Fodor's Review

Completed in 1996, the 88-story twin structure encased in steel and glass was inspired by former Prime Minister Tun Mahathir Mohamad. His vision was to create an internationally recognized landmark that would symbolize courage and the advancement of the nation. Skybridge, the double-decker structure connecting the two towers and also the world's highest two-story bridge, helps form the letter "M" for Malaysia. Take the elevator up to Skybridge and walk across on the 42nd level, and then zip up to the 86th floor and take in the expansive panorama. Tickets for Petronas Tower tours are limited and issued on a first-come, first-serve basis, so show up early—doors open at 8.30 am. There are also plenty of shopping and dining opportunities at the base of the towers, as well as the Kuala Lumpur City Centre Park, with playgrounds for the kids. Catch the towers from a distance at night for a brilliant light show.
