Standing tall below Petronas Towers, the World's tallest buildings until 2004

KL (as it is affectionately known by most everyone who has been here) is big, noisy, dirty, and smelly. But hey, this is Asia, what did you expect, right?

The KL Tower is the 4th tallest in the world. The public observation deck at 276 meters in height offers excellent panoramic views of the city.

The Petronas Towers, the world's tallest buildings until 2004, are simply breathtaking when standing beneath them.  Their sheer size and elegance is very impressive. Maybe I'm over reacting, but I am from Lisburn remember.

The city is home to various forms of wildlife you won't be accustomed to, from the ubiquitous rats and mosquitos to monkeys in the trees above your head.  I guess that's what happens when you build a city in the middle of a jungle.

Hi redeye.
When KL Tower (421 m) was completed in 1994, its already the fourth tallest tower in the world (not the first) behind CN Tower in Toronto (553m), Ostaninko Tower in Russia(540 m) and Oriental Pearl Tower(468 m) in Pudong, Shanghai. Only recently it was pushed to number 5 after the Borj-e Milad Tower(435m) opened in Tehran,Iran was completed.
Great photos of the Petronas Twin Towers by the way.
