The Petronas Twin Towers is the most eye-catching building in Kuala Lumpur as it stands majestically at a height of 451.9 meters tall. Visitors are allowed to visit the skybridge located on the 41st floor to get a great view of the city’s skyline. However, limited tickets are given out. Therefore, to ensure that you get one, do head to the Petronas Twin Towers early in the morning to queue for the tickets.

Galeri Petronas: Enjoy and Learn More About Art

Within the Petronas Twin Towers, there is also an art gallery which was set up to help promote the development and preservation of art in Malaysia. The Gallery has temporary exhibitions, workshops and an Artist in Residence.

Take note that prior booking is required for the workshop.

Walking Along Bukit Bintang: People-Watching and Window-Shopping
