This tall section of the track comes just after the arched bridge. Tall? Well, not in comparison to the Petronas Towers!

Next stop is Medan Tuanku Station. David is preparing to shoot video of the the train leaving the station. From this profile angle, you can really enjoy what I think is one of the best-looking Alweg monorail train designs in the world.

Medan Tuanku Station is where you can get incredible pictures of the monorail running through the trees with the Petronas Towers in the distance. I've said it before and I'll say it again...monorails blend in very well with the skylines of cities.
