Kuala Lumpur by night, a must for every tourist

The Petronas Towers are impressive during the day but in the dark with the lights on, it is out of this world. We passed by so many evenings and every time we had to stop, look at the towers, walk next to the fountains, look up again when we progressed for the next hundred meters. From our hotel we had excellent views on the Petronas Towers and enjoyed a drink from the outdoor terrace.

In this district almost all the high rise buildings have light displays and fancy colors. Walking a few kilometers at night after dinner or visiting a bar is a must. You see so many interesting towers, super cars, houses and bridges. Don't worry about safety, you feel the friendliness in the streets and there is also discipline with the evening presence of a police force.

De Petronas Towers zijn indrukwekkend tijdens het daglicht maar 's avonds wordt het nog spectaculairder, gewoon niet van deze wereld. We kwamen hier zoveel avonden voorbij en steeds keken we naar boven, naar de torens, naar de fonteinen en enkele meters verder opnieuw. De drang hiervoor was zo groot. Van op het terras in ons hotel hadden we een uitstekend zicht op de Petronas Towers en genoten we soms van een avondmutsje. 

In deze wijk zijn heel veel hoge gebouwen met sierverlichting en gekke kleuren. Enkele kilometers gaan wandelen na het avondeten of het bezoeken van een bar is een must. Je ziet er veel interessante torens, super auto's, huizen en bruggen. Maak je geen zorgen over de veiligheid bij nacht, je voelt dat de omgeving vriendelijkheid en respect uitstraalt. Discipline is er ook met een avond politiemacht.
