Kuala Lumpur is a dynamic place and is a nice size. It is quite developed and safe with wonderful parks. Indians, Chinese and Malays all inhabit this pleasurable city. This would be a fantastic city to hang out in if it wasn’t for the exoberant alcohol tax.

Malay girls are adorable

The Girls

Malaysian law is pretty strict on native Malay muslims drinking, as a result it is unlikely to encounter Malay girls at night. That said, plenty of Chinese and Indian girls do indulge. Malay girls have darker skin than other ethnic groups on the peninsula and many are extremely attractive and feminine. If you want to meet a nice Malay woman, your best bet is Borneo as East Malaysia is considerably more conservative. One positive about Kuala Lumpur is that English is widely understood due to the ethnic mix. Kuala Lumpur is also great place to meet some stunning Chinese girls, many of whom are independent and well-educated. KL is also home to many are Filipinas and Vietnamese women. While many work here legitimately, others come to the city to work as prostitutes.

Nightlife Recommendations

The nightlife in KL is slighty disappointing. This is part due to extremes.

There are 4 types of place to drink  in KL.

  • Chinese restaurants with cheap booze
  • Tourist Bars (the nearest happy medium)
  • High-end nightclubs with high-end prices
  • Sleazy Freelancer bars
Beach Club
Falling under the sleazy category. Packed full of Vietnamese hookers and horny old guys. That said, is has a shark aquarium, great live music and some normal girls (I got picked up here with no money involved)
Zouk & Velvet Underground
Well known disco with lots of dance areas and great DJs. Packed with hot Chinese girls. It can be a bit pricey and a bit pretentious but the quality here is grade A.
Bukit Bintang
A street with lots of bars and lots of options. A good mix of tourists and locals. This is a good medium between the options mentioned above. This is the place to go if your want some Europeans (or Reggae bar).

Getting High (courtesy of

Nomad’s  input: “you need to befriend a local”

Legislation: Very very strict, which means death penalty for traficking and for sure jail for any amount, even very small.

Law enforcement: Severe. You should only smoke in your hotel room. Police does usually not bother foreigner, but they will sure do if they suspect something. Another reporter added: “Police here are mostly corrupted. So a bribe could get you away.

Where to buy marijuana: In the golden triangle area, talk with the guys that try to hook you up with the prostitutes. Play the stupid (I’m not sure if you can get me what I want, bla, bla…) and you will eventually bring on the conversation on weed. Once the deal is set, walk or take a cab straight to your hotel, you don’t want to hang around with the weed. And don’t let the dealer know where you stay as he might then report to his policeman friend ! If you’re very very careful, everything should be fine.

Jalan Chow Kit is the main place for it. Locate the market, ask someone where is the lamb/mutton are sold, near there, you will find some fruits stalls, look out for guys making eye contact, just nod and walk towards a less crowded place, if he follows, you’re on, pay and get the hell outta there. ”

Marijuana prices: In this place mostly are sold in RM10 packs which hardly enough for a joint, negotiate and ask for better deals.
and also: “Never really measured but… 1 quarter of your palm filled with weed will mostly cost you more or less 30 ringgit, always bargain”

My KL Experience

I’ve been to KL 4 times.
I’ve walked across the entire city and feel I know it pretty well.
I got laid twice but it took a bit of luck (one from Beach bar and once from Zouk), I personally prefer beach bar. The food is to die for and some of the girls here are ‘make-you-want-to-stay-here’ gorgeous. I’d actually consider living here if the booze wasn’t so pricey.

    Great site Mark Patrick O’Naughty! Your SE Asia girl ranking chart is remarkably percipient for one so youthful. However I thoroughly dislike the Malays & Indonesians with their killjoy Islamic religion and fundamental hostility to ‘non-believers’. Couldn’t get back to Thailand fast enough after each boring visa run to Penang.

    Was hoping to meet some curvy cute little Malay ladies when I visited KL for a mongering trip, but the bars like Hardrock and beach club were full of hardcore looking hookers so had a cute chinese girl in one of the city spas

    I lived in KL for 3 years for work. Hated every minute. Starved for pussy the whole time. Everytime I went to Indo or Vietnam for a holiday I had hot chicks on tap. Malaysia is the worst place for chicks in Asia. Nice looking girls but wont have a bar of foreigners unless they are paying! (Actually most of the locals blokes are paying too)

  15. David July 13, 2013 at 5:04 am #

    Hi guys, I really want to warn you about chinatown, never go there for clubbing, so dangerous, many steals, rubbers, pick pocket and fighters are there, especially the reggae bar, firstly the bouncers are so rude and make you angry to fight with them, after that lots of people attack you and heat you cruelty and finally rub you.
    secondly there is a lots of fighters and rubbers are waiting for you outside. So if you don’t want to ruin yourself keep away from that area.

  16. REDA October 17, 2013 at 6:57 am #

    hey guys,

    i came back yesterday from KL and i do totally agree with the comments, that’s definitely not a place for singles travelers who want to get one night stand, i found the nightlife really disappointing if you compare it to Jakarta for example, i definitely do not recommend :
    Zouk which is full of local kids and the ratio man/woman is 10/1
    Beach Club which is full of dirty grand pas getting drunk and being abused by pimps .
    Skye Bar which is in traders Hotel is also disappointing, the one in Jakarta is 1000 times better, the set up looked cheap and the crowd is composed by groups of expats or tourists, full of dudes however the view is nice but after 5 mins it doesn’t matter anymore, and the ratio man/woman is 8/1
    Luna Bar, In pacific Hotel, it was dirty, in the sense which is dirty, also groups of expats and young locals partying alone, the dance floor in located on a elevated roof so no body dares to go on expect after a couple of bottles, it has also 2 cranes overlooking the place from 2 construction sites …. lovely the ratio man/woman is 10/1
    Rootz, nothing to say, really nothing to say except maybe the horrible smell like if they didn’t open the windows for decades …. the ratio man/woman is 10/1

    And finally the only 2 places i liked :
    Marinis on 57, pretentious and posh but its a really nice to feel that the 300 RM white wine that you just paid is worth it,
    Zeta Bar, in Hilton KL, the band is amazing, they are there only for 3 months, straight from the US. That’s the only place i recommend for clubbing and listening to a good sound, it has a mix of locals and expats and the most important, the crowd is over 35 years old, the ratio man/woman is 1/1

    So, in conclusion, for clubbing, bar hopping, getting laid ,,,etc if you are in KL, take the next flight to Jakarta.

    howdy doody galz and geezers, now its only 1 day off from that time of year again when the end and beginning come together on 1 huge night of fun festivity and frangers 😉 now to get all these things together you will require a state of mind that needs slight altering. therefore if ur a foreigner i invite yo ]u to add me on whatsapp or wechat as if i was you id be very cautious of any locals sellin u anythin. reason? the coppers pay them more moolah to snitch on u than what profit they would make from selling u that bag of green or rocks. im a foreigner as well people so i can provide you with a safe avenue to obtain sum wondersnuff called C9 and also some tabs. pricing on the C9 is rm500 for 1g but u need one point or 0.1g and adios for 6-12hrs. the tabs are 35rm ea and also buzz ya buttox for 4-8hrs. be good or be good at it ;-P

  18. Adi January 16, 2014 at 7:14 pm #

    Was in KL for a year and yep getting booty was a weekly affair. The spots you mention are good nontheless but there are way better ones to score some local chicas. Head to Changkat (not bukit bintang), havana and healy macs is where I usually scored, so much so had 4 of the chics already boned spot me while I was making out with another one (scary memory!). Chinese chics usually are a little conservative and dont come across that open though the malay and the indian ones can easily reach out tya once they are down enough booze!

    I had a night’s stay in KL about 2 years ago and I came THIS close to having a night’s stand as well.
    I’d stayed at the Crowne Plaza Hotel behind the KL Convention Center for the night (on my way to Thailand, actually) and in the basement of the hotel I accidentally found an Indian nightclub. Incidentally, it was Saturday night, so post 11:00-11:30 PM, the bar started filling up with some rich Indian expats and young students, who were all there to shake their booties to some Bollywood tunes. And let me tell you… the women were loose! More loose than the supposedly progressive/liberal Indian women in Dubai, where I live.
    I managed to hit it off with 3 different girls in that night, the first by simply chatting up at the bar’s door on my way in / the second one by making an approach with some totally silly question / the third by approaching her on the dance floor. It’s only that I could not stay on until very late. But I’m sure that the night got wilder in the later hours.
    I could be a little tough place for a non-Indian (especially a white guy), as they’d not be very familiar with the music and the moves, and such dudes are looked upon as dorks at an Indian club. And, like is the case at all Indian clubs, the music was just too annoyingly loud. I actually had to yell into the ears of all those 3 girls… THAT might have put them off perhaps 🙂
    But do give it a try the next time you’re in KL, if you wanna taste some Indian spice.

    Place to go these days if you want to pick up is Play Club, bit out of town in Petaling Jaya but packed with crazy gals. Soju in Bukit Bintang was also pretty good last time I was in KL in June 2015. Pretty much any nightclub on this list is worth a try

    Like most SEA countries its mostly prostitute. Most girls are about money (not so Philipines and Japanese). Its rather boring bec of its runned by Chinese. In hotels y may find hidden floors (health clubs). There you will be offered to 20 girls or so, from all over the places. Na i rather stay away from there.
