I believe KLCC Petronas Twin Towers is one of the must visit areas in Kuala Lumpur and I was excited to take the whole family there. On my last visit, we made a mistake of not buying the tickets ahead of time which meant we wasted a few hours waiting for our turn. This time I bought our tickets from Sydney for our preferred day and time and we didn’t have to wait to go to the top of the tower.
The Petronas Twin Towers were the tallest towers in the world from 1998 until 2004, when Taipei 101 in Taiwan was built.
These towers are one of the main tourist attractions in Malaysia and tourists can visit organized tours to Sky Bridge and the Observation Deck.
When we arrived a few minutes before our visit time, we were given lanyards to wear and wait for others in the queue to go up. We were given brief safety instruction and we were on our way to Sky Bridger on the 41st floor which was 170 meters above the ground.
The Sky Bridge connects the two towers together and is a double-decker structure with Level 41 being for visit operations and Level 42 being for private use by office tenants.
The sky-bridge is designed to not be physically attached to the two towers allowing for swaying of the buildings during high winds.
We were told we had 10 minutes to enjoy the views and take our photos. It was enough time for us to observe our surrounding and take photos. Chhori was having the time of her life running around and looking out the glass windows.
Once our time was up, we assembled again and were taken to another elevator which took us to the 86th floor to Observation Deck where we got 15 minutes.
While we enjoyed the view, one of their staffs came around and took a few photos from their cameras. He was nice enough to take some from our cameras too.
As we finished on the Observation Deck, we went back to ground floor through souvenir shop where you could buy merchandise and also buy your photographs taken earlier by the staff.
Overall we have a great time going to the Petronas Twin Towers.
After the tower, we decided that we would do a quick shopping in the mall. It was close to Chinese New Year so we saw lots of decorations still hanging everywhere.
I went and bought a few shoes and went out to the KLCC Park where we managed to capture some nice photos with the towers in the background.
By then it was lunch time so we went out and had our lunch. I have always loved Malaysian cuisines and it was a treat to be able to choose from so many options. AS and my parents loved the food as well.
I will write more about our trip in my next post, till then take care everyone.
