Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur
Bukit Bintang also known as golden triangle in kuala lumpur. The night life here are very laid back. Most people will be around here for a chinese food, dinner and coffee with listening to a life band which play at the side walk. of BB Plaza. There are a pub and bistro, restaurant and pub but the place are not as noisy as other club at Jalan P.Ramlee, Jalan Penang or Jalan Sultan Ismail. Most people will sit at the coffee house at the side walk of bukit bintang and have coffee after dinner, listening to the life band music, or watching a cartoonist with their drawing and such.
There's an underground tunnel connecting Planet Hollywood with Regent Hotel (the oposite of Bintang Walk).
This tunnel is not easily found because people would prefer dangerously cross the road to go to the other side anyway.
Why is it called LOVE TUNNEL ? Well, some friends told me that guys who take prostitutes back to their rooms in Regent Hotel would prefer to use this tunnel instead of crossing the road. Sort of, 'a blessing' for the 2 of them !
Located along Jalan Bukit Bintang shopping spread, this place has transformed over the last 5 years to be one of the busiest tourist/local hangout and shopping haven.

This picture is Nightclubs at Bukit Bintang area, exact loaction is at the Sun Complex. These are nightclubs for you to spend the night with the girls (many from China), don't ask me too details, I never been there yet, this is only a photo taken from outside. But I have been to nightclubs elsewhere many years ago, there are some basic requirements you need before you walk in, here are some tips for you; Dress yourself like a typical rich businessman, have enough cash in pocket or cards ( RM200-1000) for tipping the girls that come to sit with you, you pay them in cash around RM20 each, the more you pay, the more girls come to you. Basically you are sitting in a big room or at a big hall with all the sofas audio/video stuffs, many serving boys come to serve you drinks, foods, liquor, etc, they for sure also wait for your tips. You can sit and watch girls singing, singing mostly Chinese love songs. All the girls in nightclubs were identified by numbers, i.e. 118, 77, 64, 36 and so on, don't waste time to find out their real names. Customers only need to recognize numbers, recognize which numbers are your dream girls, so that you can talk 'philosophy' with them later. Entering this kind of nightclubs at least RM300-500 per night minimum, I am not expert in nightclubs but just learn to write nightlife tips for VT to promote the country's tourism industry, hope you like it. Also, these type of Chinese-Nightclubs are actually abundant in Kuala Lumpur, you can easily tell its a nightclub when you see so many colorful neon lights. You don't have to speak Chinese, you can speak English to them.
This place have a lots of chinese restaurant, for those who like to have multi chinese food, you can get here at bukit bingtang. For those who like Mediterranean food, you can get it along BB Plaza side walk, there are a few Mediterranean restaurent, and there is another big Mediterranean restaurant near to changkat raja chulan road.
Other than that, you can go to Petaling Street (China Town) to have a lots of choices of chinese food. To walk there from Bukit Bintang to China town it only take you about 20 to 30 mins walk, or you can take a taxi which take u there only less then 10mins, if there is no trafic.
Good place to hang out, have a few beers, listen to music and watch soccer matches in the bars that have big projection screens on what used to be a red light district but is now transformed to be a real cool stretch of road to party at (like Heritage Row).
Dress Code: Casual.
I love Bukit Bintang at night very live with lots of things to do, lots of restaurants, coffee shops, street painters and street performers.
If you are bored at night and have nothing to do just go for a stroll in Bukit Bintang it's very safe at night even for solo female traveler.

Bintang walk is supposed to bring the life back to the city and the city back to life. With so much entertainment and 5-star hotels this area will bring you back to life. A dozen night clubs and bars are scattered along the sidewalks which can be reached within walking distance.
If you like shopping, there is 6 humongous malls where you can take your picture such as Starhill, Lot 10, BB and Sungai Wang, KL Plaza, Debenham as well as the re-furbished Plaza Low Yat.
Bintang Walk is the place that defines 'lepak' culture and it's totally contagious. Almost every major nightlife event happens here such as the countdown, Merdeka eve celebration, as well as fashion shows, street concerts and parties.
From Puduraya Area, I walked to the Bukit Bintang areas.
Walking is better than taking a bus or a cab, as you could see the night scenes along the way.
Bukit Bintang is the lively area in KL. Partying could happen here although it's more the shopping/restaurant areas.
The photo was taken just outside LOT 10 Shopping Mall, where some good restautants are lined up each other.
These areas are more for the hig-end establishment, visited by people who think they have more money than you !
For me, just wander around the area would be good enough for me & you should do the same too, if you are not buying anything or going to eat at the restaurants in this area...
Behind LOT 10, there's a stretch of road leading to some cheap eating options & some fine discos...
One place that I noticed was this BINTANG GARDEN DISCOTEQUE; Loud techno music, hip patrons etc.
Looked like a gambling place, not sure...
Along Bintang Walk, we also could go into Planet Hollywood !
Sometimes we could Malaysian local artistes in there, sometimes we could have the chance to see some International artistes doing their performances in there...
There's also Ladies Night, the girls could enter for free; or Sexy Night, the girls wear skimpy dresses or Naked Night, everybody can go in naked !
I'm not sure about Naked Night but hang around Bintang Walk, you might know something that the locals don't !
Now, I am on the other side of Bintang Walk; Regent Hotel on my left side (The LOVE TUNNEL is directly out to the entrance of Regent Hotel).
Look on the other side, we could see the canopy covering the cafes underneath it.
Under the canopy, everything to eat & drink is similar to whatever you could get in Paris, Milan, New York, Sydney, London & all those ilk of places...
Expect to pay something similar as well !
See, the Planet Hollywood is just next to it...
