Petronas Twin Towers (KLCC) Visit 2018 - Skybridge (41st floor) & Observation Deck (86th floor)

       
I made my first visit to the KLCC skybridge 7 years ago. And just two days ago, I made my second visit to the Petronas Twin Towers again and this time we visited two different levels which are both the 41st floor (Skybridge) and the 86th floor which is the Observation Deck.

What made me wanting to visit the place again? I was actually watching one of CutiepieMarzia's videos on youtube about her fifth anniversary with her boyfriend Pewds and one of the tourist attractions that they have visited is the 86th floor of the KLCC towers. That sparked my interest. I have only been to the 41st floor of the towers but not the 86th floor of it so I was pretty curious to know what are the differences between standing on the Skybridge and the Observation Deck. Would the views from above look better than the views below it? I don't know. Guess we'll have to find it out!

We bought the tickets few days ago from the ticket counter itself instead of its website. Ticket prices may vary according to your nationality. For Malaysians with mykad, the ticket price is RM30 for adults and RM15 for both children and senior citizens. For foreigners, it is RM85 for adults, RM35 for children and RM45 for senior citizens. Do refer to their website for more information.

For foreigners, you can opt to purchase your tickets from the website itself without having to fear about the possibilities of the tickets being sold out on the day of your visit. As for Malaysians, I would suggest you to buy the tickets from the ticket counter itself to purchase it at the Mykad rate. Not forgetting to mention that the tickets are subjected to the availability of their time slots.


>> Btw, I have inserted a short video of our entire trip below at the bottom of this post, do check it out! The video has more details of our visit.



We checked in at 3pm and were given green colored tags to wear for group references. The color of tags given to you will differ according to which time group you are in.

This is the check in point. Reminder for Malaysians, do remember to bring your Mykad for verification purposes.

We waited for the lift and we were introduced to the 41st floor of the building - aka the skybridge. The given visit time here is around 10 minutes.

The entire visit is a guided visit (with briefings included), meaning the staffs will tell you what to do next and it comes with time limits.

The skybridge is 170 meters above ground that connects tower 1 to tower 2. Tower 1 consists mainly of offices. Tower 2 is open to visitors but for only 3 main floors : lvl 41, lvl 83 and lvl 86.

At the other end of the skybridge is the connection to tower 1.


After that, we were directed to the 83rd floor for a lift exchange to get to the 86th floor. 86th floor, here we come!

Here's what the 86th floor looked like. It is surrounded by huge glass walls.

There is a miniature replica of the KL city and its skyline.

The white block of thing is a huge binoculars that allows visitors to take a look at any places they want to. I got to peep at one of the balconies of a random condominium and thank god that there were nothing obscene to be viewed at. Haha ok.

The magnificent tower 1 of KLCC.

The view from above here is really remarkable. The buildings here appear far smaller than what we saw from the 41st floor. If I'm not mistaken, we are currently 400+ meters above ground.

I attempted to take a panorama view of the tower and it looks a bit odd here. 

IMG_6476
I tried taking a picture with the tower in the background but it wasn't great; the background was far too bright to be seen or the background looks just nice but my entire body was shadowed.

After 15-20 minutes had elapsed, we were directed to the 83rd floor again to take another lift down to the ground floor. Also, 83rd floor is a level that sells little souvenirs. 


Here's a short video for the entire trip,




How was the trip? It was indeed a fun and memorable experience. So after viewing this post, would you plan to visit the 86th floor of the KLCC towers?


Another interesting fact, the total amount of our parking fee on that day was RM33 for 7 hours! 😬



Hope you enjoyed the post!
I'll see you guys when I see you :p
