As a vibrant metropolitan city, it’s not a new thing if Kuala Lumpur offers mid to upper class fancy shopping malls and bars. Awarded as 4th shopping destination in the world by CNN Travels in 2012, KL ambitiously improving its tourism through both nature and big city life. Not far from heart of the city which is located in Bukit Bintang, there is one unique bar with 360 degrees view of the city, Heli Lounge.
Heli Lounge, a helipad transformed to a lounge
On the top of KH Tower, the unused helipad has been transformed to a lounge for chilling. There’s no entrance fee to get up to Heli Lounge, however buying at least one drink (beer, cocktail, juice) for only RM 20 allows you to go up to helipad.
It might seem a little bit messy and not fancy at all, but it’s nice for chilling. Both towers are perfectly seen from Heli Lounge. Best view is around 7-7.30 p.m. during sunset. I was lucky to have amazing sky, especially when the clouds turning red reflecting the light from the sun.
People were sitting and drinking on a simple chair and table, very simple setting. The ambience was nice and it was pretty busy. Definitely have to check Heli Lounge while you’re in Kuala Lumpur. Let the pictures talk.
Update: I came back again on February 2020 and if you wanna go up to the Helipad, you need to pay RM 50 and you can exchange it with certain beers or a glass or wine.

Lucky me, clear sunset after weeks raining
Nice colour blend of sky and tall bulding
Packed but view was just stunning
