  • I enjoyed going up the tower also of it was pretty expensive, the view was superb, you can see how the city is growing. I liked to walk on the glass bridge. The staff take picture of you nearly everywhere, it is a little annoying but can be a nice memory. We also had a walk in the forest, it was pleasant and funny to cross the wood bridges.
  • Nice venue. We've been here a few times. Once we took a donkey ride around the site; it's only a short ride, but fun. Food is good (we've eaten at the KL Tower twice) but it's expensive at c.RM250 per head. There is a small park there, but it was closed on the last occasion we visited, for renovation, I think). Have fun!
  • Have a little bit of everything. One thing to remember though, if you're going there during weekend, please come before 9.00 am. The throng of people at the tower after 11 is simply unbelievable. Also, if possible, go to the mini zoo. It's admittedly small compared to the other zoo or animal parks in Kuala Lumpur but the children (and your inner child) would probably like this better as you can interact with many animals here.
  • From here, the view was superb with much development and so many high-rise buildings. Many of the buildings stand out with good aesthetics, not to mention the Petronas Twin Towers. The glass panels of the Observation Deck (enclosed) were spotless and I could take clear pictures of the city. On the right of the KL Tower elevators, ground floor was a mini-theatre where one can take a rest, enjoy the air conditioning while viewing a video about KL Senior citizens and children showing my MyKad were entitled to lower admission fees (not sure about foreigners)
  • There's not much point to go to this tower UNLESS you manage to go to the rotation restaurant on the very top of the building to enjoy the 360 degrees view of KL city. Plus point if you can bungee jump, skydive from there, I can only imagine the experience as exceptionally exhilarating!
