Petronas Twin Towers Tours

The twin 88-story steel and glass buildings known as the Petronas Twin Towers, completed in 1996, are icons of Malaysia. Designed to symbolize courage and the country’s advancement, the two towers are connected by a double-decker Skybridge between the 41st and 42nd floor—the world’s highest two-story bridge of its kind—to form the shape of an “M” for Malaysia.

The Basics
The views from the Petronas Twin Towers are a highlight of a trip to Kuala Lumpur. The 1,482-foot (452-meter) towers are so popular that just 1,700 passes are distributed each morning on a first-come, first-serve basis, and most are gone by 9am. Advance tickets are available, or visitors can avoid the long lines to view Kuala Lumpur’s dramatic cityscape from above by booking a tour that includes a skip-the-line ticket. Some tours focus on the towers, providing in-depth immersion in the history and architecture, while other city tours combine a quick stop at the towers with visits to additional Kuala Lumpur landmarks, such as the National Monument, Sultan Abdul Samad Building, National Museum, and KL Tower.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The towers are a must-see for architecture buffs.
  • Day-of tickets are limited and sold on a first-come, first-served basis, so consider booking ahead.
  • Choose an attraction ticket to the 86th-floor observation deck, or visit the towers as part of a guided Kuala Lumpur tour.
  • Cameras are allowed in the towers, but additional equipment such as tripods and selfie sticks are not permitted.
  • Visitors can leave their belongings at a bag check before entering the Petronas Towers.

How to Get to the Petronas Twin Towers
The easiest ways to reach the Petronas Twin Towers are by taxi or as part of an organized tour. By public transportation, take the LRT to the KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Centre) station and walk from there.

When to Get There
The towers are generally open Tuesday through Sunday from 9am to 9pm. If you want one of the limited number of day-of tickets, arrive at the Twin Towers first thing in the morning. The ticket office opens at 8:30am, 30 minutes before the first entrance, and tickets often sell out within hours. The Petronas Twin Towers are closed on Mondays and for a 90-minute period on Friday afternoons.

Interesting Facts About the Petronas Towers
The floor plan for the towers was designed with the Islamic eight-point star in mind, and the five sections of each skyscraper are meant to represent the five pillars of Islam. Climbing to the top of one tower would require scaling 2,170 steps, and each tower weighs more than 300,000 tons—that’s equivalent to 42,857 elephants.
