The Kuala Lumpur Tower (Menara Kuala Lumpur) is a joyous example of 21st-century Malaysian architecture. Rising dramatically above the cityscape like a silver bullet piercing the sky, this impressive telecommunications showstopper has become one of the most recognisable landmarks in the city. Dwarfing its nearest neighbours, this symbol of Malaysian enterprise is a staggering 421 metres in height and is a must on any discerning traveller’s itinerary.
Its location, smack bang in the centre of the city, makes it one of Kula Lumpur's most easily accessible tourist attractions and, unsurprisingly, also one of its most popular. Nature lovers in particular will be interested to note that the tower is sited in the middle of a rainforest, namely the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve. Home to a variety of tropical plants, animals and jungle trails, this reserve is well worth exploring en route to the tower.
Onto the main attraction: the observation deck of the tower sits at a healthy 276 metres above ground level and the panoramic view from here is simply out of this world! If you want to learn more about the cityscape as you ascend, the tower offers an audio guide that informs visitors about particular points of interest along the way. Available in 16 languages, this is a really useful tool. When you reach the top, take a breath as the magnificent 360° views wash over you.
Seeking somewhere unique for that special romantic interlude? Book a table at the revolving rooftop restaurant. The blend of magnificent views and top-class cuisine is guaranteed to give you a memorable evening. To rev the romance up a notch, why not make your way out onto the observation deck? Enjoy a breathtaking sunset before darkness falls and turns the city into a sparkling kaleidoscope of twinkling light.
Happily for those with a fear of heights, the tower has plenty of other attractions on offer. Soak up some culture at the Malaysian Cultural Village before making your way to the Blue Coral Aquarium. The little ones will love the Animal Zone while the XD Theater has something for all the family.
