Menara - Kuala Lumpur Tower

On day 2, returning from the Batu caves, we proceeded straight to the Kuala Lumpur tower, locally known as Menara. This is a radio/TV tower constructed in the mid nineties, rising 421 metres from the ground (including the antenna) and is the 7th tallest telecommunications tower in the world.The roof, which tourists can visit through an elevator, is at 335 metres. From the roof, you can get a bird's eye of Kuala Lumpur. There is also a revolving restaurant on the roof, but we couldn't visit it.

Entrance fee: Apart from the observation deck, there are other attractions here like F1 simulator, open deck etc, so pricing depends on the package. The observation deck, which we went for, costs 49 RM/adult and 29 RM/child for foreigners. There is also a small cultural village, with a mini zoo, at the base of the tower and it is free with any package that you buy.

By the way, we found a Hop On Hop Off bus on return though we didn't hop on since Metro is faster..
