Petronas Twin Towers
At a dizzying height of nearly 457.2 meters (1500 feet), the Petronas Twin Towers, a pair of 88-story buildings, were the world's tallest buildings until 2004. Apart from offices, these awesome towers also house a state-of-the-art concert hallthe Petronas Philharmonic Hall, home of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestraas well as shopping arcades, restaurants, and a science museum. The designs on the towers are based on geometric patterns common in Islamic architecture. Special features of the towers include the double decker skybridge between the 41st and 42nd floors and double decker elevators. Admission is free, however tickets are limited and issued daily on a first-come-first-served basis.
Before you even get to go up to the skybridge, you can view the exhibit about the towers. Even if you do not get the free tickets for the skybridge, you can see the exhibit.
Before going up to the bridge, you view a 3D movie about the company and towers. After that, you are whisked up the elevator to the 42 (41?) floor. You are only alotted about 10 minutes before you are whisked back down to the ground. It was raining, so the view could have been better.
At the ground level, you exit in the exhibit. From there, it is a short walk to the gift centre where there is an interesting array of Petronas Towers gift items.
In summation, hey, its free!
u have to visit the twin towers coz that's what u're supposed to do when u visit KL even though the view from the top is not great. the free passes can usually be obtained upto 11am on weekdays, slightly earlier on weekends.
these towers are so amazing.you can't find any of these majestic twin buildings somewhere else other than kuala lumpur. plus, they place a very happening shopping mall at the base of the tower. overall, i'm really enjoyed myself being there.
I like this place coz it's a free entering place of interest.
I got souvenirs too, because i went there on the Independence day.
You can go there anytime you want, like me, on the independence day, it is one of the best time to visit. But you have to queue first and would get a ticket for the next an hour (if you queue in the morning). Don't be shocked if you queue at 10 am, but you got the ticket for 3pm.
But in ordinary days, I think, it won't be like that.
Twin tower is very massive structure to view. But they are issuing the limited ticket for SkyBridge walk where there is a big crowd gather since 6 a.m. It was really tough to get the ticket of the time you wish to do the sky walk.
i like Kuala lumpur b cause some of my relatives stay there.futhermore i like to stay at a hotel call The Zone because it have kitchenn i can call it as 5 STAR hotel. i wish 2 go back there on october.
Last year I had visited Paris and seen the Eiffel Tower. So when Ihad gone to KL last month I was a bit sceptical about being swept off my feet by the Petronas Towers. Moreover when I went to visit the towers I was suffering from fever. Coupled with this the dizziness I feel when I have to use the lift for any length of time made be feel a bit unsure about whether I wanted to get up into the towers.
However I am so glad that we did get to obtain free passes (thanks to the efforts made by a cousin and her husband who had gone out of their way to make the entire visit to KL so memorable for us) and get up to the viewing bridge. Dr. Nira Konar, India
For security reasons visitors are allowed to go up only to the 41st storey, though the tower has 88 storeys.To my amazement it took only 41seconds to reach to the 41st storey. The view from the observing bridge was breathtaking. One got to see a great stretch of KL.
Standing there with my loved ones I had a feeling of sheer joy,almost akin to the one I had when I had stood on Tower Bridge in London. I thanked God for offering me such a special moment in my life when I had taken in so much of beauty and had been able to take in a landmark beauty which not many people get a chance to see in their lifetime though they might yearn to do so.
For security reasons visitors are not alowed to be on the towers for long so we could spend only 10to 15 minutes though we would have loved to linger longer.
On our way back home a brought a fridge magnet of the tower and today when I look at it I am reminded of that sunny but windtossed moments of happiness while at the Petronas Towers.
What a great place!! I love the shopping malls, I love the food, I love everthing about this place. My number one must visit place if Im in KL. That bulding is very amazing, very beautiful. Unfortunately, when I visited there just this early June, I didnt get a chance to join the skywalk thing coz I never got the ticket. Poor me! But nevermind, maybe next time. Above all, I love this spot!!
