Getting Around Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur has an extensive public transport system consisting of a metro, a monorail, various suburban trains and a bus network. It’s likely you’ll use a mixture of these while in the city, combined with a little bit of walking. The MRT, or Mass Rapid Transit, consists of five underground lines which are easy to navigate – fares are cheap and signs are in English. The Monorail is an exciting way to see the city from above – ride its whole length and admire the views.

When to Go to Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur experiences an equatorial climate, bringing hot, wet weather to the city throughout the year. Average temperatures vary very little, hovering around 28°C for much of the year. The upshot of this is that there is no bad time to travel, and Kuala Lumpur can be visited at any time of year – it just depends on when’s best for you.
