Whether you are looking to impress on your first date or celebrate the romantic holiday with your partner, there are many ways to make Valentine’s Day extra special for you and your loved one.
Being the capital of Malaysia, the bustling city of Kuala Lumpur offers travellers plenty of activities, especially during Valentine’s Day, from delightful dining restaurants to beautiful outdoor picnic venues for a truly memorable time.
So, if you are looking to celebrate the month of love, we have rounded up six dates ideas for you to treat your loved one to a romantic Valentine’s Day in Kuala Lumpur.
1. Have a delightful picnic at KLCC Park
Only a short walk from Suria KLCC (Petronas Twin Towers), KLCC Park is one of the city’s top tourist attractions that was designed to add a touch of greenery to the city. The park is home to various waterfalls, fountains and pools that provide a calming ambience amidst the bustling city. For those who enjoy the outdoors, why not set up a blanket for a delightful picnic and spend some quality time together, as you enjoy scenic views of the park as well as the Petronas Twin Towers.
If you happen to be around the area until the evening, we recommend making your way towards Suria KLCC’s man-made lake, Symphony, as there will be two types of water shows happening every night. As one show features only a performance using lights, we highly recommend catching the show with lights and music, as this show features over 150 uniquely programmed choreography that creates a truly magical performance. If you’d like to find out the schedule for these shows, our friendly concierge team are more than happy help you with any inquiries you may have!
2. Indulge in delectable high tea sets and buffets
