Petronas Twin Towers

This morning we woke up early to line up to check the Skybridge at the Petronas Twin Towers. We arrived at the start of the line at 7am as we heard there could be a few hour wait to get a time to check it out. Tickets were free but availability is on a first come first serve basis and only 1700 passes are given out daily.
We were lucky and were able to get a time to cross the skybridge at 11:30am; it was a really incredible experience as it is the highest 2 story bridge in the world crossing the 41st and 42nd floors of the twin towers, as visitors we crossed on the 41st floor as the 42nd floor crossing is only used by tenants!(1)
The three of us had to finish our coffees quickly before making our way onto the bridge as no food or drinks were allowed, our personal items were then scanned as a safety precaution. Prior to making our way to the skybridge we were shown a documentary in the waiting lounge about the towers, after that it only took us about 10 minutes to take a tour across the bridge. It was pretty cool though the view of Kuala Lumpur wasn't all that we had hoped it would be due to the way that the towers are situated, we did have a great view of the KLCC park though.
We then made our way down to the Suria KLCC the major shopping center that takes up the first 6 levels of the towers(2), we were overwhelmed by the amount of shops and things to do like the art gallery and science center, I was most excited to see my favorite store Tiffany and Co. had made it's way into this impressive shopping center!
There were many things theat we didn't have the time or energy to check out in the towers that can all be found at the Petronas Towers website http://www.petronas.com.my/internet/pett/pettweb.nsf/frm_home_hi?OpenFrameset
After an extremely long day we said "Selamat Tinggal" to the Petronas Twin Towers which means Goodbye in Malay, Malaysia's official language, and made our way back to our hotel!
