Kuala Lumpur International Airport

Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is located at the top of the southern corridor of Peninsular Malaysia, bordering the states of Selangor and Negeri Sembilan. It is situated in the Sepang district, approximately 50 km from the capital city, Kuala Lumpur.

The Main Terminal Building area was designed using the concept of 'Airport in the forest, forest in the airport', in which it is surrounded by green space. This was done with the co-operation of the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia. An entire section of rain forest was transplanted from the jungle and placed in the Satellite Building.

For a lived-in environment, the 80-room Airside Transit Hotel is located in the Satellite Building itself and provides a perfect respite for the travel-weary transit passengers. In addition, a 441-room 5-star hotel, The Pan Pacific Hotel Kuala Lumpur International Airport, is only a 5-minute walking distance from the airport terminal building for well-heeled travellers to unwind in style and luxury.

Since its inauguration in year 1998, KLIA has won numerous awards from international organisations such as Skytrax and International Air Transport Association. With its continuous effort to provide excellent services to passengers, the airport has emerged as one of the top five airports in the world. KLIA's commitment to promote environment responsibility for all local and foreign travellers was recognised by Green Globe, making it the first and only airport in the world to receive Green Globe 21 certificate in year 2004 and onwards. KLIA was thrice voted as the World's Best Airport (15-25 million passengers per annum) in the 2005 AETRA awards, 2006 ACI-ASQ awards and 2007 ACI-ASQ awards.

Adapted from: KLIA Many had went to KLIA before and some may not have the chance yet. The purpose of this post is to make a coverage of the tenants in KLIA with pictures of individual tenants which cannot be found in the KLIA website. Actually, I just fill up my time by taking photos around while waiting for the flight.

Departure hall

Check in counters

I guessed this is a new structure. It serves as information booth on the history and facts of KLIA since its construction till now.

I don't really interested in seeing the information but the right pic grabbed my attention. It shows a picture of the then Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir who was the person responsible in construction of KLIA replacing the Subang Airport. Without him, we will not have this high technology built airport.


At here, the police will be stationed and check your passport and flight ticket.

Auto machine to check in

Never thought the is a locker service.

The great discovery is the Eden at KLIA.

How much will it cost to eat here? Hmm

It is located facing this window with the forest view.
