After visiting Batu Caves, we were hot and hungry! We took a teksi back into town and went to visit the Petronas Towers, the famous buildings that make up the iconic skyline of Kuala Lumpur. At one point these were the tallest towers in the world, but since 2004, they are now only the tallest twin towers in the world. They each contain 88 floors. The KLCC mall is located at the base of these towers.
Trent and I decided only to take photos of the towers from the outside. There were packages to go up into the towers, but they were more expensive than we wanted to pay for. They sell two packages: one will take you up to the skybridge or the second will take you to the skybridge and also all the way up to level 86.
We decided to wander about in the mall for a little while, to get out of the sun and to find some food. We really wanted Starbucks and kept seeing people carrying it around, but had no luck finding it on our own. In the center of the mall we encountered many decorations celebrating Chinese New Year. We snapped a photo here as well.
We finally made our way up to the food court, and after surveying the much-more-appetizing-than-malls-in- China options, we opted for Mexican food (no surprise there). Trent and I split a quesadilla, chips and a soda, knowing that we would be eating with Araceli and Jorge later that evening.
Then we wandered out the backside of the mall, finding a lovely fountain and beautiful view. Had we known better, we would have wandered around the park as well, but we didn’t know it was there. We also saw the towers from the back side.
Then we headed back to the Arismendi base to shower and get ready for an evening out!
