Why Menara Kuala Lumpur Tower is special ?

Along with the Petronas Twin Towers, Menara KL Tower is easily Malaysia’s most recognizable and popular landmark. Constructed in 1994, the tower stands at 421 metres and effortlessly trumps the Petronas Twin Towers with the highest and most spectacular view of the city. This gleaming tower’s spindle-like apex is visible from almost anywhere in Kuala Lumpur.

Menara KL’s viewing deck is, at 276 metres, at least 100 metres higher than the Petronas Twin Towers’ Skybridge; the view is marvellous during the day and even better at night when you can see the entire sparkling city centre.

The tower is erected atop the Bukit Nanas (Pineapple Hill) Forest Reserve – the oldest gazetted forest reserve in the country, which houses age-old trees as well as flora and fauna indigenous to Malaysia’s tropical climate. Primarily used as a communications infrastructure, it is the fifth-tallest telecommunications tower in the world.

What to explore at Menara Kuala Lumpur Tower?

 Most visitors will visit the KL Tower  with RM8, it really gives you the bird's eye view of the entire city. There's also a revolving restaurant, Atmosphere 360, to allow you to have your meal while enjoying the view of the city.

How to get to Menara Kuala Lumpur Tower?

By Train

Take a LRT (eg, KL sentral station) to Dang Wangi station and take a short 10 minute walk following the signage to Menara Kuala Lumpur.

By Taxi

The easiest way is to catch a cab as the roads in KL city center is rather confusing. Try to avoid peak time; 7.00-9.00am, 5.30-8.00pm as the road in the city center will be rather congested.

MYR99? i think many traveler will say same comment. I suggest just go to Twin Tower for height view and just take a walk trough jungle track on Bukit Nanas in KL Tower area.Overpriced but well maintained and good service by free shuttle from downhill v.v

Went for luncheon buffet and ate for the whole revolution! The View was marvelous and we loved the experience. Would love it, if Management would put some restrictions on Children's behavior and parents responsibilities or at least set aside a section for unruly kids and ignorant parents. We would have loved it so much more if the two families and their eight obnoxious kids under the age of 9 would have found somewhere else to be.......but, you can't have it all, can you? And, we outlasted them--and probably overstayed our welcome in the process, but we were really enjoying the day!

Another worthy stopover. Take a ride up the tower and get the best view of the city here. Grab a bite at the revolving restaurant at the top of the seventh taller tower in the world.
