“Great view, great tower”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

KL Menara is the third tallest tower in the world with a height of 450 feet. One is warmly greeted on arrival at the tower entrance and after taking the ticket, is escorted for the lift. After reaching the summit, one enters to a gallery which has glass cover on all sides. By walking in the gallery, one can see the different splendid views of KL city. All places such as Twin towers, National mosque, KL cricket stadium, Berjaya Tines square and other landmarks are well seen from the gallery. There is a revolving restaurant at the highest point, for which advanced booking us recommended. Buffet dinner here costs 200 MYR (65 USD) along with entry ticket of 100 MYR from the tower base. There is free shuttle service for reaching KL tower from KLCC.

“Menara is a place to see KL landscape”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

We didn't get entry tickets for the twin towers, so we decided to visit Menara tower. It completely paid off as we could see the landscape of the Kuala Lumpur and also the twin tower from a distant height. It was a treat for my eyes and my Camera worked restless to capture the beautiful landscape.

I strongly suggest this place for a morning visit.

“Great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Having been to the Petronas Towers and found we should have booked to go up, we decided to see KL from the Menara instead. From the shuttle up the hill, through the ticket area and up in the very fast lift the whole experience is very efficient. The views are great, and it's a good alternative as you get to be able to see the Petronas Towers while you're up there!

“Great views from atop......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Also known as Minara KL , you get grest views of KL from atop including the KLCC.
Worth the visit. Quite close to the KL Bird park , hence advisable to go there when you plan for KL bird park. Views are excellent and worth the money you pay.
