Scenic Sunday/sunday bridge: Kuala Lumpur

Caught the Kuala Lumpur train passes by overhead on the bridge. The train gives an illusion that the two towers are very close together. They are in fact very far away.  

The Skyline of KL. Sean Connery movie's "Entrapment" showed the Petronas Twin Tower.

Among the many striking settings in Entrapment, the most dramatic is the one chosen for the film’s climax: the Twin Towers in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur. Currently the highest building in the world, Twin Towers dominates the KL skyline: it stands 84 storeys high and was built at the astonishing rate of one floor every four days. Made of stainless steel clad in glass, the two gigantic towers are linked at the 41st floor by a skybridge.

Though the movie of Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones publicised KL, it was also full of controversy when it showed the poorer side.

To go up the KL tower, you have to pay. We have been there a few times. The water engineer likes it. Once, it had the World's highest McDonalds restaurant.

In the morning, you can get free guided tour of the Twin towers. You have to queue up earlier. We never bothered to.

It would be interesting to see the inside of the towers. They are very impressive, even from a distance.
