Best Time to Visit Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur enjoys a warm tropical climate throughout the year, but holidaymakers may want to avoid planning a vacation that coincides with the city’s 2 annual monsoon seasons. These take place from March to April, as well as between September to November. The drier months of June and July are therefore favoured by holidaymakers, though the temperature doesn’t fluctuate by much.
July is an especially great time to visit, as tourists can take advantage of the 1Malaysia Mega Sale and enjoy city-wide discounts on luxury goods, electronics and other consumer products. Furthermore, spillover from the festivities of Hari Raya Aidilfitri occurring in late June means lots of lively night bazaars - also known as ‘pasar malams’ - would still be in place.
