The KLCC - Bukit Bintang Walkway is a 1.173km-long pedestrian bridge that connects Pavilion KL to Impiana KLCC Hotel and the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. The other portion of this walkway is a pedestrian tunnel on the convention centre’s concourse level linked to Suria KLCC shopping centre.
Also known as the Pavilion-KLCC pedestrian bridge, there are several entrance and exit points (escalators and staircases) along the bridge: one is located at Connection (an al-fresco dining and entertainment strip at Pavilion KL), while the others are at busy areas such as Jalan Pinang, Jalan Perak, Jalan Raja Chulan and the KL Convention Centre. Also accessible via this bridge is the Raja Chulan monorail station and the KLCC LRT station.
With the KLCC - Bukit Bintang Walkway, people can travel safely, conveniently and comfortably on foot from Bukit Bintang all the way to the Kuala Lumpur city centre, and vice versa. In short, the bridge links the Kuala Lumpur city centre (KLCC) and Bukit Bintang: two major retail and tourism spots. It takes 15 to 20 minutes to walk across the five-metre wide, air-conditioned bridge.
Meanwhile, from the KL Convention Centre, it takes visitors less than a few minutes to access a number of KL landmarks such as the Suria KLCC shopping centre, PETRONAS Twin Towers, KLCC Park and more.
Opened in January 2012 by Prime Minister of Malaysia, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, the RM100 million bridge was a project funded by Malaysian oil giant, Petronas, as a safe, comfortable and convenient alternative to the city’s busy roads for pedestrians.
From the KLCC - Bukit Bintang Walkway, you can see the KL City Walk, a 1,200ft-long F&B, retail and entertainment strip located between the KL Convention Centre and Jalan P. Ramlee. Photo enthusiasts will be glad to know that the bridge offers some pretty good views of the KL city centre’s architecture.
