The Magnificent Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur

Petronas Towers Kuala Lumpur

One of the icons of Malaysia are the magnificent Petronas Towers in the center of Kuala Lumpur. At a height of 1,483 ft (452 m), they are currently the tallest twin towers in the world. Standing at the base almost makes them seem unreal.

Touring Inside the Towers

I enjoyed the view of the towers the most at night (obviously), but took a tour and went up in them during the day. The tour started by going up to the Skybridge at about 558 ft (170 m). The bridge connects the 2 towers between the 41st and 42nd floors. While there are actually 88 floors, the 86th floor is as high as you can go and where the Observation Deck is. The 2 upper floors are for maintenance, antennas, etc. You can really see how hazy the city is when you’re all the way up there. I’d only recommend doing the tour on a pretty clear day so you can see further.

Night Time at the Towers

Night time is the best time to go and see the Petronas Towers. I honestly couldn’t take enough pictures of them at night, so here are a few of my favorites.

Have you visited the Petronas Towers? If so, what did you think? If not, they are definitely a site to see in Kuala Lumpur.

Disclosure: This trip and the tour were sponsored by Tourism Malaysia. However, as always, all opinions are my own.
