Travel in April to KL- weather forecast/haze query/advise

I intend to visit KL and genting in 2nd week of April with my family. Can some native give me a forecast of the weather that time. will the haze continue?

Do you think it will worth the efforts or should we postpone this to some other time of the year.

would appreciate honest feedback

Thanks on advance

No one can predict weather one month in advance.

However, April will be a hot and sunny time to visit. No haze.

Some fog in genting though.

This is the tropics. Some days it rains, some days it doesnt.

The haze is unusual this time of year. Normally its like june to september.

Hard to tell you when its a good or bad time to come. Maybe i will avoid june - september due to haze.

Hi Maic,

I read so much of the thefts and security issues in KL . Should we be calling our passports while going around KL. what precautions do you suggest?

Carry only a photocopy of passport.

Its safe, like any other big city - use basic common sense and precaution.

Do not use taxis, except prepaid ones from official taxi counters

Sunset in April is around 7:20pm. So aim to be there around 6:45pm or so.

Hi there,

Can't forecast the weather for April, but I can share with you the current weather and the weather for the past one month. We in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur/Selangor/Melaka/Johor/Klang) are hot and humid. average temperure of 35degree C in the day time. and it is very hazy. We hardly get rains here for past two months.

It is good for travel, as you will not get wet. But the haze irritating and unhealthy.

in the month of April, the sunset is approx at after 7:30pm. if you would like to see the evening sky on the Twin Tower, do take the tour for 7:30pm. i wouldl advice do not take tour earlier than 7pm, cause the entire tour time on the tower is approx 40min only.

you may visit to Genting Highlands any time you like. it is ok. but for your information, the outdoor theme park has closed for 3 years. now is under construction.

my advice is also the same, not advisible to take public taxi, as they do not use the meter and usually will over-charged you. do hire the coupon taxi from the airport and arrange for a private tour for your entire journey.

you may just carry your photocopy of passport with you and safe-locked your passport in the hotel (depends which hotel you staying). it is quite safe in the city, just have to beware of snatch thief or pickpockets.
