    The KL Monorail system has 11 stations from KL Sentral to Titiwangsa.

    The travelling time along the 8.6km route from Titiwangsa to KL Sentral station is about 19 mins.
    Here are the 11 stations:

    KL Sentral
    Tun Sambanthan
    Maharajalela
    Hang Tuah (Interchange for STAR)
    Imbi
    Bukit Bintang
    Raja Chulan
    Bukit Nanas (Interchange for PUTRA)
    Medan Tuanku
    Chow Kit
    Titiwangsa (Interchange for STAR)

    We often took the monorail from Bukit Bintang station to KL Sentral to change over to the Putra Line just across the street.

    KL Monorail.

    Among all modes of transportation in KL, I like monorail the most. It's just like a sigh-seeing train, travelling in the middle of the air, enabling you to look at the city from a different angle. Moreover, the trains are new, very well air-conditioned and fast.... they are really fast, i felt like having a ride in an amusement park~!~

    Getting around by Monorail

    Kuala Lumpur Monorail by aussirose

    Getting around on the Monorail is simple. The lines are colour coded for easy identification. Although they can tend to be quite packed. We had to wait for the next one as we couldn't get onto the first....but never mind, they are only about 10 minutes apart.

    The Kuala Lumpur monorail is a very convenient mode of transport for the tourists as it serves the central part of Kuala Lumpur where the tourists are likely to go.
    It stops at 11 stations including places like KL central, Bukit Bintang and Petronas towers, so you have a good chance of stepping on to the monorail.
    It´s a very fast and efficient way of getting around the city where you often have traffic jams during rush hour, so get on the monorail if you wanna get there fast.

    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.

    KL Monorail station - a striking scene

    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 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.

    Only 30 years behind Mickey mouse

    Not a mouse in site!

    When I first wrote this tip the monorail in KL was about to open on the 31st August. I had just seen a train go by the window of the internet cafe I was then sitting in (Sun 24th August).

    The word 'mass' as in transit does not really come to mind as the two-car trains can't hold that many people.

    On the other hand it will provide a very useful link from the Sentral (correct spelling!) Station to the Bingtang / golden triangle hotel area.

    It is a pity they could not site the station at Sentral station a bit closer - it will mean a short walk through the car park to get the service.

    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.
