Getting to and from the MozCamp Asia
Mozilla will coordinate all travel to/from Kuala Lumpur International Airport and transfer by public transport to the venue. Once you have sent your RSVP you will be contacted by our travel agents to confirm your details and book your flights.
When you arrive at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) or the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (KLIA-LCCT) Mozilla representatives will provide tickets for the KLIA Ekspres train as well as tickets for the RapidKL Light Rail Transit (LRT).
For those travelers who arriving after public transportation is closed, Mozilla will provide a coach/bus from the airport (both KLIA and LCCT) to the hotel venue.
If you wish to make alternative arrangements for travel to or from Kuala Lumpur, feel free to do so at your own cost and let us know in your RSVP when you plan on being in Kuala Lumpur so we can provide you with details on when the bus will be leaving from downtown and/or the airport to Camp venue.
