The Petronas Towers are some of the highest
buildings in the world. They are 452 meters tall. Following the most
recent details: the Bamboo Shoot in Taiwan is at this moment the highest building in the world.
KL-Tower in Kuala Lumpur is just a little bit higher than the Petronas Towers,
but that's a little joke: the KL-Tower (Telecommunication Tower) has been built on a
hill and that's why it is a bit higher.
The two towers are connected by a sky bridge.
When you want to visit the towers, then the sky bridge is the highest point you
can get. At this level is also a restaurant located.
If you would like to visit the towers, I would like to advise you to collect your tickets
(RM 10.-) do that before ten o'clock. Otherwise it would become late afternoon to go up the
tower. If you collect your ticket early in the morning, than there is on
the ticket the exact time, when you should be at the elevator to go up.
Do you come at ten o'clock, the exact time should probably 13.00 to go
up to the sky bridge.
You can collect your free tickets at the ground floor.
The elevator, which brings you to the sky bridge, is
located in the basement of the building. The elevator goes very fast and you should take your pictures very fast,
because you're not allowed to stay very long long on the bridge. After 5 or 10 minutes you're
ordered to go down.
It's certainly worth a visit. You shouldn't miss it.
You can see the Petronas Towers almost everywhere in the city. And when you're
staying in the Golden Triangle, you can go walking.
At the feet of the Petronas Towers is the trendy
shopping mall "Suria KLCC" located. The shopping mall has very
expensive shops like: Armani, Chopard, Hermes, Gucci.
In these Petronas Towers are also a cinema, concert hall, conference hall an
some prayer room for the Muslim.
At the highest level (6) is a small museum of the Petronas Oil Company, of which
Malaysia is very proud.
When you're renting a car in Malaysia, you will see a lot of petroll stations of
the Petronas Oil Company.
The building was designed by Cesar
Pelli and has by its rounding some Islamic influences.
There are 88 floors and for building the Towers the used a lot of steel and
glass. This skyscraper has 32.000 windows en mostly used as a office building.
