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 to offices while it is also a major tourist attraction in the world. The construction work on the towers had started in the year 1993 while it was inaugurated in the year 1999. The design and architecture of the building are a marvel of engineering and reflect the efforts of the workers.

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 in the 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 building. 

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. Get more info about what are the different types of towing equipment here.
