    The elevated platform in the open offers good views to the iconic buildings in this central area, the spiked towers of the old colonial railway station and modern islamic Dayabumi tower. There is a new pedestrian walkway leading over the river. Chinatown with a huge skyscraper under construction is on the other side, the light blue Central market offers best and easiest Asian shopping without haggling.

    This is an odd attraction. This is a line I've used many times when in KL and it's especially useful for KL Sentral, KLCC and Kampang Park, along with several interchange points for other lines on the LRT. All the stations I've used on this line are air conditioned, making it not only useful, but also a respite from the relentless heat outside.

    Currently the lines are virtually empty because of you know what and there are fewer trains running than normal. Until the situation returns to normal, be prepared to wait up to 7 minutes for the next train.

    Travelling by MRT is a breeze. The train always be there once in 8 minutes tops. During peak hours it will be too crowded but manageable.Just take the next one of it is full.

    2.6 MR gets a one way ticket from KL Sentral station to Batu Caves.
    Newish trains,but 40 minutes is a long time for such a short distance.
    The departure board kept changing the time,in the end it left on time.

    Using KLIA Express is the fastest way, not the cheapest way though, between KL Sentral and KLIA or KLIA2. The difference between KLIA Express and KLIA Transit, KLIA Transit stop at three stations along the same route, so it will be a little bit longer trip. However, both are really comfortable, and relieve passengers from any traffic jams that could be encountered during rush hours. Possible to use these KLIA trains to transit between KLIA and KLIA2 with ticket MYR 2, while if you want free ride, use Bus transfer between these two terminals.

    Huge network, large no fleet, can be seen all over in Kuala Lumpur. Good fully air condition buses with smooth drive. We mostly used it as linkage for LRT/MRT that why it was free in most of cases.

    Use them frequently as & when required as they provide excellent service.

    I visited the Bandar Tan Hussein Onn area to visit a friend and while coming back I saw this MRT feeder bus. I took this bus along with a friend to reach the MRT station. The bus stopped near the staircase of the MRT station. It was very comfortable and easily recognizable.

    Serving the central Kelana Jaya line from the fast growing hub of scyscrapers around KLCC park the metro will take you to KL Sentral and the Central Market, Pasar Seni. There is a sushi stand by the entrance in daytime and other small businesses. Personal assistance is also available if the ticket automats accepting only small notes and coins don't function.

    Due to the timing of our trip, taxis were in short supply in KL. To be safe, we stuck to the KLIA Ekspres which we found to be incredibly convenient - once you get to it. We used the monorail to connect from our hotel to the train - which took a bit of time. However, the train service itself is great. The tickets are a bit pricey so if you're a family of three or more, a taxi is still cheaper. But, if you're interested in avoiding traffic and reducing your carbon footprint, this is a great call.

    ONE COMPLAINT: This train also carries passengers between the two terminals at KLIA - for a small fee. When we asked as the train desk if there was no free way to travel between terminals, they told us NO. There is a free bus. I'm not a fan of companies lying to encourage increased patronage.

    I had no idea that even a bus service like GoKL could be reviewed. So when I found out the big amount of reviews, I had some fun browsing through the worst reviews (1 dot), just to see what people have to complain about when you’re getting a FREE service.

    I’m not a passing-by tourist. I happen to use the GoKL bus mainly over the weekend, to go around downtown. It may occasionally happen to have not the best of driver (only once, really a brusque driving style, better be seated or you risk falling on the floor), it’s not Japan, so you can’t expect the buses to be punctual by the minute. Other than that, for what is worth given the special times we are living (no tourists around at all, thanks Covid 19 for the misery you are putting in the whole world!), here’s my experience.

    The social distancing is respected and taken care of. To get on the bus you need to scan the MySejahtera app, which checks where everybody has been. No smartphone? There’s a booklet where each passenger has to fill his details (left totally to the honesty of the people). You can download and print a map of the five lines (orange, blue, green, red, purple) so to know where each one goes, where do they cross each other or other public transport means, and where all the stops are. Drivers are mainly supposed to drive competently, and not to smile to possibly grumpy tourists with expectations. Nevertheless, if you have the simple courtesy to thank them when you get off the bus, the chances of getting a smile back increase exponentially. Buses are airconditioned, like any other mean of transportation except bikes and motorbikes. If you don’t like it (as I do) search a point or a seat where you are not directly under the blow of frozen air. A bus stays clean as long as the people travelling in it behave like civilized persons and not pigs. Just saying, in the last few months I never happened to find a single piece of trash on any of the buses. Is the quality of the average passenger improved? There’s a good free Wi-fi signal (with no catches, no need to register to any site, nor to drop you personal info somewhere) on board all the buses. You can even download free e-books while on, if you feel like reading rather than looking around thru the windows. All in all, it’s a nice and relaxed way to go around downtown KL and see quite some landmarks too.

    And don’t forget this main feature: it’s FREE.

    Inexpensive local way to see the sights high up over the traffic if avoiding peak hour crowds. The journey starts at KL Sentral railway station back at the mall end, Maharajalela is for Chinatown, Bukit Bintang for Pavilion and Bukit Nanas is the nearest to Petronas towers. Medan Tuanku opposite the Quill mall is closest to the Indian textile district and Sogo department store. The end station at Titiwangsa is yet among construction sites, if you want to walk to the lake and National Art museum exit already at Chow Kit.

    My long holiday consisted of three journeys with the modern and freezing cold ETS train. The ferry from Langkawi arrives in Kuala Perlis from where I shared a ride with a local lady to the train station in Arau. The journey to Kuala Lumpur takes 5 hours, there is limited selection of refreshments on board, inclusive in first class. I stock up in advance at the spacious white station which has several food outlets. Travelling from KL to Penang the destination is Butterworth on mainland, you can get a taxi at the station over to the island either by the bridge or ferry. By creating a profile with Ktmb you can purchase the tickets online at home, they cost only around 20 euros.
