  • LRT - Light Rail Transit

    Kuala Lumpur Transportation

    MY Rapid is a company that run the main public transportation system in KL. They provide Putra (Kelana Jaya Line) and Star (Ampang Line) LRT, Monorail, and RapidKL buses. How good are they? I would say " okay", and not good enough compare to Singapore, HK, Melbourne, or even Bangkok, but they might be better than Hanoi. The LRTs and Monorail work...

    Penang provides free shuttle service to historical sites and the service runs in a loop. You can hop-on or off the shuttle at any point where the bus-stop signs shows the free shuttle service.

    I do not know since when the passengers' deck on a ferry has been fenced to a smaller area in the middle of the upper deck. It may because the passengers has become less compare to last time.

    Kuala Lumpur Transportation

    If you want to experience something different like a ferry boat ride to a shopping mall. Then try to take a water taxi to Mines Shopping Mall for a few Ringgit.

  • A Taxi Ferry a Local Option

    A taxi-ferry is the fastest way of getting around in rush hour traffic.

Also I think it's more economical than renting a car.The driver...

  • Traveling From LCCT to Melaka

    My advice is to wait for the 5.30pm Transnasional Bus which takes you directly from LCCT to Melaka. Any other option would take you into KL itself and at the time that you are traveling would probably put you right smack in the rush hour jam. You're really not saving any time at all.Expect to spend a little more than RM 150 for a budget cab or more...
