These days, there’s an app available for almost anything that you would need for travelling. From e-wallets to online maps to language tools, the modern-day traveller is truly blessed with a multitude of travel aids that are readily available at their fingertips.
Useful Apps To Download When Travelling In Kuala Lumpur
But speaking of apps, some apps may be more useful than others depending on the destination itself. And in Kuala Lumpur’s (KL) case, there are a couple of useful apps that come to mind.
Here are some of them:
Ride-hailing app. E-wallet. Food delivery app.
What can’t Grab do?
Starting out as a simple and straightforward ride-hailing app, the Grab app has now evolved beyond its roots to transform into a full-fledged lifestyle app. Therefore, it’s unsurprising that this app is one of the must-download on every traveller’s list when they visit KL.
Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Subway/Kuala Lumpur Metro
If you are indeed planning to visit KL, chances are that you’ll need to get around via the city’s massive (and at times, confusing) network of integrated railway system. Indeed, this is a great way to skip all of the constant gridlocks which go around in the city streets.
In KL, you have the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), Light Rail Transit (LRT), Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), monorail, and commuter rail to pick from. This is where this app comes in.
The Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Subway app and Kuala Lumpur Metro app are two apps (by different developers) that provide information pertaining to your railway journey including routes, estimated duration of travel, and also the fares from one station to another.
Aside from Google Maps, Maps.me is the perfect companion for travellers without Internet access.
The offline navigation app allows you to download offline maps to use when you are out of range of Wi-Fi. And the best thing about Maps.me is that it also provides detailed information regarding destinations.
Malaysia Trip Planner
If you’re one for spontaneity, you likely do not have a concrete itinerary in place. Then the Malaysia Trip Planner app would be your best bet in finding information on popular and lesser-known Malaysian tourist attractions.
A highlight of the apps is the city guides, which definitely has KL as one of the 50 cities featured in its catalogue. Each travel guide also comes with a checklist of major monuments and attractions so that you won’t miss out on anything during your visit.
