We purchased our tickets direct a few days before we wanted to go and would recommend tickets are pre-purchased. You are able to select the time you want if it's available. Tickets at the time were MYR 80.

We chose 7pm as we had seen the views during the day going up KL Tower.

If you are getting a taxi or a GRAB, allow yourself way more time than you think you need. We got stuck in a traffic jam and almost didn't make it. They won't wait for you, but in saying that, we actually had to wait in line for 15 minutes as they take up groups.

While there are many other buildings around the world which are taller than Petronis, it is still the tallest Twin Building and is the 10th tallest in the world.

We had about 30 minutes to stroll around by ourselves while at the top.

Definitely worth seeing KL during the day and the night.

At one stage it was raining and because of all of the lights from the building, it looked like it was snowing.

On departing, you are offered a photo and magnet of the picture that gets taken of you when you first arrive. They back drop the towers and they look fantastic but very expensive.

I first came to Kuala Lumpur in October 2019 in the midst of the country's Northeast Monsoon with the primary reason to see Petronas Twin Towers up close and to take several pictures of her. I stayed in the city for 3 days and 3 nights with a long list of tourist attractions to go to but my itinerary got all screwed up because of one thing that I failed to take note of --> their Northeast Monsoon! It was raining like crazy the whole time for 3 days and all my previous attempts to take an Instagram-worth picture of Petronas Twin Towers have failed (full story on my blog page). I went back home to my country with a heavy heart. But my low spirit motivated me to come back and plan more carefully. I booked another flight back to Kuala Lumpur two months after. December to February is the best season to visit Kuala Lumpur according to my Malaysian friend and I didn't go wrong this time. I revisited Petronas Twin Towers on the 5th of December and I was more certain that I will get positive results. The weather at 8:30 pm was at its best, with a 26°C temperature and clear skies, everything was destined to be a perfect day. I managed to take several shots which may not be perfect but I was happier than my first few attempts two months ago. Some locals can also be seen around selling gadgets, selling souvenir pictures, providing photography services, or offering an extended lens for taking better photos of the two towers using your own mobile phones. These focal lenses are being sold at RM35 but I heard many foreign visitors who are good at haggling and they get the deal for RM20 which includes taking the pictures for you.

Good view and is well kept. It is well managed with small groups to avoid crowding.

Soveniers were also not very expensive. Could buy the magnet for fridge of KL towers from there.

Washrooms were also clean and well maintained.

Tickets for the same day may finish and hence advisable to buy one day before hand for the next day. I don't think they are v strict with the time slots. Some time here and there would be ok.

We booked in advance through the Internet for our Petronas towers visit, which avoided the need for any queuing. In fact, as you enter the enormous shopping mall, you go to the right, then down an escalator to start the tour. It takes you straight up to the Sky bridge where you can take good photographs and then continues with another lift to the top of one of the towers. The view from the top is splendid and enables you to photograph not only the city below but also the other adjacent tower. We had hoped to take photographs at dusk as the lights came up over the city, but heavy rain and flood lighting really obscured the view. It is not worth staying for dusk because in reality you cannot see very much. There is a small gift shop at the top of the tower but no cafe facility. We visited in March and were thoroughly checked for Coronavirus temperature before being allowed into the tower. On the other side of the shopping mall is set of fountains which are magnificently coloured and play in time to music at 8:00 o'clock and 9:00 o'clock in the evenings. We enjoyed watching these while sitting in the Dome restaurant just to the right-hand side as you exit the towers which provided a good view and excellent food at reasonable prices.

Definitely an impressive sight as you see the twin towers in the KL city skyline. The first time I saw it many years ago there were not so many tall buildings around it - the skyline now has definitely become more crowded thus taking away from the standout factor of this building. Saying that this building is quite unique in its architecture. There is a large mall and a park which surrounds these two buildings. Easy to get to as there is a train station here.

The whole experience is so short which makes the whole experience uninteresting. in total it lasted just over 30 mins from start to finish half of the time your just waiting for the guide to take you through the elevator. You only go up the east tower but the views are great preferred the skybridge over the observatory. Buy tickets online as wait times when purchasing on site are over 30mins if your lucky but there's a good amount of seats at ever level to rest.

It wouldn't be a visit to Kuala Lumpur for our Canadian friends without taking them to see this iconic building that seems to be the heart of the city.

We had booked advance tickets on line. While waiting in line to board the elevator, coloured landyards will be given out to groups of 24 people (I think). Groups according to their coloured landyards will be directed throughout the journey from the ground floor to the 41st floor and upward to the observation deck on the 88th floor and back.

As we step off the elevator on the 41st floor we were given a brief oral outline/history of the Twin Towers and the Skybridge. Ater that we were given about 15 minutes to explore, experience and get views from the Skybridge.....and witness the earlier group in their designated colours getting herded to the 42nd floor to board the elevator for their skyward journey.

Views from the 88th floor Observation Deck was great but, unfortunately for us, Kuala Lumpur had been blanketed with haze and we fell short on amazing views!

Would love to do this visit again on a clear day!

The entire journey takes about an hour.

Tip:
- It is advisable to get advance tickets online. They sell off pretty fast.
- If you happen to loiter and shop at the gift store on the 86th floor be prepared to be stuck up there till you can squeeze in with another group as your group would have left when herded. Buy your gifts and souvenirs on the ground floor....lots more to choose from.

This is a business only building, so closes at 6PM every night. You MUST get a booked ticket, it is highly unlikely you could visit by just turning up. Try to book a morning / early afternoon visit, by 3.30-4 PM the smog is rolling across the city cutting the views you get, and there some great photo opportunities provided here. You will be escorted, via separate visitor lifts, (so you don’t interrupt businesses in building) to the sky level bridge, and top of a tower.

We booked in advance the skip the line tickets so we’re up first. It did feel like everyone was just getting hearded in. Photos are very expensive from there booth and felt there was a lot of standing about waiting for other people in the group.

We visited at a busy time, so booking ahead of time is recommended to avoid disappointment. When we got to KL we managed to book our tickets for 10 days later.
Not a cheap experience but definitely worth the money. Very organised and efficient, the visit allows plenty of time on the bridge and then takes you up to the viewing floor on one of the two towers.
The towers are an engineering masterpiece and to see the metal up close is quite an experience.
We did the sunset tour, so we got to see the city in daylight and then a beautiful sunset before the lights of the city came on.
If you're visiting KL for the first time, you must go up the towers. Strongly recommended.
