In KL for the next 5 days... need recommendations

What is the best option for getting around in KL? Is there an unlimited train pass? Also it looks to be raining for most of my visit so any recommendations are welcome.

You can take the free Go Bus. If you want to visit the sites and attractions then consider the HOHO Bus which costs around Rm55 for a full 24 hours. Apart from that, depending on where you plan to stay (I recommend Bukit Bintang), you can actually walk to many of the places such as Petronas Towers, Chinatown, Sentral Market and so many others places.

What was your issue the HOHO bus. It is popular for travelers who don’t know the city very well.

They didn't provide any commentary on what we were driving by or seeing. I had 4 different drivers and all were the same. They did provide the number and name of the stop to which I had that on the pamphlet. usually I take them in new cities and they are great.

It's probably a language issue. The top 7 countries visiting Malaysia are, in order, Singapore, Indonesia, China, Thailand, Brunei, India, the Philippines. Bahasa Malaysia is probably the native language of the bus staff but won't be understood by many of the people on the bus. You might expect that everyone would speak English but that's not always the case for many visitors. I'm guessing the pamphlet is the best way to go.
