KL TOWER

Known as one of Malaysia’s most popular landmarks, the Kuala Lumpur Tower (KL Tower) stands proudly at 421 metres in the heart of the city. It offers a spectacular viewing deck located at 276 metres that boasts a gleaming view of the city, which makes it a well-loved tourist attraction during the day and night. The tower also houses a revolving restaurant, where guests can enjoy delicious dinners and high teas while witnessing the breathtaking panorama of KL’s dazzling skyline.


HISTORY
Constructed on 1 March 1995, the KL Tower’s overall design was intended to reflect human’s quest for perfection in life. It is the 7th tallest freestanding tower in the world. Its architectural style incorporates a blend of Arabic scripts, Islamic floral elements and Islamic tiles that echo Malaysia’s vibrant Islamic heritage, and its eminent globular pinnacle was inspired by the gasing, a classic Malaysian spinning top.

After all facilities and amenities were fully installed, the doors to the KL tower were officially opened to the public on 23 July 1996. Apart from serving as a tourist attraction, races are also held annually at the tower, where participants race up the stairs to the top. It also acts as the Islamic falak observatory to observe the crescent moon, which symbolises the start of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadhan, Syawal and Zulhijar.

FUN FACTS
You can enjoy the panoramic view of the city from the enclosed space of the Observation Deck, but if you want a higher view, you can go up to the Skydeck, which is an open-air area. Those who are seeking a bit of adventure can enjoy an adrenaline rush at the SkyBox, which is an extended part of the Skydeck. This fully-transparent glass box is 300 metres above the ground and offers you a vertigo view of Kuala Lumpur. If you have a fear of heights, you might want to skip this.
