Menara KL Tower is well worth a visit. But RM 45 (around $15 AUD) for a trip in an elevator for a sky-rise view of the city (which can be found for free at the Petronas Twin Towers) is a complete and utter rip-off, even by Australian standards. Far more valuable, and completely free of charge (except for the donation you'll be asked for if you're white and English speaking), is the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve Eco-Tour held from the base of the tower daily at 11am, 12.30pm, 2.30pm and 4.30pm. Bukit Nanas, according to our very friendly and knowledgable guide Tony, is a 10.5 ha reserve of rainforest in the midst of KL which was annexed by the British in 1906. Some of the trees are several hundred years old, and it is quite startling to encounter a huge patch of rainforest in the centre of a huge, modern metropolis. Take friends for a hiking day-trip.
