Petronas Twin Towers were the tallest towers in the world from 1998 until 2004. Petronas is short for Petrolium Nasional Bernard, is an oil and gas company fully owned by the Government of Malaysia. I guess that explains where the money came from for such a magnificent building.
We have 15-20 minutes on the Observation Deck, looking out the windows at almost a 360 degree view, watching videos and looking at the displays. It’s a straight ride down the 86 floors in the elevator which lets us out in front of the gift shop (of course). I look at my watch, and yes, the tour is exactly 45 minutes as they had advertised.
