It was for a long standing the tallest building on the face of earth and the principal landmark of Malaysia. Surpassed by the Taipei 101 in 2004, Petronas Twin Towers remains to be the tallest twin buildings in the world as at 2012, outshining the World Trade Centre. Planning of this started on the 1st of January 1992 and it was only after 1st of March 1993 that excavating started to take form. 500 truck loads per day were seen shifting earth for the 30 metres concrete filling that was to be the foundation of the tallest building in history. Followed by what is to date the largest and longest filling of concrete in Malaysian history, the Petronas Towers started to take shape and on 1st August 1999 was ceremoniously opened by the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
This $1.6b construction features 88 floors, with 78 elevators and a double decker skybridge that unites the twin towers. Needless to say the view from the top most floors is comparable to surveying the world from heavens and is most definitely a must visit while in Malaysia. Sanctuary at a Kuala Lumpur Hotel will prove to be a luxurious and relaxing experience. Step into the threshold of Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur and enter a world of comforts that will redefine the word ‘’vacation’’.
