So you think rooftop restaurants are cool? Dinner in the Sky takes that concept and raises it by about 50 metres. Operating in 43 countries, the company dangles diners mid-air while they tuck into a five-course meal in their own custom-built, open-air pod.

They've done London, Vegas and even Sydney back in 2013 (the crane hovered over Moore Park to soak up city and harbour views), but now, Dinner in the Sky is taking over Kuala Lampur, Malaysia, for the month of August. It's the first time diners have been sent sky high in South East Asia and there's clearly a strong market - tickets for the twice-daily dinners, which sell for approx. AU$213, sold out within hours.

Those lucky enough to nab a ticket will be dining on miso black cod, yuzu caviar, confit country hen and Jivara Grand Cru chocolate Valhrona, while gazing out at Kuala Lampur's city skyline at sunset. Suddenly, revolving restaurants don't seem that exciting anymore.
