Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia



Night Scene
Kuala Lumpur has quite a vibrant night-life (but rather tame compared to Bangkok) and the Golden Triangle is the epicentre of most of the partying  in the city. A major spot in the Golden Triangle is Jalan P. Ramlee (just south of KLCC Suria Mall), which is Kuala Lumpur's central clubbing area. The scene also spills from Jalan P. Ramlee onto Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Ampang, Jalan Pinang and Jalan Perak. Another night spot in the Golden Triangle is Bukit Bintang, popular with both locals and tourists with its neon-lit nightclubs.

Heritage Row (on Jalan Doraisamy just off Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Dang Wangi), in the Tuanku Abdul Rahman district, is fast catching up as another popular nightspot. It occupies a row of refurbished colonial-era shop houses and now home to swanky clubs but strictly for the well-heeled patrons. Bangsar has long been one of the busiest places in Kuala Lumpur after the sun goes down. Other destinations include Sri Hartamas and Mont Kiara where you can find live performances in some of the outlets.

Late Night Eating
After a tiring night out, Malaysians like to head to "Mamak" roadside food stalls and coffee shops operated by Indian Muslims. These eateries offer a range of non-alcoholic beverages like teh tarik (frothed tea) and light food. In fact, these stalls have also become night hangouts in their own right and many outlets have installed wide-screen TV where they screen football matches. Most outlets are open 24 hours and found all over the city and very much part of the Malaysian night scene.
