The Petronas Twin Towers are the highest skyscrapers in Kuala Lumpur. In fact, The Twin Towers were the tallest buildings in the world from the year 1998 to 2004 until the Taipei 101 came along. The base of the Towers is the Suria KLCC. This 1,500,000 sq ft shopping haven is the place where you can shop for luxury goods and designer labels. In the KLCC are also an art gallery, the Aquaria KLCC (the underwater world), a philharmonic theater and the Petrosains Center. To find the Petronas Twin Towers, you just need to get to KLCC.


The Petronas Twin Towers stands tall at 88 floors high. One major attraction of the Towers is the Twin Towers Skybridge between the two towers at the 41st and 42nd floor. The Skybridge has also made a mark in the record books for being the highest 2-storey bridge in the world. The unique fact about this bridge is that it is not attached to the main structure but instead, it is designed to slide in and out of the towers to prevent any breakage. It also functions to provide some support to the structure of the Towers when winds are strong.

The Skybridge is by far the most anticipated feature of the Towers as the view from the bridge is simply breath-taking. The admission to the bridge is free of charge but visitors are required to get a pass which is issued on a limited number each day. There is no surprise if you see a long queue as early as 7am in the morning just to get the pass. Other attraction at the Towers involves spending a lot of money because Suria KLCC has a wide range of goods from all over the world. You can shop still you drop or you can shop till your legs say stop. A piece of advice, do not wear heels. Shopping at Suria KLCC may cause you some muscle aches. Other than the myriads of shops selling luxury goods, Suria KLCC restaurants are also plentiful. You can choose from high end restaurants to the food court there.

If all the shopping and eating is just too much to handle, you can make way to the KLCC Park which spans to an area of 17 acres. The KLCC Park is complete with jogging and walking paths, wading pools, children's playground and also a fountain with light show. There are much more places to visit in the Suria KLCC as well as its surrounding. Do not waste the chance to explore this exciting area because there is just so much happening at the same time. Hotels in KL have ample rooms to cater to visitors. If you would like to stay in the city center, there are also many hotels in Kuala Lumpur itself.


You can get to the Petronas Twin Towers either by foot or by taxi. The Towers are located between Jalan Raja Chulan and Jalan Ampang, You can walk to the Towers if you have opted to stay at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel or The Ascott. However, if you did not stay nearby, the cheaper means of transportation will be via the LRT. All you need to do is to get on to any Putra LRT line and stop at the KLCC station.
