Looking up at Malaysia’s iconic Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur against a dusk sky. _ Standing at 452 m (1,483 ft) tall, this spectacular building was the tallest in the world from 1998 to 2004. _ KLCC Park located opposite this structure is one of my favorite inner city parks in the world. At night Symphony Lake comes to life with a coordinated light & fountain show. Beautiful! _ Did you know: During construction when the structure reached about the 72nd floor (out of 88), tower 2 ran into problems. They discovered the structure was leaning 25 millimetres (0.98 in) off from vertical. To correct the lean, the next 16 floors were slanted back 20 millimetres (0.79 in) with specialist surveyors hired to check verticality twice a day until the building’s completion. _ Travel tip: As we travel the world I use a mobile Internet hotspot from @tepwireless to stay connected. Very handy πŸ‘πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ
