What is the best way to book my tickets in advance?
You can buy your tickets online through the official website or through several ticketing agencies. Most hotels in KL will also be able to assist you in the purchase of your tickets.
Can I get tickets by just turning up without a booking?
Yes, the daily number of visitors is limited to 1500. Tickets are sold on a first come, first served basis. There are usually some tickets available each day at the ticket office.
How long before my scheduled time should I arrive?
You should plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled time. If you are just one or two minutes late you will miss your time slot, they are very strict on timing and will give any unfilled spaces to those waiting on standby.
What time are tickets on sale from?
The first tickets are at 9am and continue at 15 minute intervals throughout the day until 8.15pm. The ticket office opens at 8.30am so that is often the best time to get tickets.
What is the entry fee?
Adult tickets (aged 12 and over) cost 80 MYR, child tickets (3-12) cost 33 MYR and infants aged younger than 3 have free entry. I could find no mention on the website about concession tickets.
What is the best time of day to visit?
Early in the morning is usually a good time although it can sometimes be a little misty. During the heat of the day the glare of the sun can sometimes cause photographic problems. Possibly the best time is in the early evening just as the day is changing to night. The lights of the city at night make for an impressive sight.
When is the best time of year to visit Kuala Lumpur?
The best time of year is probably from March through to May, the temperature is not too hot and not too much rain. There is not generally a winter in Malaysia being positioned so close to the equator, the rainy season ends in early March and generally consists of an hour or two of heavy rain each day.

Must Know

If I am overcome with fear at the height can I leave the tour early
If at any time a visitor is fearful of the height of the tower they should alert one of the guides and measures will then be taken to bring that person back to ground level.
What is included on the tour
On going through the security check visitors take an elevator up to the sky bridge (the elevated walkway between the two towers) between levels 41 and 42. You are then taken higher to the 86th floor and the observation deck.
How long does a tour of the towers take
Throughout the tour you are ushered along in a group of around 30 people and each group is moved along in an organised almost military fashion. The entire tour takes around 30 minutes from start to finish. You are not permitted to loiter on the observation deck as it will be cleared ready for the next group a few minutes behind yours.
Are bags permitted on the tour
Small bags such as handbags are permitted although anything larger such as a backpack is not. There are storage lockers available in the area of the ticket office to store any larger items. Every visitor is subjected to a search before being allowed to join the tour. Security is taken very seriously at this location.
What are the Petronas Towers
Building 1 is entirely used by the government owned oil company, Petronas. The second building is used by both Malaysian companies and some multinationals. The lower levels of Petronas Towers include a concert hall, the home of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra. In addition to the concert hall there is also a business reference library.
Surrounding the towers is the beautifully landscaped KLCC Park. The park contains a jogging track, walking paths and a children’s wading pool. Other attractions at the towers include the Petronas Art Gallery, the KL Convention Centre and the Petrosains Science Centre. This interactive centre of discovery features exhibits relating to the petroleum industry dating from the age of the dinosaur through to the most modern innovations.
