Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur

(4.4/5 based on 19,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Petronas towers is an amazing building, the visit it's very recommendable. But the price is high and over all the time is limited. We anted to be more time. Warm staff 
  • I visited the Petronas Twin Towers during Dec 2106 around 7:30pm! Initial impressions of this 451.9m tall architectural structure was mesmerizing. It was amazing crossing the sky bridge. The night vie...  more »
  • The place is always crowded, much more at weekend. And it is so noisy in the mall. But as this is a must-see in KL, I would suggest you just take a photo outside. It looks nice.

  • From reading online and from word of mouth from locals in KL, it seems that getting tickets and wait times is a different experience for everyone. We showed up rather unplanned just before noon on a Thursday and got tickets to the 12:15 tour. So almost no wait. The tour isn't really a tour but more people telling you where to go and when to move on. The architecture is sleek and clean and the towers are exactly what they were meant to be - a statement. Read up on the history of the towers and how it coincides with Malaysia's development as a nation before you go. You're looking at more than architecture, it's a milestone moment for an emerging nation. Inside the tower, the elevator had no windows but video screens show you what it would be like if there were. The observation level provides great views of the city. I liked being able to look at the other tower with KL Tower in the background. There is a 6 story mall in the towers and so you can easily shop, dine, and sight see all from the towers. Not to mention the park outside. I should also say the staff were very helpful. I did all of this on crutches with a broken ankle and staff came to me to offer a wheelchair and help us navigate. It's worth the money to experience such an iconic place.
  • It's definitely worth queueing to get tickets to go on the tour. We got the at about 8:30 and it opened at 9 I think, there were about ten people ahead of us so we easily got tickets for the first tour of the day. The view for the bridge and the top is amazing. There is also a nice park to walk around at the bottom of the towers.
  • View is absolutely beautiful, as you'd expect. Staff were extremely friendly, and the whole interior of the building was very sleek and modern. Don't expect to get great pictures at the top though, especially in the evening - the observation room is entirely indoors, and the lighting is very bright, meaning there are bright reflections on all the windows. Additionally, the windows slope slightly meaning you cant get your camera flat against the glass to hide any reflections. Admittedly this probably wouldn't be an issue in the daytime, but for the night viewings I think they should definitely dim the inside lights a bit to reduce these reflections.
  • Magnificent looking towers that are fully lighted at night! Great place for taking photos. The Suria KLCC shopping mall is conveniently located just below it so you can shop after admiring the towers. They are office towers so you would need a reason to enter with security being quite tight understandably.
  • Always view from outside. The inside is overpriced but the view from the hotels and gardens surrounding are amazing... There is a skybar Thats free drinks for ladies on weds with stunning 34th floor views and no dress code, despite the hotels websites.
