Hello and good afternoon! So on this post I would like to share a bit about klia2 (yes it's klia2 not KLIA2) which about to open in 9th May 2014. Yesterday was the Open Day and everyone was invited to have a tour at klia2 and have a look around it, from the terminal to departure hall to arrival hall to gateaway and EVERYWHERE in klia2.
Excuse the ugliness of me in the photo above but just want to point out that I was at the 'gateaway' that is the shopping mall. Yes. I read in a news article saying that klia2 concept is shopping mall in an airport, or something like that. So, basically there are 3 Starbucks, huge Vincci, F.O.S, Gloria Jeans Coffee, The Loaf, Chatime and many more I can't remember. There are too many shops you don't want to come late if you have a flight. You'll stuck at the shops and lost your flight if you didn't come earlier.

The full tour yesterday has 11 checkpoints but I only found 5 out of 11 checkpoints. Probably because we were too busy taking pictures of the airport. Well, there was a 'Selfie Contest' and everyone was excited taking their selfies with the boarding pass.

I would say that klia2 is hella big and you must lalu the shops before you can enter the terminal. It's a strategy to let you buy something before you fly. And the carpark, the nearest carpark to the terminal is near the DCA tower.
