Where to watch the sunset in Kuala Lumpur


The Kuala Lumpur skyline is a beautiful one, pierced by towering skyscrapers and the iconic Petronas Towers. It’s best enjoyed at golden hour when you witness the city transform from day to night and catch the sunset in between. I spent my evenings chasing the sunset trying to find the best view and here’s what I found.


Pertains Towers, Kuala Lumpur

Skybar at Traders Hotel
Let’s start with the best, shall we? The view from this hotel bar will knock your socks off. It gives you a perfect, symmetrical view of the Petronas Towers which feel so close you could almost touch them. There’s also a swimming pool and fancy cocktail bar on the same level.

Heli Lounge Bar
A helipad by day and cocktail bar by night, this open-top bar is where all the cool kids come. The mellow evening cocktails quickly turn into a pumping party with a live DJ. The view over the KL Tower is beautiful, but the cocktails aren’t the best.

KL Tower
KL Tower is one of the better-known viewpoints in Kuala Lumpur. It offers a 360-degree view of the city and an impressive view over the Petronas Twin Towers. I would recommend getting there at golden hour and waiting until the sun has fully set to see the city lit up under the night's sky.

Fuego at Troika Sky Dining
Fuego is an awesome spot to spend an evening with friends or a partner. It’s cool, hip and romantic all at once. The cocktails are superior and the South American-inspired dishes are delicious. Their signature cocktail is the burnt lemon margarita which is seriously good.

Thirty8 Bar & Lounge
Located inside the prestigious Grand Hyatt hotel, you’ll find the celebrated Thirty8 restaurant and lounge which offers 360-degree views over the city. Grab a table overlooking the Petronas Towers for a particularly magical dinner setting.
