The Petronas Towers have become synonymous with the city of Kuala Lumpur and makes up one of the most instantly recognisable aspects of her skyline, well worth a visit when in the city.

Cesar Pelli, the legendary Argentinean architect, was responsible for the design of the tower. His usage of postmodernism in the distinct design of the towers made them the legendary icons they are today. His iconic works can be found all over the world, from Abu Dhabi to America.

Once the towers were built, they were the tallest building in the world for a respectable six years from 1998 till 2004, until Taipei 101 was built in China. Despite the loss of that title, the Petronas Towers are still the tallest twin-towers in the world.
Quite recently, in 2009, a famous French free-climber extraordinaire scaled the entire tower without any safety devices.

Situated at the base of Petronas Towers is the massive Suria KLCC retail centre with more than 140,000 m2 of space. This is definitely a place you should check out if you're visiting Kuala Lumpur through a travel specialist such as macktrip.com.
You can also discover some of the best holiday deals over here. It's a very high-end mall and generally focuses on branded luxury goods. There's also an art gallery, underwater aquarium and philharmonic theatre within the mall.

This is one of the most remarkable aspects of the Petronas Towers, and astonishingly... isn't attached to the main structure. Since the towers are known to sway several feet, the bridge has been designed to slide in and out.
The bridge is a double-decker and is connected to the 41st as well as the 42nd floor. It is the highest bridge in the world and is definitely a unique experience.
