Menara Kuala Lumpur or KL Tower is one of the tallest concrete towers in the world, standing at 421m and built with 45,000 cubic metres of sturdy concrete.

Designed with vertical ribs on the external surface, the Tower weighs 100,000 tonnes and was built on no-piling, freestanding land. Menara Kuala Lumpur opulently stands as the tallest tower in Southeast Asia.

Situated atop Bukit Nanas at 94m above sea level, it is on higher ground than the Petronas Twin Towers.

Menara Kuala Lumpur ranks fourth amongst the tallest telecommunications towers in the world and was constructed over a period of four years and completed in May 1996.

Menara Kuala Lumpur is designed to withstand wind pressures of up to 90mph. Menara Kuala Lumpur is a member of the prestigious World Federation of Great Towers.

The tourist highlight of Menara Kuala Lumpur is the panoramic view from the Observation Deck. It provides the best view of Kuala Lumpur, much better than from Petronas Tower Skybridge.

Skybridge is however free, while Menara Kuala Lumpur requires entrance fees which change accordingly to their promotion package.

It normally ranged from RM12-RM15 per person, and could be higher if you decide to take a technical guide and a full package that include a buffet meal at their famous Revolving Restaurant.

Menara Kuala Lumpur (KL Tower) Observation Deck is open daily from 9am-10pm.

Seri Angkasa Revolving Restaurant is open daily at 12noon-2.30pm for lunch; and 6.30pm-11pm for dinner.
