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.

Some Tips:

  • 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.

Review: Hotel Nusa CT Johor Bahru Malaysia

Hotel Nusa CT is located at 15, Jalan Nip 2/8, 81550 Gelang Patah, Johor, Malaysia. It is a 4 storey building just 10-minutes away from Legoland Malaysia.

So if you are looking for a cheaper accommodation near Legoland Malaysia, you may want to consider staying here. You can only take a cab/teksi going here and the driver charged us a fixed price of 25 MYR. However, if you are going to Malaysia the next day via bus then, I would suggest to look for accommodation near the terminals.

An overnight stay ranges from 208-258 MYR for off-peak season and 218-278 MYR for peak season like school break and holidays.

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.

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

One Night at Johor Bahru Malaysia

One day, we just decided to go to Johor Bahru in Malaysia for an overnight stay. It is my first time to travel to Malaysia from Singapore, but not really my first time to go there. And the memories are still quite painful, why? Read my post Mesmerizing Malaysia.

That time, we were staying around Toa Payoh so we just rode the North-South Line and alight at Woodlands station. We looked for the Bus Interchange just below Woodlands MRT station.

One Night at Johor Bahru

We queued at Bus No. 950.
