I may be biased, but no observation tower comes close to matching the elegance and strength of the CN Tower. It's the tower that towers over the rest.

alorstar tower-malaysia(167m)
It is the 2nd tallest tower in Malaysia and the 19th tallest in the world but that's far from being the big deal Kedah has come to take pride in. What matters most is that you are about to discover that the tower is an unmistakable symbolic representation of the toils, trepidations and triumphs of Kedah's journey in search of progress and prosperity throughout the years.

Truly, Menara Alor Setar mirrors Kedah's infinitive rapids development whilst still retaining its glorius heydays of laid-back yet productive and balanced lifestyle that is prominently displayed through its unique architecture is the prowess and her futuristic, high-tech tenacity.

I like most of them, but KL Tower in Kumla Lumpur gets my vote.

What do you think? It is too obvious. I want to know what people think what else is better than just great Effel Tower.

I don't mean to be chauvinistic but I honestly think that it is one of the most iconic & magnificent towers in the world and probably the most popular worldwide. Furthermore it has a history!

You had better say that you don't like it/'re jealous rather than talking nonsense. Its 'shape is ugly, the colour is dull & is just an oldish overrated steel structure', that's probably why the Eiffel tower has been the most copied tower in the world (the list is long), the latest being built in India by the way!

Its 'dull colour' is not unique as they change it every 7 years (there are 3 different colours), besides it's been repainted for over a year now & will be finished in 2011. They use 60 tons of paint(the colour is a secret & is unique in the world).

I invite you to enquire about it, you need it! I'm sure you'll feel less ignorant afterwards. A bon entendeur...

Oriental Pearl Tower, just for the colored spheres. Seattle Space Needle is a close second place.
