Kuala Lumpur City Centre KLCC

The Many Faces of KLCC

KLCC, which stands for Kuala Lumpur City Center, is more that just the Petronas Twin Towers, at 88 stories it is the tallest building in the world.  It is part of a 100-acre development that includes a shopping center and a world-class park.  It is both figuratively and literally Malaysia largest tourist attraction”

One of the great advantages of KLCC is its accessibility.  To get there by public transport is a cinch.  Just jump on the LRT or Light Rail Transit, there are bus services and every taxi driver in KL knows how to get there.  If you’re driving you can’t miss it.  It’s the only 88 story building in town.  

Nestled between the Twin Towers is Suria KLCC one of Malaysia’s premier shopping destinations. If you want to shop then Suria KLCC is the place to go.  It has the best mix of shops in Malaysia.  From the large department stores like Isetan, Parkson Grand, Marks and Spencer (the only place in town to get Salt and Vinegar chips) to more than 270 smaller specialty stores.  Amongst the different shops are designer labels like Tiffany, Hugo Boss, Alfred Dunhill, Bally, and Mont Blanc.  To give the place some real flavor there are specialty outlet like, The Specialist Books Shop, Inner Secrets (lingerie), The Sox Shop, Swatch, to name just a few.  While on the concourse level check out all the interesting handicraft stalls.  On the 3rd floor is Tanjong Golden Village cinemas, which shows all the latest blockbusters. 

Petronas Twin Towers KLCC
Nestled between the Twin Towers is Suria KLCC one of Malaysia’s premier shopping destinations. 

While shopping in KLCC it’s a must to stop for a drink at one of the many restaurants/cafes that line the ground floor overlooking the lake.  Just sit back at Dome or Shrooms and watch as countless people stroll by.  As the sun goes down the mood changes becoming a little more sophisticated but still relaxed.  Often those having just enjoyed one of the many world-class performances at the Dewan Philharmonic frequent Chinos.

If shopping is not your thing, or if you want to find something for the kids to do then the park will have something of interest.  This 50-acre tropical park designed by the famous Brazilian landscape artist, the late Roberto Burle Marx.  The park boasts a two-acre children’s playground consisting of colorful child safe equipment that is placed under large shade trees.  There is also a wading pool for children to cool off in.  For those looking to exercise try the jogging track.  If this is all too much then just enjoy a stroll along the side of the jewel of the park the magnificent lake and fountains.  Back inside Suria there are a few galleries, the Petronas Art Gallery and the Petro-sains gallery which is always a hit with kids of all ages.

KLCC has some of the most diverse culinary on offer.  There is too many to name them all.  Some of the best are; starting from the top, On the 4th floor Chakri Palace serves up a host of Thai food.  Also on the same floor is Madam Kwan’s which serves up a mixture of Asian and Western food.  Their mushroom soup is the best in town.  An interesting place to try is the Rain Nuddle House.  The 4th has a lot to offer it worth just walking around and reading the menus that are placed outside each restaurant.  If your craving some good American food then the 3rd floor is the home to American Chillies, try to get the window seats, great view! If you’re in the mood for pizza then stop off at California Pizza Kitchen on the first floor.  While at the ground floor as mentioned above we recommend Dome, Chinos and Shrooms.

Whether it’s shopping, dinning, the Arts, coffee, nature or even exercise KLCC has it all set to an amazing back drop, the tallest building in the world. 

Kuala Lumpur City Centre
The sheer sizes of the PETRONAS Twin Towers KLCC is a thing of 
beauty in it self.  But even more beautiful is how 
it reflects the environment around it.
