KL Tower

Majestically poised at a breathtaking height of 421m, KL Tower doubles as KL's best known icon. Standing boldly atop Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve, it is the 6th tallest telecommunication tower in the world. Built to improve the quality of telecommunication and broadcasting transmission, it was completed in May 1996.

The observation deck which is the main tourist attraction is located at 276m above ground level. It is the perfect place for a 360 degrees view of Kuala Lumpur skyline.

It is a good spot too to capture the iconic Petronas Twin Towers from various angles.

It cost RM29 for Malaysian citizen to go all the way up to the observation deck.  Foreigners on the other hand need to pay nearly twice what the local is paying to get here.

There is no time limit here and one can virtually be here as long as it takes. Frankly, I would not mind coming here on a regular basis if the entrance fee is somewhat reasonable.

There are a lot of kiosks selling souvenirs at this deck and they strictly enforce the no photo policy on their merchandise.

Information on other telecommunication towers in the world is also on display at the observation deck.

Recently, they opened up the Building Service Floor (TH05) for the public which offers visitor with an open space view at the balcony. One will need to fork out RM99 for this package, regardless whether one is a Malaysian citizen or foreigner.
