Admission to the Petronas Towers has gone up to RM80.00, and there are still limited amount of tickets (roughly 1300-1600,) available per day to travel up to the Sky bridge and the top floor 86th
In order to get one of these tickets you will have to queue outside of the tower entrance early as 4-5am and by 7am they let you go down to the ticket counter on the basement level of the building. Please note the ticket counter will be open from 8:30am but it is advisable to turn up earlier than this as the queues have normally started building before the counter is actually open.
Once you have been given a ticket it will be for one time slots from 9am - 8pm
Andrew Nash is providing the service to get the tickets on behalf, i booked on his website and i got the confirmation email and the tickets was there when we arrived to the hotel and we left his payment with the reception counter as his mention on the confirmation email, i think its worth then being in the queue for hours, and there is a service charge in additional for Andrew Nash service, it is safe and make things easy as the we don't do any payment before getting the tickets and we manage to plan well to spend our time in Kuala Lumpur, Many recommended his service on the tripadvisor.com, there where i gave a try ....
Its worth experiencing the top floor 86th, Andrew Nash recommended the 6 and 7pm slot which is the sun set slot and it was really a beautiful view. Many thank's to Andrew Nash
for those who never get a change to go up to petronas tower, you may try on the KL TOWER, is kinda nice view there too, and don't mis the bird part, such a wonderfull experince there... you may get a good advice and guide from Andrew Nash
You really can't visit KL without doing the towers. Having read previous reviews here we planned ahead and visited the ticket counter on our first afternoon (no queues yah!) and purchased tickets for in advance thru http://klccvisitingticketyolasite.com which made the process very simple. We got the ticket earlier at the hotel doorstep before we arrived. Thanks NASH. The biggest dilemma was choosing between a night or day time visit (we opted for the day). You get about 20 mins on the bridge and 20 mins at the top for RM50. On-line booking would be a great addition. Interactive screens at the top "read" your ticket and display extra info and graphics. Lifts are a little squashy so be prepared to get up close and personal. buildings are very impressive to look at (from the ground) at night.
I thought it just went to the bridge, so when the 2nd half was to the top of one of the towers I was pleasantly surprised and thrilled to get that high. Awesome views at the other tower, at KL tower and the rest of the city.
Luckiy we booked the tickets thru http://klccvisitingticketyolasite.com/
Watch the ticket queue thing .... got there at 8:30, stood in line for 45-50 mins to realise that I was queuing for a ticket for a time slot later in the day. I clearly hadn't read up on it enough to understand the set-up. If I had my time again, I would get there at 8am sharp, or earlier, to get one of the 20 or 30 tickets for the 9am visit, or 9:15 visit, so that I only had to get to this address once. BUT, coming back for 5pm ticketted visit was okay as we came back early and chilled in the air cond' shopping mall underneath, bought some clothes in Gap and ate double choc Gelato. Fantastic relief from the KL heat before enjoying the one hour tour.
No visit to KL would be complete without experiencing the jewel in the city's crown -
THE PETRONAS TWIN TOWERS.
This architecturally outstanding building is probably KL's most visited tourist attraction and advance booking is required to enjoy the city views from its skybridge and observation decks. There is an entry charge. Although the skybridge is located in the mid section of the towers it is certainly a fun experience to walk between them and see KL spread out beneath you.
Tickets are issued on a "first come, first served basis" and can be obtained from the Ticket office on the Concourse level. Only a certain amount of tickets are allocated each hour as there are restrictions on the number of people allowed on the Skybridge at any given time. Time limits apply but there is plenty of time to admire the views and take photos.
TIP: If possible visit earlier in the day as tickets may not be available later in the afternoon.
NOTE: The Skybridge and observation decks are closed on MONDAY and between 1pm and 2.30pm on FRIDAY for Prayer.
There is also an upmarket shopping centre at the base of the complex: Suria KLCC.
No travel to Kuala Lumpur would be complete without visiting the Petronas Twin Towers. Visitors get the chance to go up to the Skybridge, one that connects Towers 1 and 2. The view above is magnificent, and being there is just amazing.
Entrance to the Skybridge used to be free, but now you have to pay RM 50. Pick the schedule closest to nightfall, as the twin towers are really fantastic once lit.
Once the towers are lit at night, well, they're just breath-taking. They make you smile. They make you feel as though you are witnessing something so grand, so beautiful, so elegant. No photos ever taken can give justice to the beauty of these buildings. I love love love them!
The Petronas Twin Towers is a tower complex in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. When the building was inaugurated in 1998 was the tallest building in the world. On 17 October 2003, the height surpassed by Taipei 101. The Petronas Twin Towers remain the highest towers in the world.
The two peaks reach a height of 452 meters. This is the Petronas Twin Towers complex is currently (2011) the fourth tallest building in the world  after Burj Dubai, Taipei 101 Shanghai World Financial Center and International Commerce Centre. The building has 88 floors. The top floor of the building is situated 375 meters and the roof is 378.6 meters high.
The shape of the towers is derived from traditional Islamic forms.
On our recent trip to KL we were most disappointed that we were unable to take the tour of the towers, probably due to our own fault. We walked by the Petronas Towers on Sunday evening and after asking the security guard we were informed that you must get there early in the morning to guarantee taking the tour as only 900 visitors are allowed each day. Monday morning we skipped breakfast and arrived there at 6.30 only to discover that there are no tours on Mondays, so next morning we arrived at 7 am, took our place in line, but unfortunately we realised that we wouldn't have the time as we were flying out that afternoon. The first few people go on the first tour and as the queue arrives at the ticket counter, the later you are , the later your tour will be. SO, if you are thinking of a tour, get there early to avoid disappointment.
starting 1st december 2011 Skybridge Petronas Twin Tower(KLCC) has been increse the prices to visit RM50 MYR (Skybridge and observation deck).
Tour duration 45 menit
No more package one or two.
Ticket system and procedures still remain
“first come first serve basis”
and you have to be there early in the morning and have to wait a long queue if you want to get the ticket.
otherwise you can hire the person to get your ticket
Petronas Twin Towers became the iconic symbol of Malaysia’s futuristic developments.
Petronas towers are the world’s tallest twin skyscrapers which were designed by Argentine architect Cesar Pelli and Filipino Malaysian Engineer Deejay Cerico.
The towers features the skybridge which is open to all visitors but on a first come, first serve basis and limited for 100 visitors only. So, it would be better if you come in before 8am since a lot of tourists are expected to have a great view in the skybridge.
The skybridge connects the 41st and 42nd floors of tower 1 and 2 to provide added support.
To some, the twin towers were being compared to 2 persons holding hands and never letting go.
When we got here, the facility's under renovation... gawd!
The Petronas Towers are now my most favourite giant buildings ever. I went there today. The tour was quality. It began with a safety video and the video was projected onto a mist so it looked all ethereal and futuristic. I put my hand in it. Cool. Then we all squashed onto the elevator and took it up to the bridge connecting the twin towers. We were given fifteen minutes to take photos. The views were brilliant (photos still came out great even though it was a grey and rainy day, so you can imagine how fab they would have been had it been a clear day). We went further up to the viewing deck. Views from here: also brilliant, and there was a bunch of other stuff to do and see up there as well. A bit like a little mini museum. Was totally sad when I was told we had to leave; the time was not enough.
Would definitely recommend this.
TIP: Get your tickets a day in advance to avoid disappointment ... tours run all day until about 5.30 but they are often booked out.
There is also a pretty cool shopping centre attached to the towers called 'SURIA'. I bought fancy shoes there today. I normally hate buying shoes for myself because my feet are weird, but at SURIA, I found the perfect pair almost straight away. Yay.
