Tallest Twin - Petronas Twin Towers

  

It's our last day in Kuala Lumpur and we have a flight to Singapore late in the afternoon  Tired from the first 2 days of exploring KL Malaysia we woke up late.  We went down to take our breakfast, this time I'm already having an upset stomach from eating nasi lemak (Malaysian Coconut Milk Rice).  After breakfast we went up, packed our  things and checked out. 

We wanted to see Petronas Twin Towers first before heading to the KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) for our flight to Singapore. I checked the map and it seems like Petronas Twin Towers was just a short walk from Bukit Nanas Station via Jalan Ampang. We had to take a train from Bukit Bintang MRT Station which was just a short walk from the hotel.  Pulling our trolleys along we reach the station and bought our tickets for Bukit Bintang Station to Bukit Nanas Station.


The series of photos will show the view along Jalan Ampang







When we reach the intersection of Jalan Ampang and Jalan P Ramlee, we were just mesmerized by the sight then I said to my companions . . . . .  behold . . . .  the famous Petronas Twin Towers. We got excited and walked faster towards it. Sadly we arrived too late and was not able to buy tickets so we can go up the Skybridge and Observation Deck. They sell limited numbers of tickets for the day maybe because they don't want to overcrowd the place. I've read that some tourist queued as early as 5:00 am just to be able to get tickets =)

  6. I also had the same experience as you, arriving too late to get tickets for the viewing deck so I also missed seeing the view deck of Petronas.

  7. KL, Malaysia. Petronas Towers. Must. Visit. Soon!!! Hopefully next year. Why is it that we take for granted those that are near (to) us? That question usually pertains to people, but also applicable to places.

  12. This is the most visited place of every Filipino tourist visiting KL. Whenever I became a tour guide of KL, I always emphasize that Petronas Towers is not the only place you can visit here in the city, visit other places first and save the best to the last. :)

    Btw: Ricky thanks for linking our Shoestring guide to KL on this entry. ^_^
