The Petronas Towers are a true icon of Kuala Lumpur. For most people, it is the first thing that comes to mind when they think of Malaysia’s capital. At 451 metres tall, the Petronas Twin Towers were the tallest buildings in the world until 2004. Now, they sit in third place, but that doesn’t take away their impressiveness, and they are still the tallest twin towers in the world. I personally think that their architectural style far surpasses those buildings that have out done them in height.
While I was in Kuala Lumpur, I visited the Petronas Towers twice. Located over the huge Suria KLCC shopping complex, the towers are very impressive during the day, but it is at night when their true beauty appears. The entire building is completely lit up, with its iconic two story sky bridge connecting the two towers on the 41st and 42nd floors. It truly is a sight to behold. I couldn’t take my eyes off of it.
Here are some of my photos of the Petronas Towers during the day and at night. Although the photos might impress you, this is one of those sites that needs to be seen in person to really appreciate it. If you visit Kuala Lumpur, don’t miss out on seeing them.
