The 88-storey Petronas Twin Towers was designed by Cesar Pelli and Associates is the Petronas Corporate Headquarters was completed in 1997.
The towers are joined at the 41st and 42nd floors (175m above street level) by a 192 ft-long (58.4 m) double-decker Sky Bridge. The 1,483 ft (451.9 m), was one of the world's tallest buildings in the world.
The sky bridge tour is nice as you can see some of the buildings from there but the best view of KL can be view from KL Tower. The 10 minutes tour takes you to the bridge and sees the view from the top.
Remember to get there early morning and line up for the pass for the bridge tour. I once waited from 7:30am to get the pass for some friends and we got our pass for 9am tour. Even if you are in line at 9am it also depends on the amount of tourist in-front of you sometime your tour can be for the afternoon. The tour is free so get there early to get your pass. The Sky Bridge is opened from 9:00am to 5:00pm from Tuesdays to Sunday and closed on Monday unless its a Public holiday.
Directions: Take the PUTRA LRT to KLCC station.

Inside the cave
Batu Caves is a famous tourist destination especially during Thaipusam festival. This event attracts many devotees and spectators who come to watch devotees in a trance carrying kavadi, a metal frame attached to the body. There are also milk kavadi.
