I intentionally scheduled my visit by the time the sun starts to disappear from the horizon, a moment when the tinge of the heaven alters—radiant, vivid, and vibrant. Yes, I already imagined that the sunset would be amazing at the top of Petronas Twin Towers. I wasn’t wrong!
I made the preparations in such a way that I won’t mess up the plan. Though I am always ready for any outright itinerary revisions, I just couldn’t afford to make the visit pass. Hence, I secured and pre-booked my slot online.

I couldn’t hide my excitement (which was pretty embarrassing) when I finally got the actual tickets to the skybridge and to the observation deck of the world’s tallest twin towers. Then I thought, why should I be ashamed of the blush if the rest of the group shows equally exuberant faces.
When the clock ticked to 6 o’clock, the 6:15PM batch were called to queue in front of the automatic turnstiles. It openned with a scan of the QR codes printed on our tickets.
We were given safety introductions and overview of the edifice using an advanced hologram presenter, which turned into an awesome animated lightshow during idle times.
We were introduced to our guides afterwards and were reminded to always follow the building regulations. We got no problem at all. Everybody behaved with utmost obedience.
When the elevator started to lift us up, the side walls turned into monitor panels that simulates the outside world. It showed a virtual reality of the surrounding structures, as if the elevator walls are transparent.
We stopped at level 41 which is approximately 170 meters above the ground. At that level, the cars on the streets appeared like toys and the surrounding edifices looked shorter.
The skybridge connects both the 41st and the 42nd levels of Petronas Twin Towers. It is supported with a three-hinged arch and a pair of 51-meter legs that extends to the 29th level of both towers.
We were given 10 minutes for the photoshoot.
By the way, the visitors’ batch were identified according the ID colors which were distributed during the orientation.
We took another elevator to reach the 86th floor, which according to our guide, is the highest accessible floor of Petronas. At such level, I couldn’t imagine that I was standing 370 meters above the city. The scenery was completely spectacular, and the feeling is something that I couldn’t put into words. I felt free. I felt alive. I felt awesome.
I managed to enjoy it, though I was alone.
The observation deck also features some stunning galleries and lightshows.
I couldn’t think of a fitting word to describe the beauty of the sunset. It was absolutely stunning.
The moment would be a lot noteworthy if you have someone beside you to share the moment with.
The tour lasted around 30-minutes, short but was completely worth it.
Since I still had the time to lurk around, I did not miss taking a photo of the photogenic, architectural wonder.
