As the color red symbolizes luck, happiness, and joy, Thean Hou Temple is full of them! It’s the first place to consider for a CNY photo. Large and small red lanterns hang and connect the temples. Thean Hou Temple is a place of prayer and weddings, but it’s also great for taking OOTDs!

Location: 65, Persianan Endah, Taman Persianan Desa, 50460 KL

Opening Hours: 8:00am – 10:00pm

Every Lunar New Year, Dong Chan Shi Temple never fails to impress its visitors with beautiful lighting decorations. Rows of lanterns hanging beside the pathways and lush greenery and fresh air are just some of what the place offers. And since it is more spacious than the previous temple, there are more choices for your photo background. 

Location:PT 2297, Jalan Sungai Buaya, Kampung Jenjarom, 42600 Kuala Lumpur, Selangor

Opening Hours: 10:00am – 10:00pm

Yep, Petaling Street is on the list. Tho it should not be a surprise since Petaling is a pretty lively street even on normal days. It’s a shopping district, hence it is visited by the people every day. But during the festive season, more products are being sold, especially Chinese lanterns, foods, and traditional clothing for CNY. The busy crowd and old street is indeed a great photo background!

Location: Jalan Petaling, City Centre, 50000 KL

Open 24 hours

Just a 2-minute walk from Chinatown and you reach another remarkable spot, the Kwai Chai Hong, also known as Ghost Lane. It was officially opened to the public last year, and many visitors have come since then. With beautiful murals and ancient buildings now decorated with Chinese lanterns, travel back in time the 1960s golden era of KL Chinatown.

Location: Lorong Panggung, City Centre, 50000 KL

Open 24 Hours
