Petronas Twin Towers

The Visit
The Petronas Towers also known as the Petronas Twin Towers (Malay: Menara Petronas, or Menara Berkembar Petronas) are twin skyscrapers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

According to the CTBUH's official definition and ranking, they were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 until surpassed by Taipei 101, but remain the tallest twin buildings ever built.

The building is the landmark of Kuala Lumpur with nearby Kuala Lumpur Tower. [Wikipedia]

Note: Pictures were taken during a visit to the the towers in December 2011.

The panoramic view is simply breathtaking, if you are not scared of height
