Yes, Kuala Lumpur’s traffic is notorious, but with a city so compact and with so many sights, is it any wonder? KL is the best place to hire a car for touring the peninsula, though driving out of KL is complicated by a confusing one-way system and contradictory road signs that can throw off your sense of direction. KL has plenty of air-conditioned taxis, which queue up at designated taxi stops across the city. You can also flag down moving taxis, but drivers will stop only if there is a convenient place to pull over. Other means of transports that are also available are trains, monorails, Uber services as well as cycling.
