Transportation in Kuala Lumpur


KL's central districts are easily navigable on foot with compact clusters of shops, hotels, restaurants and attractions within walking distance of each other. Strolling around the streets and pavements of colourful Chinatown and Little India provides a particularly enjoyable sightseeing stroll.


KL's plentiful supply of distinctive red-and-white taxis can be flagged down on the street. Each is metered, although overcharging tourists is a common scam, so it pays to agree on a ball-park figure in advance.


KL's inexpensive buses are served by bus stops in every nook and cranny of the city, including the adjoining areas of neighbouring Selangor state. Avoid rush hours (7am-9am and 5pm-7pm), when buses are busy and slow-moving. Tickets are issued on boarding via a coin-operated machine, so be sure to carry loose change.

Rent your car

Several expressways link Kuala Lumpur with other Peninsular Malaysia destinations, but you can expect to pay a toll on these. Tolls haven’t eased congestions in the city and double parking is a regular occurrence. Underground car parks are a better option.
