Kuala Lumpur comes to life after dark - it is a great city to explore when the buildings are all lit up and a simple wander through the streets is a beautiful experience. If you're after a lively evening, Bukit Bintang is the city's main entertainment district, with restaurants, shops and an indoor theme park. For a more cultural time you can pay a visit to the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple, which houses the Hindi deities, or pick up some great value souvenirs on the streets of Chinatown.
