The Petronas Twin Towers are located on Jalan Ampang in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They are the highest twin towers in the world and represent a modern architectural icon. This prominent local landmark has become a popular tourist attraction for sightseeing and entertainment.
The Petronas Towers are joined between a double-level Skybridge that is both a visitor interest and valuable structural feature. At the base of the Petronas Towers is the popular Suria KLCC, a shopping and entertainment venue offering dining options as well as an underwater aquarium and science centre. An observation deck overlooking the sprawling city and its respective gift shop are other headlining attractions.
Kuala Lumpur’s comprehensive public train system is the most efficient way of getting around the city, and the Petronas Towers are served by the KLCC Station. It is less than an hour from the Kuala Lumpur airport via train, taxi, or bus.
The Petronas Towers are recognised as a modern landmark for the city of Kuala Lumpur originally blueprinted by architect Cesar Pelli. Careful construction of the precarious superstructure took place from 1994 to its official opening in 1999. Reinforced concrete, steel, and glass were combined to enact a solid structural edifice with a modern exterior facade and Islamic culture influences.
