There are lots of ways to enjoy the ?nightscape in Malaysia.

Here are the top 10 places to watch illuminations & light shows in Malaysia.
No, I did not spell wrongly. It is indeed Lapuland, not Lampuland. Every night you will see a long queue at AEON Mall Kota Bharu leading up to the 2nd floor. Those in the queue are mostly ?Instagram frenzy people who are trying to get some nice shots at the indoor light exhibition.
Once inside, it is totally a sensory experience with sandy and grass floors! On top of that, the colourful ?tulip light garden must not be missed! The entrance fee was RM10 for adults and RM5 for kids, but now it is down to RM5 for everybody!
P.s: It can be a bit stuffy here as there is no air-conditioning, so please wear comfortable and thinner clothing.

One of the biggest LED light fests in Malaysia is currently being held at Padang Astaka, Pasir Puteh, Kelantan. Some light attractions here include Light Sensation and Starlight Tunnel.

For those who don’t know, teamLab is an international art collective of people that encompasses all walks of life. This is the first time that they are bringing their arts into Malaysia. The rooftop exhibition comprises 2 themes, The Resonating Microcosms-Liquified Light Color, Sunrise & Sunset and Resonating Trees.
During the day, the ovoids look like huge mercury droplets from outer space. They are made in ?Japan, complete with motion sensors before being installed on the rooftop garden. According to the website, “under the sun, the ovoids reflect the world around them. As the sun sets, the ovoids begin to shine by themselves”. This exhibition makes us wonder about the co-relationship between ?natural environment changes and the presence of ?people. Head to LaLaport Bukit Bintang City Centre to witness 100 ovoids change into 57 Liquified Light Colours along with trees that resonate with the colour changing today!

There is no denying that Lalaport has lots of ?Instagrammable places, and the night view of the Grand Steps is one of them! Similar to the steps of Aeon Mall Kyoto in Japan, the Grand Steps are lined with colourful LED lights that form interesting images. The flight of steps with blinking LED lights and ?music are definitely going to keep children entertained. You can also take the steps all the way to the rooftop garden!

Another Instagram hub, the Saloma Link is a bridge that is popular among youngsters who are seeking interesting places for their social media content. This 69 metres structure is a bridge for ?♂️pedestrians and ?♂️bicyclists across the Klang River. The design of this bridge is inspired by the sireh junjung (betel nut leaf) arrangement.
At night, Saloma Link transforms into a colourful structure illuminated with brightly lit LED lights. Warning though, it can get extremely crowded on weekend nights, and there will be a long queue from the main road all the way to the parking space. Plus, the ?parking fee is not cheap either. To avoid that, you should take the KL City of Lights (Night Tour) bus. This bus tour takes you to tour around the Saloma Link and other night illumination spots & iconic places around the heart of KL! Pretty convenient I would say.

During the ?day, the Melaka River Cruise is an eye-opening tour around the historical buildings of Malacca. At ?night, this tour transforms into another spectacular experience altogether. What makes the night tour so special? To answer this, the boat takes you on a tour around the old pre-war shophouses with the colourful lights around the trees and bridges that turn the otherwise dark atmosphere, into a vibrant one.
Moreover, the boat goes at the right speed, so you can enjoy the sight without missing a single opportunity to ?take photos. Not only that, but the cooler air at night without the hot sun also makes the 30 mins night tour more enjoyable.

During the day at Aurora Park, you can see and interact with animals whereas, at night, you get to witness the mesmerising sight of colourful LED lights.

On top of that, animal-design installations are also plentiful.
Public facilities such as ?toilets and ?prayer rooms are available here. Besides that, there are benches placed all over the place for you to rest after a long walk. This place is a perfect hang-out spot for a family outing or even dating!

Upon stepping into the Secret Garden in Putrajaya, you will find yourself transported to the world of Pandora from the movie Avatar. The streaks of colour-changing LED lights hanging from the trees resemble bioluminescent plants from Pandora’s magical forest. This place is surreal at night and is very much ?instagrammable.
There are 2 entrances that lead to the secret garden. You just have to follow the sign that says Taman Putra Perdana. It can get very crowded during weekends and public holidays (I guess this secret garden is not so secret after ?). So it would be better to go on weekdays to avoid the crowds. This is a new attraction in Klang Valley that you do not want to miss!
⏰Hours: 7pm onwards
📍Address: Taman Putra Perdana, Presint 1, 62000 Putrajaya
