Kuala Lumpur bird's-eye view Cessna flight

On the pavement, Kuala Lumpur will dwarf you with its sleek skyscrapers and cybermalls, but from the air it’s a whole different experience. This hour long Cessna flight over Kuala Lumpur’s gleaming urban sprawl will give you a true sense of scale and a thrilling ride to boot. You’ll be astonished at the sheer size of the city, a feat of human achievement that can only be fully recognised as you gaze down upon the glinting silvers and cool blues of its endless high-rise towers. 

What to expect on the KL helicopter ride...

During this experience, you’ll soar over the city for a full hour in a small Cessna aircraft. You’ll be collected from your hotel and transferred to the airport to greet your experienced, knowledgeable pilot.

The pilot will provide a commentary throughout the flight, pointing out key landmarks including iconic skyscrapers like the Petronas Twin Towers, KL Tower and Menara Maybank, and historic sites like the King's Palace, and the impressive limestone outcrops and giant statue of Lord Murugan, the Hindu Deity, at Batu Caves. It’s an intimate, intense ride that packs a huge reward into a small timeframe.

You’ll fly over Central Kuala Lumpur, the heart of the metropolis. The city skyline is a maze of rooftops stretching out for miles and miles, but from above, you’ll see the old world Malaysia nudging right up against the new; East meets West abruptly here. 

Moving on from downtown KL, you’ll swoop over a host of sights that are singularly impressive from the air, such as the deepest tin mine in Malaysia and the revered Batu Caves. You’ll soar above outlying suburbs that seem untouched by time, as well as resort developments that take luxury to a whole new level. More than anything, you’ll get a clear impression of the contrasting lifestyles that exist side-by-side in the thriving Malaysian capital. 

It goes without saying that this experience is a brilliant photo opportunity, so be sure to keep your camera close at hand. There are few cities in the world that showcase the march of progress in such plain sight. Beyond all else, Kuala Lumpur is a city of ambition - this much becomes obvious from the air.

After your flight, you’ll be transferred back to your hotel, where you can wander between the skyscrapers with your feet on solid ground.
