Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur

4.5
#1 of 2,300 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.

  • I visited twin towers in January as part of my Malaysia tour. These majestic towers lit at night look amazing. Even my hotel room had the direct view of the towers  more »
  • As icon/landmark the Petronas Twin Towers, Malaysia must be entered in the list of terumata for the visit, the first visit to Kuala Lumpur. In my opinion, in the evening the photo better. However if during the day, can also relax in the garden near the tower. There are KLCC shopping center for alternative dining or shopping.

  • The two towers look surreal from below. Good shots can be made from either the front side at the main road or from the back through the park. Visiting the sky bridge and the spire will give you great views of Kuala Lumpur but you can only see one of the towers. For me the best time is around 1830 to go up. The sunset behind one of the towers look magnificent on a clear day. This time slot is also only for sale at the daily booking counter. You should be early sometimes up to 30 minutes during the season to be able to be among the first in the queue to be able to get them.
  • Wonderful place to hang around. Evening light and water fountain is amazing. One of the best I have seen in south Asia. Amazing ambience in the night. It's important to book in advance if you wanted to go on top of the tower and its closed on Sundays. Well designed for catching public transport. Just cross the road you will find metro.
  • One of the top tourist attraction in KL, everything is about it even all the majority of the souvenirs. Many people stand outside near the fountain to take good photos with the towers, however if you take a walk in the amazing park you will find many spots with clear shots of the towers specially at dark. Loved the park and the light show. The restaurants are good and there are enough choices to chose from. The shopping mall looked good and huge, however I wasn't interested in shopping so cannot right about it.
  • Legendary place of Kuala Lumpur. Most favourite attraction in Malaysia. This is a amazing landmark and if you go there at day time, you must go at the night time also. It's very beautiful at night with lights. But if you're planning to take a selfie you should have a good camera with or phone with good low light photo ability. There are many vendors with fish eye mobile lenses and i think their prices are reasonable. But be careful when you take out the money from your pocket or wallet.
  • I have visited Petronas Towers at night because the day time tickets were all sold out. Even though it was against our plan, we will enjoyed the visit. All the staff were friendly and helpful, the tour started on time. We were given sufficient time on the different levels to enjoy the view and take photos. The gift store has some lovely items with the decent prices.
