Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur

The Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is famous for the Petronas Towers, which are two huge sky scrapers; apparently the tallest twin buildings in the world. While these are well worth the visit, consider stopping by the Old Central Station, which is located near the National Mosque. It used to be the only station for city transit, although that changed when the KL Sentral was built. It is an architectural marvel, and the lack of bustling commuters gives it an air of tranquillity.
