Menara Kuala Lumpur rising from the crest of Bukit Nanas at 421metre tall, offers the best city views in Kuala Lumpur.

Surrounded by a pocket of primary rainforest, this lofty spire is the world’s fourth-highest telecommunications tower. The bulb at the top is inspired by ‘Gasing’,a traditional Malay spinning top toy, contains a revolving restaurant, an interior observation deck at 276m and, most thrilling of all, an open deck at 300m, access to which is weather dependent.

Menara Kuala Lumpur also acts as the Islamic falak observatory to observe the crescent moon which marks the beginning of Muslim month of Ramadhan, Syawal, and Zulhijjah, to celebrate fasting month of Ramadhan, Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Aidiladha. Menara Kuala Lumour is the highest viewpoint in Kuala Lumpur that is open to the public. A free shuttle bus runs from the gate on Jln Punchak, or you can walk up through the KL Forest Eco Park and its new canopy walkway.

I have been to Menara Kuala Lumpur a couple of times for business purpose, but never for leisure and haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy the view from the tower itself until last week during Menara Kuala Lumpur Media Nite 2016 where they spent time with the members of the media and tourism players from all corners of Malaysia to appreciate all the publicities and the unconditional support that has been given by the members of the media to Menara Kuala Lumpur.

Breathtaking view from Menara Kuala Lumpur at night. The picture was taken as soon as I was seated at my designated table with the rest of the media. The city looks like a huge glittering jewellery box, don’t you think?

Certificate of recognition given to members of the media as a token of appreciation for their unconditional supports and contributions in elevating Menara KL as one of the most preferred tourism destination in Malaysia.

Being a member of the media, I often work behind the scene, away from the glitz and glams. It’s surely a nice change that we are being appreciated and recognized that night. Thank you Menara KL for the amazing evening.
