Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur

4.5
#1 of 2,305 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.

  • We were really lucky with the weather and were able to get a reasonably good view of KL from the 86th floor. The tour takes you up to the sky ridge on the 50th floor then up again to the 86th floor. T...  more »

  • It's exceptional... You can reach there easily. There is free bus line(green line) or you can reach by metro. Also there is shopping mall so you can spend time in there. There is a park next to towers and you can walk and sit there for a while for relaxing. If u wanna see there there a lot of roof bar available around the towers.
  • The most beautiful landmark I've seen so far. My friend say we can climb upto the bridge connecting two towers. But we went during night so couldn't buy tickets. There is a huge park next to it and a water fountain on the other side. Its a great place to visit with your friends and family.
  • 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.
