Petronas Twin Tower

WP Kuala Lumpur

"The world-famous Petronas Twin Towers are certainly the pride of Malaysia. The 451.9 metres high towers were the tallest building from 1998 to 2004 and remain the world’s tallest twin towers. The 88-storey skyscraper was designed by Argentine-American architect, César Pelli, to resemble motifs inspired by Islamic art...."

If you are eager to see more of Georgetown’s finest arts, head over to Hin Bus Depot; a community art space where emerging new artists showcase their talents. There are exhibitions, pop up markets, art performances, souvenir shops, and cafes located inside the depot. For a more colourful experience, you can head over to Georgetown’s Little India, a vibrant area filled with colourful saree shops, spices grocery stores, temples, and Indian eateries.

Built on the site of Kuala Lumpur’s race track, the Selangor Turf Club, the construction of the towers began on 1 April 1994, and on 31 August 1999, the building was officially opened.

The iconic towers are connected by the world’s highest double-decker skybridge on level 41 and 42. This 58.4 metres long bridge is open to all visitors to have a view of the surrounding area, at a height of 170 metres. However, admission tickets are limited and it’s on a first-come-first-serve basis.

 

 

"Besides the skybridge, there are also other attractions within the Petronas Twin Towers. Suria KLCC, an upmarket retail hub, is centrally located between the towers. Opened in 1998, this 140,000 square metres retail centre offers foreign luxury goods and high-street labels, mid-range retail chains, a cinema, and a wide choice of eateries...."

 

 

Suria KLCC also houses the Petronas Art Gallery and the Petrosains Discovery Centre. The latter is an interactive, experiential, and hands-on science centre with exhibits and workshops to encourage fun learning.

The Petronas Philharmonic Hall, the country’s first concert hall built specially for classical music and the home to the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra, is located at the podium level between the Petronas Twin Towers. It has hosted many world-famous orchestra, including the New York Philharmonic and Vienna Symphony

Within the KLCC precinct lies the KLCC Park, a 50-acre urban sanctuary designed by Brazilian architect, Roberto Burle Marx. It boasts a jogging track, a children’s playground and a wading pool. With benches placed around the park, you will be able to take your time to embrace the beauty of the surrounding area.
