Our final day in KL, why does the time pass so quickly when on holiday! A window table once again at breakfast and the final opportunity to savour one of the Berjaya’s delicious omelettes cooked to order.
We then packed our suitcases and checked out of our hotel. The Berjaya Times Square hotel was an excellent choice, obliging staff always with a smile, doing their utmost to please and a huge suite (57 sq m). Our only criticism was the television. It is unbelievable that the Berjaya has not upgraded its televisions. The CRT model resembled a museum piece! The pool area was delightful, kept clean and tidy, plenty of sunbeds and parasols and a large swimming pool with fountains. Adjoining the pool are two spas, one of which we booked treatments in earlier in the week. This was a haven of tranquility and good value.
Our final journey on the crowded monorail from Imbi station was to KL Sentral from where we took an express coach back to the airport (RM10). As our flight wasn’t departing until 20.50 pm we took the free shuttle bus to the nearby Mitsui Outlet Park which is only a ten minute drive away. This shopping mall has only been open for three months, it’s convenient for travellers as there is a complimentary concierge service by the entrance, allowing us to spend some time looking round without our suitcases.
We had visited this mall earlier in the week and bought several items so today’s visit was more a case of window shopping and eating! The waffles we’d sampled on our previous visit were so good that we felt duty bound to return for more. Mine were topped with the delectable Kaya jam (coconut).
We returned to the airport just as the check in desks were opening. Lengthy queues had already formed at the Qatar Airways desk but as we had already checked in on line we were able to avoid this queue and join one with only one family queuing in front of us.
After security we planned to stretch our legs on the Jungle Boardwalk which stays open until 7.00 pm each evening. As it was only 6.30 pm we thought we would have half an hour on the boardwalk but sadly it had been closed as it was raining. Something to do next time we are here, then!
We had to make do with walking round the terminal building instead and passing some time in Burger King until our gate opened.
