  5. I visited the twin towers 3 days ago. You are only allowed to visit the sky bridge. Not the very top. Also your time on the sky bridge is limited to 10 minutes. So great views and enough time to take pictures.

    Getting tickets could be greatly improved by being able to book some of the allocation on line and then releasing the remaining tickets on the day.

    Each person who queues can get up to 5 tickets. The best way to get tickets is pay the concerige at your hotel a 20 local currency note to send a student to queue for you. Then meet the student at the towers.

    It is an amzing building. I prefer to see it all lit up at night.

  6. Tickets to visit the PETRONAS Twin Towers can be obtained starting 08:30am every morning. The tickets are limited and time slotted. You may also select your preferred date and time in advance subject to the availability of the tickets.
