The Petronas Towers are twin skyscrapers in Kuala Lumpur, an identifying feature of the city.I knew when i saw them from my hotel room that yes i was in Kuala Lumpar .At 451.9 meters high they were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 until surpassed by Taipei 101,, however they still remain the tallest twin building in the world.
The towers hold the upmarket retail center; Suria KLCC. It features mostly foreign luxury goods and high-street labels. Its attractions include an art gallery, a philharmonic theater, an underwater aquarium and also a Science center. Suria KLCC is one of the largest shopping malls in Malaysia.
Surrounding the towers is the beautiful KLCC park, spanning 17 acres.Housing jogging and walking paths, a fountain with incorporated light show, wading pools, and a children’s playground.Not to mention the strict security staff with their whistles enforcing the rules.
