My fav. Train, a bit costly than bus but least spensive than flight.. and get the berth i tell ya u'll enjoy it... nice nice ride indeed
Getting around KL is easy enough, the light rail system is good, (and expanding) and taxis are certainly cheap enough...
I didn't have time to figure out the local bus system, though.... Next time...
You can take a shuttle bus from LCCT, outside the arrival terminal, either Skybus (MYR9) or the yellow bus (RM8, couldn’t remember what’s the name). It will take you directly to KL Sentral for about an hour (or less as it was pass midnight). Then you can take a taxi from KL Sentral to your hotel. There are lots of taxi waiting at the bus arrival place, but the price will be exorbitant. Make sure to get a coupon taxi from inside the KL Sentral building, I think it will be less than MYR30 (although am not sure whether this service available pass midnight, can check for you if you want).
its easy getting in and around KL. whenever im in KL, i use the mtr and monorail. you'll never have a hard time finding Petronas or Bukit Bintang. and its the fastest and cheapest way to wander around.
mtr has a station connected to Petronas. Just get off KLCC and follow the exit signs and it will lead you to Petronas and Suria Mall.
KL Sentral is the main hub of the mtr. a 2-minute walk across the street is the monorail station. if you want to go Bukit Bintang just take the monorail from KL sentral.
Air Asia flies from Clark, Pampanga, Philippines and lands at LCC Terminal in KL. Take advantage of its promo fares and save some.
Another one that offers cheap fares/promos is Cebu Pacific Air, flies from NAIA and lands at LCC Terminal in KL.
You got 3 options. Take a bus as they leave right away if the one youre in doesnt just take the next one that seems to be in a hurry to go. Some wants to fill others wont. Its 8-10RM. The train timings could vary and you have to wait but its also cheap just u gota get off at some station and move to another. U can take the express transit which is more costly but the fastest. Then taxi to your hotel.

You can now take double decker buses, this kind of transportation is very popular nowadays, try it. To get ticket, you can go to NiCE Counter, Mezzanine Floor, KTMB Railway Station Building, Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin 03-22721586. The exact location is at the old railway station, walkable from Chinatown aprox. 20 minutes but you need a map, the roads are quite complicated.
Looking for good reliable buses to travel out of KL or back to KL and others, the bus in picture is one of the best choice. The ticket counter is at NiCE Counter, Mezzanine Floor, KTMB Railway Station Building, Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin 03-22721586
KL has four kinds of trains
(1) KTM - for the suburb - tourist would rarely catch this
(2) Putra Line - connects KL Sentral, KLCC, Bangsar, etc - more for KL and close suburbs
(3) Star Line - similar to Putra but service other areas of the central KL
(4) Monorail - connects KL Sentral to Chow Kit, Times Square, Bukit bintang
Ofcourse there are also good buses, taxis, KLIA, etc
I better save my time to introduce this one, its already so well known. Monorail actually has nothing much needed to learn, passengers only need to have money and then go to the monorail station..... read the website lah.
In KL you can use a bus, the lightrail or the metro. That is, if you managed to find out which one to take and were to get out. A taxi is much more convenient. Most taxi's are metered and pretty cheap. I've had 20 minut rides for just RM10
Taxi would be a miserable experience unless you know someone who can recommend you their regular cabbie. Trying to flag one off the street would subject you to much frustration. Commonly they will try and not use the meter and quote you at least double/triple fares by meter (even to locals). Usually they'll ask you where you want to go and it can take you 3 or 4 cabs before you find a driver willing to take you where you want to go especially during peak hours. There are syndicates which operate at stands outside KLCC/Twin Towers and Bukit Bintang area. These groups of cabbies fix prices amongst themselves so the whole row of them will tell you the same thing so you think it's the correct price. I guess they're frustrated with the low fare rates fixed by the govt, rising fuel costs, and the mad traffic jams but it's still unfair to charge RM15 from the Millenium Hotel to KLCC when it really costs about RM5.
My advise is to stick with the monorail and LRT. Clean, cheap, comfy.
There is also a KL City Hop-on/Hop-off bus for about RM30 a day which is a good deal as it'll take you to most of the worthwhile attractions but you'll have to weigh that against getting stuck in the mad traffic during peak hours.
The LCCT is about 1 hour from Pasarakyat. Could be more depending on the traffic condition. I don't know the distance in km.
From LCCT you can take a taxi directly to pasarakyat. I think it should cost less than RM100 per car. Alternatively, you can get on a bus (rm5-9 per person) from LCCT to KL Sentral Station and from there take a taxi to pasarakyat. I would recommend taking the taxi directly.

This morning, i had called a taxi which appeared promptly in front of the hotel at 7 20 am and within forty five minutes was at KLIA. 80 MYR one way. i wanted to give him an extra 10 myr for tolls and he took it only reluctantly. the gentle driver AZhari is from Perlis on the border with Thailand and was a careful driver and at no time did he intimidate about overcharging. But the Taxi system in KL (and also Malacca) is less than optimal.
Those who wish to use the services of Mr Azhari may call him at +60193311950 (will put this as a tip on my KL page as well)
