160km/hr! (100mph for you US readers)

That’s what the brochure said for the train that runs between the airport (kinda) and the downtown city of Kuala Lumpur.


First we had to take a shuttle bus to get to the train but that was included in the price and was only 20mins.  Over all, it was an hour to get to KL Sentral station.  It cost 12.50 Ringgits, which is about $4.  There was a direct bus from the airport cost 8 Ringgits (about $2.50) but I felt the train would be easier with luggage and space.  It was a good call and I did clock the speed at 140km/h at one point.

What was kinda neat is that to get off the train, the doors didn’t open till you pressed/touched a button on them.  Smart way to save some AC costs by not having to open the doors all the time.

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!
