Best Time to Visit Kuala Lumpur

Learn about the best time of year to visit Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in this Howcast travel video.


Kuala Lumpur’s weather doesn’t change much, no matter what time of year it is.

Average high temperatures are in the high 80s and low 90s, and average lows are in the mid-70s.

It’s also always humid and rainy, and if you really want to avoid the worst of the wet weather -- avoid the rains and flooding of monsoon season. Monsoon season lasts from late September to early May. But if you can stand some rain in exchange for cooler temperatures, monsoon season isn’t such a bad time to visit. After showers, there’s typically a dip in temperature.

From June through August, Kuala Lumpur sees the least rainfall, but humidity and heat remain high.

Weather aside, Kuala Lumpur isn’t an especially expensive city to visit, but holidays will usually mean higher prices, plus crowds.

When planning your trip, you may want to schedule according to holidays and festivals -- either to join in or avoid them altogether. Do your research and book ahead of time to be sure you’ll get the experience you want.

The best time to visit Kuala Lumpur depends on your personal preferences.
