Petronas Towers 1 & 2 are the tallest buildings in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. At one time, they were the tallest in the world. Tower 1 is the home of Malaysia’s Petronas National Oil. Petronas’ associated companies and multinationals lease office space in Tower 2.
Petronas Towers 1 & 2 are off limits to the general public except for two areas. The steel sky bridge on the 41st & 42nd floor is an open area. The second area is the underground Suria KLCC.
The sky bridge is an excellent observation deck. Great views of the city stretch below the visitor.
Access to the sky bridge is by ticket only. Eight hundred tickets are available every day except Monday. Inquire for a ticket at 9:15 A.M., in Menera(Tower) 2 for an afternoon or morning ticket.
Suria KLCC is a shopping complex beneath the Petronas Towers. Plus, the 864-seat Dewan Filharmonik Petronas is located there. It is the home of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra. Also, there are a Business Reference Library, Art Gallery, Book Store & Café and the Petronas Petrosains Centre.
