But beyond the fact that it’s pretty tall – 421 meters, to be specific – not many Malaysians, particularly KLites, are aware of all the cool things you can do there. And yes, you can easily spend the whole day here! Below, we’ve rounded up all the activities you can do at KL Tower — perfect if you only have a day to spend in Kuala Lumpur.
1. Observation Deck
Have you always wanted to see KL from a bird’s eye view? KL Tower is your best bet! The indoor observation deck offers a panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur that is second to none. You can even use binoculars to zoom in and get a closer view of the city. The observation deck is open from 9am to 10pm every day but we highly recommend going there on a clear day so you’ll be able to see the view!
2. Sky Deck
Want an even better bird’s eye view? Check out the open-air Sky Deck, the highest vantage point at KL Tower. The Sky Deck is an open-air deck located 300 m above ground a true highlight of KL Tower. Here you can find the impressive view of KL since it allows a 360-degree skyline where your breath will truly be taken away by the beauty of this boisterous city. Perfect for any sort of photoshoot, it’s completely insta-worthy. On a clear day, you’ll be able to see Genting Highlands! However, it can only be accessed on days of appropriate weather as there is a risk of lightning, so check the weather before you visit!
3. Sky Box
This one is for all the adrenaline junkies! Step into the Sky Box, where you can get the best Instagram-worthy photos of the cityscape. Inspired by Eureka Skydeck 88 in Melbourne, you’re completely surrounded by glass panels that extend from the Sky Deck, with nothing below you but several inches of glass and steel. The Sky Box can accommodate up to six people at a time. We hope you’re not afraid of heights!
4. KL Tower Mini Zoo
Yes, there is a mini zoo at KL Tower! If you have young children, then the mini zoo would definitely entice them. The zoo houses a variety of cute critters from around the world, such as meerkats, raccoons, and bat-eared foxes, which are sure to have you cooing over how adorable they are!
5. Blue Coral Aquarium
Now that you’ve visited the Mini Zoo, it’s time to explore the wonders of the underwater world at the Blue Coral Aquarium. The aquarium features a wide range of colourful and fascinating sea creatures such as spotted cardinalfish, fire clownfish, reef sharks, anemones, starfish, pufferfish and other species.
Entrance ticket: RM18 (adult), RM15 (children)

6. Upside Down House
No need to go all the way to Hawkins, Indiana to visit the Upside Down – just head over to the Upside Down House at the entrance to KL Tower! You’ll feel like Alice in Wonderland as you wander through the charming two-storey English cottage that’s been set completely upside-down, furniture and all. Open from 9am to 7pm daily, you will have fun posing and taking photos in all sorts of whimsical scenes!
7. KL Forest Eco Park
If you need a break from the city’s concrete pavements and skyscrapers and long for a bit of nature, you won’t even need to look outside the city as Kuala Lumpur actually has its own forest reserve right at the base of KL Tower. The Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve is the oldest gazetted forest reserve in the country and is home to a Jelutong Tree that dates back to nearly a century ago. Covering an area of approximately 9.3 hectares, the tropical rainforest is a welcome refuge from the city. I’d definitely recommend the Canopy Walk, which takes you up to 200 meters above ground and spans from one end of the park to the other.
8. XD Theater
Choose your adventure at XD Theater, where you have your pick of several 6D simulation rides. You’ll want to hold on to your seat as you’re taken through an exciting interactive experience, complete with lighting and wind effects.
9. F1 Simulator Zone
