Jom Visit Kuala Lumpur lah!

If you are ever unsure of what to do or where to visit in KLCC, you can either drop by at Aquaria and meet friendly sea creature or take a walk at the Skybridge, connecting Petronas Tower 1 to Tower 2 (the view is breathtaking, you won’t regret it). Whatever it is, you will not regret it.

#TravelTips 1 : Aside from the KLCC Skybridge and Aquaria (both located in the building), you can also visit the Petrosains which is located inside the Suria KLCC Mall itself as well as the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) at the Dewan Filharmonik Petronas.

#TravelTips 2 : There are also Petronas Gallery located inside the mall.

All you animal lovers and city dwellers, if you ran out of ideas on where to go (especially those with kids), head over to Aquaria KLCC and meet 5,000 different exhibits of aquatic and land-bound creatures. And my personal favourite will be the Lion Fish, Jelly Fish (love to see how they glide) and Puffer Fish (do you know I have eaten one before when I was in Japan). Best experience would be when I walk into the walkalator tunnel with shark and manta ray swimming across.

Some of the highlights in Aquaria are the Amazing Rocky Shore touch pool, Red-Bellied Piranha exhibition (this is the only place in Malaysia granted permission to see one), Rare Sand-Tiger Sharks, the 10 foot long gigantic Arapaima and the gentle Green Sea Turtle. That one activity might thrill our young friends (adults too perhaps) are the feeding of the sharks at Aquatheatre, Flying Rays at the Living Ocean among others.

#TravelTips 3 : Check out the feeding time upon arriving so that you can plan well.

#TravelTips 4 : Check out activities that they have so you can allocate your time accordingly.

In paying tribute to World Ocean Day, KLCC started an awareness campaign called Blue Ocean, Green Action striving to educate the young about the importance of wildlife, the environment and its relationship with people.

#TravelTips 5 : It is important to educate the young ones on our environment, get the Aquaria team to explain more.

“ As an internationally recognised landmark, the PETRONAS Twin Towers symbolise the courage, ingenuity, initiative, and determination, energy, confidence, optimism, advancement and zest of a nation. ”

Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad
Former Prime Minister of Malaysia (1981-2003)

Little did I know that the Petronas Twin Towers are depicted through its outline, which resembles the letter "M" for Malaysia. But what I did know is that Tower 1 was build by Hazama Corporation Japan where else Tower 2 by Samsung Engineering & Construction Korea, and that the Towers were completed in 1996. This iconic building is ranked the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 and remains the tallest twin towers in the world by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH).
