Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur

4.5
#1 of 2,492 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.

  • Buy tickets through the website registration process not become strained. On the right wing for tickets. Bought in 11:00 in the evening after 15:00 on all the time the tickets were gone. Fly away like hotcakes. Visited the Tower everything is fine and even comfortable. Small group, no one is shoving, pictures do not crowd, time enough. Apparently on the tickets, problems arise because the groups are not large. Baggage offer at the entrance to pass, so if you have something in your hands is not a problem.

  • Fantastic. The views were great We went at night fall so all the buildings were lit up. We had sufficient time in each of the zones. The walkway, observation deck and the shop. Numbers were managed so it did not fell over crowded. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Best buy the tickets before arrival to guarantee access. If I come back to KL I will definitely go up again but during the day. Highly recommended.
  • Unfortunately the day that we visited Kuala Lumpur, the city was covered by a thick cloud of smoke, due to a big fire (the stupid human activity of burning the rain forest) happening in the neighbor country of Indonesia. It was so bad that the authorities were giving anti pollution masks for free. We left the hostel, and we found ourselves in a surreal world, where the visibility was incredibly scarce and ash was falling from the sky. It looked like a horror movie set. Very sad. Fortunately, by the time we reached the majestic Petronas Towers, the air condition got much better, and we were able to see them in all their splendor. Kuala Lumpur has an amazing skyline and ,for sure, is one of the favourite places to visit, for those who love modern architecture. If I'm not mistaken, they hold the title of the tallest twin towers in the world, and they are very easy to recognize due its unique shape. Two modern skyscrapers featuring an Islamic kind of architecture. A visit inside the complex was forbidden that day, still because of the haze. Hopefully soon we'll be back in KL so that we can do a proper tour of the towers. Even though we only saw them from outside, it was still an awesome experience! PS A special mention goes to the pyrotechnical show that the fountain in front of the towers offers. It happens every day, when the night comes, and it's very fun to watch.
