We are just 20 minutes train ride away from the city centre (Bukit Bintang MRT Station). Take a train to Taman Connaught MRT Station and exit at Gate C. We can get you from there upon request.

For convenience, take a GRAB taxi (like UBER) directly to the school (recommended). It's about 20 minutes ride from the city centre and costs about RM 20 (USD 5). Used widely by local Malaysians, it's safe and reliable.

We also offer pick-up from and back to your hotel (within KL) at an additional price of RM 100 (USD 25)

A nearby hotel which is connected to the train station, Sunway Velocity Hotel, is only 15 minutes taxi (USD 3) / train ride (USD 0.60) away.
