Status of the monorail service after 15 years is very bad with the old 2-coach trains running infrequently and not sufficient to cope with customer demand - particularly during rush hours. No announcements of next train is poor customer information. In addition, still 'work in...More

This is not made for tourists with luggage although from my hotel it was the easiest way to KL Sentral and onto the airport. It is frequent, quickish and reliable. It has A/C so I didn't die.

I took this monorail train from KL Sentral to Bukit Bingtang station and it was very comfortable. There is no driver in the front so you can get a great view of the city. It is also priced economically and the coaches are cool.

An easy and efficient way of travelling within the city, the trains are clean but at times very crowded, very punctual and links to a number of places

It is typically hot and overcrowded and seems like a long wait between trains. Good option if raining but prefer to use GRAB to travel the city streets.

Rapid Kl is a mono rail and quite a cheap mode of transportation . Also if yo have never experienced the same i would strongly recommend to add it in your itinerary for atleast 1 route .

Whilst I found this service cheap and effective beating the normal busy city traffic I felt the two carriage rolling stock rather out dated. Inside the air conditioning was also poor. In addition the frequency of the service was slow.

You can take the KLIA Express (non-stop) or the Transit train (2 stops) from the airport to KL Sentral (spelt this way instead of "Central"). Once you exit at KL Sentral station, look out for the sign (above eye-level) that... More

We used Grab Car instead of taxi when we were in KL. Never waited more than 5 minutes. It is like Uber, but Malaysia based.

I would recommend the HOHO Bus, it caters to tourists and it takes you to most places of interest. It provides an audio guide and has more relevant stops. You have to get a 24 hour pass for this. However, GO KL is free but... More
