Yup, I visited the Petronas Towers last year. Amazing!

Though there are taller buildings around such as the CN Tower in Toronto and any number of giant radio towers. They are not counted because they are not office blocks (basically).

Also, it depends on whether you count those spires and things on top. The nature of the Petronas Towers is such that they do count it, whereas they don't count it on some of the American buildings which may really be bigger. I think that if they put the Petronas Towers beside the Sears Building in Chicago the latter might actually look like the taller building.

All the same, the Petronas Towers are breathtaking. They feature in a movie whose name I'm trying to remember. Someone help me out......hang on....Entrapment.
