Visiting the Petronas Twin Towers is a must for anyone in Kuala Lumpur. The Petronas Towers hold the record for being the tallest twin towers in the world. The towers which stand at 1,483 feet tall used to be the tallest structure in the world until 2006. Blending modern design and technologies with traditional Malaysian accents the Petronas Towers stand out among the other skyscrapers.

I visited the towers on a rather gloomy day but I was still impressed with the view. After queuing and going through security we got a safety demonstration from a hologram. Then up the elevators we went. Our first stop was the bridge that connects the towers. Interestingly we were told the bridge was actually a suspension bridge. On windy days you could even feel it sway which seemed to me to defy gravity.
Nevertheless looking down I could see the gorgeous gardens and park below.
After spending 15 minutes on the bridge it was time to head up another two elevators. Everything is timed and you go with your colored group. Don’t worry you will get plenty of time for photos. Once we reached the top it was a dizzying experience just looking down. Everything looked so tiny and even on a cloudy day the view was incredible. Once our time was done we were ushered down the elevators again. I strolled the park and got to shoot the towers from down below.
This was one of the highlights in KL visiting the Petronas Twin Towers and I plan to head back to the towers on a clear day.
