Petronas Towers

These towers rise nearly 1,500 feet above the ground.

A look up at the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur from the ground level

This obvious attraction is a fun place to spend an afternoon when it's just too hot or rainy outside. At 88 stories, they were the tallest towers from 1998 to 2004. The towers are based on the five pillars of Islam and feature two sets of double-decker lifts serving floors one to 23 and one to 37. Another group of five double-decker lifts take guests to the Sky Lobby.

To head straight to the top, hop aboard one of the executive lifts, which serves all 90 floors. These elevators can hold an average of 10 people and travel six miles per second. Once you reach the top, you'll marvel at one of the best views of KL possible.

Suria Mall, at the base of the towers, is one of the top shopping options in the city — you'll find more than 400 retailers here. Along with a food court selling excellent Malaysian and Indonesian fast food, there is plenty to keep you occupied while you wait your turn for the elevator.
