Visiting KL during Chinese New Year

by travelingcebuano

Hi all, we are planning a trip to KL during Chinese New Year. I wanted to know if most tourist spots like Batu Caves, National Monument, etc, will be open during this time.

Would it be a good idea also to take a day trip to Malacca? Or the traffic would be just too much, since I heard so many locals will be taking off for a long weekend to places just like Malacca.

Would there be any tour operators/travel agencies open during this time to book the tours?

Hope you can suggest some itineraries for our KL vacation.

Thank you so much for your help!

Generally, Chinese New Year being a public holiday most non service industries will be closed. Batu Cave is open.

If you are planning on visiting Malacca on CNY itself, there should not be a problem with traffic - the jams will occur before CNY and after.

Tour operators/travel agencies main office will be closed but their offices at the airports may remain open.

In KL, visit the Petronas Twin Towers, Chinatown (Petaling Street), Central Market, Botanical Gardens, Dataran Merdeka (Independence Square), walk around Bukit Bintang, to name a few.

CNY is a public holiday in Malaysia. A small number of tourist spots will be closed. You have to check if the say they will closed on public holidays. Rarely does as that is when locals get time to visit too. More likely they will use a different opening hours than to close.

Since CNY for 2011 falls on thurs and friday. Traffic will be heavy heading outside of KL since EVERYONE regardless of race will be heading out from KL on Weds or Thursday itself. On the flipside, KL will be a ghost town. Most chinese owned shops will be closed (ie Chinatown area).

That said, going to Melaka on CNY eve is a real treat. Jonker Street is extremely lively before the CNY eve reunion dinner and chinese restaurants will be full. Temples will be filled right to midnight for prayers and celebrations. Fireworks (illegal and legal) will burst out the moment the clock strike midnight. On CNY day itself, nearly every shop will be closed as its a predominantly a Chinese populated/establishment area. Tourist spots are mostly open.

If you do want to go to Melaka, do it couple of days before CNY or return before the weekend is over. Or traffic will be too much. If you cannot find a tour company to bring you there, there is always a bus or two. At least you can sleep in the traffic if you are unlucky enough the caught in one :)

trip to malacca - i guess you will face slight unreasonable traffic there, malacca is always pack even during normal weekend. but yet it is because many people like you, it's worth a visit.

Melacca is definitely worth visiting. It takes about 2 hr driving to get there. Go early and come back late. As for traffic, usually it gets a little busy just before the actual CNY but I doubt that it would be busy on CNY.
Batu Caves is open during CNY. Not sure about the rest.

One of my favourite things to visit is the Batu caves. They are on the outskirts of KL. It is a Hindu temple in a cave, at the top of a long, long, long flight of stairs. It can be quite exhausting to get up there, especially in warm weather but it is worth the effort. Watch out for the Monkeys, they can be quite aggressive (also cute).

Vendors

by yen_2

There are also street vendors in KL but I never saw like one is Bangkok where I am now...I've seen this one near in Bukit Bentang's KFC. They sell etc's from wallet, watches and more. And they also have some costumers coming! You must also try to take part in around this area specialy during night time..alot of people walking around...

VT Meeting

by phil_uk_net

David (city_guy) is quite a character. Do get in touch with him if you are visiting KL. Not only is he a lot of fun but he is also attending classes to be an official KL tour guide and will be able to give you some useful information.

Humid and hot

by leanne_pearc

It is very hot and sticky in Kuala Lumpur.

Luckily the shopping centres and even some of the street vendors have icy cold aircon - the best aircon i have ever experienced.

Travelling must still go on and i recommend that you have a bottle of water with you at all times. You will be amazed at how fast you can go through that bottle.

The city does go on at night so stay inside during the hot hours and venture outside early morning and at night.

As it was my first time in kl we were out for most of the day, coming from australia it was bearable the weather.
