STOPOVER; MALAYSIA, KUALA LUMPUR, PETRONAS TOWERS
This post may contain affiliate links
When we booked our trip in 2014, and were given a free stop over in Kuala Lumpur. I knew that we were going to visit the Petronas Towers. I didn’t know much about them, but booked our tickets anyway.
We walked from our hotel the Melia at Bukit Bintang to the shopping mall Pavilion at Jalan Bukit Bintang. This was a ten minute walk. We then walked through the walkways to the Kuala Lumpur City Centre Park.
I didn’t take any pictures of the park, as all we were looking for were the towers. This was another 20mins walk. We went into the building, now sure where we were heading and came across the F1 cars.
You have to go down to the concourse level to find the ticket office. I would suggest that you pre book your tickets online as it is so busy. We joined our line and I did like that they timed your entrance and time on each level. You can choose to opt for package one which is just a visit to the skybridge or go for package two to go to the skybridge and all the way to level 86. We had brought the package to visit both levels. The first level you go is the skybridge.
The skybridge connects the two towers on the 41st and 42nd floors. It is not attached to the main structure. The bridge is 170 m (558 ft) above the ground and 58 m (190 ft) long, weighing 750 tons. If you are going to higher levels, you have to change elevators here.
This is the centre city park that we have walked through
We had our time on the skybridge before we were asked to move out to the lift to the higher floor.
On this floor, you are at the top. This is a hub of information about the towers.
This is one of my favourite photos from the trip – it includes the Skytower, we had eaten there the night before.
I would recommend anyone going to Kuala Lumpur to visit this. All booking information can be found here
