The double-decked Skybridge at the Petronas Twin Towers is one of its major draws as it offers amazing views of the city. Apart from allowing tenants of the towers to move from one building to the other without having to go to ground level, the Skybridge also functions as an emergency exit route.

Both rise to a height of 1,483 feet, which includes 242 feet for pinnacle and spire.Each building is supported by 16 large columns around its perimeter.
Set on Level 86 is Petronas Twin Towers' observation deck, where visitors can get a closeup view of the tower's spire as well as digital displays and exhibit of the tower's history.
