World's Coolest Observation Decks
A new observation deck in Tower 2 of Kuala Lumpur’s iconic, ultramodern Petronas Towers provides the best view of this bustling city. It’s even better than the view from the Skybridge, which connects the twins at levels 41 and 42. The price of admission varies according to taste. Though no longer free, the basic Skybridge ticket is just $1; you’ll spend a few dollars more to reach the top. For $110 per person, the premium package includes a meal at the exclusive Malaysian Petroleum Club.
Observe This: The KL Tower’s observation deck is billed as being higher. That’s technically true, but only because KLT sits on a hill. If you have time for just one sky-high view, opt for Petronas. —Jeff Koyen
