Kuala Lumpur sightseeing just got easier with the recent introduction of the KL Monorail KL Hop-On Hop-Off One Day Unlimited Ride package. Although its quite a mouthful to say, the Malaysia vacation promotion makes it comfortable for tourists to access the many major tourist spots in Kuala Lumpur within one day.
For just RM20 per person (adult or child), pass-holders can enjoy unlimited travel around Kuala Lumpur in any single day on two modes of transportation – the KL Hop-On Hop-Off (KL HOHO) bus and the KL Monorail train. With the ticket, tourists can hop on and off the bus and monorail as and when they wish.
The KL HOHO bus follows a pre-determined Kuala Lumpur sightseeing route that covers 70 tourist attractions and 22 designated stops including several at KL Monorail stations. On board are pre-recorded commentaries of tourist attractions in eight different languages, i.e. Bahasa Malaysia, English, Mandarin, Hindi, Arabic, Japanese, French and Spanish.
Traveling on the Kuala Lumpur sightseeing double-decker KL HOHO bus, passengers can view the best of Kuala Lumpur with its semi-glass roof. Its route covers numerous attractions including the iconic PETRONAS Twin Towers, the Golden Triangle shopping district where Pavilion and Starhill malls are located, the green belt at Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens and the historic district near Merdeka Square.
Meanwhile, there are 11 KL Monorail stations situated in high-traffic areas around the city, connecting passengers to shopping districts, major hotels, commercial centres, tourist attractions and stretches of chic dining and clubbing establishments.
Traveling on these elevated rail systems is a Kuala Lumpur sightseeing experience in itself as it offers a birds eye view of the city below, and a stop at any one of the stations will give tourists a further peek into the typical urban lifestyle of KL-ites.
The KL Sentral stop, for instance, is located near Brickfields, an area thriving with the business and social activities of the mostly-Indian community there. A walk around the area is an unforgettable sensorial experience filled with colourful sights, aromas of curries and burning incense, and the sounds of the lilting Tamil widely spoken there.
The Maharajalela interchange, on the other hand, is the gateway to Kuala Lumpurs self-proclaimed Chinatown where vendors will appeal to you with all manner of fruits, shoes, clothes, bags, herbal remedies and more! More than just a marketplace of sorts, Chinatown embodies Kuala Lumpurs exciting and fast-paced lifestyle.
In addition to Kuala Lumpur sightseeing, pass-holders can enjoy great discounts on entrance tickets to Petronsains, the KL Bird Park, and Aquaria, as well as on food and beverages at Seri Melayu restaurant.
Tickets can be purchased at the Bukit Bintang and KL Sentral monorail counters and aboard all KL HOHO buses. The ticket entitles holders to unlimited rides in a single day on the KL Monorail and KL HOHO buses. The promotion ends on 31 May 2009. KL HOHO buses operate from 8:30 am till 8:30 pm at half-hourly intervals, while the KL Monorail has daily services from 6 am until 12 am.
