You walk up a short and steep trail (with steps) and get a view over KK city, the waterfront and the islands just off the city. Nice photos if the weather is right.

Platform is providing a bird's eye view of the city and a far view to the islands. It needs a climb or car drive to get there. Looks a popular place for locals to sit on the benches provided at the platform. The view from the hill - nothing special, mainly buildings, a harbour and islands on the horizon. Maybe worth a stop on the way to the bird sanctuary, otherwise you may skip it.

There's also old clock tower at the foot of the hill.

Either climb the stairs at the Jalan Dewan or drive up to the observatory, both experience are great once you get the chance to see the entire KK city from this view. A clear day would allow you to see everything, including the vast sea in front and the great mountain area on the left handside.

This platform surrounded by greens and sitting on top of the hill provides visitors with views of the city and also the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. A great place for photography from different perspective.
