I presume you're flying with AirAsia into the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT), which is separated from the Main Terminal Building (MTB) where the express train is. There are only bus and taxi at the terminal. The last bus departs at 0115 so pray that there's no delay on your flight and your bags are out fast. If you missed the last bus, there's only taxi left for you. The proper payment system is by fixed-rate coupon, but I'm not sure if the counter is still open at that hour. If it's already closed (which shouldn't be, given the number of flights coming in at that time), you might have to deal with irresponsible taxi drivers charging extortionate fares. My guess is easily over MYR100 for the ride (I was quoted MYR90 four years ago for a past-midnight ride from the MTB) as the rate after midnight is double. If it's too high, you might want to consider sleeping at the airport and take the next morning bus. The earliest bus departs from LCCT at 0700. There are also inter-terminal (MTB - LCCT - MTB) buses (MYR1.50 - starts at 0555) if you want to take the express train into the city (MYR35 one-way).

Hi bwonder25

There is another option for you if you have the time, stay at a local hotel "Concorde Inn" if you check it out you will find it's not expensive. It's only a basic hotel but it serves its purpose.

Good Luck
