The Petronas Twin Towers are located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. There were once the tallest buildings in the world. That title now belongs to the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai. However the Petronas Twin Towers still remains the tallest twin buildings in the entire world. The Kuala Lumpur city Centre Skybridge is suspended between these two enormous towers.

The bridge is located on the 41st and the 42nd floors however only the public can access it from the 41st floor since the 42nd floor is reserved for use by tenants of the Petronas Towers only. The KLCC Skybridge has a safety feature that allows it to retract into either of the towers in the case of high winds or in the case of an emergency evacuation from one building. Visitors can visit the landmark for free but must first obtain a ticket that is issued on a first-come first-serve basis. There are a limited number of tickets that are available during one day. Only 1700 hundred people per day are allowed to visit the landmark.
