Summoning all night-owls! Have a blast in KL...

KL Nightlife

Kuala Lumpur is the capital of Malaysia. But to some, Kuala Lumpur is also the nightlife capital of South East Asia. The bright lights, vibrant colours and lively people will almost certainly make you forget it is the night. Instead, you'll just want to explore, jouney out and party.

Petaling Street

Petaling Street is sometimes called ‘Chee Cheong Kai’, meaning ‘Starch Factory Street’ this makes reference to its past history as the centrepoint tapioca flour production. Today, Petaling Street has become a national staple, composed of a plethora vendors selling goods and foods.

For under RM10, you could buy a Rolex watch or a Louis Vuitton bag here in Petaling Street. Quite obviously, these are not originals, despite the rather ironic warning sign board that disallows the sale of imitation products. Although we do not ever encourage purchasing fraudulent products, we still hold the belief that Petaling Street is amazing.

The food, the ambience and the bustling nature of Petaling Street truly depicts an authentic Kuala Lumpur feel, summarised perfectly by one mere street. Be sure to try some delightful local cuisine. The food stalls and Petaling Street alike is typically open up till early dawn. So enjoying Petaling Street is an experience for even the latest of night-owls.

Looking for a night of fun, entertainment and liveliness? Look no further, Changkat, Bukit Bintang is well-regarded as the ‘it’ factor for holding some of the best party venues in the country. As the night emerges, the bars, pubs, clubs, posh cocktail lounges, and restaurants lighten up and turns into one of the busiest and lively places in all of the country.

If you are based around the Golden Triangle Area or had a shopping spree at Bukit Bintang, you can very easily access Changkat and avoid the immense traffic jam. So take our advice and avoid driving or taking a cab directly to Changkat during peak hours, starting from 9pm. Instead, you should stop off at Jalan Bukit Bintang, Jalan Raja Chulan, or Jalan Nagasari and walk to Changkat while you relish in the gorgeous city lights of Kuala Lumpur.
