The Kuala Lumpur Tower

Since it is my second time in Malaysia, I wanted to explore attractions that I’ve never been into and found the KL Tower in Jalan P Ramlee, Kuala Lumpur, 50250 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Kuala Lumpur tower is used mainly for communication purposes however there are activities that you can do here. You can almost see it from the Petronas Twin Towers that you thought you can just walk to get there. However, it is not advisable to do so as there were no streets that you can walk to. Glad we took a cab!

Aside from the Observation Deck that we planned to go, they also offer open deck, eco tour, blue coral aquarium, f1 simulation, X D theater, megaview banquet deck that can host parties, meetings, weddings, etc. and a revolving restaurant.

Attraction rates as of December 2016 are below:

Observation Deck
Normal Price :
Adult – RM 52
Child – RM 31

Open Deck (13 years & above)
Normal Price – RM 105

They also have combo ticket prices to choose from. Operating hours at 9:00am until 10:00pm.

Revolving restaurant or Atmosphere 360 offers lunch buffet in two sessions 11:30am-1pm & 1:30pm-3pm, tea at 3:30pm-5:30pm and dinner buffet in two sessions 6:30pm-8:30pm & 9pm-11pm daily from Monday to Sunday.

Lunch rate for adult is RM 97.10 Nett while dinner rate for adult is RM 218.30 Nett.

  • If you want to get a discount, buy your ticket online at least 7 days before your visit. I remember we got ours at 20% discount.
  • If you have some luggage with you that you don’t want to carry at all times while inside Legoland then, they have lockers designated outside or inside the theme park. Rent for the whole day is 20 RM for a small locker and 40 RM for the big ones.
  • Bring umbrella, cap/hat, or anything that can protect you with the unpredictable weather.
  • Bring plenty of water for the scorching heat and something that you can eat. But don’t worry if you forget, they have plenty of stores inside.
  • By the way, if you forget to exchange your money to their currency, do not worry they accept any currency but of course with their defined exchange rate.

Malaysia 2.0

It was my third time to go to Malaysia but my second time to go to Johor Bahru and Kuala Lumpur.

It was Chinese New Year and we had a very long weekend to spare so we opted to visit a nearby country.

We visited Legoland and stayed overnight at Johor Bahru. The next day we took the bus going to Kuala Lumpur. I thought that this trip would run smoothly but it turned out the odds was not in my favor after all.

First, we had a hard time going to Genting highlands because there were a lot of people going there that time. There was a long queue at Genting Skyway station and teksi (cab) drivers were charging us 40 MYR, by the way we took a cab going there at 35 MYR from Pudu Sentral.

Genting Skyway Station

Indeed patience is a virtue but I’m a woman of no patience. Haha.

Things to do at Bintan Indonesia

What an awesome feeling to relax on the beach, sit on a hammock, hear the waves, and read a nice book. However, if this is not your kind of stuff, there are other things to keep you occupied at Bintan in Indonesia. Aside from the beautiful beaches Bintan has to offer, there are many other things that you can do at this place.

Throwback Thursday: Manila Ocean Park

Time really flies fast, it is Christmas season again. I haven’t even started buying gifts for my family. Oh no!

I can still remember last year around this time, we went to Manila Ocean Park. It is located at 666, Behind Quirino Grandstand, Luneta, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines.

How to get here:

The fastest and easiest way to get there is by taking a cab. Haha.

I’m pretty sure you can also take a jeepney but definitely you would need to walk.

And so because I can’t help it, I’ve searched on how to get here. Hope that helps. 🙂

Rates:

You can select a package from 3 to as many as 12 attractions. For as low as 400PHP up to 1100PHP.

We bought the package with three attractions: Oceanarium, Trails to Antarctica, and the Symphony of Lights which is an evening show. Plus we also bought a ticket to see the Jellies Exhibit for an additional fee. We initially wanted to see the All Star Bird Show attraction however, that time it is not operating.

At present, they have added more attractions to their list so I guess I have enough reason to visit the place again. 🙂

I just stopped to admire the view. 🙂

Batu Caves Malaysia

Since our time is limited, we opted to ride a cab/teksi from Gombak station rather than taking the Go Genting bus, which costs 60 MYR so if there’s 3 of you, that’s 20 MYR each.

And because we don’t want to waste a precious time, we also asked our cab/teksi driver to take us to Batu Caves, which is a 45-minutes drive from Genting Highlands, for another 60 MYR.

We also told him to wait for us after climbing the 272 steps to magnificent Batu Caves and take us back to Gombak station for 20 MYR.

How to get here without taking a cab/teksi? See it here.

Some Tips:

  • Much better to go here early in the morning or maybe late afternoon because its freaking hot at noon, my friend almost collapsed
  • If cannot be avoided, bring something to cover you up like umbrella or hat
  • Bring lots of water or refreshments
  • And towel to make you dry
  • Also you can encounter monkeys on your way up and down, so look after your belongings
So excited! My friend and I are teasing who's gonna reach the top first.
