KTM (Keretapi Tanah Melayu) - National Railway
Our national railway system was laid by the British during the colonial days and is still in operation today. With the improved highways and links, many prefer driving or coaching but going by rail remains a favourite with travellers eager to retrace footsteps of early adventurers.
These railroads link the north with south and east with west. This railway system is also linked with Thailand railroads and travels down to Singapore. Many travellers opt to travel the length of 3 countries ie Thailand - Malaysia - Singapore by rail as one gets to see the countryside at a slower and more relaxing pace.
The railway services from Kuala Lumpur now runs from the KLsentral station- a spanking new yet strangely laid out transportation hub not too far away from our historical train station. The KTM Intercity counters and platforms are on the 2nd floor of the building. DO NOT BE CONFUSED WITH THE KTM komuter which are commuter trains running within the city to the suburbs.
