Once we arrived at Kuala Lumpur airport it was really easy to then find a bus to take us to Chinatown where our hostel was. It was a little more difficult to find the hostel though once we were off the bus and we spent about a hour wandering around Chinatown which was interesting but we couldn't wait to drop off our bags.
