Marvelous modern buildings reach the sky here, and while the skyline is not dense, this lack of density allows buildings to soar and “scrape the sky”. Kuala Lumpur has 10 structures standing over 200 m tall and is home to the tallest twin buildings in the world, the 452 m Petronas Towers as well as the peaking 420 m Menara Kuala Lumpur Tower. Along with Singapore and Bangkok, this city is part of the Southeast Asian economic triumvirate.
