The highest double-decker skybridge in the world. Here are some tips to guide you.
The Petronas Twin Towers Skybridge stands at a height of 452 metres above ground and 170 metres from the street level. Functioning as a connection between two towers as well as an emergency route for the staffs, it has always been a favorite place for visitors all over the world. The tickets are sold out everyday just within a few hours after they open the counter due to limited tickets.
The Petronas Twin Towers Visit Operations is located at the Concourse Level of KLCC. The counter is open from 8.30am to 6.00pm everyday except Monday (for maintenance). The ticket used to be free but they started to charge admissions since October 2010 and added more options to the visitors including an observation deck on Level 86 (the highest level you can visit) and lunch/dinner at the Malaysian Petroleum Club on Level 41 or Level 42. You can choose between the 3 packages they offer;
Package 1: RM 10 (foreigner), RM 3 (Malaysian with Mykad) – skybridge only (daily basis)
Package 2: RM 40 (foreigner), RM 20 (Malaysian with MyKad) – skybridge & observation deck on Level 86 (advance purchase can be done 3 days before)
Package 3: RM 250 – RM 350 – skybridge, observation deck & lunch/dinner at Malaysian Petroleum Club on Level 41/Level 42 (booking 2 weeks before)
You can get there by train (Putra LRT), bus or a cab. The common scenario that you will see when you go to the counter in the morning is the looooong queue. Yes, there are lots of people queuing for the tickets everyday. So, I advice you to come early before 8.00am or make an advance purchase. The Petronas Twin Towers Visit Operations is the only way for you to go up to the skybridge/observation deck. The security is really strict, so there’s no other way unless you know someone who works in the towers. Even so, you still have to go through their scanning machine and get yourself a visitor pass.
I suggest you to choose Package 2, on 6.00pm or 6.15pm. If you are lucky and if the weather is nice, you can see the sunset! It’s a breathtaking moment. A wonderful scenery that one must see. Throughout the visit, you will be guided by their friendly skyguides and volunteers. Don’t forget to bring your lomo cameras to capture those moments! Lomo on!
