Kuala Lumpur Tower, Menara Kuala Lumpur

Posted by on May 2nd, 2007
Filed Under: Kuala Lumpur, Sights

Soaring to 421m, and considered a main feature of the city skyline, the Kuala Lumpur Tower is the world’s fourth tallest communications tower.

To experience the exhilarating view from the Kuala Lumpur Tower, you can go to the 335-metre high observation deck on a high-speed lift.

From here, the city’s eccentric architecture and lush greenery will be laid out before you. The Bukit Nanas Forest reserve, also known as the ‘Green Lung’ of Kuala Lumpur City, is located just beside the Kuala Lumpur Tower. This uniquely ‘real’ plot of ancient rainforest offers a walking trail and has flora and fauna indigenous to Malaysia. Here, you get the frankly surreal opportunity to see colourful butterflies, insects, monkeys, squirrels and exotic birds in their natural habitat – all within earshot of the hum of downtown traffic!

The latest attraction at KL Tower and Bukit Nanas is a reverse bungee called The G-Force. Not for the faint of heart, your ride will be recorded and given to you on a DVD.

It is an uphill walk to the tower from the downtown streets, so if you are not overly fond of the heat and/or walking, do take a taxi. There are occasionally traditional and contemporary musical performances here, so get in touch with the tower information desk before you go.

The Attractions:

1. Observation Deck
Spectacular views at 276 metres above ground level with a multi language audio guide of Kuala Lumpur’s city skyline.

2. Seri Angkasa Revolving Restaurant
Dine up in the clouds. Enjoying chic dining with breathtaking views of the city in Malaysia’s tallest revolving restaurant.

3. Mega View Banquet Deck
Mega View Banquet Deck is an exclusive venue to hold your private functions with absolute privacy.

4. Shopping
Souvenir shops, cafes, restaurants along with a photo shop and convenience shop provide visitors with peace-of-mind shopping.

5. Tower Terrace
Relax to the sounds of a cascading pool, the breeze whispering through the trees and mist fans cooling you down.

Admission: RM8 (Adults), RM3 (Child from 4 to 12 years)
Open: Daily from 10am – 10pm

By Monorail or Taxi
The easiest way to get to the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve is via the KL Monorail and PUTRA LRT. The nearest PUTRA LRT station to Kuala Lumpur Tower is the Dang Wangi station. You could also take the KL Monorail and disembark at the Bukit Nanas station. From there you need to either take a taxi or walk up Jalan Sultan Ismail then turn right on Jalan P. Ramlee, and right again up the hill. The KL Tower entrance will be on your left.

    Ramadan promo non—Muslim lunch RM40

    Meal for two – sensational buffet
    Service – faultless
    Outlook – simply the best

    The bill! 2 meals @RM40 plus ordered one Martini in long glass with ginger ale, one orange juice, two glasses of water – RM193!!!

    Explanation: Double Martini (double NOT ordered), 2 orange juice (one ordered and delivered), water ONE BOTTLE imported from Italy a staggering RM28 – we ordered two GLASSES plain water.

    After monumentally embarrassing to overseas guest arguments with a) poor waiter and b) reluctant management tool bill finally amended to RM134 – a superb event spoilt; a KL visit highlight destroyed.


    Cabs – both Limo and ‘Budget’ extortionate from KL Menara

    Remedy – take courtesy bus to bottom of hill and hail a meter cab on street: save RM+++++
