Kuala Lumpur and often abbreviated as K.L. is the capital and largest city of Malaysia.

The official residence of the Malaysian King, the Istana Negara, is also situated in Kuala Lumpur. The city is also the cultural and economic centre of Malaysia due to its position as the capital as well as being a primate city.

Kuala Lumpur is rated as an alpha world city, and is the only global city in Malaysia, according to the Globalization and World Cities Study Group and Network (GaWC).

Kuala Lumpur is defined within the borders of the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur and is one of three Malaysian Federal Territories. It is an enclave within the state of Selangor, on the central west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Residents of the city are known as KLites.

How to Plan the Perfect Road Trip. If you are on a strict budget, compare costs between countries. For example, the price of petrol in Turkey is significantly higher than its European neighbors. Having said that, eating out is cheaper in Turkey than most European countries.

Plan the road trip around your interests. Not every area has bars and theme parks while hikers and nature lovers will be seriously disappointed to find themselves driving from city to city. There are vast areas in America where there is no life and it is very laid back. This may disappoint the city lovers but delight anyone that loves the open road, landscapes and nature.
It is not about the distance traveled but the sites that you see in between. Spending 90% of your time driving is no fun for anyone and the constant lack of space from everyone being in a car can cause arguments. Plan the attractions and research sites to see before departing. Then mark them all off on a map.

Adults should take turn in driving. This will help each person on the trip to appreciate the views that drivers do not often see. It will also help if one adult want to consume alcohol as drink driving in most countries carries a heavy penalty
Think about your accommodation. Are you happy hiring a camper van or would you prefer the luxuries of a hotel room? Do not forget to factor these into your overall budget

Groups of friends should agree from the start who pays for what. It will cause arguments if one person is buying for the petrol all the time. Ideally, all joint costs such as petrol should be split.
Be flexible. Very often, you will come across sites or hear local tips that do not appear on the internet. Discovering off the beaten tracks are often most of the fun of road trips.

Think about essential items and what can be shared to save on space especially if you are planning on a camping trip. Research the driving rules of the country before departing. Think seriously about your travel partners. If you do not get along with someone in your own time, then chances are the road trip will be miserable.

30% cheaper!!

We were looking for a small cheap car in KL, for just a few days. When Udrive's price was 30% cheaper than their nearest competitor, it seemed too good to be true. We almost didn't book because we thought there must be a catch. We contacted them and were reassured by their customer service person who returned our call within 30 minutes. 

We booked, and crossed our fingers. Everything was fine! The car was provided by Avis and totally clean, reliable and well maintained as you would expect. We are looking at car rental out of London next year and their prices from Heathrow also seem unbelievably cheap (though not from other places in London??)
