Petronas Towers, the tallest twin towers in the World

The Petronas Towers are the tallest twin towers in the world and the individual tower
remained the tallest building in the world from 1998 to 2004. The towers are known in
the world under various names such as Menara Berkembar Petronas and Menara
Petronas. The towers are located in Malaysia in the city of Kuala Lumpur. Today, it is a
commercial building in the city with most of its floors dedicated for offices while it is

We were in Australia for the last couple of weeks traveling through different cities and
tourist destinations. After discovering most of this country, we decided to travel to
Malaysia, which is close by, and the flights are easily available. We reached here in the
first week of September and booked a hotel in the city of Kuala Lumpur. It is the capital
of the country and an iconic city. We had reached here in the evening so we decided to
go for a walk in the city. There is widespread commercial area gleaming with lights of
shops and malls. We spent hours walking in the city and we found that the city rarely
sleeps. When the fatigue of travel got to us, we went back to our hotel for rest.

Visiting the Petronas Towers

We had slept late at night so we kept sleeping until the afternoon. We refreshed and
spent a few hours planning for our night out today. Sun was setting when we were fully
prepared to leave for the Petronas Towers. Visiting the towers at evening is more fun
since, after office hours, most of the shops and shopping centers open in the evening.
We reached the towers’ building when it was gleaming in full lights. We went to the
park behind the towers, which has a beautiful waterfall and fountains. We spent an

hour relaxing in the clam of this place before we went to the front of the towers. We
took memorable pictures with towers in the background before going inside the

Shopping in the Petronas Towers

Most of the shops and shopping centers in the Petronas Towers are occupied by luxury
brands while there are food courts for the food lovers. We went shopping and bought
clothes, shoes, and jewelry mostly from local brands. Things here are usually expensive
but of high quality. We also visited the sky bridge between the two towers and went to
the 86th floor of the building. The scenes from here are marvelous and a bird’s eye of
the city becomes a source of excitement. In the end, we went to the Petrosains, which is
a popular discovery center in the building.
This is a huge building with so much to discover and we had to come back the next day
in order to fully explore the magnificence of this place.
