Yesterday morning (Sunday) we got up an went to the Petronas Twin Towers and got tickets to visit the Skybridge - the 41st Floor walkway between the towers.
For anyone who wants information on the process...
Tickets are free, but you have to wait in line to get them. They're given away daily, beginning at 8:30am.
We took the train to KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Center) and got to the line at 8:30. (You go to the center of the mall and down an escalator. The first people in line get tickets for the earliest time slots. We were in line for one hour and received tickets for 1:45pm. (We were asked to be there by 1:30pm.)
While waiting for the lift, you can look at information on the towers and watch a video in a waiting area. You're then given a pass and ushered into a small theater where you watch a short 3D movie about how great Petronas is. :)
You then go through security and get on an elevator to the 41st floor, where the skybridge is. A guide is with you to answer any questions. Here is our guide, Wan. He said he learns hello in a new language every day.
You get about 10 minutes to walk the skybridge and take photos.
Here is one view from the top...
And here I am at the top!
It was pretty neat being up there - I thought it was worth the hour wait in line. It's hard to know when you'll get tickets for, though, so tough to plan the rest of your day beforehand.
There are 88 floors.
The skybridge is 58.4 metres long.
Each tower weighs 300,000 tons. (Give or take?)
