about petronas twin towers

For breathtaking views of the city of Kuala Lumpur, walk up the Petronas Twin Towers. It is world's tallest twin building and once upon a time, world's tallest building until Taipei 101 shot past it. Designed by architect Cesar Pelli with a distinctive post-modern architectural style, it took around 5 years for the twin towers to be completed in 1999 with its building process breaking several records itself. With 88 floors in each tower, the facades of which resemble Islamic art motifs. The sharp needle-like pinnacles you see atop the twin towers are 241-feet tall with one having been made in Korea and the other in Japan.


Inside the twin towers is Suria KLCC, a high-end, upscale retail center that in addition to luxury retail brands also features an art gallery, aquarium, a science center and a philharmonic theater. Below the building is KLCC Park that has jogging paths with fountains featuring light shows and massive pools to swim in. Possibly the most fascinating aspect of Petronas Towers is the skybridge. The skybridge connects the two towers at the 41st and 42nd floor and can actually slide in and out of the towers. In a given day only 1,000 people are allowed to cross it for which the entry is ticketed.


During high, strong winds the towers actually tend to sway on their spot. Petronas Twin Towers is a popular site for movie shots, especially action sequences. It is at the 86th floor of the towers where the observation deck is situated and stunning views of the city's skyline and landscape can be captured.

So charming; these twins!

The twins here are definitely more charming that their other contemporaries. Its not about how tall they are (Burj Khalifa) and how other stellar towers of the world take more prominence beyond it (Empire State), but simply the fact that the Petronas ...... read more
