Menara KL, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

A Chance To Touch The Clouds - Kuala Lumpur Tower

Didn't get the ticket for Petrons Twin Towers? Don't worry there is another location to get aerial view of the city and of the Twin Towers itself! Situated right in the heart of city is the seventh tallest telecommunication tower, one of the top places to visit in Malaysia and of course one of the top Kuala Lumpur tourist attractions known as Menara KL or KL Tower.

KL Tower
The city view is far better from the observation deck of KL Tower than Twin Towers! The KL tower observation deck is around 100 meters higher than Twin Towers.

Now you must  be wondering how tall is KL Tower then? Well it's around 421 meters tall. In-comparison with the twin towers, well Twin Tower still remains highest tower in KL.

Again you will have to pay entrance fees but view of city is worth the money paid for. The KL Tower entrance fee is around 50RM. The opening hours are 9 AM to 10 PM daily. Undoubtedly, visiting KL tower is one of the best things to do Kuala Lumpur.

If you wish to have a dinner with best aerial view of the city, don't forget to visit Atmosphere 360, the revolving restaurant at the top of the tower.

How To Get To KL Tower

To get to KL Tower using public transportation, you got following three options:
  • Take a taxi :)
  • Take KL monorail to Bukit Nanas station and walk from there. It's not like very near from there but neither far. I guess, it should be around 10 Mins walk.
  • Take KL LRT to Dang Wangi LRT Station and walk from there. Again not very near but neither very far. Again, it shouldn't be more than 10 Mins walk.

Note: There is shuttle service provided by government from KL Tower to the near by rail stations. So kindly check shuttle service timings. You might not have to walk at all !!

Happy travelling...
