Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Getting In


By Road

North-South Expressway
Most important roads in Peninsular Malaysia lead to and from Kuala Lumpur. The city lies about midway along the North-South Expressway (NSE route numbers E1 and E2) which runs in a north-south direction between the Malaysia-Thailand border at Bukit Kayu Hitam in Kedah (in the north) and Johor Bahru in Johor (in the south) on the Malaysian side of the Causeway to Singapore. The main expressway exits for Kuala Lumpur on the NSE are Jalan Duta (from the north) and Sungai Besi (from the south).

There is a toll for using the North-South Expressway and toll charges are by the distance travelled. For those who do not want to pay toll, Kuala Lumpur is on Federal Route One (trunk road) which, like the NSE, runs through all West Coast states of Peninsular Malaysia from Bukit Kayu Hitam, Kedah to Johor Bahru.

Karak Highway
The Karak Highway (E8), which later turns into the East Coast Expressway, links Kuala Lumpur and the West Coast of Central Peninsular Malaysia with the states in the East Coast. The eastern coastal states include Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan as well as the east coast of Johor.
