Below are the direction suggested by BookFest.
BY TRAIN (LRT)
Take the Light Rail Transit (LRT), Putra Line to KLCC station. Turn left after exiting the turnstiles and walk through the Suria KLCC shopping centre Concourse Level to the Centre Court. Turn left and make your way past Cold Storage to the Guardian Pharmacy where there is a walkway through to the Convention Centre. Take the elevator to the Ground Floor where you will be directed to the Registration area.
FROM Kuala Lumpur International Airport
Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is only 28 minutes from the Kuala Lumpur city. It is located 75 kilometres (35miles) south of Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC); an hour drive by direct motorway link or 28 minutes on the KLIA Express Rail Link (ERL).
KLIA Ekspres is an express service that exclusively serves travellers between Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and the city. The journey takes 28 minutes one way and terminates at KL Sentral, the nation's main rail transportation hub.
If you are in a taxi or a chauffeured car, approach the Centre along Jalan Pinang and turn left into the main entrance (second turn after the Mandarin Oriental Hotel) for dropping off.
If you are driving, here are your parking options:
1. Take the first left after the Mandarin Oriental Hotel from Jalan Pinang up the ramp to the access to the car parking below the Centre.
2. Park in KLCC Suria Car Park and exit to the Concourse level Centre Court. Make your way past Cold Storage to the Guardian Pharmacy where there is a walkway through to the Convention Centre. Take the elevator to the Ground Floor where you will be directed to the Registration area.
*Personal Opinion: if you visit during weekend, nearby buildings around KLCC offer much cheaper rate but you have to take a walk and avoid night time. Not recommended for family with kids.
From the Suria KLCC shopping centre Ground Floor centre court take the park exit into the KLCC Park and turn right. Follow the Esplanade along towards the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and then follow the path around the edge of the park towards the centre of the building and enter via the Park Entrance.
