“Petronas Towers are the perfect allegory for the meteoric rise of the city from tin-miners' hovel to 21st-century metropolis. Half of the daily allocation of tickets for 45-minute tours – which take in the Skybridge on the 41st floor and the observation deck on the 86th – are sold in advance online. Otherwise, turn up early to be sure of scoring a ticket to go up. First stop on the tour is the Skybridge where you can look down 170m as you walk across the glass-walled connection corridor between the two towers. Next you take the lift up to the 86th-floor observation deck to see the city from 370m.”

“Although the Petronas Towers are taller, the 421m Menara KL, rising from the crest of Bukit Nanas, offers the best city views. The bulb at the top contains a revolving restaurant, an interior observation deck at 276m and, most thrilling of all, an open deck at 300m, access to which is weather dependent. Risk vertigo to take your photo in the sky box, which puts nothing but glass between you and the ground below (no young children allowed). A free shuttle bus runs from the gate on Jln Punchak, or you can walk up through the KL Forest Eco Park and its canopy walkway.”

“All the rage in Kuala Lumpur now, Changkat Bukit Bintang nightlife is well-regarded as the ‘it’ party venue in the city’s lively yet fluid clubbing scene. A busy street that’s lined with plenty of international two-storey restobars, snazzy nightclubs, posh cocktail lounges, subdued whisky bars, and lively Irish pubs, it is one of the city’s most vibrant boulevards. Hosting plenty of themed nights, international DJs, and live band performances, it’s safe to say that nightlife in Changkat Bukit Bintang is anything but dull. Amongst the bevy of watering holes available here, there are a few establishments that stand out due to their unique concepts. Stand-up comedy, gay friendly parties, foreig”
