Kuala Lumpur By Night Tour

After hotel pickup by comfortable coach, start your evening in Kuala Lumpur with a guided walk through colorful Chinatown. Explore rows of stalls at the night markets, each with its own specialty goods — including clothing, accessories, toys and perfumes — sold at bargain prices.

Marvel at the illuminated skyscrapers above as Malaysian night vendors sell their wares. Take part in the local life as you stroll the lanes and haggle for items with help from your guide.

Enjoy some Chinese delicacies before continuing to Saloma Restaurant. After taking your seat, savor a sumptuous buffet for dinner while watching a spectacular array of traditional Malaysian dances performed on stage during the show. Menus rotate weekly (see sample below), but always feature authentic Malaysian and international dishes including a selection of salads, soups, appetizers, main courses and desserts. (On occasion, the venue changes to Songket Restaurant.)

We did this tour NYE. The guide was on time and very nice/informative. We went to the Chinese markets before the show and it was great - our type of shopping - bargaining etc. Our guide did warn us before about the inflated prices and that we should start bargaining about 70% lower than what they asked plus they were all genuine rip offs :) We didn't find this stop long enough so we went back the next night and continued shopping. The dance and dinner was great - my husband finds traditional dancing a tad boring but because this dance was from all cultures and kept moving he found it entertaining. Dinner is buffet style and was extensive however if you can't eat curries/spicy food (like me) then your choices are limited. We really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it.

What a surprise this was. Dinner at the cultural centre was great and they had traditional dancers - if you wear shorts be prepared to wear a sarong (provided at the restaurant).

You are dropped off in China Town with upto an hour and a half to browse and shop. The guide advised us on the best method of bargaining. Afterwards we drove through areas of the city, got some good photos of the Petronas Towers and KL Tower all lit up. Then on to dinner at a Malay resturaunt with a show included. The dinner was buffet style. Our guide took us around and decribed each of the dishes and helpfully pointed out those with peanuts, as one of the group was allergic. We helped ourselves to a bit of everything and we on dessert when the band stopped playing and the dancers appeared. The dancing was not all Malay, as Malaysia has historical influences from India Burma and Thailand. At the end they ask some of the audience to participate in oneof the dances. Great fun. We were not sure the children would like this tour but they loved it and got up on stage for the dancing.
