    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.

    It is still used as a train station but it is not much busy. We came here with train to see the station. Building is very nice, perfect piece of architecture.

    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.
