Malaysia: KLCC Lake Symphony Water Fountain Show




Kuala Lumpur has recently been ranked as 9th most visited city in the world (as reported by CNN and according to a global market research firm, Euromonitor International). The photo used in the report is that of the city skyline with the focus on Petronas Twin Towers, the world’s tallest towers from 1998 to 2004. The towers, still the world’s tallest twin towers to date, have become the landmark to represent the city and the country ever since its completion, and rightly so. 


No visit to Kuala Lumpur would thus be complete without a visit to the twin towers, or KLCC (an acronym for Kuala Lumpur City Centre), as the area it is located in is known as. While a tour up one of the towers might cost some money, there are still some free things to do while one is in the area. One option would be to visit Galeri Petronas that is located on the 3rd floor of Suria KLCC. If one however doesn't feel so artistic, another option could be a stroll in KLCC Park, enjoying the green lung of the area that is now surrounded by high rise buildings sporting a quite interesting mixture of architecture.

Another one would be to watch KLCC Lake Symphony musical water fountain show. Not many – Malaysians included - actually have heard about this musical water fountain show. While there are water fountain shows almost throughout the day, musical fountain shows only happen in the evening.

The following are some of the videos that I've managed to capture of the shows on a night out at KLCC:

1. Situasi by Bunkface





2. Contradanza by Vanessa-Mae




3. Desert Rose by Sting




4. Cindai by Siti Nurhaliza




5. Medley of Instrumental Malay Songs




There are of course many other shows with different songs & musical arrangements. Which one is your favourite? Mine is Situasi by Bunkface! :) Cindai by Siti Nurhaliza however proves to be quite popular based on the number of views.

Further information:

KLCC Lake Symphony schedule

Following a query at the Suria KLCC information desk and based on observation over a few days, it is noted that musical fountain shows start at 7 p.m. daily and play 2 songs/musical arrangements every half an hour until 10 p.m.

    1. Yes, they are the tallest twin towers in the world. The only claim that it can make (apart from the highest (double decker) bridge or something) after losing the title of tallest towers in the world a few years back :)

  6. Although I've never been to Kuala Lumpur, the Petronas Twin Towers have a special place in my heart because I love everything their architect, César Pelli, designs.

    1. Oh, yes, Ana! César Pelli's designs are really interesting. Great thing his design of the Twin Towers was chosen for this Petronas project for their HQ.

  7. I liked contradanza by Vanessa-Mae. These were fun to watch. I can't wait to go to Malaysia this year and see the Petronas towers and these fountains for myself!

    1. Yes! I like Contradanza too, Brenda. Somehow it reminds me of the Braveheart (and consequently my time in Scotland years ago, heh!). When exactly are you heading this way, by the way?

    1. Yup, it's similar to Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas and Dubai but much smaller in scale. Still interesting to watch though :)

  11. I am definitely going to put this on the list of things to see!! We have a 24 hour layover in Kuala Lumpur in April. I was hoping to see the Petronas Towers lite up at night, so we will swing by to see this as well :)
