What to Do On a Rainy Day in Kuala Lumpur?


If this is your first time here, Malaysia has frequent rain showers that might affect your plans to do outdoor activities. Don’t worry though as there are plenty of things to do with a roof over your head during the downpours. Sharing with you some of the best activities to do to keep you warm and dry on rainy days in Kuala Lumpur.

Café hopping
The Kuala Lumpur cafe scene is popular among foodies and coffee lovers. Chill out in a cozy cafe when it is raining heavily outside. We recommend for a quick visit to Publika. There is plenty of nice cafe here. From Room 203, Pan & Temper, The Red Bean Bag and a lot more for you to try. Selection for breakfast, lunch & dinner. All in one place.
Shopping for souvenirs
Take time to enjoy some retail therapy, shop for souvenirs which you can take back home for yourselves, friends, and family. The shopping malls we recommend to browse through are Suria KLCC and Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. There is a full air conditioned walkway (takes about 30 minutes) in between these two shopping malls. My next recommendation for you to shop Central Market, a 10 minute walk away from Pasar Seni MRT and LRT station. There are plenty of local handicrafts for you to choose.
Visit art galleries and museums
Explore art, history, and architecture in Kuala Lumpur’s art galleries and museums. You will gain in-depth knowledge about Malaysia’s culture and heritage. Visit eye-opening exhibitions and amazing architecture at MAP @ Publika, Petronas Gallery, National Museum of Malaysia, Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia, and Zhongshan Building.
Get creative
Learn a new skill by creating your very own art pieces. This artworks will be your souvenirs to take home. Take part in batik painting, wood carving, weaving, and other handicrafts activities guided by local professionals at the National Craft Complex. The trip here is worth of your time.
Watch live music performances
Enjoy your rainy evenings by watching live music performances. Chill out with your friends while listening to local music and enjoying a drink. Listen to cool and funky jazz at No Black Tie. Belt out some classic rock music, contemporary EDM, and sentimental tunes at The Bee in Publika. If you happen to be in town at the right time, live performances are held at annual music & multicultural festivals and popular hotspots in Kuala Lumpur, join in the fun and dance the night away.
Hope this will help you to enjoy your holiday in KL.
