Things To Do In KL Tower

Located at Jalan P. Ramlee, Kuala Lumpur, this 7th freestanding tower in the world is one of the skyscrapers that Malaysians should be proud of. The construction of KL Tower was completed in 1995. KL Tower was fully open to the public on 1st October 2016.

About KL Tower

Measured from ground to the roof of the KL Tower pod, it is 335 metres above ground. Including antenna, KL Tower stands proudly at 421 metres from ground level. There are 1,850 steps of stairs and 4 elevators to get to the top.

KL Tower was used as communication purposes at first. As years pass by, it is used for other activities or to carry out events. Sports events such as KL Tower International Towerthon Challenge, KL Tower International (BASE) Jump and many more are held here every year.

Before the beginning of Ramadhan, Syawal or Zulhijjah, KL Tower acts as Islamic falak observatory too. KL Tower is high enough to observe crescent moon that marks the beginning of this Islamic months.

If you come to Kuala Lumpur, the KL Tower is one of Malaysia’s attractions that you should visit. Apart from the Observatory Deck, KL Tower also has the Skydeck, the famous Revolving Restaurant and the latest addition to the tower; Skybox.

KL Tower Observatory Deck and Skydeck

KL Tower Observatory Deck and Skydeck are located at the 86th and 90th floor respectively.

If you would like to view Kuala Lumpur within the safe confinement of glass and through a viewfinder, the Observatory Deck is for you. If you are more adventurous and prefer the open air to view Kuala Lumpur the Skydeck is perfect for you. You can purchase some souvenirs at a souvenir shop at the Observatory Deck. Both floors gives you 360 view of Kuala Lumpur.

I personally prefer the Skydeck. Although the ledge is quite wide, the view of Kuala Lumpur is breathtaking from up there.

Get “High” In The New KL Tower Skybox

KL Tower

The KL Tower Skybox is most definitely one of my favourite attractions in KL Tower.

KL Tower Skybox is relatively new, opened end of May 2016. It is at 310 metres above ground.

Skybox is made of transparent acrylic glass. It extends out from the Skydeck Ledge. There are two Skyboxes in KL Tower. Located on the same level but on opposite sides, the background are also different. One Skybox overlooks KLCC and another overlooks Wisma Budiman.

Fitting a maximum of 6 people, you can have your friend accompany you in the box if you’re scared. But if you’re brave, go ahead and do some interesting poses for the camera!

There is no extra ticket price for Skybox. You can go to Skybox if you purchase the Skydeck ticket.
