You can easily transfer, board, or get off a KTM, LRT (Light Rail Transit), MRT, and monorail trains to go to restaurants, nightlife spots, shopping malls, and other well-known landmarks around Kuala Lumpur. You can also find direct links to the airport (KLIA and also KLIA2) as well as the check-in facilities.
Besides acting as the centre of the transportation hub, KL Sentral is also a spot to find various ranges of dining alternatives. You won’t have any difficult time finding fast food joints, local and international restaurants, as well as coffee shops in the area. They are all located inside Nu Sentral Shopping Mall.
