Malaysia Kuala Lumpur Menara Tower

19 December 2005

Last day

Last day, some logistics to be considered, check out time of hotel, 12 noon, flight time, 2145, check in for flight is in the city at the train station, where you get boarding pass and check baggage before boarding the train for the 100km journey to the airport.
I decide I will have to leave my bags at the hotel lobby, I am sure they allow it, walk around for a few hours, then come back and get my bags and leave for KL Sentral Station for the check in.

Before then, I discover that unlike every thing else that opens at 10 a.m. the Menara tower opens at 9 a.m. and is only a short walk from here.
The walk was even shorter than I expected as a free shuttle bus takes you from the car park to the lift to the top of the tower.
The lift takes under 1 minute to ascend approximately 300 metres, the tower itself is the 4th highest in the world, quite a bit higher than centrepoint in Sydney, but like all these towers the top 100 metres is an antenna mast.
The three higher are CN tower in Canada, a tower in Shanghai and the one in Moscow
The observation deck isnt open air, which would have been awesome, so let me apologise in advance for some of the pictures if you can see reflection off the glass.
