Biking Kuala Lumpur after sunset

Biking Kuala Lumpur
after sunset

Authentic Kuala Lumpur exploration requires nothing more than a bike, a local expert and some wanderlust
to see the capital in a whole new light. Touring the city at night, enjoying a local dinner,
and see some sights will change your KL views completely.

WHY THIS TOUR?

All you actually need for satisfying your thirst for some Kuala Lumpur adventure is a bicycle, a guide that knows the short cuts, local communities and hidden spots like the back of his hand and half a day of your time when hitting the home of the Twin Towers. Having explored the ins and outs away from the shiny skyscraper and must-visit landmarks, we have teamed up with local expertise who happens to be passionate cyclists, too.

This has resulted in a tour option that simply confirms that the authentic side of the city’s interior still bears a few surprises. No car, no bus and no public transportation – it is you and your bike turning corners and venture into districts that thrive on staying true to cultural heritage. The emphasis lies on a leisurely bike ride with ample time to soak in the hues, smiles and back alleys of one of South East Asia’s most dynamic metropolitans.

TRAIL ITINERARY

Biking Kuala Lumpur after sunset

17:00 - 21:00

Your after-sunset exploration commences with a comfortable transfer from your Kuala Lumpur hotel to the central meeting point – Malaysia’s Tourism Centre, locally known as MaTiC. In order to avoid rush hour, guests may be ready for a fun time venturing through Kuala Lumpur at around 16:00 hrs to make it in time for a 17:00 hrs scheduled departure. The team at the meeting point welcome you at their working domain where they will adjust the well-maintained city bikes to your height for a comfortable ride. It is all smiles once you hit the saddle and make your way through the streets and alleys of one of Asia’s most diverse capitals. The 14-kilometre bike ride, guided by a local, English-speaking expert, passes local shop houses, landmarks of modern and authentic Malaysia and touches the essence of the sounds, smells and sights of astonishing Kuala Lumpur.

The slow pace of this tour makes it an ideal means that suits everyone with an interest to go deep into the authentic heart of the city. Taken well-chosen paths, the route covers both the centre as well the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur with over 8 different regions and more than 50 locally-acclaimed and internationally-renowned landmarks. All this as the street lights are turned on giving the capital a new persona. With ample sights passing by, time to stop at a few and allowing your trail leader explain the importance, characteristics and history of some of these sights are standard built in this evening program.

An evening touring in Malaysia is not complete with grasping a taste of Malaysia’s vastness of culinary delights. A local dinner at a carefully-chosen restaurant forms a perfect break after some serious city exploration on two wheels. As night falls, it is time to head back to the Malaysia Tourism Centre (MaTiC), where we return the bikes, thank the crew for showing you an amazing part of Kuala Lumpur at night and hop into an air-conditioned for your transfer back to your accommodation.
