  • Started out with a visit to the Atkinson Clock Tower around 5pm and then walked up the road from there to Signal Hill. Was definitely glad I had taken that route after experiencing the stairs down...  more »
  • Enjoy the city view from the Signal Hill. You can buy a snack or drink while enjoying the city view.  more »
  • There is nothing here but seeing the main portion of KK City from high place. Thankfully the food and drink are cheap. You can come here by car, or by climbing some stairs through the hill. I recommend the later, since you can breathe some jungle air and have an exercise to boot.
  • Good place just to see few city light at night after you have your dinner..eventhough i personally think it is not high enough.. But good enough to cover city.. Maybe i should go there during the day. Its like a private spot. Will close after 12am i guess..
