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.

Mesmerizing Malaysia

It is my birth month and I chose to celebrate it out of the country. Together with my travel buddy we conquered Malaysia for two days.

So here’s the plan, we’ll be visiting Legoland, Genting Highlands, and Batu Caves plus the famous Bukit Bintang walk. However, because I was so busy with work I wasn’t able to do an in-depth research about our itinerary especially going to Legoland Malaysia.

That is why our first day was such a waste, I didn’t know that Legoland was so far away from Kuala Lumpur. We traveled almost nine hours from KLCC to Johor Bahru and back. Well, lesson learned! Always always ask how many minutes or hours is the travel time which I failed to ask after buying a bus ticket going to Johor.

For those who would like to know how to get from Kuala Lumpur to Legoland:

  • Take the railway going to Bandar Tasik Selatan station and look for TBS or Terminal Bersepadu Selatan, alternatively you can go to Pudu Sentral terminal
  • Buy a bus ticket which cost 34.30 MYR
  • A 4-5 hours travel time before reaching Larkin Sentral
  • At Larkin Sentral you can see shuttle bus of Legoland (Bus # LM1) every thirty minutes between 9:00 am and midday. Return buses will run from Legoland to Larkin from 4:00 pm until 6:30pm from Sunday to Friday. On Saturdays, school holidays and public holidays they will run until 8:30pm. Each round trip will cost RM12

*My two cents: leave early and better if you book for a place to stay overnight because it’s kinda tiring, really.

Indeed, that’s the downside of DIY traveling. I will be posting our 1-day itinerary in Malaysia, which is supposedly a 2-day itinerary but because our first day was an epic fail we squeezed everything for a day and it was a success. Haha.
