Kuala Lumpur Culture – with Wired Destinations

Cultural Performances and Arts

In the last few years, traditional and cultural arts have gained their popularity once again in KL. Small traditional performances are seen almost everywhere in the city center and some are also available at theaters, Kuala Lumpur hotels and restaurants.

Malaysian Culture

Authentic Malaysian shows are difficult to find these days in KL. You can catch a glimpse of some cultures on National Day and Malaysia Fest parades, with a handful of stage performances in many Kuala Lumpur hotels and restaurants, and at Kuala Lumpur's Central Market.

For classical concerts, there is a group of professional dancers that perform regularly in the Dewan Filharmonik Petronas, also called the Petronas Philharmonic Hall. This is a concert hall built especially for classical music performances. The place is located between the Petronas Twin Towers and the KLCC. As one of Kuala Lumpur's major Kuala Lumpur sightseeing attractions, the Petronas Philharmonic Hall provides significant cultural shows for all visitors to experience.

Chinese Culture

Because of the wide range of ethnic groups living in Malaysia, numerous cultural and religious events are performed around the city and throughout the year. Traditional Chinese opera is staged in the suburbs during Buddhist or Taoist festivals. The Chinese New Year is the most famous ethic festival for the Chinese in KL. The date varies depending on the lunar calendar. Mostly it is celebrated in February, with Chinese food stalls and the famous lion dance seen along the streets of Chinatown as well as around Jalan Petaling. 


Indian Culture

Almost ten percent of people living in Malaysia are of Indian heritage. Classical Indian arts are still alive in this charming country, with traditional dance, vocal and instrumental performances held regularly in temples. In late January or early February, Hindus celebrate the Thaipusam at Batu Caves in Selangor. Tourists will be thrilled by the bizarre spectacle of Indian bearers who push skewers into their bodies to show their devotion. Apart from this, other forms of devotion are accepted, such as milk or honey offerings.

Contemporary Malaysian Arts

Kuala Lumpur is also Malaysia's main contemporary arts scene, with some productions in Penang. Contemporary dancers are well-trained and performed internationally. The TG Fine Art Gallery provides not only contemporary Malaysian Arts, but also some fine works from Asian, European and American artists. This place is contributed to the Malaysian way of life with its high quality exhibitions and lectures, and also acts as a fine place to discover and admire the charm of contemporary arts.

Although Malaysia's different cultural communities are still being maintained by their own ethnic group, they are known to open their doors to members of different cultures and tourists during their religious festivals.
