Anyone can bet that everybody that has a camera will capture pictures of KLCC. The iconic tower that was once the tallest building in the world is a must visit in everybody’s itenary, especially if one is not a KLite. I can also bet that nobody will feel bored of clicking away their camera eventhough they have been to KLCC and the twin tower many times before. KLCC is actually a 40 hectre “city within a city” and consisting of a few landmarks. There is the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre .It is an International class convention centre and has been hosting many world class convention and seminars. Within this KLCC there is the KL Aquaria, the only state of the art 60,000 square feet aquarium right in the heart of the city. Suria KLCC, is a modern shopping mall at the base of the Petronas Twin Tower for shopping and dining convenience. The Petronas Twin Tower, being the most popular and visible landmark on this 40 hectres Kuala Lumpur City Centre, has been mistakenly called KLCC. Google map below describes the mentioned “city”.

For this posting,I’ll let the picture do the talking. Pictures were taken using Canon 1000D.

One of the attraction of KLCC is the fountain. KLites and visitors can lounge around the lake and entertain oneself at the fountain. Whether just lazing around with friends or alone, being beside this lake and fountain will not be a boring moment.
Above: If you are a fitness buff and love jogging, KLCC offer synthetic jogging track to jog around the park. Don’t worry about city smog as the track is covered and surrounded by trees. Our science teacher taught us that plants release oxygen and absorbs carbon dioxide. When we exercise, our body needs oxygen for energy release. Therefore there is a good of supply of oxygen, even though it is in the heart of a hectic city. Guest staying at the Mandarin Oriental or Traders Hotel or nearby hotels don’t have to travel a long distance to jog at anytime of the day.
