We all need to decide what time to go, what things to prepare, what to wear (yes, airport fashion is a thing) and how to get there. Driving to the airport is a thing, but parking rate is so not friendly. There are alternatives that you can choose, such as e-hailing services or public transportations. Are you still unsure on what to do? Here is how to save money (and time) when going to KLIA and KLIA 2:
