Panoramic views of the Kuala Lumpur skyline at sunset


It normally amazes me every single time I stop by Kuala Lumpur, which is at least as soon as a year, how a lot the skyline has changed but once more. Skyscrapers spring up like mushrooms in the Malaysian capital. With such an impressive, ever-altering skyline, it is a jostle to get a terrific view. There are lots of rooftop bars and restaurants to delight in a panoramic view of the Kuala Lumpur skyline, and like the consistently altering skyline itself, there’s normally a new spot with but a superior view. On a current trip, my sister took me to Vertigo bar on the rooftop of the Banyan Tree Hotel.

We got there just before sunset and as quickly as I stepped out onto the terrace, I was in awe of the view! The iconic Petronas twin towers (at 452 meters, nonetheless the world’s tallest twin towers) stood proudly just before us. I looked about and swiftly spotted all the other familiar landmarks. We discovered a comfy corner to sit and ordered our drinks – I will have to say, the employees had been friendly but service was a tad slow, and the drinks had been pricey, even for KL requirements. We also ordered some snacks which sounded superior on the menu but had been, in truth, fairly mediocre. I told myself that we had been there for the view and THAT absolutely didn’t disappoint! Vertigo does not have a complete 360-degree view as opposed to other well-liked spots such as the KL Tower and the Grand Hyatt Hotel but it does supply an alfresco terrace to delight in the views and the breeze.

Sunset noticed from Vertigo

It was a quite cloudy day so I wasn’t expecting a lot in terms of the sunset but as the sun retreated beneath the horizon, the colours changed steadily, and then drastically. The outcome was a surreal urban landscape, with a plethora of towers framed by a blazing red sky! The lights from the surrounding buildings, streets and targeted traffic beneath looked like a sea of shimmering gems. It was maybe the most extraordinary view of Kuala Lumpur I’d ever noticed!
