Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, friendly city

The iconic Petronas Towers.

Petronas Towers KL

Kuala Lumpur Malaysia friendly city and well worth adding to your travel bucket list. The amazing Petronas towers official definition and ranking indicated they were the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004 until surpassed by Taipei 101, but they remain the tallest twin building in the world. The buildings are the landmark of Kuala Lumpur with nearby Kuala Lumpur Tower.

I’m with friends from Australia Les & Robyn Scheffer, (No longer friends, I’m firmly on their black list) at a very good German restaurant, my apologies for not remembering the name of the place.

Since the 1990s, Kuala Lumpur has played host to many international sporting, political and cultural events including the 1998 Commonwealth Games and the Formula One Grand Prix. In addition, Kuala Lumpur is home to the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers, which have become an iconic symbol of Malaysia’s futuristic development.
