Tower

KL Tower (Menara Kuala Lumpur)

At 421 meters high, this is the tallest telecommunication tower in Southeast Asia and the 7th tallest in the world. Admire some of the best views of Kuala Lumpur from the 276-metre-high outdoor observation deck. There’s also an indoor observation deck, a sky box with a glass floor, and a bar/café to purchase drinks and snacks. 

After admiring the views, visit the tower’s revolving restaurant, Atmosphere 360, or even the aquarium or mini-zoo downstairs. The tower is located within the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve, the last untouched tropical rainforest in Kuala Lumpur.

The tower is considered a huge technological and architectural achievement, cementing Malaysia’s place on the world stage. It is now one of the most visited tourist attractions in Kuala Lumpur. 

An annual 'Towerthon' race is held where participants run up the tower's 2,058 stairs to the Megaview Banquet Hall.

  • Organised flow of visitors and relatively short wait times.
Could Be Better:
  • Overpriced drinks and snacks at Sky Café.
  • Overpriced photos in the Sky Box.
