Kuala Lumpur Tower (KL Tower)
14 April 2007
I had a trip to KL Tower which organized by the Sports and Recreational Club. The KL Tower is a 421m high telecommunications and broadcasting tower and was built in May 1996. It’s such a shame that I only manage to visit this fourth tallest tower after 10 years ago it was built.
KL people like me don’t bother to visit places around KL.
Well, some facts about its height. The four tallest towers in the world are CN Tower in Canada at 553m, Ostankino Tower in Russia at 537m, Shanghai Tower in China at 468m followed by Menara Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia at 421m.
We went up to the observation deck only, even though there’s higher deck where the rotating restaurant located. We manage to get a bird’s eye view of the city.

By using the telescope, we can see Eyes On Malaysia clearly. It’s a new tourist spot in KL.
Oldest tree around the tower, 106 years up to date.
We’re heading to the Nature Park. Located around KL Tower, in fact it was built on the Nanas Hill.
Finally, our big group picture. It’s memorable trip even it’s short. It would be difficult if we want to organize in this way, because KL people like me will say, ‘aiyo…KL tower only…anytime also can go…then when I look back, the tower is already 10 years’ old. Haha.
