Transportation and Accommodation


There are three ways to get around in Kuala Lumpur; metered taxis, public transport and GrabCar (similar to Uber). Metered taxis are the most widely and easily available transportation in cities. Minivan type taxis are available to transport larger groups. Most hotels have their own limousine or their concierge can flag down or call for radio taxi service. Taxi fares in Malaysia are calculated according to meters. Nevertheless, the best way to experience the sights and sounds would be to go for a walk around town.
