Kuala Lumpur travel guide
Once the highest building in the world, it is now downgraded to the tallest twin towers. Built in 1998, the builindg rises almost a half kilometre (451.9 m) towards the sky. There are 88 floors, but the tallest observation deck for the public is disappointingly only on the bottom level of the double decked skybridge on the 41st and 42nd floors. The rest of the building is boring office spaces and off limits for tourists. The towers' design is based on Islamic architecture and Chinese numerology (8 is a lucky number... the 88 floors, octagonal plan, etc.) and is a fairly impressive sight, especially at night when the glass and steel structure is lit up.
