Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur
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...
These are just a bunch of local plants, at the front of Regent Hotel.
Decorating lights are decorated around them & you can see the lights also on the tree trucks.
Typical of Kuala Lumpur, making it a city of lights !
that's why it's great going out in KL, so much lights !...very colourful also.
Do you think KL is wasting its energy sources ? Just to make something beautiful ? Just so that we could take night photos around KL...Any opinion ?
As I came out on Bintang Walk, the Twin Towers are looming, brightly lit in the distance ! Amazing sight it is too...
On my right side at this time is the STARHILL SHOPPING COMPLEX.
Another shopping mall attraction to people with more money to spend...
On the photo, we could also see some people who just got off from work, waiting for their buses & taxis to go home...
This is the entrance of Starhill Shopping Complex, loved by high-end people ! Swanky shops, selling designer-brands ! Well, these are confirmed originals & not fake as we could find in Chinatown.
The areas inside are pretty nice to see as well. Go in if you have the time to spare...
The area of Bukit Bintang, stretching from the RIGHT SIDE of the entrance of LOT 10 to Marriott Hotel is called Bintang Walk. Bintang in Malay means star, so many you will feel like a star if you walk on this stretch of lane ? I'm not sure. I never feel like one...
From the Bintang Garden Disco above, I came out to Bintang Walk.
KL at night is bustling with activity.the area around petronas and the main shopping arcades are busy till 9pm afetr which itstarts shutting down.the chinatown market too shuts down by 10pm.
but the innumerable multiplexes offer late night shows.we watched casino royale at times square 10th floor.the show got over by 2am and we came back safely to our shangri la hotel by 2.30am.
other night spots like hard rock cagfe bustle late into the night.
Dress Code: casual.we did not have any women members so obviously felt safe as it was an all guys gang.
If you are in the Bukit Bintang road (nearby Low Yat Plaza), please look for this person, he is an old artist that draw portrait on the spot, I did not ask the price but I saw he has a price tag written there. He is probably the only one that come out alone at night on street to make living this way.
Everynight, there will be live bands that perform on the street to entertain just about anyone who's walking the streets...
Shown in the picture is a pic of the drummer of a band who performs outside BB plaza. They play good retro music from the 70s-80s and occasionally they play a few great malay tunes...
When the shopping center closes around 9pm, the stairs to the shopping center becomes a free grand stand for all to get a drink and sit down just to watch the band..
Dress Code: Simple...anything goes
Great place to chill and play pool in the back right next to the main stage, if thats your thing. You can hang in a dark booth as well and not be bothered by anybody, if that is your thing. Although the bands are excellent and the drinks constantly flow so you may want to be proactive; you have plenty of room to move around here, you can relax and enjoy the space.
Had a blast thanks to Yuhaimi and Sophia, you guys are the best!
Go see the band "Faces" wherever they play in KL, they rocked ...oh and the lead singer- she is HOT!
This area is nice because of the brightly lit atmospheres surrounding LOT 10 Shopping Mall.
You could sit on the bench, walking from one end to another.
Just enjoy the atmosphere in this area.
Have a chat with somebody, maybe with a Chinese girl that you could see posing on my photo.
Now I shall walk towards the Twin Tower ! I took some sights, night scenes along the way...
The photo shows a club, don't know what it's called though.
Loud blasting Latin music could be heard...
This is over at Jalan Bukit Bintang. Besides being a shopping haven, it now has many cool and interesting places for dinner and drinks. So far, the only place with a proper dancefloor is PLANET HOLLYWOOD.

Bukit Bintang is undoubtedly the tourist precinct in KL. It's not all bad though, as instead of constant touts and rude behavior, there is instead an endless array of outdoor eateries - a hawker's delight. Every cuisine is possible, from an Iraqi hookah cafe/restaurant, to Thai and Mexican food stands. The hustlers and dealers are present too, pushing everything from hookers to heroin. I opt for neither this time around, but agree to a full body massage (nothing suss).
Dress Code: Anything you want, although some bars may be snooty about who they let in, shorts are almost always ok.
Located at the ground floor of Fahrenheit88 Bukit Bintang, Celsius is one of a kind Restaurant + Bar. The place is more for relaxing than anything else and since the bar area is open air, you can bet that it’s never going to get stuffy here. There’s a good selection of food, and a list of drinks to make the Germans wobble.
There’s the house special that we think is definitely worth a try: Crazy Sins, a combination of seven cocktails all poured at once. Don’t worry it comes in seven different glasses so you can pace yourself when you try it. While we wait for its official opening, the pole has already attracted our attention and why wouldn’t it? It’s the only one we know that has a built in shower for those dirty moments.
Tastebuds craving for good food in KL area? Try Celsius KL. Not kidding – food’s yummilicious and the service was top notch!
Last stop for the night, we went to try an Egyptian shisha (sheesha?) at Lecka Lecka on Bukit Bintang. A surprising experience, especially for a couple of non smokers but our guide was always finding us new experiences. It was also the first time I visited Lecka Lecka and didn’t eat their gelato. Technically it is still smoking but without the harshness associated with cigarettes. The herbal/fruit mixture is at the top of the pipe which is covered with foil. Then hot coals are placed on top of the foil. After a minute or two, we were able to draw on the pipe which takes the smoke through the water in the base and this is supposedly what removes all the bad things. I'm not going to pretend I understood it, I'm going to need to do a bit more research on exactly what I did do. I guess the real surprise was the lack of coughing I would have thought went with first time smoking and the strange ability to take deep breaths and exhale lots of smoke with ease. A little difficult at times to capture the flavour, possibly in part because of our choice of flavour and our inexperience. We were told taking it in with the mouthpiece on the side of the mouth and drawing the smoke across our tongue helped. We chose grape which was very mild and the intention was to go back at some point and try strawberry but unfortunately, we never had the opportunity.
