Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur

4.4
#1 of 2,301 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.

  • Worth seeing is the main landmark of Kuala Lumpur. You don't have to go up, because the best thing is to see them off.

  • most amazing place in KL. superb structure and a must visit for all the tourist. It is not only a very tall but also a very huge structure. Big mall and shopping centre at the entry point and lots of other attractions in and around. purchase your ticket in advance otherwise you may not get it, if you are in KL and planning to visit the place better you go in the morning and purchase the tickets. visit to the structure is just wonderful. view from the top is worth seeing. see the pics in and around petronas tower
  • The most significant structure in Malaysia and I was thrilled to be here few months ago. Thanks to Mr. Felix Baumgartner, a world record was set here for Base jumping in the year 1999 (which was subsequently broken). The twin towers used to be the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004, and still remain the tallest twin towers ever built. There are several offices of renowned companies in Tower Two, while the Tower One's office spaces are primarily occupied by Petronas group. A humongous shopping mall is located in the bottom of the towers, with a beautiful park outside. Fascinating!
  • Starting from the early morning, in case you want your picture taken with less people and peaceful, you have to be there early around 8am, so that you can have all the space to your. Avoiding all the tourists coming from all destinations, especially on weekend. Oh, if you want to have a very nice picture of the towers, use panorama, you’ll love your picture for sure. My picture was taken by panorama. It’s easy, you also can take that.
  • Petronas Twin Towers provide a magnificent sight to KL's landscape. I recommend that you reach the city center in the evening while the sun is still up and stay till dark when the tower are lighted especially if you're interested in photographing the buildings. Parking available inside the complex starting at $4.00 (Malaysian Ringgit) an hour but you can always find one on the streets. Another item checked off my bucket list.
  • If anyone visit Malaysia, a must visit place as the landmark of Malaysia. Very beautiful tallest building. Breathtaking views from sky bridge and top floor. Friendly staff who guide and explain its history, features and specialty. Overall good experience never to be missed. My advice for those who wish to visit buy the online tickets from their official website mentioned here and you can choose your convenient date & time slot. Don't be mislead by unreliable 3rd party website advertisements and they charge exorbitant amount.
