While Kuala Lumpur is a cosmopolitan metropolis, it does have some ideal places for couples to share a romantic getaway; here are some of the best.
Amidst the backdrop of the Petronas Twin Towers, KLCC Park offers an enchanting urban escape, easy to reach for couples staying at a hotel in Bukit Bintang. The park with its pathways, waterfalls and bridges is great for a romantic stroll, lovely picnic or to take in the views of the water show at its Lake Symphony.
Heli Lounge Bar
You can even take that special someone to catch a magical sunset on a helipad! Head to the Menara KH Building close to The Kuala Lumpur Journal Hotel; after 6:00pm, the helipad is set up with tables and chairs and becomes an ideal place to take in the vistas and enjoy drinks, while there’s a lounge downstairs too.
For a lunch or dinner date spot, check out Atmosphere 360, a revolving restaurant in the Kuala Lumpur Tower, 282 metres from the ground! As you can imagine, the views are stunning and this dining venue has its own charm with à la carte, buffet and cocktail options and ceiling lights featuring fibre optics.
Kampung Kuantan Firefly Park
For something unique, you and your partner can visit the Kampung Kuantan Firefly Park, about an hour’s drive from Kuala Lumpur; here, you can take a night-time boat tour along the Selangor River to witness the enchanting display of fireflies lighting up the environment which, is in fact, part of a mating ritual!
