Lining up for the Petronas Skybridge

Getting to the Petronas Skybridge is one of our major goals in our Malaysia leg and I am happy that we were able to do it on our third day.

Petronas Skybridge is only open to public from Tuesday-Sunday. Some people say that they only give 1,000 tickets per day on a first come, first serve basis. They start to issue tickets at 8:30am. If you're racing up against 1,000+ other tourists trying to get to the Skybridge on the same day then you'll have to be in line very early. But you can always buy tickets for the next day if you're staying in KL longer.

It was a Saturday so we expect a volume of tourists but being the late risers that we are, we could not promise to be there early.

 We arrived there around 8:30am and went straight to the concourse level where the ticket counter is located.

As expected, there was a already a queue but not as long as I imagined. There were about 60 people on the line.

A guard approached us and asked how many are we in the group and handed us an order slip.

 This monitor showed the visiting times and the number of available slots as of 8:36 am. That day, visiting hours start from 9am to 7pm. I'm not sure though how many people they allowed per time slot. But i'm guessing those sold slots were taken by those who were there as early as 6am. Hehe.

Finally it was our turn. The only available slots were in the afternoon. Since we're doing the HOHO tour, we chose the 3:00 PM schedule so we can be sure we can get back in time.

We were only planning to purchase a RM10 ticket for the Skybridge. It turns out that they now only offer a package worth RM50 which is inclusive of the Skybridge and the Observation Deck. We had no choice so we bought our tickets.

Admission to the Skybridge used to be free a few years back. Then they started to charge RM10 and now RM50. I recently checked their website and they are now selling tickets online for RM80.


Notice the QR Code in the ticket. You can have it scanned from the available interactive screens to view some information about the Petronas. I just set my camera to B&W.

These screens on the left provide interactive games.

Played a trivia quiz on this one.
