Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur


It was my second time in KL but its my first time to experience visiting the famous Petronas Twin Towers. After my short stop at the Chocolate Gallery earlier, I proceeded to Petronas Towers just to take photos. I originally planned to go to the sky bridge but I pretty much don’t have time anymore since I still have plans of going to Mallaca after visiting the Central Market.

The Petronas Twin Towers are also known simply as Petronas Towers and these building is known as one of the highest manmade structures in the world. As a first time visitor, I was totally impressed after seeing the building.

The construction of the building was completed in 1998 at a cost of approximately USD$1.6 billion. Based on simple Islamic geometric forms, they symbolize the concept of “unity within unity, harmony, stability and rationality.” The twin towers of Kualar Lumpur are a national and cultural icon and once considered as the tallest building in Asia.

One of the towers is occupied by Petroliam Nasional Bhd which is the company otherwise known as Petronas. The other tower however are being occupied by various multi-national companies like Al Jazeera English, Bloomberg, IBM and Accenture.

The Skybridge which connects the two towers is also one of the main attractions in the City. Located on the 41st floor, the bridge was designed to withstand even the windiest conditions that the weather might throw at it.

As I write this post, I can see the beautiful building from my window. I want to go back and spend time visiting the Petronas skybridge.. Maybe Sooon:)
