"Good, but a rather annoying ticket system"

Visited the Petronas Towers this year and to be honest i was very disappointed. I arrived there at around 11am after using the very efficient but rather expensive train system which takes you from the airport (although going up the towers is free). Upon arrival i discovered that no tickets were available for today. In fact the clerk told me that tickets sell out very fast everyday, especially weekends and holidays when malaysians often visit. Therefore is strongly reccommend anyone planning a visit to get there as early as possible (as you can't prebook tickets either). This mean that if you're just in transit like i was then you probably won't be able to make it in time as the journey from the airport takes upwards of 50 minutes and thats if you make all train connections perfectly.

However within the complex there wasa very good mall, which is good if you have some time to kill. It has a very well appointed food court too, which serves excellent and cheap malaysian style fast food.

From street level the towers seem impressive but are very hard to get a good view of, especially as they are so high. From further afield it is nearly impossible to see them completely as other surrounding buildings often block the view. However a good tip is to sit on the left hand side of the train on the way to the airport and at certain point you will have excellent views of the city including the towers.
