This is the tallest building in the world with a height of 452 meters. Watching the changing styles of the water fountain displays in front of the building, drinking a cup of Malaysia Coffee at a roadside cafes and viewing the tallest building just within a stone-throw distance is a "MUST" when touring around KL. 

The decoration of the interior roof of one of the connected buildings resembles the interior of a space ship. The architectural design and the surrounding buildings are one of the popular landmarks that one should not miss. (Strongly recommended by Ir. F. Fan)
