Senai International Airport (JHB), Johor Bahru, Malaysia

Back at Senai International Airport (JHB) waiting for a flight over to Kuching in East Malaysia. For this trip I’m flying AirAsia and this was a first as not only did I print the boarding pass, but also printed the baggage tag. At the airport you scan your pre-printed boarding pass, you attach the bag […]

Stuck in KLIA2 Departure Hall, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Stuck in KLIA2 Departure Hall for 7 hours due to missing my connection. Luckily I’ve managed to get on a later flight. This is the first flight I have ever missed, and this ‘miss’ was caused by “Philip” in immigration who was processing arrivals at half the rate of his colleagues, and I of course […]

Yangon (Rangoon) International Airport (RGN), Yangon, Myanmar (Burma)

Back at Yangon International Airport (RGN) for a flight to KL. Bags scanned before checkin, and I am unable to check them to my final destination. That is going to make the connection at KL very tight as I need to collect bags and then check back in. 5:30 am is not a good time […]

Mandalay International Airport (MDL), Myanmar (Burma)

Mandalay International Airport (MDL) is…. Interesting. Very small airport with the check-in gates located post security, that is, you go pass the “passengers only” sign, have your luggage screened, and then check-in. Once checked in, you go through immigration and into the departure terminal, which had a few shops and a couple of cafes. To […]

Mandalay International Airport (MDL) and the drive to Mandalay

Mandalay International Airport (MDL) is small, very small, however, that didn’t stop me from being mobbed by taxi drivers as soon as I left baggage claim. The trip from the airport to the hotel took around 35 minutes and cost 12,000 kyat (US$12; £8). The drive was kind of interesting…. For a start they drive […]

Plaza Premium Lounge at KLIA2

I finally got into my nap room at the Plaza Premium Lounge last night after a 20-minute delay due to the staff being unable to locate my reservation, even after I showed them an email confirming it. In fact, they never did find my reservation and I had to produce a credit card to secure […]

Sibu Airport (SBW), Sarawak, Malaysia

By on March 13, 2015 in Malaysia with 0 Comments

This is the second time I’ve been to Sibu… My last visit was in April 2014. One significant change I noticed at the airport was that they have moved the car rental kiosks from inside the arrivals area to the main part of the airport building. This makes sense to me as last time I […]

On the road again – Johor Bahru Airport (JHB; Senia) to Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia

Off on a trip to Sibu, Sarawak, Malaysia. The first problem of the trip – Air Asia has changed over to some sort of weird double check-in thing at the airport. I’ve already checked in online and now there is another check-in thing at the airport where you have to check-in and print your luggage […]
