Health Tourism and Cheap Flight to Kuala Lumpur

Did you know that Malaysia, besides the majestic twin tower, is also famous for being the go-to place for makeover vacation? Makeover as in you can do anything from general surgery to eye corrective surgery to dental treatment to fertility treatment and the list goes on. They will also arrange your accommodation throughout the treatment and recuperation period to fit your budget.

I first heard about this just before I came to the US but I thought it was just for plastic surgery (like changing from b-cup to dd-cup, :P) and only in Penang. Now you can do everything in Kuala Lumpur and stay at 5 star hotels like the Ritz-Carlton and Sunway Lagoon Resort. So if you're planning of vacationing in Malaysia, you can kill 2 birds with one stone. ;)

And guess whatelse I found out on the net today? The flight from LAX-KUL on MAS is going for USD 768 for the months of Mar-May, USD 938 for Jun, Jul and Dec and USD 843 for Aug-Nov. All with taxes included. Go to for these prices.
No. this is not a paid post. Just doing my bit in promoting Malaysia. :P

OMG! It is so much cheaper to fly from LAX. When you live deeper in (like me), the expenses add up because of all the airports we have to go through.

Currently through Cheaptickets, the average price to fly out from my place is USD1,400. Crazy! Even if I do fly out from LAX, I will still have to pay my way to LAX from here (AEX - Alexandria, Louisiana)- that will add up to about USD1000 or more. The most direct I can find is from AEX-Dallas (DFW) - Seoul (ICN) - KUL.

Thanks for the info. If my schedule is flexible the next time I fly out (and I have a carry-on only, which is really impossible! haha), I may do that. My only concern is my luggage because when I arrange for a package flight, they check my baggage right through to KL.

Have a good week.

Hi Farina

Alamak.. I did not put that sentence right. What I meant to say was if I pay for flights all the way from inland (complete with all the right connections), most of the time, my baggage is checked right through to KL.
I think if I opt to fly to LAX and then get one of the cheap deals from there to KL, I will have to claim baggage in LAX and then check in again.
LAX is always so busy. It is all about conveniences. :)

Hey Farina ... April is around the corner. Your trip up north, jadi??

My heart just sank on reading your inflation post. We are going on a road trip this weekend, some 1100+ miles and diesel is $4.18/gal!! Furthermore, the truck mileage is 18+/-! I suspect my SAH days are numbered. :(

Take care of your eyes, dear.

Rita Ho said...

Psst-psst at Jacqui ... I am with you on the luggage hassle at LAX. I went through it some years ago and it was a nightmare. I had to lug the bags from international to domestic terminals, a route that involved two flight of steps but no porters, lifts or escalators. Facilities may have improved since.

J.T. said...

Hi Farina,

Tumpang lalu ye...


So you know what I am talking about. :)
I love the deals that LAX gets for flights back home but if I have to go through the hassle of lugging bags from domestic to international, I rather check my baggage right through. (I usually end up with broken nails at airports especially when I have to lug bags around ... I wonder why). :)

Thanks Farina.

Ms eNVy said...

Farina said...

J.T, yes chasing the luggages can be very stressful. better to stay overnight and then catch the next flight to kl. ;)

Rita, alamak. now dah cancel the trip up north. the person forgot to register his name so now kena pergi virginia for 3weeks. ur truck only has 18m/gallon? alamak girl, il be praying for u. :P
