MNG 2016: Where to stay near the event?

Berjaya Times Square itself has a hotel of it’s own… Provided you don’t mind paying hundreds for it lah (Last I checked it was RM 291. NGEEEEEE). But still, around the area you can still find some pretty ok deals as well.

First we have Sim Hotel. It’s somewhat cheap but the rooms can be tiny.wp_20161104_13_42_44_pro
88 Inn is on the same row as the entrance. The walk to the entrance is just 5 minutes, literally. (From RM 99 at Booking.com)wp_20161104_13_44_09_pro
The Mercury Hotel is one of the more posh ones that is right behind of Berjaya Times Square.wp_20161104_13_44_41_pro
Classic Inn looks ok to me. So I can’t say much. (From RM 108 at Booking.com)wp_20161104_13_45_12_pro
Irsia Backpackers (FromRM 53 at Agoda) and the UFO capsule hotel (From RM 45 at Expedia). I used to stay in one those capsule hotels and they’re pretty ok. Not for claustrophobic people though.wp_20161104_13_46_03_pro
There’s 2 more hotels to highlight here which is Sindbad Hotel (From RM 66 at Agoda.com) and Orkid Hotel (From RM 64 at Agoda).

There’s a last one called Revopackers. Made for the hipster in mind (plus it’s very clean), if you don’t mind walking a little further to the event area than this is the best option I can think of on the cheap. They start from RM 31 at Agoda.com.

These are the nearest hotels and hostels available that are on the cheap in my opinion. From backpacking to a room at the level of Tune Hotel, these are what I can suggest to you.

Or if you want to splurge, check Airbnb for the Berjaya Times Square Serviced Apartments. Those are the closest, but start at RM200 a night.

If you have more suggestions to tell me or others, please feel free to comment below and share!

MNG 2016: Transport Options to Berjaya Times Square

19th November 2016 is fast approaching (as I type this, there’s 10 days left. NGEEEEE) and I figured that aside from making sure you guys know where it will be at, you should also know the various ways to head to the event. But first, the location!

For those who are familiar, the place for MNG 2016 is the same place where we did the ORAS Launch Party in 2014. If you’ve been there, then that’s easy to find. This is called the Berjaya Times Square Theme Park Entrance (LG).

If you have never been there, it’s easy to find as well. Next to the entrance is a 7-11 shop, and opposite the entrance is a small parking spot near a residential condo/apartment. Heck, you can easily just drop off or park at the parking space to get your game. Then proceed to where else you want to go to. Here’s a Google Map photo of where the entrance is.

And here’s the actual area of the entrance:

How to get there:

By car: Nah, I kasi you Google Map location with latitude and longitude for your GPS. Who knows, tiba tiba the GPS brings you to Manhattan ka.

Webpage link: https://goo.gl/maps/eBa5rdcaiBp
Lattitude and Longitude: 3°08’33.0″N 101°42’37.9″E

By LRT: While our Public Transport system is… well, ok ok, the easiest one that you can identify is by using the Monorail system. All you need to do is drop off at Imbi Station at walk a few floors down to LG. You’ll probably be at the other end of Times Square, so head to the other end.

By Bus: If you’re closer to a bus (I am pretty close to one), then there’s several options under Rapid KL. Here are the bus numbers that you can use to drop off at Berjaya Times Square : 400, 401,450, 452 (if from Kotaraya), 420, 421, 540, 580, 590.

By Taxi or Grabcar/Uber: If your taxi driver or Grabcar/Uber doesn’t know where the hell is Berjaya Times Square, sila cari driver lain. If the driver malas, then lain cerita.

By Papa Mama drive: If they don’t know how to get there, use the GPS coordinates I gave you earlier. hehe.

On the next post, I will explore the available options to show to you guys where it is that you can stay at nearby Berjaya Times Square for cheap. Feel free to share this info!
