Activities in KLCC
Being the nucleus of Kuala Lumpur, with iconic landmarks such as the Petronas Twin Towers, KLCC Park, and KL Convention Centre within its zip code, you can bet that activities in KLCC will be highly entertaining. There is so much material to work with and topping the list of great KLCC activities are its shopping malls, Suria KLCC and Avenue K, both of which are located within walking distance to one another.
Activities in KLCC also include places offering bird’s eye views of the city centre, a park with a pretty cool, synchronised water fountain and light display, as well as an orchestra theatre with regular attention-grabbing performances. The coolest places to chill out in KLCC will leave you convinced that this neighbourhood is truly an all-encompassing entertainment, nightlife, dining and shopping package.
Bird’s-Eye View of KL
There are two places here where you can get a bird’s-eye view of Kuala Lumpur: the Petronas Twin Towers’ skybridge and the KL Tower’s observation platform. Linking Tower 1 and Tower 2, the skybridge is suspended at 170 metres above ground and is supported by a three-hinged arch comprising giant round bearings at the base and a pair of 51-metre steel legs. Although admission to the skybridge is free, visitors have to get here early to obtain tickets to the skybridge as only a certain amount of visitors is allowed per day, and the queue can get impossibly long.
Equipped with four express lifts which takes you to the top in less than a minute, the KL Tower’s observation deck stands at 276 metres above ground and comes complete with an audio tour in 11 languages. Visitors who purchase tickets to the observation platform can also gain entry to the Outdoor Winter Park, the KL Tower Animal Zone, the Forest in the City during the day, the Light & Sound Show at night, and experience being an F1 driver at the F1 Stimulator Zone.
A masterpiece conceptualised by the world-renowned Brazilian landscape artist, the late Roberto Burle Marx, the KLCC Park is a 50-acre urban sanctuary in the heart of the city. The elaborately-landscaped park’s main highlight is the spectacular dancing water fountains at the Lake Symphony, considered by many as a work of art on its own. Around 1,900 trees and plants from 74 different species are available here, as well as jogging tracks, a two-acre children’s playground and a 43-metre elevated bridge that provides a vantage point from where to get a good view of the park and the twin towers.
