Planning a visit to Kuala Lumpur and you are not sure what places of interest in KL to include on your list? Most people plan 2-3 days in Kuala Lumpur before heading on to other exotic locations in Malaysia including Langkawi, Penang, and East Coast Islands. Kuala Lumpur, however, has plenty of amazing attractions for kids and adults alike. Menara KL is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Kuala Lumpur.
Where is Menara Kuala Lumpur located and how to reach Menara KL?
If you are staying in Bukit Bintang or KLCC, the KL Tower is easily accessible from most locations by train or taxi. The tower is located very close to Petronas Tower and KLCC Park and all of these locations can be easily explored in a single day.
The nearest train station to Menara KL is Bukit Nanas LRT which is located in front of the Concorde Hotel ( 4-Star). I have stayed at Concorde Hotel several times during my visit to Kuala Lumpur. A walkway across the road connects this location to the tropical forest surrounding the KL Tower.
Another interesting place I stayed during my stay in KLCC is Oasis Suites and Hotel which is located within walking distance from the tower. Bukit Nanas LRT can be easily reached from KL Sentral and Bukit Bintang stations.
How much is the ticket for Menara KL?
The tickets can be purchased online or on-premises. As the tower attracts large crowds and groups, I suggest booking online to avoid queues and save time during your visit to this location.
