26 Cool Things to Do in KL at Night 2024 | Night Activities in KL


Top 26 Cool Activities and Things to Do in KL at Night

I’m writing this post because I’ve heard some people say there aren’t many night activities or places to visit in KL. 

I had that thought too when I first traveled to KL. 

However, now, as an expat living in KL for more than 2 years, I must say I was wrong. There are many interesting places to visit in KL after dark, but not many tourists are aware of their existence. 

In this post, I will share with you a list of interesting things to do in KL at night and in the nearby areas (Many of these night activities are FREE or cheap). Read until the end to explore more places.

Taman Connaught night market

Taman Connaught is probably the longest and most bustling pasar malam (night market) I have ever visited. It’s so famous among locals that even though it’s only open on Wednesdays, there are loads of people flocking to this spot to hunt for some good food.

Along this narrow street, there are numerous stalls selling a wide variety of food options, such as bubble tea, grilled seafood, fresh fruits, cakes, soups, burgers, fried chicken, and more. 

Besides food, you can also find souvenirs and clothing items in this night market. I bought three cactus pots for only 10 RM.

A post shared by maiii_travelog (@maiii_travelog)

This is one of the best things to do in KL at night if you are a big fan of durian.

In Malaysia, during the durian season (May to October), you will find many durian stalls on the streets. From my observation, it seems to be a favorite place for locals to hang out with family and friends at night.

Speaking of durian, there are numerous types to choose from, such as D24, Udang Merah, XO, D1, D101, Musang King (the most expensive one), and more. Personally, I always go for D24 because it’s sweet and not too bitter.

Here are some recommended durian stalls:

  • Dking KLCC: Address: 160, Jalan Ampang, Kampung Baru, 50450 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
  • DurianBB Park: Address: 15, Jalan Kamuning, Imbi, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
  • SS2 Durian House Stall: Address: PT1967, Jalan SS 2/61, SS 2, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
  • Durian King TTDI: Address: 179, Jalan Wan Kadir, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, 60000 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur

Illumination and Light Display in KL at Night

4. Lake Symphony Fountain Show

Looking for interesting yet free things to do in KL at night? The Lake Symphony Fountain Show must be added to your list. 

It is a dancing fountain performance synchronized to music and accompanied by magnificent lighting effects. The show takes place in Simfoni Lake, a 10,000-square-foot man-made lake located right in front of the Petronas Towers and Suria Mall.

Every night, you will see crowds sitting around the lake, eagerly awaiting the show. If you don’t know what to do in KL at night, why not head to this awesome night attraction for free?

Another interesting (and free) night activity in KL is walking along the River of Life.

The River of Life (ROL) is a Klang River transformation project which is led by the Government of Malaysia. The purpose of this program is to change the appearance of the Klang River into a lively waterfront with high economic value and reduce water pollution in the river.

The best time to visit ROL is definitely in the evening from 9 pm to 10 pm. Every 15 minutes during this time, you will see a dancing symphony fountain, blue corridor, fog, and lighting effects. The whole area looks really fantastic.

I City themepark at night

Looking for a cool place to hang out at night near KL? I-City theme park is a great choice.

Although the I-City theme park is located 18 km away from KLCC, it’s a very enticing attraction that you should visit in Malaysia.

This theme park will truly astonish you with its vibrant LED displays, boasting the largest snow park in Malaysia, an expansive water park, a captivating Ferris wheel, and more. 

My favourite activity at I-City theme park is the SpaceWalk in City of Digital Light Zone A, where we take a ride through the air and pass by beautifully illuminated trees.

7. Thean Hou Temple

Thean Hou temple at night

Needless to say, Thean Hou Temple is one of the most gorgeous night attractions in KL.

Thean Hou (Mazu) is the ocean goddess who guards seafarers and is originally from Phuc Kien, China. Not only Malaysia, but Thean Hou temples can also be found in Singapore, Taiwan, and Vietnam because Chinese people have a strong belief in Thean Hou and erect temples to worship her everywhere they immigrate.

The Thean Hou Temple in Kuala Lumpur was established by the local Hainanese community in 1894. It is one of Southeast Asia’s largest and oldest temples. 

Along with worshipping Thean Hou, Shui Wei Sheng Niang (the Goddess of the waterfront) and Guan Yin (the Goddess of Mercy ) are also dedicated in the temple.

My detailed review of Thean Hou Temple: Read this post

99 Wonderland Park is a perfect option for animal lovers seeking a night activity in KL.

This is an open urban wildlife park where you can watch the musical dancing fountain performance (on selected days), play with more than 99 species of animals, take selfies with the gleaming Love Bridge, and paddle boats around the lake.

What I love most about this place is that they allow some animals to roam freely, such as ostriches, grey-crowned cranes, peacocks, and African spoonbills, so visitors can get up close and personal with them.

Fun Things to Do in KL at Night

11. Museum of Illusions

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by maiii_travelog (@maiii_travelog)

Adding to the list of night activities in KL is the Museum of Illusions—a mind-blowing museum located right in the heart of the Bukit Bintang district, very close to the Pavilion Mall.

It is not only a place to have fun but to learn about the functioning of our minds and train our brains.  There are more than 80 fascinating exhibits that will blow your mind and some interesting puzzles. Interestingly, some sections in the museum will make you feel dizzy such as Vortex Tunnel, Tilted Room, etc.

The museum is not so big but it might take up to 2-3 hours to discover all of it, especially if you want to solve all the puzzles in the museum. They look simple but are not that easy to solve.

  • Opening Hours: Every day, 10:00 – 22:00
  • Address: Level 1, Ansa Hotel Kuala Lumpur (Between Fahrenheit 88 and Lot 10 Mall), 101 Jln Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur

12. Fireflies and blue tears

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by maiii_travelog (@maiii_travelog)

These are interesting natural nighttime attractions in Kuala Selangor – a town in northwestern Selangor, Malaysia.

Blue tears are the result of bioluminescent microorganisms known as Dinoflagellates. Typically, these luminous phenomena are found along the coastline, but in Kuala Selangor, you have the unique opportunity to witness them in the estuary of the Selangor River. The best time to catch a glimpse of these blue tears in Kuala Selangor is during the initial three days of the lunar month. It is said that during this timeframe, the combination of dark skies and high tides enhances the visibility of the blue tears.

Additionally, in Kuala Selangor, you can also marvel at the spectacle of fireflies as they begin to illuminate the banks of the Selangor River once the sun sets. Thousands of these fireflies take to the air, creating a captivating display in the darkness.

For more details, you can read my post: KL to Kuala Selangor day trip

13. Changkat – Bukit Bintang

Changkat is a narrow and short street that is packed with bars and nightclubs. It’s one of the best places for nightlife in KL, where you can let your hair down, enjoy some alcohol, and music.

If you want to immerse yourself in the bustling atmosphere, choose a table outside for even more fun.

Pro tip: Traffic is always bad on this street at night, especially during the weekend. If you drive, be prepared for the parking, which is quite far. If you take Grab or a taxi, you might have to wait a long time for your driver. A helpful tip is to walk outside of this busy area to book a Grab.

  • Address: Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
  • Entrance ticket: free

14. Hop-on Hop-off bus – KL City of Lights tour

If you have only 2-3 days in KL and want to see as many places as possible in an economical way, the KL City Tour with the Hop-on Hop-off bus is what you might need. The double-decker bus tour lasts 2 hours and passes by 10 night attractions in KL, including the Petronas Twin Towers, KL Tower, Dataran Merdeka, National Palace, and more. 

Additionally, there is also an English-speaking tour guide who will introduce you to some brief history and information about the attractions. 

Another advantage of this tour is that this activity is perfectly suitable for kids and senior citizens because not much walking is required.

15. Dataran Mederka night view

KL-night-attraction-view-things-to-do-Merdeka-Dataran-night-view- things-to-do-in-kl-at-night-night-activities-night-attractions-in-kl
Merdeka Dataran night view

Independence Square (or Dataran Merdeka) is a significant historical attraction in Kuala Lumpur and a great place to visit in KL at night. This is where the first Prime Minister of Malaysia announced the independence of the country on 31st August 1957 after many years of being occupied by the British and the Japanese.

When visiting the square, you can also see the 95-meter flag pole, one of the tallest in the world, and mosaics showing portraits of Malaysia’s Prime Ministers. Besides, in the vicinity of Dataran Merdeka, there are many beautiful attractions such as Sultan Abdul Samad Building, Royal Selangor Club, St. Mary’s Church, Kuala Lumpur City Galery, etc.

I’ve visited Dataran Merdeka many times, but mostly during the daytime. I never knew about its lively nightlife until the day I wanted to take a night walk with my mom along the River of Life and passed by Dataran Merdeka. This square turned out to be more fun at night than I expected. 😀 

The vibe is so vibrant in the area when it gets dark during weekends. The Sultan Abdul Samad Building (opposite the square) is even more outstanding with the lighting. There are also many street vendors selling snacks, and toys, or offering toy cars for kids. Overall, it’s a great place to hang out in KL at night where you can have a night walk and take beautiful pictures of the architecture.

Unquestionably, taking pictures with the Petronas Twin Towers is a must-do thing to do in Kuala Lumpur at night.

With a height of 451.9 m (88 stories), it is known as the tallest twin towers in the world.  The towers were designed by an Argentinian architect, Cesar Pelli, with a postmodern architectural style. Interestingly, the two towers were erected by 2 different construction consortia, namely Hazama Corporation (from Japan) and Samsung C&T Corporation (from Korea).

The 360 Atmosphere Revolving Restaurant is located at Menara KL Tower, 282 meters above ground level. The unique feature of this restaurant is that it revolves around its axis, allowing you to enjoy a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of the KL city.

You can visit here for lunch, tea time, or dinner. My family booked the hi-tea experience at this restaurant for 88RM per person. Overall, the experience was quite satisfying. However, bear in mind that the food during the hi-tea session is just ordinary, including items like cakes, fruits, sausages, stir-fried noodles, etc.
