Kuala Lumpur is not only the capital city of Malaysia, this is also one of the best places to go when
travelling to the country. And this is the home for one of the tallest twin building in the world, the
Petronas Twin Towers. With this, a city tour at Kuala Lumpur will not be complete without a visit to
these two towers. Here some of the few things that you will learn from a KL city tour guide.
At 452 feet, the Petronas Tower has been the tallest building until 2004 Taipei’s 101 was built. While
most of the towers are used for business, the there is a shopping mall at the base of the tower for
tourists. Aside from the famous twin tower, the surroundings of the building also caters both local and
foreign visitors. With the KLCC Park that has been a friendly place for everyone who wants to jog, walk
around or just sit by a water fountain. The park is sure to make your Kuala Lumpur city tour a laidback
and healthy experience.
But for those who prefers relaxing through music, there is the Dewan Filharmonik Petronas concert hall,
which is one of the leading venues for classical music. This concert hall is just located between the two
towers, and has been known to be the host for the most respected musical talents in the world. But for
those who wants to go higher, the Petronas Twin Tower has an observation deck on the 86th level of the
tower, where visitors can view the history of the tower and can just view the city in a different
perspective, and for an even better view, visitors can always visit the double-decked Skybridge that is
not only a tourist spot, but also an emergency exit route and allows workers to move from one building
But that’s not the only tower that the city can offer, there is also the Mehara KL tower, although it
stands a bit lower than the Petronas tower at 421 meters, the viewing deck is at least 100 meters higher,
and perfect to watch during the night, where visitors can see the bright lights sparkle the whole city. But
aside the magnificent view, this tower boasts its Atmosphere 360, or commonly known as the revolving
restaurant, where the table of the visitor changes place, from the buffet table, to the grand piano, but
make no mistake, the rotation won’t make anyone dizzy, the rotation takes more than an hour to be
completed, and the area is just intimate but in the same time, trendy.
Visitors can just enjoy sipping a glass of wine, calm down with some music and enjoy the starry fiber
optic ceiling lights. The place usually have a lot of people, but it is never noisy, with the sky high view,
and romantic set-up, this place is just perfect for date nights. But in a restaurant, it all comes down to
the food, of course this place offers a buffet meal with three absolutely delicious stations, the appetizer
area, the main course section and the dessert bar , the meals changes every week, so costumers will not
be bored by the repeating menu. These two buildings is the solid proof that Kuala Lumpur should be one
of the top places to go in South East Asia.
