Malaysia has always been marketed as “Truly Asia“. It’s the entrance door for tourists that come to discover the beautiful Malaysia or are connecting flights to other countries in Asia. Kuala Lumpur as a mere concrete jungle. But once you set foot inside, you will find that the blessed forests and landscapes of Malaysia. Malaysia has been a destination of choice for many an avid traveler. Add to that the relatively cheaper cost of travel compared to many parts of the world.
PETRONAS TWIN TOWER
The Petronas Towers are the symbol of Malaysia. The beautiful PETRONAS Twin Towers was finally encased in steel and glass.
They have been featured in various movies. The views from the Observation Deck are pretty impressive giving you a clear view of Kuala Lumpur. One can also take a walk on the skybridge at the 41st and 42nd floors. Ascend even higher to level 86, where the story of Malaysia’s vision unfolds amid breathtaking views of Kuala Lumpur.
The build has 88 floors. The bridge is not connected to either of the towers though. This makes sense, because both towers move independent of each other, the bridge just ‘hangs’ between them.
A project of this scale would usually take eight years to complete. However, it only took 6 years to complete the twin towers.
What better way to view the iconic Petronas in daylight? After the sun sets! When the city lights up in shades of orange, yellow and red, she can bedazzle you! Oh yes, time your visit to catch the dazzling Fountain show additionally below. Petronas Twin Towers is the most impressive and coolest must-see thing in KL. The Petronas Twin Towers / KLCC are definitely a must for any visit to Kuala Lumpur.
The location is the tower is in the heart of the city and is in the prime location from which all the other places are nearby. Within the towers you’ll find the most diverse companies.
When time is less, it is better to do only one of the two towers so that you get more time to see other places. Dilemma people face is to choose which tower. So choose Twin Tower first and than Kl tower. Tours will last about an hour, leaving you 15 minutes at the observation deck on the 86th floor. There is a locker on the ground floor to leave your backpack before you take the lift and travel at a staggering 5-6 metres per second to the SkyBridge.
To avoid disappointment, be sure to book your tickets in advance, as the tickets sell out almost every day. Tickets can be booked online.
And most importantly, please note twin towers is open only from Tuesday to Sunday.

For people with kids, it is the best place for them to spend some time. On the bottom floor of the huge complex there is a shopping centre. Within KLCC there is amongst others a huge cinema and aquarium.
There can be no better way to escape the humdrum of daily life than going on a holiday. So, this time, when I got some leeway from my busy schedule, I decided to pack our bags and head off to George Town, a lovely coastal city in Malaysia.
Located just a few hours away from Kuala Lumpur, George Town is the capital of Penang, a north-western state of Malaysia. Named after King George III of England, the city is a popular tourist destination and is known for its pristine landscape, multicultural heritage and mouth-watering cuisine.
The inner city is also known for its rich street art. I out to explore this aspect of Georgetown’s streetscape. And it was a treat to say the least. The most innovative and paintings adorned the walls of the city. Several of these amazing murals were painted by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic. His “Kids on Bicycle” and ‘Boy on a Bike’ were most popular murals. What made them interesting was that while the human figures were painted, real vehicles were affixed at strategic positions to create the whole effect.
Though o spent very time in George Town, I carried back memories that would last a lifetime. With its colonial architecture, historical streets, lovely beaches and relaxed ambiance, this city certainly gives its visitors a lot to reminisce about.
Penang or Langkawi?
Do you need help choosing between Penang and Langkawi? Both islands are worth a visit; but sometimes there’s only enough time to visit one of the two islands in the Andaman Sea.
Dive at the Perhentian Islands
These islands are very hugely popular with snorkelers and divers as the reefs and crystalline waters surrounding them are host to a wide variety of coral, sea-turtles, small sharks, and reef-fish. They are getting more popular every year but are a beautiful respite from the party heavy and tourist packed island in Thailand. Very beautiful place to visit if you are around Malaysia.
Ride a trishaw
This is a unique form of transportation, found all over Melaka. These simple bike taxis are amped to the max with wild decorations — and some even play techno music. This is really a fun thing to do in Malaysia. The drivers are essentially in an unspoken contest, which makes for lots of colorful, creative taxis to look at.
