A Visit To KL Tower (Menara KL)

A Visit To KL Tower (Menara KL) – KL Tower is one of the building that beautify up the Kuala Lumpur skyline after the Petronas Twin Towers. It’s actually a telecommunications and broadcasting tower that looks taller than the Petronas Twin Towers from far because it’s located on a hill – Bukit Nanas.

I am bet many of you have been to the Petronas Twin Towers, I mean the bottom of it, but did not go to the KL Tower before. I know it’s probably because it’s not easy to access by public transport. Last week, brother brought me and his girlfriend to the tower for a visit.

The entrance is RM35 for Malaysian citizen and RM45 for non-local and included a walk in the observatory zone and a little fun time with either a ride on the pony, or a visit to the super mini animal house, or play the F1 simulation. I’ve got to say, it’s not really a worth visit because it’s just a view and the fun part is just stupid and lame. You will know later.

Audio guide is available too.

It’s a good visit on top because you can take a good view on the city, yet not worthwhile. Sigh. It’s really not international standard although the staffs were very friendly, greeting you from bottom to top. Hmm. It’s just a small round at the observatory zone which takes about half an hour.

Telescope is free to use and there’s mini souvenirs stalls on top. It was going to rain that day, but still get a glimpse of the Klang Valley.

From top, only then I know that the city planning is kinda, err, not organized. It’s like building here and there with only a few significant architecture. Lalalalalala.

After taking photos, touring on top, we went down to get a drinks before proceeding to the F1 simulation that was included in our ticket. This is so bullshit that it’s just a steering wheel controller connected to a computer. Maybe the software is good, but I still didn’t get the feel of F1, the chair was not moving, the sound was not loud as if I am at the circuit, it just feels like playing a computer game. Hmmmmm. Lame.


45 minutes and here goes our RM35.

The lobby/entrance.

Bye bye. You can check out the website for more information.
