Petronas Twin Towers

A highlight of a trip to Kuala Lumpur, the views from the skybridge at the Petronas Twin Towers are amazing day and night. Each morning 1,700 passes are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis to visitors who want to visit the skybridge. It’s best to start queuing at 7 a.m., as most tickets are gone by 9 a.m.
The views from the ground are equally incredible as you gaze up at the 88-story gleaming towers that reach 1,483 feet (452 meters) into the air. The floor plan was designed with the Islamic eight-pointed star in mind, and the five sections of the skyscraper reflect the five-pillars of Islam.
Beneath the Petronas Towers is  KLCC Park, a large urban area with jogging tracks, a playground and wading pools. There is also the huge Suria KLCC shopping mall with a number of good restaurants.

Practical Info

If you catch a taxi ask to be taken to KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Centre) all taxi drivers will understand and know the way. If you’re catching public transportation then from Sentral station take the Putra light rail to KLCC. The monorail will drop you 10-minute walk from the towers at Concorde Hotel on Jalan Sultan Ismail.
