Menara KL tower (Menara KL Tower) at a height of 421 meters is currently the seventh place among the world's tallest telecommunications structures, gradually yielding to the position of the newly built. At the time of the construction, in 1996, she ranked fifth.

At the top of the tower at the height of 276 meters above ground level is an observation deck with a 360 degrees, and even higher outdoor observation deck (access is payable). The tower and lookout above the bridge of the famous Petronas twin towers, breathtaking views over the town and the wonderful photos you provided, unless, of course, will not spoil weather. And here there is a new attraction SkyBox – glass cube at the height of the observation deck. We recommend you to buy a ticket for the open viewing as the view and the feeling there is much more exciting, and besides it includes both platforms.

If you have your photographic equipment, be sure to capture the tower at night with lights. For the original illumination Menara earned the nickname "Garden of the world". By the way, down at the foot of the Menard, is a small theme Park culture of Malaysia.

Many tourists prefer to visit exactly the KL tower instead of the Petronas towers, and familiarity with Petronas twin towers restrict photography on their background and visit the shopping malls at the base of the skyscrapers without up to the observation deck. Indeed, the views from the Menara open better, cost less, and there is such a rush, as Though. You can just come here and just buy the tickets up and not have to stand early in line at the cash register or order tickets on the website a few days before the visit, as is the case with Petronas.

💵 Entrance fee / ticket price: visit of the tower is divided into several variants which differ in the set of visited parks (rides) in the tower

Video-audio guide given at the entrance to the observation deck for free. The use of stationary binoculars on the observation deck for free.

⇪ How to get: Menara is located in the Central part of the city (the position of the KL tower on the map). If you stopped in the Bukit Bintang area or Chinatown, then to the tower, you can walk 15-20 minutes (distance in a straight line, slightly more than a kilometer). TV tower is visible from almost anywhere in the city, so you can simply follow in her direction. The entrance to the tower is from the street Jalan Punchak (at the intersection with Jalan P Ramlee) on the East side. The building itself is located on a hill, the ascent to which can be done on foot (but quite hard), take a taxi or wait for the free minibus which takes visitors taking in the entrance every 15 minutes.

If you have no desire to hoof it to the tower on foot, at a distance of about a mile from the station monorail Bukit Nanas and station Dan Wangi Kelana Jaya line city metro LRT Rail. Unfortunately, closer to the tower by public transport to get close in any way, because it is surrounded by a green Park. Another option is to drive directly up to the tower on the free tourist bus at the purple line GO KL (stop KL Tower).

In General, KL is a place where you can ride for a couple days, and that not everyone is interested, most I love the beach on holiday and not big cities. Especially with the kids in KL doing nothing at all. So if the question is to go to Kuala Lumpur or at one of the resorts in Thailand, then definitely Thailand. ...

Really laughed about the fact that there is no place to go. And as the world's largest bird Park, aquarium, butterfly Park, an amusement Park, a trip to the monkeys at the lighthouse, a trip to the Firefly Park, a science center where the aquarium is. Batu caves, the air bridge of the Petronas twin towers and much more. Only in Central Park for half a day to hang out with the kids.
We arrived in Kuala Lumpur with kids 2 times, because I do not have time to enjoy for the first. We from Peter, not from the village, the children toured already all of Europe, but Malaysia is their favorite country. ...

Glad you managed to laugh, but if to look objectively and not with emotions, some of you mentioned places I'd take my kids only to the bird Park, Menara KL tower or Petronas, and Petrosian. And all the rest more loosely, and not all of what you mentioned in Kuala Lumpur. So 1-2 days is possible, and to go on a whole holiday with kids in KL strongly disagree. ...

Also I agree, nothing funny, or just a person with a sense of humor something strange. Stay in a big city with the kids a couple of days later turning into the seat in front of the TV and the tablet, they're hard to pull out, quickly losing interest. Proven many times already, so to go to KL is not an option. As a minimum, you need to combine a visit to KL and the Islands to the beaches were, otherwise, neither the parents nor the children to relax, some whims are. ...

But in Kuala Lumpur great. Met tourists in Indonesia who told them that the city is not liked because he is not walking. It turned out that they just do not stay in the center and on the outskirts near some buildings, and that impression remained. And so it is possible to walk quietly, very pedestrian. ...

Hello Igor!
About the tower we've got all the details painted nowhere - including how to get.
From the towers to get, I passed. IMHO, suggest to the towers after Menard to walk. When they walk, and they get closer and more, I honestly for the first time goosebumps ran. ...

Good afternoon. The same situation in the beginning of March, in Nha Trang. Trying to figure out the budget for 2 adults and child 4 years old, but don't know how much to eat. Plz focus on the average price of food. 30-40 usd per person per day is enough? ...

Generally without problems. If he's not picky with seafood and exotic, and eat like a local, then this sum will suffice on all the day. ...
