The location of “Sarawak Cottage” PokéStop is at the corner of the departure and arrival terminal around Gate 6 – 7, beside The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf cafe. It is mainly accessible to user of Malaysian Airlines, or those who have a relax drinks and coffee at The Coffee Bean. Many tourist might just miss this stop if leave the terminal in a hurry upon arrival.
This PokéStop have radius coverage extending to waiting area of Gate 6 – 7, The Coffee Bean cafe, and nearby VVIP Lounge. It is mostly not accessible for the general public from the common lobby of the airport. Some might face some problems in GPS accuracy due to the interference and shielding from thick glass wall, metal concourses, heavy vehicles and planes, and other communication interference. One may loose track of the actual location while wandering around the terminal.
It is a safe PokéStop for everyone to enjoy, however be aware of your surrounding while wandering and catch pokemon in the terminal as one might accidentally bump into another foreign tourist or trip over someones luggage. It is warned that do not play with phones or electronic devices while boarding into the aircraft or on the aircraft as it might interfere to the communication system on board.
There are 2 other PokéStop around that accessible to all travelers within the departing and arrival terminal (total two at lobby and three within terminal), making possible to have a Pokemon spawn frenzy by activating lure in all of them, but however the distance between PokéStop is quite far and not much overlapping, makes it sub-optimal place for farming. Furthermore, occasionally the place is packed with tourist and travelers during peak hours. But if you are planing for departing flight wait, then why not just activate the lure on this PokéStop and enjoy spawn frenzy.
