Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The Petronas Towers, the tallest twin towers in the world, cost over $1.6 billion dollars and seven years to build. Their sparkling presence on the skyline of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia punctuates the night sky with an exuberance and electricity that has to be seen.
There are not one, but two soaring skyscrapers, joined in the very middle by a skybridge that you can walk across and take pictures from. You will also want to visit the Observation Deck at the top of Tower 2 on the 86th floor for even more spectacular views.
In addition to the Observation Deck facility, the Petronas Towers offers sightseeing packages that includes the ability to dine in the formerly very exclusive members-only Malaysian Petroleum Club restaurant, which is an unusual move and one that makes a visit to this most famous landmark in Malaysia very special. Imagine the views! And because Petronas, the national oil company of Malaysia, is located in the tower, you may be bumping into the movers and shakers of the world’s oil industry when you dine at their private restaurant.
The towers are undeniably representative of the future of Malaysia. They are riveting and promising of a bright economic future. (Don’t miss visiting the glamorous shopping mall at the bottom of the towers and taking a peak at the magnificent concert hall as well!)
