Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur

4.4
#1 of 1,638 in Things to do in Malaysia
See an iconic postmodern structure at Petronas Twin Towers, a symbol of the modern nation and at one time the tallest buildings in the world. After seven years of construction, they officially opened in 1999 and include a retail center, park, twin spires, and two-story skybridge connecting the 41st and 42nd floors of each tower. The steel and glass facade displays a proud Islamic aesthetic influence. Walk the bridge between the two 451.9 m (1,483 ft) skyscrapers for unimpeded views of the city, and admire the well-designed interiors of these architectural landmarks. A visit to Petronas Twin Towers represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Kuala Lumpur itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

    Amazing architecture and wonderful views. You are allowed only ten minutes on the bridge before they move you up to the gift shop floor so you better hurry up to take as many photography angles as you can take. Not too much time to hang out or lolly gag up there for 85 Malaysian dollar.

    The most iconic buildings in the city, the Petronas twin towers have come to define downtown Kuala Lumpur. I stood in awe at the base of the towers, marveling this masterpiece of engineering. Even more impressive in person than in pictures!

    Fantastic place , great views from the bridge at 41 st floor and from the observation deck at 86th floor. Personally I enjoyed KL tower views more than this. If you are planning to go on weekends pls book the tickets online, otherwise it will be very difficult to get the tickets for morning slots. Stroller is not allowed in case if u have kids.

    It's a great building. The view was phenomenal. The staff was good. Too expensive for a small tour of the sky bridge and the top floor sky deck. Overall great experience.
