For the locals, adult fee is RM9.00 and it's RM5 for senior citizens. Foreigners pay about twice that. There's nothing much to see on top. It's all caged up. We went at night. There are a few viewfinders on top, but they don't work. It's a novelty trip to make to say "I did it!", but there's really nothing much... More

If you already been to KL Tower, then this is nothing although the entrance free is cheaper. The souvenir shop is opened until 6pm and eventhough the ticket counter there also sells souvenirs, those are of KL Tower's and not Alor Setar's! You will only receive the entrance ticket after you went down again to the ground and only 1... More

Just in front of Aman Central. Not many people go over there at night. Night scene not very beautiful.

If you happen to reach Alor Setar, just drop by. Ticket price is ok. Cost you MYR 9 for malaysia adult, MYR 5 for kid. Non Malaysian earthlings RM 16. Get to see all around and if wheather is clear, Langkawi.

There are some negative things about this place as a tourist attraction but all is forgiven because of the view alone. The view is fantastic. So what if you don't like the food here? Go eat somewhere else if you don't like it. You don't come here to eat, you come here to enjoy the view. Grow up, I mean,... More

Worth a visit and not expensive, if it is a hot day it will be cool up there. Lovely view of the surrounding country and you can even see islands out to sea

We dropped by but didn't go up. Very impressive tower from below. There are some stalls around the tower but not open when we were there that morning. We went in the tower and checked out some displayed antique phones which reminded us our childhood. Walked around the tower and concluded our trip there. A massive Aman Central Mall is... More

Apart from serving the role of a telecommunication tower, it also caters as a tourist destination for the town. The tower also houses some restaurants and a souvenir shop. The tower is an observatory tower to look for the crescent moon to mark the beginning of Muslim months such as Ramadhan, syawal.. and telixomunication tower at alor setar
