I'm so proud of this shot. It's my photo art shot.
Even the stations of the KL Monorail don't require
support pylons of massive dimensions. Note the couple walking
into traffic. Jaywalking is the rule in Malaysia, and it is truly
frightening to watch, especially when tourists attempt it. By

All stations are open air. Tent-like covers allow light
to filter through and also keep passengers dry during thunderstorms.
They get pretty hot though, so some fans would be a welcome addition.
Once inside the trains, excellent air-conditioning cools everyone
down. If you can't climb stairs, forget the KL Monorail. There
are some escalators, but stairs still must be negotiated in stations.
Malaysia has not committed to disabled-friendly structures yet.
When that happens, KL Monorail spokesmen say they will alter the
station access accordingly.
Looking north from Bukit Bintang Station. Unlike the
monorails of Japan, long spans are not made of steel. Note the
long distance between these two pylons over this intersection
