The nightlife scene in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, can’t be left off the travel and lifestyle list; it is the ideal place to celebrate New Year’s Eve. The vibrant scenes with diverse events are not left out to celebrate this moment. Here is a list of locations for you to choose from to welcome the New Year.
The best way to see the fireworks and the night skyline of Kuala Lumpur is to be on a rooftop. You relax, with no worries of being too crowded, get delicious food and beverages to savour, live music performances and even get a mesmerizing night view of Kuala Lumpur. Indulge yourself with various cuisines to try at Troika Sky Dining, such as Italian, French, Spanish and Greek cuisine. End your night by having drinks at the Skybar while watching the fireworks sparkle through the night.
Changkat Bukit Bintang
Changkat Bukit Bintang is filled with pubs, restaurants and nightclubs along Jalan Changkat. The street is filled up with lights and a vibrant atmosphere. Enjoy the flow of drinks and live music – house, hip-hop, trance and R&B – to usher in the New Year. Before getting into the nightlife, why not shop around Pavilion, which is just a short walking distance from Changkat Bukit Bintang. We suggest to take the monorail that takes you straight to Bukit Bintang – there’s one based in the city centre and another for those who live outside Kuala Lumpur.
Desa Park City
Want someplace quiet and tranquil with your close friends and family? Then, Desa Park City is the perfect place to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Not only is it one of the most relaxing residential parks, you can cycle along the bike paths, have your meals at the nearby restaurants and even take your pets with you. Bring your friends and family to watch the New Year fireworks display. We recommend having your dinner early before the peak hour; tables are filled up quickly. By having dinner early, you will be able to get a good spot to watch the fireworks at the park.
