5. The Twin Towers
For years, until the Burj-al-Khalifa of Dubai overtook them, the Petronas Twin Towers at 88 stories were the tallest buildings in the world. Clad in shiny stainless steel, the towers are meant to signify the soaring ambitions of the country. While the towers are impressive to look at, you can’t hope for a great view – Kuala Lumpur’s pollution means that all you usually see is haze. The towers have lots of things for you to do, though. From food courts to jogging trails, and even a chance to hear the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra in action.
