Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur Guide (B): City Guide Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, is a diverse city which characterize itself by all kinds of architecture. There is something to do for everyone: from shopping malls to several viewpoints and from food streets to cultural places. In this article I’ll tell you about must-sees and must-do’s of Kuala Lumpur.

The KL Tower is a communications tower, which you can find in the middle of the city center of Kuala Lumpur. It’s the 7th tallest telecommunication tower in the world and the tallest in Southeast Asia. With it’s height of 421 meters, you can have some panoramic views over the city.

Against payment, you can visit the KL Tower and go all the way up to enjoy some beautiful views over Kuala Lumpur. In the city, there are different kind of possibilities to go to a “viewpoint” (KL Tower, Petronas Towers, Heli Pad). We’ve asked several locals beforehand which building was the most impressive when it comes to views and they all told us to go to the KL Tower.

There is an observation deck you can visit, which is located at a height of 276 meters. From here, you can already have some amazing views behind glass. There are also several, little souvenir shops. If you would like to visit the observation deck, you’ll pay MYR 49 per adult. Children pay MYR 29 per person. The sky deck is even higher, located at a level of 421 meters,and this is the deck where you can enjoy the views outside. In this way, you can also make some better photos. Because of the fact that this deck is located higher and outside, of course it’s also more expensive. An adult pays MYR 99 and a child pays MYR 52. Since the weather wasn’t that great while we were in Kuala Lumpur (it was hot, but also very cloudy), we decided to visit only the observation desk. ......
