We’ve got a family stopover on our way to Thailand this year! Can you recommend a restaurant and reasonably priced hotel?
Great price, and an hour flight from singapore, Kuala Lumpur to singapore only around £40 each way to make it a twin city centre holiday.
Penang looks good value, Holiday Inn or Hilton, both by the beach for around £40 per night

If you're looking for an overnight hotel at the airport then Sama Sama is very good (part of the airport complex, good standard and not expensive).

If you are looking for accommodation in town I normally stay near Petronis towers (either Fraser Place or Concorde hotel)

From your experience what is the weather (rainfall in particular) like in KL and Langkawi in early November? Thanks
One of the best places i’ve ever visited, unbelievably good. This is the airline i travelled with and have to say it’s one of the worst; totally inedible food(vegetarian), family not allocated seats together and inattentive attendants.

In Malaysia, Grab is the main private car company. Download the app before you go. Don't know about visa as I have A Malaysian passport. For transfers, Grab is the main private car hire company and you can book rides and pay in cash.
Out of those dates when’s the best time to go

British nationals don’t need a visa to visit Malaysia. You will normally be given permission to stay for 3 months on arrival. Visas for longer stays or for non-tourist purposes must be obtained from the nearest Malaysian diplomatic mission before you travel.
Haven't use Travel up before. Is it reliable?
Anything around this price for Jan - Feb this year?

The kuala Lumpur journal hotel is where I always stay, around £50 a night. Great location and lovely infinity pool on roof. Tried others but this is always the best.
We’re staying at Stripes in KL. I hear it’s really good. Anyone stayed there!?
In Langkawi we’re staying at Meritus Pelangi...

Stripes is not close to the city centre and there's nothing much around the hotel even in terms of eateries. That area is largely small businesses. I'd suggest staying closer to the golden triangle. Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel is a popular choice that sits just outside the Golden Triangle shopping area but still provides easier access to the Petronas Twin Towers. You can even opt for Ascott or Traders hotel. Largely, you want to stay as close as possible to the major shopping centres in KL like Pavillion, Lot 10, KLCC, or Berjaya Times Square, or in Petaling Jaya like One Utama (which also has a light rail station about 500m - 1km from it) or The Curve. Alternatively, you can also target to stay close to a monorail or LRT station now that transport links have improved quite dramatically over the past 5 years.

Many of the major shopping centres operate regular shuttle bus services between a LRT station and the mall.

Lot 10 has excellent food options because several years ago, they collated the top hawker stalls in KL and brought the food into the lower ground food court. So, some of the best food in town (or at least, almost as good as from the original stalls) are now in a convenient location in Lot 10.

The traffic jams in Kuala Lumpur are quite magnificent - as in nearly standstill traffic at peak hours.

The main mode of private car hire is Grab (They overtook Uber and from memory, they absorbed Uber into their operations there a few years back)

I'm slightly less familiar with specific hotels in Langkawi - Try to aim to stay on the southern portion. The northern part of the island is more high class (read: expensive). At langkawi, indulge in ultra cheap duty free beer and chocolates. Also, the street food, especially ikan bakar (grilled stingray fish) is great almost everywhere. Several eateries also allow you to choose the fish you want. Crab and other seafood are all really fresh in Langkawi.

Hope this helps a bit

Hmm thinking Traders hotel might be the best option close to the city centre. It's a business traveller-type hotel but is also popular with locals for short stays. You're REALLY spoilt for choice with food. All depends on your level of adventure. As I suggested above, the food court area at the Lower Ground level of Lot 10 shopping mall is a comfortable place - and probably the best option for non-Malaysian travellers who get uncomfortable about the general lack of sanitation for Malaysia's street food.

We have one main rule for food - the dirtier the place, the better the food will taste That philosophy won't work so well in the UK

Wow, thanks for that detailed review! 👌
This is cheap.

I have stay at KL for 4 months previously. Visited Penang/Langawi/Tawau & singapore in that time. Malaysia is hot, nice people and cheap food.

Visited this restaurant a few times, forgot the name, eat as much as u like and pay as much or little as u like - founded by an Indian guy.

I think that is the one.
