What’s the best way to see a city? On top of a 34-storey building, cocktail in hand, with a 360 degree panorama of the city skyline!
KL has heaps of great sky-bars but the coolest one I’ve found so far is the Heli Lounge Bar . It’s bloody genius really: by day it’s a rooftop helipad, but as the sun goes down in turns into an open air sky-bar with top views of the city. Especially KL’s famous twins, the Petronas Towers. And the best thing is the view isn’t spoiled by layers of glass or wire … there’s just a tape cordon between you and the edge. It’s awesome.
But I didn’t sit on a bus for five hours just to drink a cocktail and look at a pretty view. We hit the food, culture, museums, architecture, shopping malls, mosques, temples, gardens, animal parks, and all the goodness KL has to offer.
Four days really isn’t enough in KL, so I’ll have to plan a return visit, but shout outs to the friends I caught up with in KL: Noel and Scott.
