KL Tower

Menara Kuala Lumpur or "KL Tower" is one of the tallest concrete towers in the world. Situated on higher ground atop Bukit Nanas at 94m above sea level, it is on whole higher than the Petronas Twin Towers with its top being at 515 metres above sea level. Although the tower itself stands at 421m
Menara Kuala Lumpur is the tallest tower in Southeast Asia and ranks fifth amongst the tallest telecommunications towers in the world
The viewing gallery is well worth a visit and you also get an audio commentary telling you what you're looking at...The view on a clear day is spectacular.For some reason tourists pay more than locals.
Close to the Tower you can find Bukit Nanas Recreational Park and City Forest Reserve an area of walking trails amongst some large trees.
There are many different trails to follow and some nice big trees to look at-but be careful of the mosquitoes.....For a while you can escape the concrete jungle and experience the real thing,right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur
