The astonishing Petronas twin towers were once the tallest buildings in the world. The 88-story towers are 452 meters tall. They were designed to reflect the development of the Malaysian architecture. More than two graceful skyscrapers, Petronas Twin Towers present a big step for the nation. They are the proud of the Malaysian people and an iconic landmark of the city just like the tower Eiffel in Paris.

Both towers are mainly occupied by international companies however there are plenty of shopping and entertainment opportunities for public. The spacious KLCC Park, KL convention center and Petronas Art Gallery are the best places to start your visit. Moreover, the discovery center offers pure fun for children with its interactive experience.

Between the two towers, stands the the Dewan Filharmonik Petronas concert hall, one of the best concert halls in the world. It hosts classical music performances and orchestras. At the level 86, there is an observation deck, where visitors can contemplate the fantastic views of the Malaysian capital.
