Thanks for your advice everyone I am going to have a think about and see about stopping over, but silly question but how does that work would I need to buy two lots of tickets anyone know? What did you do when you stopped over?

Your ticket should allow for a stopover so there is no need to buy 2 separate tickets. You could stop for 2-3 days in Kuala Lumpur, or longer if you wanted to see some more of Malaysia. I spent a month there and there is loads to see and do.

Well it depends. Sometimes the cheapest promotional rate may not allow stopover, which is basically tickets bought in single itinerary, but with time allowed to visit another place in between your departing city and your destination - usually the place where you do your flight transfer. If you fly with MAS, the natural stopover city is Kuala Lumpur.

Hey Dani, I'm flying into Melbourne on Jan 31st from London Heathrow, and I got my ticket through STA Travel (which you can do if you are under 26... I think it is...)

My one way flight came to £409 taxes included! So these guys are definitely worth checking out. Ensure that with these quotes you get that the airport taxes are mentioned, as you could end up having to pay another £100+ on top...

Best of luck with your trip!

Edit: Ah, just checked your profile and you are 27. Ignore the above comments then. Sorryyyyy

I'm not quite sure if this applies to you, but if you plan on travelling within Australia, book your flights online if possible because some travel agencies will charge you fees on top of your tickets. Flight Centre is normally pretty reliable, as is Webjet.

Malaysian Airlines are recognised as one of the best airlines in the world with 5 star service. They are one of only a handful of airlines to achieve such a high status.

if you need a cheaper alternative, you can go with AirAsia that flies from Stansted Airport to LCCT Kuala Lumpur International Airport. they are kind of ok..... i flew with AirAsia and my flight was booked 5 months earlier, the cost was just 220-ish £
