The biggest highlight of Malaysia are the Petronas Towers or Petronas twin towers. When you enter Malaysia the first thing you will see is the twin skyscrapers. They were ranked as the tallest building in the world from 1998 to 2004 after which their record broke. They tower high above you, among all the other skyscrapers and high rises making you seem small in comparison. All you can do is wonder and look towards the sky which is difficult to see in KL considering the amount of towers that block the view. They are located in Suria KLCC which is famous for its malls, housing outlets of all sorts of international brands, coffee shops and bakeries with an extensive food court area.
