Petronas Twin Towers were once the highest skyscrapers of the world which is in centre of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. If you are in Kuala Lumpur don’t miss this beautiful iconic building.
The major attraction of this twin towers is world’s highest two storey skybridge between two towers at 41st and 42nd floor.
This beautiful building consists of 88 floors and soars to a height of 452 meters. You can even ascend to higher floor 86 to see the breath-taking views of Kuala Lumpur city from the top.
Beautiful by day and colourful at night which makes the towers more attractive if you watch over from the distance.
If shopping is your thing you won’t be disappointed while you are in Twin towers. On the bottom of the twin towers, there is big shopping mall named as Suria KLCC.
Inside the towers, you can also find Petronas art gallery, KLCC aquaria underwater, Petronas Musical concert hall, Science centre.
If you come outside the towers you can find beautifully landscaped KLCC Park at the back side of the mall which is quite nice to chill together with travellers or locals.
The KLCC park is filled with playground, jogging track and big fountains and lush greenery. You can find at the night there will be a light show with water for one to two hours of light music. They look particularly amazing and beautiful when illuminated with different colours of light at night from the park. Everyone can enjoy the show and music from different places in the park. It is also a popular romantic meeting place for couples and family. Don’t waste this chance to explore this exciting area there is much more what you can imagine. Your visit to KL would not be complete without visiting these twin towers.
If you want to view the towers and lighting at KLCC park from special view at night from the far, you can go to sky bar at Traders hotel. The area surrounding the KLCC Petronas towers is always full of traffic and people from all over the places.
To visit skybridge at 41st, 42nd floor and observation deck at 86th floor, one must need to purchase a ticket at the ticket counter in concourse level or in online through advanced booking. Either you must book early in online or you must go early morning to get the ticket which is opposite the Petronas twin towers gift shop in the lower level (concourse level). Each visitor is issued only one ticket. The queue will be sometimes more in the early morning to get the tickets even though the tickets are limited to around 800 per day due to a large number of people who want to visit the towers. They will only allow 20 people per group in sky bridge, that means they will allow 20 people for each floor which 41st and 42nd floor include total 40 people for 45 minutes. Tickets are time slotted so you can choose the preferred date and timings if the time slot is available online or through a counter. The ticket prices for the skybridge and observation desk varies. You can check the price details and time slots by visiting this link here.
New year celebrations will be held 15 min very grand here in towers. you have to come so early and sit at the KLCC Park to visit the fireworks along with Twin towers. If you are standing infront of Twin towers you will be disappointed because there will be so many people that you can’t even see the fireworks while standing infront of towers.
Along with the normal views, you can also see the golden statue at Batu caves if you have binoculars from the observation deck. Visit this website for more details: www.petronastwintowers.com.my
How to reach:
- Every 5 minutes there is train LRT from KL Sentral to KLCC which passes through Pasar Seni station (china town). The KLCC LRT station is right below the Suria KLCC and twin towers so you can easily walk through from the LRT station to Petronas towers. I would recommend the train which is easy to go and takes less time to reach
- There are also GOKL (pink colour) buses which Malaysian government kept for free tourism around KL. You need to get on the red line bus to get to terminal Pekeliling to get down and hop on blue line bus which takes you to pavilion near Bukit Bintang. Get down at pavilion catch the green line bus which takes you to KLCC. I would recommend this to travellers who don’t want to spend their money on sightseeing. There is also some RapidKL buses which lead to KLCC from KL Sentral you can ask at the counter infront of KL Sentral mall.
- If you want to have a comfortable walk through Bukit Bintang area in KL, you need to reach pavilion mall inside and there is a pedestrian bridge which connects directly to Impian KLCC hotel. From there get down the elevator and pass through aquaria, you will find the tunnel leading to the KLCC towers. The walking distance is about 1.2 km long from pavilion to KLCC. The pedestrian bridge closed from 11pm.
You can come by grab or taxi, drivers will take around 10-20RM. Don’t pay more than that to any taxi driver. I won’t recommend coming by car or taxi unless you have a family with more than 3 people.
