Petronas Twin Towers
The symbol of modern KL
What we say:
The city's most recognisable landmark, no photo album of KL is complete with at least one picture of the Twin Towers.
Even if you are not a fan of massive skyscrapers, they are undoubtedly an impressive sight, particularly when lit up at night. The best place to take pictures (from ground level) is KLCC Park, but probably the greatest view of all is from Sky Bar at Trader's Hotel.
Up until 2008, tours to the 41st floor Skybridge, which links the two towers, were free, but getting a ticket was somewhat of a challenge. Since the price was hiked for foreigners to 50 ringgit, it has become somewhat easier to buy tickets. As a bonus, the tour now includes some time at the 86th floor observation deck.
The tours run from 09:00 to 19:00 every day, except on Mondays, and during Friday prayers (13:00-14:30). The ticket office opens at 08:30, and it's best to get there by that time to stand a good chance of getting tickets.
If you have the choice, opt for a tour as early or late as possible, when the views are least affected by air pollution.
