The KL Sky Tour – An Experience Not to Be Missed

A helicopter ride used to be out of bounds for normal people like you and me.. it was only for millionaires and those working in big international corporations, high up in the government, the police or army… but now, you can get on board a helicopter and enjoy an exhilarating ride in the blue skies piloted by certified and experienced pilots.

I cannot tell you much about the other helicopter rides as I only had the opportunity to get on the KL Express Helicopter Tour but even with this Express 6 minutes tour, it was enough to etch an unforgettable memory in my mind…it was just so thrilling spotting all KL tourist spots and famous landmarks… so much it left me near speechless and kinda rude since I was so speechless I can hardly murmur much of a reply when the helicopter pilot pointed out some landmarks….

If you have the chance, try sitting in the co-pilot’s seat as the view there is most amazing….

    this is such a great way to see KL!
    away from all the traffic and dust on the road. Seeing it from the air makes everything look so small and cute and so enjoyable to reach places like Genting Highlands in such a short time.

    You are right that it used to be only the rich and famous could ride in a heli. The price is quite affordable if divided by three pax. Let me get a couple of friends together.
