As always when in Kuala Lumpur we visited the Petronas Twin Towers, the tallest twin towers in the world. This was our third visit.
We booked our tickets online. During our previous visits entry was free based on first come first serve basis with limited tickets available. Now it cost 80 MYR (ca. 18.30 Euro / ca. 25.00 USD) per person. There was something else new too.
A month before our visit the 86th floor was also opened for the public. Before we had only access to the 42nd floor double-decker bridge. We were curious what the world looked like from the 86th floor.
We arrived around 30 minutes before our chosen time and found the E-Ticket Counter closed. We asked a member of staff where we could go to now. He was also surprised the counter wasn’t open and brought us to the one for immediate purchase.
We could jump the queue to the dismay of the waiting customers. We didn’t keep the others too long. Within a minute we had our tickets in hand.
Shortly before our time slot our group was called forward. We received visitor badges and had to go through a metal detector. Soon afterwards we were whisked up to the Sky bridge.
We were given fifteen minutes, which is in our opinion too short, especially when you’re there the first time. We noticed other members of our group were a bit unhappy about the amount of time too. Otherwise we enjoyed the views and noticed some changes of the Kuala Lumpur skyline. The KLCC Park is unfortunately smaller now. There is also a huge building site around the mosque and another one for the planned Four Seasons hotel.
When our time was up we had to get into the elevator again and ended up at the 86th floor. There was an exhibition about the progress Malaysia has made in the last 50 years, Dr. Mahatir, Petronas and Kuala Lumpur. It also gave a glimpse what the future plans for the country are.
The views over the city were a bit hampered by fog and clouds. If the weather is good, the views should be stunning and far reaching.
The twenty minutes flew by, but were more appropriate than the fifteen minutes at the Sky bridge.
Of course no visit to the PETRONAS Twin Towers would be complete without having a browse at the gift shop. We ended up with a watch for him.
Would we return? Yes, we love this landmark and enjoy the views from the Sky bridge and the 86th floor.
Would we recommend a visit to this landmark to a friend? YES!
Would we visit again this landmark in the future? YES!
