The KL Forest Eco Park is literally a forest in the middle of a city. It’s in fact located in one of the oldest forests in Malaysia, Bukit Nanas right in the middle of Kuala Lumpur. Despite being old, it is one of the city’s latest attractions that provides visitors with a view of the city beyond and the treetops within.
Getting there is no challenge at all. Taking a Grab or just driving can get you there easily. It’s right next to KL Tower, so you can make a pit stop if you’re up for it.

For a cheaper option, you can take a Rapid KL train via the Line 8 Monorail from KL Sentral to Bukit Nanas station. It will be the 7th stop and will take approximately 16 minutes to arrive. This will cost you around RM4-7. The train arrives every 10 minutes so you don’t have to wait long to get there.
Once you’re at the Bukit Nanas station, the tower is just a 6-minute walk away. You should be able to find the park easily from there.
