Looking for a little entertainment with friends and family over the weekend after a hectic week?
There are quite a number of places right here in Kuala Lumpur and also a bit out of town spots you could definitely look forward to. Here we would like to share some of them and we hope they’d be just the right thing you’re looking for!
1. Haunted House
If you’re looking for a place to experience something totally out of your daily norm, “Hauntu” at The Linc is definitely a place to help you out with that. The name Hauntu could be pronounced in two ways; haunt you, or hantu which means ghost in the Malay language. Either way, you now might have a clue on what this place is all about.
But interestingly enough, it isn’t like the typical ghost house we used to go to during our childhood fun-fair days. It is actually a ghost-themed-theatre that is played by real actors and we ourselves will be joining the very scenes, solving riddles and experiencing real life goosebumps.
2. Become a One-Day Pilot
Have you ever wanted to be a pilot as a kid, but sadly grew up not having the chance to pursue that dream? Well, you can now dry those tears as there’s a place that can provide you the opportunity to have a glimpse of the life of a pilot, just over the weekend! Experience take-offs and landings at Flight Experience, Kuala Lumpur.
This flight simulator would indeed be sufficient to let you imagine as if you’re being the pilot for real as there is also an actual experienced pilot next to you, guiding you through and communicating with you just like a copilot would do.
3. Nature Retreat
In case you are a laid-back chill kind of person, going to a waterfall spot could just be thing you’ve been waiting for. Merely the calming sound of flowing water and the sound of soft breeze passing through leaves would be perfect after a hectic week of the city-life. There are a few waterfall spots you could find around K.L. but the Commonwealth Forest Park Falls is indeed a must-go.
It’s slightly out of town but it’s close enough to take you away to a totally different kind of landscape. The beauty of nature there is so wonderful that it could actually be therapeutic to anyone that goes there.
4. Adult Art Class / Workshop
But if you’re looking for more of a productive kind of entertainment, art classes are very much well known for that. Art classes usually involve many kinds of art products, such as charcoal portrait workshop, watercolour painting, sketching, acrylic painting and many more. Nothing beats an entertainment that could actually do you some good sense of education too. Enjoy the act of art making but careful, you might be hooked.
5. Low on budget?
Lookout Point Taman Wangsa Ukay would be an option if you don’t expect to do anything at all but rather to enjoy a cup of tea accompanied by an amazing view. This place is where you should be heading. Check out a bird-view of the starry city lights of Kuala Lumpur. The panoramic scenery is something that a photo might not do justice of. Invite your friends for a quick hang out session and surprise them with this rare view that could actually make your night a simple yet special one.
