Kuala Lumpur Monorail

Is strange to tell if a residence living in Kuala Lumpur never take the KL Monorial before. I'm one of them. (Don't shock because I drive to work daily.) The traffic in Kuala Lumpur city especially the Golden Triangle is always congested during weekdays and especially working hours. You will take more than 15 minutes to reach a place that is not more than 5KM away by car. So can you imagine how frustrated you were if you are rushing for meeting or appointment.

Well last week because of the bad traffic out the road I try on the KL Monorail from Jalan Sultan Ismail to Chow Kit. It just merely take me less than 10 minutes to reach my destination. Wah-Lau this is amazing and yet convenient. It is worth to pay RM1.60 for the journey. (Better than take a cab or drive yourself!!!)

For tourists visiting Kuala Lumpur, KL Monorail is one of the public transport that you shouldn't miss. The entire route basically will pass by all the major streets in the City.

Another highlight of public transport that tourists shouldn't miss is the Double Decker Hop-on, Hop off bus. During Visit Malaysia Year 2007 the Tourism Board of Malaysia has launched a Double Decker Hop-on, Hop-off bus for tourists to have a quick glance in more than 40 attractions within the Kuala Lumpur city like Petronas Twin Tower, KL Conventiion Centre, KL Tower, National Palace, National Museum, National Monument, National Mosque, Merdeka Square, Lake Garden, major hotels and many more.
