How much is a taxi from the airport to Petronas Towers

My flight is at 16;35,23 Jan, flies out the 24 Jan at 23.00

How long does it take to get through customs/immigration ?

Can I get to see the PETRONAS towers and the aviary in this time, plus what else is there to see and do in the time available ?

Any good restaurants, not too expensive, but traditional meals ?

Do I need a visa for the day ?

It takes an hour to get through customs, immigration and luggage pick up usually.

There is a taxi counter at the airport with set prices to KL. It's rm85, coupon system.

At the Petronas towers, there is also the Petrosains science centre, and Aquaria. All in the same location kind of. You speak of an Aviary, do you mean the bird park? If yes there is the butterfly park, botanical gardens and the islamic museum all at the same location or nearby.

At the Petronas towers, there's an attached mall KLCC. Lots of food there. Try Madam Kwans.

Visa? Well yes depending on which passport you carry. And NO for other passports.

Thanks, Do they take credit/debit cards, Aussie $ or UK £

We are coming home from Aus to the UK, this is a stopover for us

I guess it is the bird park, it was listed as the largest covered aviary in the world last time I was there, (how far is that from the petronas towers?)

UK passports, so no visa needed

If you are landing at 16:35, I don't think you have time for the Bird Park, since it closes at 18:00.

You can consider "Songket" in Kampung Baru for your traditional meals for dinner with local cultural dance performance.

Petronas towers to the bird park by cab is approx 10 to 15 minutes.

Yes, I think the taxi counter will take credit cards.
