Super 4 of Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur Super 4 Skyscrapers

Did you know there is a Super 4 of Kuala Lumpur? Yes, with the recent addition of the Merdeka 118, this mega skyscraper has made it 4 of the tallest buildings in the world, right here in Malaysia.

In the last two decades, Kuala Lumpur has been included as one of the skyscraper cities in the world, with several unique world-class skyscrapers and towers.

Super 4 of Kuala Lumpur

KL city, as it is commonly called, is home to four amazing skyscrapers and towers, and I will share with you some of the basic information about these four mega structures that dominate the skyline now.

Before I continue, you should also know that Malaysia was put on the world map many years ago because of the Petronas Twin Towers, once the tallest twin towers in the world.

The Super 4 of Kuala Lumpur are Merdeka 118, Exchange 106 @ TRX, Petronas Twin Towers and the Kuala Lumpur Tower, which you can see all four in the main photo above.

Merdeka 118 (#4) - Formerly, this megastructure went through three different names, Menara Warisan Merdeka, KL 118 and PNB 118; it is now finally called Merdeka 118 and is a 118-story mega-tall skyscraper in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. At 678.9 m tall, it is the second-tallest building and structure in the world. (as of Oct 2023)

Exchange 106 (#3) - This skyscraper was formerly known as the Signature Tower and is a 453.6-meter-tall supertall skyscraper in the TRX area of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is Malaysia's second-tallest building and Southeast Asia's third-tallest building.

The Petronas Twin Towers (#2) - This interlinked pair of 88-storey supertall skyscrapers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, stands at 451.9 metres (1,483 feet). From 1998 to 2004, they were officially designated as the tallest buildings in the world until they were surpassed by the completion of the Taipei 101 in 2004.

Kuala Lumpur Tower (#1) - Often referred to as KL Tower, this is a 6-storey, 421-metre-tall (1,381 ft) telecommunication tower in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is the world's seventh-tallest tower and Malaysia and Southeast Asia's second-tallest tower, and was completed in 1994.

Where is the best place to see the Super 4 of Kuala Lumpur?

There are several places around Kuala Lumpur where you can try to spot all four skyscrapers on a good day. So, you can try your luck, especially on a clear day or for a sunset shot.

Ampang Lookout Point - This is the most famous KL skyline lookout point where you can get a good view of the city day or night. Many locals come here for sunset or night photography of KL, and even I stopped here many times over 30 years ago. Easily accessible by ride-hailing for visitors to KL.

Changkat Tunku Lookout Point - The above is one of the best skyline views of Kuala Lumpur, day or night. And it's easily accessible. And if you are a visitor to KL, you can also take a ride-hailing car to get here.

Bukit Tunku Viewpoint (Closed) - This used to be the closest lookout point for the KL Skyline, but due to the place going viral on social media, many people came here to take photos and litter the area daily. The city council eventually boarded up this place and closed it down, so do not come here for the skyline view.

As I also do some smartphone photography occasionally, you can check out my Merdeka 118 photos taken with my smartphone in December 2021 when they were still building it.
