KL trams - sits 8 passengers each

Kuala Lumpur’s tram has got to be one of the city’s best kept secrets because not many locals know about it! Starting from Kuala Lumpur City Gallery, the tram goes through two zones; the heritage zone covering the vicinity of Dataran Merdeka and the nature zone, which covers the Tun Abdul Razak Heritage Park.

The best thing about taking the tram is that the ticket allows the holder to hop-on and hop-off as many times as required, so it allows one the flexibility to stop at an attraction or to skip it, and to plan the amount of time to visit a place, at one’s own convenience.
