  On the way from KLIA to KL
by XLH

This was, as far as i know, one of only 2 ways to get from KLIA to KL city. And it seems they have made full use of that fact as the charge for a 28 minute train ride cost RM35/-, or RM70/- for a return ticket (the other way, of course, was by cab, and they also quote ridiculous rates, if you don't go by the metre).
It was quite scenic though, as you could see (i think) Putrajaya, the administrative capital and plantations.
But a word of advice is, since there's no savings in buying the return ticket, you might as well just grab the one-way one, and maybe on the way back from KL, you could find a cheaper cab?
Overall though, the frequency was every 15 minutes during peak hours (and 20 for off peak) and the train ride was quite a clean and pleasant one. Also, there seems to be empty seats even during peak hours, so, that was convenient!
