"White elephant?: The Monorail" Kuala Lumpur Transportation Tip by xuessium

Kuala Lumpur Transportation: 630 reviews and 762 photos

I am not too sure about this line - it was greatly maligned by the press as an obstentatious project and certainly went through birthing pains before it was launched in 2003. More modern and comfortable than the LRT, I find that the stations do not really offer much to visitors as they are located in weird and slightly skewed locations...which means that you still have to walk quite some distance to get to the place you want to go. Also, connecting the LRT from the Monorail isn't as easy as it looks on the charts, as it usually involves quite a bit of walking.
