a monorail station just 0.5KM from the hotel - I think it is called Bukit Nanas or something like that. I have provided here a map of the integrated rail link (http://www.monorail.com.my/network.gif), expand this map by placing your mouse over it if you are using netscape. As you can see, you will need to change at Hang Tuah station for Cheras. The only problem is that I am not sure how near the station is to KLBA. I will ask one of my friends who lives in Cheras about this, watch this space.
    Another option is to take a cab. The hotel will be able to arrange this for you (ask the concierge for help, they are usually very good). Perhaps for a little extra, the cab will return to pick you up when you are done from KLBA. Of course, if you find the driver to be trustworthy, you can always arrange with him to fetch you to/from the stadium everyday, remember to get his cell phone. Also, remember to ask concierge for Taxi hotline numbers.


    In my opinion, if you are coming to KL, you might as well kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Enjoy yourselves a little bit apart from the badminton. We work ourselves to death everyday, we deserve to spoil ourselves occasionally. KL is a wonderful place to have a short break (or to live), and it is not as unsafe as perceived. In fact, it is one of the safest and cleanest cities in the region. I have lived in KL for so many years, and I have never encountered any problems. Of course, you have to be careful with your things, but aren't you no matter where you are?
