In the middle of the busy Kuala Lumpur city, standing tall like two giant candles are the Petronas Towers that was once the tallest buildings in the world. At exactly four hundred and fifty-two meters in height, the exterior of the building is covered with glass panels and stainless steel panels protecting the interior from the sunlight and providing a sound proof comfortable set up for those who are inside the building. The interior is decorated with traditional Malaysian handicrafts and even the wallpapers used for decoration are inspired by hardwood carvings that belong to the countries east coast.
The most fascinating element of this building is the sky bridge which joins the two towers. The view from this bridge is breathtakingly beautiful and you would always find long queues formed by visitors who are waiting to experience the beauty of Kuala Lumpur from up above. For those shopaholics who don’t mind walking from shop to shop, the best place here is Suria KLCC. With hundreds of shops to choose from, make sure you save one entire day for the Petronas Towers. Restaurants at Suria range from the usual food court to the high-end luxurious restaurants that offer a wide variety of cuisine.

The park at KLCC covers a huge area and includes fun things for everyone. The landscaping is so beautiful that you could sit for hours and relax just enjoying the surrounding. For those who like to keep fit, jogging tracks and walking paths are created around the park. The beautiful water fountain that is located in the park area, with its beautiful lights is truly a sight to see at night. A wading pool is also there for the children to have some fun while the adults relax. After spending an entire day at the Petronas Towers you can walk or take a taxi if you stay nearby.
