. A popular tourist attraction, the grand view granted by these platforms includes KK's famous skyline, open sea and islands of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park
, and west to east of the city until Jesselton Point
. A restaurant serves snacks, meals and drinks on an airy deck adjoining both towers, while steel benches occupy the sidewalk along the bluff - an incredibly popular spot to catch sunset views. Atkinson Clock Tower
also sits at the base of Signal Hill near Padang Merdeka's entry point.
