YOUR LAST CHANCE TO SEE THE EYE ON MALAYSIA

You only have 3 months left to experience this giant Ferris wheel. Its open to the public until 31 December only. It is the tallest portable observation wheel in Southeast Asia -- a gigantic Ferris wheel 60m tall, with spectacular 360-degrees view of Kuala Lumpur.

The concept is similar to the London Eye --The Eye on Malaysia was unveiled on 6 January 2007 as the official icon of the 2007 Visit Malaysia Year.

It would take roughly 12 minutes to complete the circle and costs 15 Ringgit (150 Baht/US$4/€3) for adults and 8 Ringgit for children and senior citizens. There are 42 gondolas that can carry 8 passengers each (2 cabins especially designed for people on wheelchair). Open from 10am to 10pm daily.

It’s located in Taman Tasik Titiwangsa - take the Monorail or LRT Ampang Line and get off Titiwangsa Station. You can also visit the nearby Bird Park, Hibiscus Garden or Butterfly Park. This northern part of Kuala Lumpur has fresh air and greener with all the century-old trees around.

In my opinion, although the view up Eye on Malaysia is quite nice, a trip up Menara KL is still better – better view of the city, higher vantage point and more accessible to tourists. But nevertheless, the Eye on Malaysia is an experience only few of us can brag about. So, hurry! Malaysia spent 30M Ringgit (300 million Baht) to built this just to be dismantled at the end of the year! Come, come, come!

I really think this wheel is just an extravagance. Why would the government spend Rm 30 million just to be dismantled after a year?

Youre right. The view at KL Tower is much much better. But its the experience. We have a similar concept coming up in November.

Singapore also has a copycat ferris wheel coming up. But why spend so much money on this thing and then dismantle it...

*STOP POVERTY - Money for better purpose.

errmm...I heard the wheel will still be there and permanently be there ;)..perhaps another gimmick or shall I say strategy to get as many people as possible to visit and perhaps to recover the investment or capital outlay soonest ? I dunno.....
