Coconuts KL

You will never know the real Kuala Lumpur at first glance. We’ve heard it all before. Shopping malls, more shopping malls, and dirty hawker food. There's no beach, and the sidewalks will end under your feet. We like it that way. You need to see what’s hidden behind the batik, and concrete. Only then will you see that our city shines bright: gleaming steel during the day, and neon lights by night. You will love KL if you get subtext, the absurd, and above all, the best food in Southeast Asia. No wait, the best food in the whole world. Walk down the street and see that East meets West, meets the Straits. We love plurality here. We thrive on it. It’s what makes the engine of our city run late into the night and into the next morning. Take a longer look, a different path and you’ll be rewarded. World-famous after-parties, where nobody sleeps until the last DJ is left standing. Food made by the recipe’s originator, cooked from decades-old woks, seasoned to perfection. Forests in the middle of the city, where you can have your lunch next to a family of macaques. And most importantly, some of the craziest news and most unbelievable headlines on planet Earth. KL is the coolest city you will ever meet, in the least assuming way possible. You just need the right guide, and that’s where we come in. The latest news, events and places to go in our beloved city, all here. See you soon.
