Often overshadowed by Singapore and Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur is a world class city that often doesn’t get the international recognition that it deserves. Why do we say this? Well, for one, Kuala Lumpur still remains a cultural melting pot despite the rapid development going on throughout the city. If you look in any direction you will see multiple cranes pulling up heavy construction materials as top-notch condominiums and sleek new hotels are built. But as this continuous drive towards becoming a developed nation continues, the people in the city still carry on with their distinct cultural roots. When you get a chance to visit the city, it won’t take you long to notice locals wearing traditional attire to work on a daily basis. The cuisine in Kuala Lumpur is also delicious, affordable, and of course, traditionally spicy.
Bangkok might have a wilder nightlife and Singapore might be more tailored for the rich and famous, but Kuala Lumpur strikes a nice balance between the two. The Towers in Kuala Lumpur provide a good example of this. Even if you have visited some of the nicest buildings in the world, Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower (Menara KL) are sure to impress. It’s quite rare to find a city that has two grandiose landmarks such as these so close to one another (10-15 minute walk).
Here is a guide to help you capture the true architectural wonder of the Petronas Twin Towers and the KL Tower (Menara KL) in Kuala Lumpur through the use of some of our photos.
Taking Photos of the Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower from the Ground
When you finally arrive at the Petronas Twin Towers by car in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, you will notice a long rectangular fountain directly in front of the Towers. This is the key photo-taking spot for tourists visiting the city. It is very common for tourists to spend over an hour trying to get a perfect picture of the towers in the background. If you have a timer on your camera or and adjustable LCD screen it can make it easier to take photos with the upward shooting angle.
