This view is what Heli is all about. Housed atop a helipad that turns into a happening nightlife hotspot, the Heli Lounge Bar in Kuala Lumpur is a unique concept in itself.
First, is the concept itself. The helicopter pad turned bar and hangout spot in Kuala Lumpur is definitely one of the unique spots in KL – a must visit when in the city. The other is the aeronautically oriented theme – everything in the lounge, be it the booth, that is made from the converted side panel of a Boeing 737 and the DJ Console which is made out of a Boeing 747 turbine.
The Heli Lounge has an uncomplicated structure….with the lounge being on the 34th floor, followed by a two floor winding staircase that takes you to the 36th floor open to air Bar, with a stunning view of the city – be it the Petronas or the Menara KL tower.
The view of the Menara KL from the Heli Rooftop is stunning in the evening with the sun setting amidst the clouds with the awesome Menara giving it a magnificent feel.
The breathtaking evening view of the glistening Petronas Towers is another sight to behold. Staying put on the traffic lights near the base of the Petronas, one can get amazing views of the high rise twins that are the hallmark of the city of Kuala Lumpur.
A day visit to the Petronas Towers must begin with the Petrosains floor, which houses some of the most amazing concepts in science and technology. A must visit for children as well as adults, the Dark Tunnel ride followed by an interesting Dinosaur theme park, play as you go science and universe concepts will need a few hours. Petrosains, also known as The Discovery Centre, is a Malaysian Science and Technology Museum, located in the Surya KLCC within Petronas Towers. Petrosains was established in 1999 and was a brain child of Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad.
The Plasma Tube simulator at Petrosains explain the flow of current. When a part of the body touches the tube, the body becomes the Earth interface as electricity passes through it.
Moving upwards from Petrosains, one needs to go up the Petronas, which is the most widely known landmark of Kuala Lumpur, also for Malaysia. The twin towers were the tallest buildings in the world from 1999-2004 and are still the tallest twin tower. César Pelli the Argentinian – American architect who designed Petronas, expired recently on July 19, 2019. Here are some views from the 86th floor.
Petronas towers is open for public from Tuesdays till Sundays, between 9AM till 9PM with a Prayer break from 1PM till 2:30PM on Fridays only. Tickets are available at the CONCOURSE level. No online tickets are available at the moment. This 452 meter twin tower with 88 storeys is the crown jewel of Kuala Lumpur.
“As an internationally recognised landmark, the PETRONAS Twin Towers symbolise the courage, ingenuity, initiative, and determination, energy, confidence, optimism, advancement and zest of a nation.” – Dr. Mahathir Mohammad, Prime Minister of Malaysia
