Saloma Bridge

If night photography is your thing, then Saloma Bridge is the hottest night spot in KL for 2021! After taking pictures of another night icon, the PETRONAS Twin Towers, getting there is easy as the bridge is located at the back of Menara Public Bank. Going to Saloma is approximately 10 minutes walk from the front of the PETRONAS Twin Towers.

About Saloma Bridge

Saloma Bridge is 69 metres (226 ft) combined pedestrian and bicyclist bridge across the Klang River in Kuala Lumpur. The purpose of this bridge is to connect Kampung Baru and Kuala Lumpur City Center (KLCC) as it will only take seven to eight minutes to get from one end to the other.

The bridge’s architecture is inspired by the sireh junjung (betel nut leaf arrangement) concept, which is an integral part of a Malay wedding. The concept of this bridge is also similar to the Bridge of Peace in Tbilisi, Georgia where the LED lights illuminate to change patterns from time to time. The lights of the bridge change for any celebration or holidays which Malaysia has many!

Saloma Bridge is the most exquisite pedestrian bridge ever built in Kuala Lumpur and is already a popular tourist attraction in KL City nightlife.

How to get to Saloma Bridge

There are two ways to get to the Saloma Bridge and it depends on which part of KL you are located at.

You need to walk along Lorong Saloma which is beside the Public Bank Building. When you arrive at the junction of Jalan Ampang, look for Lorong Saloma on the left of the Public Bank building. Walk along that road for 100 meters and you will come to the entrance.

There will be some local restaurants and a car wash on the left as you walk along Lorong Saloma. At the end of the road, there is an open public parking lot that charges RM1.50 for 30 minutes. After 6pm there is a flat rate of RM6 to park there.

  • Kampung Baru

You can either drive or take the LRT train here. There are various free and paid parking nearby the bridge.  If you take the LRT, get off at the Kampung Baru LRT stop, then walk to the start of the bridge at Lorong Raja Muda Musa 3.

From the Kampung Baru entrance, there is an elevator and a three-story staircase which means that the elderly and disabled can use the elevator. Plus, there are many street vendors just in front of the elevator to get to the bridge if you want to grab a bite or some snacks.

If you take the stairs, there are a total of 82 steps to the top and for security, there is a security table by the elevator on the ground level.

It was a fun and really memorable night. The bridge which connects two parts of KL one modern and the other cultural represents how far we have come but still maintaining our heritage. Come on down and visit KL’s newest nightspot Saloma Bridge while you are it don’t forget to try the delicious foods of Kampung Baru.
