Petronas Kuala Lumpur – World’s Tallest Twin Towers

At an astounding 452 meters in height, Petronas Twin Towers dominates the Kuala Lumpur skyline in Malaysia. While in Kuala Lumpur, I couldn’t possibly miss out seeing this man-made architectural wonder. The 88-floor towers are constructed of concrete with a steel and glass front. The Petronas Towers are the worlds ‘tallest freestanding’ twin towers, housing an assortment of office buildings, shopping complex, a contemporary concert hall and the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra in the Petronas Malaysia Philharmonic Hall. The ‘stainless steel’ look gives the building a shiny new appearance and picture perfect moments. Petronas Towers are joined only at the 41st and the 42nd floors where the Sky Bridge is. Walking along the Sky Bridge is one of the main events when you’re visiting this magnificent building. While on the Sky Bridge, you can enjoy panoramic views of Kuala Lumpur skyline and city center. Many architects describe this special pattern as symbolizing stability, unity, harmony and rationale that are all important Islamic principles. Here are some pictures I had the pleasure of taking while visiting the amazing Petronas Towers.

  1. I’ve seen the Petronas Towers from the bottom, but none of us wanted to get up at 5 a.m. To secure tickets for going up to the Skybridge. I’ll have to look into using a private tour guide as you mentioned the next time I’m in KL.

    Stunning photos, particularly those of the view from the top. I actually visited last year, but typically it rained so it didn’t look quite as pretty! Still an amazing experience though!

    I haven’t been to that part of the world but I’d certainly visit for the views – more than the shopping. They certainly dominate the skyline at night.

  4. I was in KL recently for a short transit and popped over to the Petronas Towers do a bit of shopping. I wish I had gone to the 42nd floor to see the view instead! Great photos

      They now charge a fee to visit Skybridge level and 86th floor, and only a limited number of tickets are issued each day. Luckily our private tour guide secured tickets early in the morning (around 5 he said). Hope this might come in handy if you visit next time.

  5. I don’t think I’ve ever seen pictures of the sky bridge or the Petornas’ interior. Thanks for taking us on a tour. Beautiful buildings I would love to see one of these days. Beautiful shots!

  6. That view is incredible!

  7. It’s pretty! Seeing the whole skyline view of the busy city of Malaysia through Petronas Tower is fantastic.

  8. I love these shots. I haven’t seen many other pics taken of the inside walkway. Cool. Would love to do there.

  10. Sadly I have no idea when I’ll ever make it to KL, but if I do I hope to see the towers. Part of me also hopes to see Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta Jones there but that’s not a deal breaker ;). Thanks for the picures!
