Review: Capsule by Container Hotel KLIA2

As visiting all 10 ASEAN country members by the time I hit 30 is on my to-do-list, in the past few years I genuinely take the advantage of low-cost carrier in the South East Asia to achieve my traveling goal.

I mean, I’m at that point where it gets somehow dilemmatic as using low-cost carrier means that I have to spend some time for transit in either Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, but then using a full-service airline to fly within ASEAN could be really expensive. But well.

Given the fact that I’m in the love-and-hate relationship with Singapore, I honestly prefer to spend my transit time in Kuala Lumpur as the price there is relatively standard as per Indonesian pocket.
