Tourism: Kuala Lumpur's "Eye on Malaysia" exceeds expectations

The "Eye on Malaysia" giant Ferris wheel at Titiwangsa Lake Garden, has established itself as a major attraction in Kuala Lumpur.

Tourism Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the wheel, like the "London Eye", had received encouraging response from the public, attracting over one million visitors until September compared to the targeted 300,000 in a year.

The 60-metre Eye on Malaysia was launched by Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi a year ago in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2007.
