The Twin Towers Kuala Lumpur

The Twin Towers are spectacular pieces of architecture that should not be missed during any visit to Kuala Lumpur. Finished in 1998 these towers were at one stage the tallest buildings in the world at 452 meters each. Each tower has 88 floors and is designed in the form of an 8 sided star which is a symbol of fullness and regeneration in Islam. Currently ranked as the second tallest building in the world, Taipei 101 in Taiwan is currently the tallest building in the world at 509m and 101 stories.Interestingly, the structure of the Twin Towers is different to the sky scrapers of the rest of the world which are building with the extensive use of steel, the twin towers or Kuala Lumpur are concrete built.

The Skybridge joins the two towers at the 21st floor at just under 150m above ground. This is the only viewing deck on the Twin Towers and if you wish to get a ticket you must arrive early. Interestingly, when the Skybridge was being put in place by the builders, KL had a power outage that lasted 24 hours so the Skybridge was left hanging in the air by the cranes until the power was restored.

At the base of the Twin Towers is the Suria, KLCC shopping center. This shopping center caters for the more wealthy section of the Malaysian population and is a favorite of Arabs who often visit KL during August when their own countries become too hot. Here you will see shops such as Louis Vuitton, Channel, Ralf Lauren and all of the other major fashion houses.The Twin Towers are unavoidable sight in Kuala Lumpur as they dominate the skyline and really are a sight to behold. While constructed using only concrete, they have a metal finish which reflects both natural light and the spectacular night lights on the Twin Towers themselves.
