Bukit Bintang in KL draws crowd looking for memorable evening
Bukit Bintang in the heart of Kuala Lumpur comes alive at night, glittering with a kaleidoscope of colours.
The streets are abuzz with activity as locals and tourists mingle, creating an electric atmosphere.
The main draw is the plethora of restaurants, street food operators and al fresco bars, catering to every palate.
A must-visit destination here is Jalan Alor, a 500m dining thoroughfare that exudes an old-world allure that starkly contrasts with the modernised landscape of Kuala Lumpur.
The lively shouts of street vendors advertising their food plus the enticing aroma of sizzling fried delights give this thoroughfare an eccentric, celebratory atmosphere.
Since July 1, the street has been closed to vehicular traffic from 6pm to 3am daily.
This has made it safer and more enjoyable for visitors taking in the tempting dining options after a busy day of retail therapy at the many shopping malls in the district.
Bukit Bintang also offers a diverse array of accommodation ranging from luxurious hotels and serviced apartments to more budget-friendly options like hostels.
