This is a easy way to get around in KL. The monorail is fast , well airconditioned and cheap and a good way to avoid the traffic jams down below. Its also a nice way of getting another view of the city as you nicely elevated over the road. The tracks runs from KL Sentral to Titiwangsa and making many stop in between.

The Monorail is another latest light rail system which connects all the way from KL Sentral and covers places like Jalan Imbi (for Times Square), Bukit Bintang (acclaimed great shopping at Star Hill) and Bukit Nenas (connection to KL Tower). Prices are slightly higher than Putra LRT but offers a great experience of KL city view.
The KL Monorail, suspended on a bridge above the city is a great way to get around in KL and also see the city from above :o)
A journey from KL Central costs only RM 2.10 one way and lasts about 10 minutes, a lot longer if you take a taxi :o)
The monorail was very easy to use. We stayed at the Melia hotel so it was right outside our door. You can pick up a rail map at most hotels. You purchase your ticket at the station (very cheap), and all the stops have good signage. The train runs from 6am to midnight.
I love the monorail and travel on it all the time when I am in KL (a couple of times a year).
It runs between 6am and 11.00pm at night and you can get to most of the shopping and many, many tourist areas very easily by using the monorail.
I also use the LRT (Light Rail Transit) and KTM (Komuter) at times as these can get you to other areas just outside the city or to other areas such as Port Klang.
Fares are cheap and the ticket machines are easy to use (tickets offices are in many stations as well.
If you're thinking of travelling around Bukit Bintang along Jalan Sultan Ismail (Hard Rock Cafe, Concorde Hotel, Sheraton Imperial Hotel, Jalan Doraisamy, Maju Junction Mall) towards Bangsar or KL Sentral (Central Station), then this is the best method - the Monorail. It's convenient and less hassle.
Guidebooks say KL is no city for pedestrians.......I cant agree to that since walking around KL was quite easy, ok, I got lost once in a while, but i no other way do you get to know a city better than by walking. From Bukit Bintang to the Petronas Towers and so on...you can check out every place along the way.
Ok, this is about the Monorail, a very convinient way to get around, from Sentral to Bukit Bintang for example and everywhere along that way.
