Why not book a driver and go see the fireflies.

Pickup in the afternoon.

Drive to the coastal town of Kuala Selangor, visit the lighthouse, see the monkeys.

Near sunset, head to the seafood restaurants by the river mouth, sit by the river and have rustic seafood dinner watching the sunset.

When its dark, head out to see the fireflies along the banks of the river.

If the row boat pier is open, then you can board a rowboat, and a boatman will row you out to the opposite bank, under the night sky, to view the fireflies. If the row boats are not operating, this will be done via electric boats.

The firefly population has dwindled somewhat compared to their heydays, but you have not been here before, so you cant compare so will have a good time nonetheless.

dear maic and sadin

thanks alot for your help

regarding the fireflies i'm not too keen for it as i would be 10 days in koh samui nature so i 'd rather chelax and enjoy the cosmopolitan life of KL

360 restaurant sounds great ,its only negative is they serve dinner from 9-11! no late dinners

if there is any other recommendations for romantic places INSIDE KL and places to listen to music and have a drink , i would be really grateful

Actually the dinner start as early as 6.30 for session 1 and 9.00pm for session 2. However you have to make prior booking.

Another option is Marini's on 57, Petronas Tower 3. As it name imply the restaurant is a roof top located on 57th Floor of Petronas Tower 3.

Take a Segway tour through the Lake Gardens. Just let her go shopping, my wife thinks shopping is romantic. Then buy her a gelati afterwards. Have fun.

LOL, gelati is known as ice cream!

Personally I would not have used a tour to see the sights, but hey! I prefer using public transport so we can experience the city.

You can get Gucci restaurants everywhere, you won't find the fancy places to dance in, so why not enjoy the romance of the city! Wander about, see the sights, smell the smells and experience Kuala Lumpur as Kuala Lumpur and not as a romantic capital (which it sadly is not)

There are NO fireflies in Samui - the ones in Selangor are one of the few places in the world you can see them. Koh Samui is more about beaches and chillaxing rather than nature . . . .

If you want a late dinner [and 11pm is pretty late for a dinner] than you need to head to the street (which I find more romantic) and enjoy the buzz there.

I'm not a he, and being married a long time we are not big on romance in our house, and our idea of a romantic day would be shopping, doing some sights, have a bite to eat and just being together [not something we do a lot of with busy lives], but if you want INSIDE KL and places to listen to music and have a drink, then why not have a room with a view and opt for room service? Otherwise if you want to Gucci restaurant with a view I would opt for Marini's on 57.

You can't get all you want, so you have to compromise!
