5 of the Best Cheap Rooftop Bars in 2019
Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia and home to a beautiful and vibrant skyline. One of the best ways to view it is at a rooftop bar that doesn’t cost a fortune.
The guide below provides pricing, location and business hours for our favorite cheap rooftop bars in Kuala Lumpur. All of the bars we suggest are in the range of RM 200 – 300 (50 75 USD) for a small meal and drinks for two.1. Fuego, Troika Sky Dining @ The Troika, Persiaran KLCC Image from Facebook by Pixelaw Photography.
Fuego, Troika Sky Dining is one of the most popular sky bars around Kuala Lumpur city. Its strategic location offers a great view of KL city. The view and quality of F&B here is none to second.
However, they are also one of the slightly pricier ones. Cocktails range from RM38-46 (excluding 10% service and 6% government tax). Desserts start from RM30 while the lowest food price is at RM28 for a guacamole.
Music is slow and not too loud. Thus, it is a good place for friends to catch up and enjoy the city’s view. Best to contact Fuego for reservations a week earlier as they seems to be always be full.
Opens daily : 6pm-10.30pm
2. Man Tao Bar @ The Stripes Hotel, Jalan Kamunting View of Man Tau Bar. The image is taken from Flickr.
This bar is currently the most tranquil sky bar to enjoy the sunset as it is relatively new and not known to many. So, if you are in KL now or soon, grab the chance to visit this bar sky bar before it gets overcrowded. Prices are lower than Fuego for sure.
Patrons of Man Tao Bar informs that the cocktails here are mainly made with Chinese beer, Tsingtao. Next level of beer mixology can be found here. Does Man Tao Bar serve man tao (Chinese buns)? Yes, they do! As per their website:
“Enjoy cloud-like Chinese steamed buns with a variety of delicious filling best paired with Tsing Tao beer cocktail.”
Open from Tuesdays-Saturdays: 7pm-12am
3. Heli Lounge @ Menara KH, Jalan Sultan Ismail Image by Sabrina Tan.
My all-time favourite sky bar in KL city! They definitely offer the best 360-degree view of KL city at the top of an actual helipad.
It is reasonably priced especially for a bottle of wine that permits entrance for 2 patrons. A bottle of wine is priced as low as RM180 (approx 50 USD). If you are only keen to get cocktails or some other drinks, it all starts from RM15 (approx. 4 USD). However, I do not suggest to try out their main meals there. Their food is not up to my expectations.
Remember to call in for a reservation if you would like to guarantee a seat as it is uber popular even among locals thanks to its reasonable prices. You can either call (+60 3-2110 5034) or drop them a message on Facebook to make your reservations.
Friday & Saturday: 5pm-3am
4. Canopy Rooftop Lounge & Bar @ Jalan Mayang, Kampung Baru Image from Canopy Rooftop Lounge.
Canopy may not be a sky-high kind of sky bar but it is the one and only rooftop bar where you can enjoy KLCC Twin Towers view with shisha. The average cost for 2 people here is RM100 which is 25 USD.
They have self-proclaimed to be the best cocktails and shisha lounge. I support this self-proclamation as I enjoyed their cocktails better than any of the other sky bars.The only rooftop bar that offers you shisha, alcohol, food and plays dance music. Image from Canopy Rooftop Lounge.
For a sweet cocktail, try out their Paloma which is a tequila cocktail.
5. Skybar @ Traders Hotel, KLCC By Renek78 (Own work) via Wikimedia Commons.
Traders Hotel is right opposite the KLCC Twin Towers and thus, offers you a great view of the twin towers from its sky bar. Within the sky bar is the hotel’s swimming pool!
So, in this sky bar, you can enjoy your drinks while you swim as long as it is before 7 pm. Swimming pool section closes off at 7 pm but the area is open until 3 am.
Skybar is not as cheap as no.2,3 nor 4 and price is relatively comparable to Fuego. However, if all you are looking for is a sky bar for a great view, swimming pool, dance area and great music, this will be the place to go to.
There is a small dance area in between the DJ console is the swimming pool. Be careful not to get drunk here or risk falling into the swimming pool. *Jokes*

Rooftop bars in KL | Outlets
Never mind KL’s hot and humid weather or the risk of sudden downpours. Here are sixteen rooftop bars to see dazzling city lights from on high with a drink (or two) in hand.
KL City Centre
Cielo Sky Dining and Lounge

There is a huge pool right at the centre; unfortunately you’re not allowed to take a dip. The bar is chic and the interior is all around classy. Sure, on a weekend you’ll find the space packed with glamorous (read: showy) party-goers but they’ve got quite a decent drink list and nice nibbles. If you don’t want to crash with the masses, make the mission mid-week for a low-key drink and you’ll have a much better time admiring the spectacular views.

So, my dear tourists, I bring to your attention an overview of high-rise bars and restaurants from a Russian guide in Kuala Lumpur. It is no secret that when visiting another metropolis, many of you want to enjoy a magnificent view and, at the same time, have a tasty meal. In our glorious city there are many skyscrapers, Kuala Lumpur is very famous for this! And on the top floors, and sometimes on the roofs of many of them, there are wonderful bars and restaurants.With regret, I saw that there is not a single sensible overview of these places in Russian on the Internet. I want to correct this annoying misunderstanding, especially considering that I myself have a weakness for high-rise restaurants and during my own travels I always try to visit such places. So, let’s start with establishments that offer open areas, which are especially valuable for amateur and professional photographers. It’s no secret that it is difficult to photograph normally through glass, and even at night.
Highlights common to almost all high-rise restaurants in KL – dress code .Do not wear shorts, flip flops, T-shirts, etc. I advise you to dress in a casual style. No one asks you for tuxedos and suits, but pants and closed-toe sneakers are highly desirable and sometimes required.
The second important point is weather conditions. If it is raining outside, some outdoor areas may not be available. Nothing prevents you from refusing a reservation at such an establishment or postponing a visit to a restaurant later. In most cases, all high-rise open-air restaurants also have indoor air-conditioned and rain-protected areas.
Overview of high-rise bars and restaurants in Kuala Lumpur.
Vertigo Bar @ Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur 59 Floor
Horizon Grill @ Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur 58 Floor
Address – 59th floor, Banyan Tree Residence, 2, jalan Conlay
Tel : +603 2113 1822
Opening hours – from Monday to Sunday 18.00 to 24.00
Dress code – until 20.00 you can wear shorts and casual, after 20.00 men need to wear pants and closed shoes
Kitchen – bar and snacks.
This is the tallest bar in Malaysia with a stunning outdoor terrace with a view of about 300 degrees. From here, a stunning view of the Twin Towers, the TV Tower and all the main skyscrapers of the city opens up. The most important thing is that climbing here does not require any deposit or mandatory amount spent – it is enough to order something, especially before 21.00, when the bulk of the visitors arrives. A great place to see the sunset, for example, which we usually have from 19.30 to 20.00 throughout the year. Watch on the Internet in advance the exact time of sunset for your date.
You do not need to book tables, but if you want not just to have a cocktail and take pictures of the views, but just sit at a table and order snacks, you will have to spend the obligatory amount of more than $ 350.
I highly recommend this place as a very high quality but budget alternative to dinner at a restaurant on TV. Just once again I will repeat myself for important occasions and this place is not suitable as a tasty and hearty dinner.
Except for a meal on the floor below at the excellent Horizon Grill on the 58th floor, but with a view through the glass. This is a gourmet restaurant and the prices there are appropriate, and the portions are most likely not large, but for the well-off tourists or for whatever reason, you can afford it. Curiously, the restaurant on the 58th floor is open from 6.30 to 10.30, from 12.00 to 15.00 and from 18.30 to 22.30, so you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner here with a stunning view of the city. This is an important point, because apart from the restaurant on the 38th floor at the Hyatt Hotel, no one serves breakfast in a city with panoramic views from such a breathtaking height.Keep in mind.
Heli Lounge Bar
Address – 34th floor, Menara KH, jalan Sultan Ismail
Tel : +603 2110 5034 or +6012 317 0925
Opening hours – Sunday to Wednesday 17.00 to 24.00, Thursday from 17.00 to 1.00 am, Friday and Saturday from 17.00 to 2.00 am.
This restaurant is located on the 34th floor of a high-rise building in the center of Kuala Lumpur, but its main feature is that the restaurant has a bar on the roof of a skyscraper and, in fact, this is a real helipad! Climbing there takes the stairs and you find yourself directly on the roof – without walls and fences.A fresh breeze caresses your face and you feel like the King of the city. This feeling is not comparable to the feeling in a restaurant on the famous Kuala Lumpur TV Tower. This is much cooler, albeit lower by itself. Above, there is a stunning view of the famous Twin Towers and the TV Tower. And also for the whole city shining in lights. In case the weather turns bad, you can go downstairs to the 34th floor.
Important nuances and moments, before going up to the roof, you will be forced to make an order in the restaurant on the 34th floor.The restaurant has a dress code – no shorts and slippers! And when booking a table, specify the conditions – on different days, especially on Friday-Saturday – it is often required to spend at least 150 ringit per person, especially if you plan to arrive later than 21.00. Well, go ahead – enjoy the views!
A la carte cuisine, nothing super special, average portions, western food, solid and tasty. Main courses are only served in the lounge on the 34th floor, please keep this in mind. But in such places you yourself understand the main thing, this is the view.
Fuego Restaurant by Troika Sky dining
Address – Floor 23A, Tower B, The Troika, 19, Persiaran KLCC
Tel – +603 2162 0886 http://www.troikaskydining.com/fuego/
Opening hours Mon – Sun, 6.30 pm until 20.30 and from 20.30 to 22.30 Last order at 22.30 You can sit until 0.00. And on Friday and Saturday – until 1 am.
The next high-rise restaurant in my review with an open area is the Fuego restaurant of Peruvian and South American cuisine, comfortably located on the 23A (this is the 24th) floor of a high-rise building with some Russian name Troika.There really are three towers – A, B and C. You – to tower B. On the 23A floor there are three more restaurants of different cuisines, but it is Fuego that has a magnificent open terrace with a beautiful frontal view of the famous Twin Towers without windows and glass.
The restaurant serves alcohol and offers fine Peruvian cuisine. I especially recommend ceviche and guacamole! I really like pies – arepas. Well it all goes with the Mexican Corona beer. Table reservations are required. The place is very popular.Dress code – pants and closed shoes for men, closed shoes for women – even sneakers and jeans, but just not slippers!
Roofino Skydining @ Bar
Address – 34th floor, Menara Trillion KL, 338, jalan Tun Razak, Kampung Datuk Keramat
Opening hours – Monday – Friday from 11.00 to 0.00, Saturday and Sunday from 16.00 to 1.00
Telephone – +6012 216 16 34 mobile
On the 34th floor of a brand new Trillion high-rise building, the next in our review high-rise bar-restaurant with a beautiful open terrace has recently been perfectly located.The restaurant has good international cuisine and a good selection of spirits. It is advisable to arrive before 21.00 – there are happy hours with discounts on beer and cocktails. When you call and book a table, you can check if there are any special offers. The dress code is the same as in all high-rise restaurant bars. The view is decent, but one Tower slightly covers the other. Nobody forced me to order for any amount – they took pizza and two beers for the promotion. I left 20-25 dollars, I don’t remember exactly.But it was delicious and the view was wonderful.
Deep Blue rooftop bar.
Address – 51 floor, Face Platinum suites, jalan Sultan Ismail
Opening hours – Mon – Thu 11.00 – 1.00; Fri – Sat 11.00 – 3.00;
Sun 11.00 – 1.00
Phone – +603 2168 1671
The newest high-rise restaurant-bar, located on the 51st floor of the popular Face Platinum apart-hotel, offers you a stunning view of both the Twin Towers and the TV Tower.Access to it goes through the famous rooftop pool – the best view pool in the city. So you will have a great opportunity to arrange a wonderful photo shoot without glasses and glare. From the bar itself, views through the glass, but you will have access to open areas. A huge plus of this place is that it starts working at 11 in the morning. The overwhelming majority of species restaurants and bars are evening – night. This is probably the only open high-rise bar in the central part of Kuala Lumpur, which can be visited almost in the morning and 7 days a week.
There is also a Sky Bar at the Traders Hotel, but it gives a view through the glass. I will describe it below.
Man Tao Bar in Stripes Hotel
Address – Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur, 25, jalan Kamunting
Opening hours – Tuesday – Saturday 18.00 to 0.00
A wonderful new hotel in a cozy area of the central part of the city. Not a high-rise bar, like the previous ones in my review, but the place is original and has not yet entered even the English-language reviews of high-rise restaurants.Such an exclusive to himself. The bar is located on the roof of a not-so-tall, brand-new hotel and provides an excellent view of the TV Tower and the central part of the city without windows or glass. It seems to me that this is more important and more valuable than the glass bars and restaurants located on the 30th floors and above. Plus, there are always some promotions and special offers for alcohol, which is usually rarely found in promoted high-altitude places. On the menu, there are just snacks for alcohol, the place is not for gourmets, but cute, original and not too crowded.
Rooftop bar on 31-st floor in Ibis Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
I can recommend this place for budget tourists who want to enjoy the view of the business part of Kuala Lumpur, skyscrapers and Twin Towers and spend a minimum of money, or even completely free of charge. To do this, you will arrive at the Ibis Hotel Kuala Lumpur after 16.00. Sit comfortably in the elevator and go up to the 31st floor – you do not need a room key for this. Go to the bar. There is also an open terrace where you can smoke and take a beautiful photo without glass.You can order a cocktail or beer for decency. From 16.00 to 20.00 there is a special offer buy 1 free 1. That is, buying one beer or cocktail you get the second one for free. There was such a promotion at the time of September 2019. If suddenly it does not exist – do not blame me. You don’t need to book anything in advance. There are large screens for broadcasting sports events, so keep in mind that the institution is open until at least 22.00. Perhaps until a later time.
Now I turn to the iconic and famous high-rise bars and restaurants with a great view, but through the glass windows.
Sky Bar in Traders Hotel.
Address – 33rd Floor, KLCC, Traders Hotel
Opening hours – 10.00 – 1.00 and on Fridays and Saturdays until 3.00 am
The iconic and probably the most famous high-rise bar in Kuala Lumpur is located on the 33rd floor of the Traders Hotel. The hotel itself is also famous for its views of the iconic Twin Towers. Many people live in it for this stunning frontal view.
The bar itself has a pool and you can swim in it until 18.00. I highly recommend this place exactly until 18.00. Here’s the truth. There are almost no people, the daytime view is also magnificent, but there are only two high-rise bars in the city that work in the morning – there is also the Face Platinum hotel – I wrote above. That is, in the evening you already have a huge selection of places with a beautiful high-altitude view, but in the afternoon what you need. Perfect for those who have a hotel without a pool and who want to combine admiring the views of Kuala Lumpra with a refreshing swim in the pool.
With regard to food, the choice is not great – snacks for cocktails and alcohol are simple, but solid.In the evening, especially on peak days – Friday and Saturday – there are a lot of people and there can be no privacy. There is also no pre-booking service – whoever came first sat at the window. There is a waiting list. That is, if all the seats at the window with a view are occupied, you are seated at a table in the back, and as soon as space at the window becomes free, you are transplanted.
There is no dress code until 6 pm, which is also very important. The pricing policy is of course high. A glass of beer costs about $ 8, cocktails about the same.Medium quality cappuccino – obviously taken from the restaurant on the 5th floor. In short, a place for a couple of photos and a glass. Well, take a dip, since there is a shower and you can put yourself in order after the pool and change clothes.
THIRTY 8 Restaurant in Grand Hyatt KL
Address – 38th Floor, Grand Hyatt Hotel, jalan Penang
Opening Hours – Breakfast – 6.00 – 10.30 Lunch – 12.00 – 15.00 Afternoon Tea – 15.00 – 17.00 Dinner 18.00 – 23.00
Reservation Phone – +603 2182 12134
An excellent and not cheap restaurant with a beautiful view of the Twin Towers and the entire central KLSS area is perfect for both VIPs and mid-budget travelers.Here you can celebrate an important event or just have a tasty meal. The cuisine is predominantly Chinese and European. There is a huge selection of alcohol and desserts. Probably the only stunning high-altitude place where you can meet the sunrise and combine it with breakfast. The view goes through the glass, but it’s still beautiful. Even if you do not live at the Hyatt Hotel, you can easily come here to have breakfast and pay on the spot. This offer is especially suitable for you if you have an early arrival and have not yet been accommodated in your hotel, but you have already left your things at the reception and are free as the wind.After a hard night flight, you don’t really have the strength to wander around the city, and it’s time for lunch and you could eat. Breakfasts cost around $ 25 and are as good as dinner. A great option. Moreover, the dress code is only after 18.00. So your shorts in the afternoon or in the morning will not embarrass anyone.
Marini’s on 57
Address – Menara 3 Petronas, Persiaran KLCC
Opening hours – 17.00 -1.30
Reservation phone – +603 2161 2880
Another iconic restaurant located right next to the Twin Towers in the so-called third tower on the dizzying 57th floor.This is a highly respected and respectable place that requires a dress code. No flip flops, shorts, etc. Trousers and closed shoes for men and closed shoes for women. You can easily go up to the bar and order a couple of drinks, especially since there are discounts on alcohol until 20.00 and the prices are not shocking at all. If you want to visit a restaurant, then you should make a reservation and there is a certain amount that you agree to spend. Approximately USD 100 equivalent. Italian cuisine restaurant. My clients spoke well of the food at this place.
So a visit to this institution can be in the format of a detailed meeting with partners, friends, family gatherings or celebrating an important event, or in the format of a simple couple of cocktails and great photos for Instagram)).
Stratosphere at The Roof
Address – The Roof, 1 First Avenue, Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya
Opening hours – Wednesday – Saturday from 20.00 to the last customer
But this place is suitable for those wishing to admire the view of the city, as it were, from the side.You won’t find this place in many reviews, but it is my pleasure to present you with a high-rise restaurant in the trendy suburb of Kuala Lumpur. This is the Bandar Utama area, next to the respectable residential area Damansar Perdana . Firstly, there is a huge shopping mall next to this place, where you can shop wonderfully with both expensive and democratic brands; secondly, it is an opportunity to see how people live in the suburbs of Kuala Lumpur on the way there; thirdly, from the height of the establishment, a view of the city from the side and a 360-degree view opens up.This is definitely not the same view as from the city center. Fourth, you can get there not only by taxi or Grab, but also by metro – the new MRT line, Bandar Utama station. And you can get an MRI, for example, at the quite conveniently located MRI station Bukit Bintang or MRI Museum Negara.
Now about the institution itself. Please note that it does not work on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. And it opens late – already at 20.00. But the kitchen there is quite normal, there is alcohol by itself and a very original herbal floor.This is their feature.
In general, if you have already examined everything in the central part of the city and you want something romantic, not trivial and not ordinary, try the Stratosphere establishment in Bandar Utam.
This concludes my review of high-rise bars and restaurants in Kuala Lumpur. This is not the entire list, of course. There are 5-6 more places, so if you want something else original and unusual in terms of high-rise bars and restaurants, then you can always ask me, your guide in Kuala Lumpur, and I will gladly share new places for you.90,000 10 fabulous rooftop bars and restaurants in kuala lumpur, malaysia

Capri by Fraser in Kuala Lumpur – comfortable apartments with a gorgeous rooftop pool
We first met the Capri by Fraser network in Singapore a few months ago.Then we liked the concept of the apart-hotel itself, and especially how it was implemented in Capri.
Therefore, when we gathered for a few days in Kuala Lumpur, we were glad to know that there is also a hotel of this chain in the Malaysian capital, and to be honest, it impressed us even more!
In general, they have a lot in common, but the main feature of the hotel in KL is an open roof with a restaurant and an infinity pool on it. We are big lovers of looking at everything from above, we love all kinds of observation decks, TV towers, skyscrapers, etc.so that they were delighted with such species.
1. Open roof,
with a restaurant, terrace
and infinity pool overlooking the sunset.
2. Apartments with a full kitchen.
3. Play area (table football, billiards, Playstation).
We lived in an apartment on the 15th floor.
The room is divided into 3 parts – right at the entrance there is a fully equipped kitchen, with a stove, an extractor hood, a microwave oven, a dining table and a set of dishes.
In the middle of the room there is a working area,
with a long table all over the wall,
there is also a spacious bathroom,
with an open space near the sink and separate shower and toilet.
Further there is a bedroom with a bed, TV,
and also with access to a small balcony,
from which a pleasant view of the surroundings opens.
The main restaurant, which also serves breakfast, is located on the ground floor.
We stayed at the hotel on the eve of the Chinese New Year, so we found such fun holiday decorations.
Tomorrow in Capri is quite good,
without any special frills, but with a full set – pastries,
salads and cold snacks,
The restaurant itself is quite roomy and is designed, among other things, for large companies.
Another bar-restaurant is located on the last, 33rd floor of the hotel. There are tables both inside,
and outside, with an excellent view of the city.
Another place where you can have a snack or drink coffee is the lobby bar,
which is located right next to such a stylish reception.
Pool / Fitness
The pool in the hotel, as I mentioned, is located in the open air, on the roof.
It is long, wide,
and “endless”, so that from the side it seems as if the water is flowing down somewhere =)
The pool is divided into two parts, one of them is for adults, and the second is for children.
And between them there is a partition that fit even our Tyomik, he crawled there with pleasure.
There are sun loungers next to the pool,
and even one “royal”))
The view from the pool is simply unreal!
The buildings around the hotel are sparse, so the view is varied,
and mountains in the background,
and when the sunset also begins, it’s generally beautiful!
And after the sun finally hides, lights begin to light up below and the city is transformed.
Near the pool, on the roof there is also greenery – a lawn, bushes and even trees, so the atmosphere is very cozy there.
For those who are used to staying in shape, including on the road, the hotel has a well-equipped gym. There are both cardio and strength equipment, in general – a complete set.
The hotel is located on the outskirts of the city, in a new area, and the main attractions of Kuala Lumpur are located in the city center.
For example, to the Petronas and KLCC towers from the hotel 11 km –
can be reached either by taxi or by metro (the station is 700 meters from Capri).
Capri by Fraser is a very excellent 4 star aparthotel at a very reasonable price. Large, spacious rooms with a kitchen, a gym, a sauna, a games room and of course the infinity pool leave a good impression on most guests – at booking.com Capri has a consistently high rating and very positive reviews.
If you are going to spend a few days in Kuala Lumpur, or just fly with a transfer in the capital and you need an apartment with a kitchen, while remoteness from the center and attractions does not matter, then the Capri by Fraser hotel is a great option!

Kuala Lumpur – attractions, establishments and gastronomy in a fresh guide
Start your acquaintance with the eclectic spirit of the city with a walk along the Kasturi Walk from Central Market Square (Jalan Hang Kasturi, LRT station Pasar Seni) .Here, British colonial houses are lined up, in the distance there is an openwork skyscraper in Arabic Menara Dayabumi (Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin) , the former headquarters of Petronas before the construction of the twin towers, and at the entrance to the market street you will be met by a huge metal installation – wau bulan, or Malay kite, which looks like a butterfly. And the market building itself (to the left of the entrance) was built in the Art Deco style. Intrigued? This is just the beginning!
After passing through the Kasturi Walk, you will enter another pedestrian street – Medan Pasar .British colonial houses along the entire street, which looks more like a square, are very organically complemented by modern skyscrapers made of glass, concrete, and in some places gold decorative plates. Then you can turn onto Jalan Tun Tan Siew Sin and, reaching Petaling Street Flea Market (Jalan Petaling) , find yourself in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown or go a little further and on the parallel Jalan Tun Perak get into one of the Indian districts of the city. British colonial houses, hung with all kinds of signs in Chinese and Tamil, will accompany you in these two areas.
Passing through the entire market space Petaling Street Market , on a small Jalan Tun H.S. Lee you will meet two ancient temples at once, surrounded by the same colonial houses and modern concrete skyscrapers – the red Chinese Guan Di Temple (168, Jalan Tun HS Lee) and the traditional Indian Sri Mahamariamman Temple (163, Jalan Tun HS Lee) . The entrance to the temples is absolutely free.
Official Quarter Little India (Jalan Travers to Jalan Tun Sambanthan, Brickfields) is located near KL Sentral Station.There is a suitable atmosphere here with traditional Indian small architectural forms against the backdrop of modern high-rises, many Indian shops and restaurants, as well as exchange offices with a very favorable rate. In general, everything that a tourist needs.
For Arabic architecture, go to the area of the oldest mosque in the city – Masjid Jamek (Jalan Tun Perak, LRT station Masjid Jamek) . Admission is free, women are given appropriate Muslim robes.
On the other side of the Gombak River, practically opposite Masjid Jamek, there is Merdeka Square (Jalan Raja) .In colonial times, there were rugby fields and tennis courts, but now there is a large green area where you can relax overlooking the magnificent Sultan’s palace Abdul Samad (Jalan Raja | Merdeka Square) . This Moorish-style building with a beautiful clock tower houses the Supreme and High Courts of Malaysia. However, to visit the building itself, you need to obtain written permission from the Legal Department.
To Kuala Lumpur City Gallery (27, Jalan Raja, Dataran Merdeka) it is worth approaching at least to take a photo with the street installation “I LOVE KL”.Inside the gallery, an extremely detailed and colorful 3D model of the city is exhibited, and the development of Kuala Lumpur can be traced from the historical photo exhibition. The entrance is only $ 1, here in the tourist center you can take a free city map in English.
The most fabulous place in all of Malaysia is the National Mosque Masjid Negara (Jalan Perdana) . And all because at the entrance, visitors are dressed in magical lilac capes with huge hoods. And walking in such attire through the modern halls of the mosque, past small pools and fountains, you feel like a real Jedi or Princess Leia.The cosmic views of the city skyscrapers from the large terrace only enhance the feeling of being a Star Wars character! The entrance to the mosque is free, girls are wearing hijab on top of the hoodie lately.
Behind the national mosque there is a huge park area – Lake Gardens. It includes Bird Park (920, Jalan Cenderawasih) and Butterfly Park (Taman Tasik Perdana, Jalan Cendarasari) at the foot of the hill, as well as Botanical Garden (Jalan Kebun Bunga) with collection orchids and hibiscus on top.The parks are open daily from 9:00 to 18:00 and the Botanical Garden from 7:00 to 20:00. A ticket to the birds will cost $ 11, to the butterflies – $ 5, and to the orchid garden – $ 9.
In case you get bored with Asian exoticism and want something more European, take a walk to St. John’s Cathedral (5, Jalan Bukit Nanas) . The interior of the temple will hardly impress you, but the street landscape will not leave you indifferent! Indeed, right behind the Gothic building of the church is the space TV tower – Menara KL (Jalan P Ramlee) .The tower itself is just a stone’s throw away – 10-15 minutes of a leisurely walk along Jalan Raja Chulan along the eco-park Taman Eko Rimb a KL on the one hand and wonderful city landscapes of western churches and modern skyscrapers on the other. It costs $ 11.50 to climb to the observation deck at the top of Menara KL. It is open daily from 9:00 to 22:00. We’ll tell you a secret, it is from here that the best view of the city and its main symbol – the Petronas Towers – opens up, and besides, there is no need to stand in a huge queue to enter! It is best to view the city skyline before sunset to see Kuala Lumpur both in the light of the sun and in the night illumination.
And, of course, from Menara KL the path lies to the legendary PETRONAS Twin Towers (Kuala Lumpur City Center) . The openwork architecture of the towers is most beautiful in the night illumination. While crowds of tourists are jostling for a selfie at the front door, head to the park behind the towers. There are fewer people here and the view is more colorful! Every evening for 5 minutes at 20:00, 21:00 and 22:00 at the foot of the buildings there is a musical fountain. It’s up to you to climb or not to the observation deck. It is better to buy an entrance ticket for $ 19 on the towers website, otherwise you will have to stand in a huge line early in the morning, and then come again at the specified time.And it’s not a fact that there will be free tickets on the day you need (especially on weekends), and on Mondays the observation deck is generally closed. In addition, the observation deck is not at the top of the towers, but on the bridge between the buildings. And remember, here is the same story as with the Eiffel Tower: the PETRONAS Twin Towers observation deck is the only place in the city from which you cannot see its main attractions – the towers themselves. Therefore, for a full-fledged panorama of the city, it is still better to choose Menara KL.
If you don’t want to stand in queues and pay a decent amount of entrance fee, but your soul requires the continuation of the cultural program, go to the free Galeri Petronas on the 3rd level (3rd level) of the Suria KLCC shopping center at the foot of the towers. It contains the works of local artists and photographers, as well as international exhibitions of contemporary art. The gallery is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 to 20:00.
In a skyscraper located across the park from the towers, you will find a giant aquarium Aquaria KLCC (Convention Center Complex, Jalan Pinang) .You can get to it directly from Suria KLCC through covered overpasses. Inside you will find a glass tunnel, laid under a giant aquarium with sharks, rays, sea turtles and many fish. A travolator runs along the entire tunnel, so nothing will distract you from contemplating the underwater world, just stay and watch. The entire excursion is designed for 1 hour. Therefore, the last visitors are allowed in at 19:00. The aquarium is open daily from 10:00 to 20:00. Admission ticket for an adult – $ 14.
The second most popular attraction in Kuala Lumpur is Batu Caves (Batu Caves, Selangor) .The complex of the sacred for Hindus caves is located 13 km to the north, you can get here by LRT. The road from the city center to the Batu Caves terminal station will take about 30 minutes and will cost only $ 0.50. The entrance to the caves is free and open daily from 6:00 to 21:00. The first thing that you will see upon exiting the subway is a statue of the Indian monkey god Hanuman. There are really a lot of insolent monkeys here, so watch out for your gadgets and bags! The most impressive thing about the Batu Caves is the 272-step staircase leading to the Temple Cave, and next to it stands a huge gilded statue of the Hindu God of War, Murugan.
