Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Towers
I’m bit tired right now to do a full featured detailed post so I hope this photo essay of Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Twin Towers would do for now. The Petronas Towers used to be the tallest structure in the world until 2004. I guess this is also one of the most photographed structure in Malaysia. So capturing another angle of this tower would be somewhat a challenge. This is also one of those times I wish I had a wider angle lens with me.
The Twin Tower’s reflection down at the park
The immense scale of Petronas is impressive. You’ll only really gonna appreciate the detail of it’s Islamic design once you see it in person. And like I said, I wish I had a wide angle lens, but instead I have to back up further when taking pictures. Then I saw the tower’s reflection on this water when I was passing a bridge.
View of Kuala Lumpur by the Convention Center
There are many public establishments around the Tower. There’s Suriya Mall below the Tower if you want to cool down for a while. There’s also this neat park overlooking the towers where most people just hang out. But the park closes around 10pm.
In front of the Convention Center
Whenever I see this picture I remember this two guys who are amusingly taking pictures of each other here and they are taking forever. But I probably think they are having a hard time getting a clear picture or fitting everything on the small frame of their camera. But they have to watch out for incoming vehicles most of the time since they have to pose in the middle of the street just to fit in the picture. Hehe.
The night life strip at Jalan P Ramlee St.
I thought the street scene leading to the tower looks nice. I’m not sure if this is the right street I stated but the night life here is very much alive with numerous dining establishments, bars and discos.
That’s it for now. I’ll try to post something within the week. I hope you enjoy this one. 😀
