At the time of visiting trees blocked some of the view. Nice views of the islands and waterfront. I think the viewing platform would have been better served if it was set higher from its current location

I don't think KK is an attractive city from the air, so I walked down the hill, tried my best to take photos of the building itself. I like the building itself very much though.

It's free to go on the platform but you can also buy food from the cafe. Lovely views of KK so highly recommended!

If you wish to walk to the Observatory, it is at least 30 minutes up hill from Tourism Centre. If you wish to drive by car, it is less than 5 minutes.

We were recommended to visit the Observatory. Don’t waste your time.

You would not be able to see anything. They have built Hugh hotels in front of the Observatory. You could hardly see anything worth noticing.

It offers a nice view of the city. Nothing spectacular. Easy hike up to the top. Some benches available as well.
