5 things you should know before you go up Petrona Twin Towers.
👉 the traffic in Kuala Lumpur is a little crazy. A taxi ride which is 5min’s may take 15-30min during peak hours. I suggest public transport like the subway.
👉 be aware of taxis waiting to pick up passengers, especially when there are a lot of people waiting but no one seems to want to take them. They may not run by the meter. The situation has improved now but still I suggest using the grab app if you can.
👉 there are allocated timings for going up the towers. Though queues are not as long as the Burj Khalifa, I still suggest that buying tickets online to minimized the waiting time. Tickets must be bought a day before entry.
👉 children below 3 years old are free.
👉 go to the nearby KLCC mall to walk around first if you need to wait for the entry time.
👉 my kids like the bridge a lot which is one part of going up the Petronas twin towers. Do you know that the bridge is ‘on wheels’ so when the towers sway, they don’t ‘crush’ the bridge.
👉 if you go up on the Petronas twin towers, you get a view of the KL towers and vice versa. Perhaps you can choose one instead of going to both. (For the budget conscious parents like us.)

(By the way, entry to the top of Petronas Towers used to be free. You just have to go to the reception to get the free tickets, usually for the next day tickets. I think people started selling them Or not turning up for them. There was even a guided tour then to explain the structure of the building to us. This has stopped too though. Wish they can bring the guided tour back.)
