Eye on Malaysia – Biggest Ferris Wheel in Asia
A couple of days ago, an Internet friend of mine emailed me some pictures of a hugh ferris wheel in Malaysia. It’s said this is the biggest ferris wheel of its kind in Asia… not sure if it’s true or not, but at leat’s it’s the biggest in Malaysia!
The ferris wheel has a very nice name too Eye on Malaysia.
Eye on Malaysia is located strategically at the edge on Titiwangsa Lake, Kuala Lumpur. It’s very similar to London Eye and has been unveiled in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2007 on January 6, 2007 by Malaysian Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
One ride on the Eye on Malaysia takes approximately 15 minutes, and the charge for an adult is RM15, while for a kid is RM8. Not too expensive for a chance to view the beautiful KL skyline from 60 meters high I guess.
Looks like the Titiwangsa Lake is quite happening too.
Over the lake, you can see the magnificent KLCC (also known as the Petronas Twin Towers), the tallest building in Malaysia, and one of the tallest building in the world! KL Tower is also in view.
This picture should have been taken when the photographer was taking a ride. Great view, on the background is the Petronas Twin Towers. Looks so near, right? Awesome!!
A magnificent view of the Twin Towers, KL Tower and Eye on Malaysia. Three of the greatest buildings in Malaysia all in one picture.
If you were lucky, you might see some fireworks too!
