It was a very long travel day getting from Koh Phangan in Thailand to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. We decided that in order for you guys to really understand a typical travel day for Goats On The Road, we should make a video. Check it out!

We spent 4 days shopping, eating and walking around markets in one of our favourite cities, Kuala Lumpur. We love coming back here and always have a great time.

We took the monorail from downtown area to the bus station, then a bus to the airport. We flew out of Kuala Lumpur on a typical (and maddening) Air Asia flight that departed at 5:30am. Since we needed to be at the airport 3 hours before the flight, we just decided to sleep in the airport, again. I guess that’s why the flights we always take are on ‘promo’, no one else will buy them because of the departure time! We went to the airport, made ourselves a nice little bed on the floor, and went to sleep around midnight.

At 12:30 an announcement came on that they were going to spray the airport with a “toxic spray” so everyone must leave. Are you kidding me? I bet they do this like once every 2 years or something. We left the airport, sat outside, got no sleep and were allowed back in at 3:30am (hoping that 3 hours was enough time for the toxins to clear out) and were just in time for check-in. We managed to get a 1/2 hour of sleep after the security check, but that was it. The flight was fine, we slept for a bit and arrived at the Clark Airport about 4 hours later. Clark is outside of the Capital City of Manila (where we wanted to be) so we took a one hour bus ride to our desired destination…another downside of the promo flight!

  1. Great info!
    Can you please let me know from where did you buy the joint ticket from Phangan to Kuala Lumpur.

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Hey Ivan,

    There are ticket offices/tour agencies all over Koh Phangan where you can buy a joint ticket. I don’t remember the name of the office we used, but it was down by Haad Rin beach.

    Enjoy!
