What's the Weather Like in Kuala Lumpur in October

Kuala Lumpur's grand markets, perfect weather and neat streets attract many millions of visitors each year, making this one of the world's most popular tourist destinations. October marks the end of the high tourist season and the start of the eastern monsoon season. Things start to calm down a bit in the capital of Malaysia, making it the ideal time of year for romantic getaways or some peace and quiet in this ultra-modern metropolis.

Sunshine Hours

In October, the sun shines for 7 hours each day, which is a one-hour decrease since September and the 5 months before that. Still, 7 hours of sunshine per day is not bad by any means, considering that this is the wet season in a tropical city.


It is the wet season, indeed. October is rather rainy with 22 days of rainfall expected on average and total precipitation reaching up to 280mm during this month. In fact, this is the second wettest month of the year, second only to November. It is good to keep in mind, however, that many other places at similar latitudes receive far more rainfall than Kuala Lumpur. This is due to the protective influence of the nearby Titiwangsa Mountains and the hilly island of SumatraIndonesia. Thunderstorms are what you can expect in terms of rainfallhey occur on no less than 85% of the 22 rainy days.


When it comes to temperatures, October is a month much like any other in Kuala Lumpur: it is hot. The nighttime average low temperature is a warm 23°C, while the afternoon average high temperature is a balmy 31°C. Both those temperatures stay perfectly constant throughout the whole monthnd pretty much throughout the entire year, for that matter. The average day temperature in October is 27°C.

Things to Do in Kuala Lumpur in October


Don't let the 280mm of rainfall in October deter you from heading outside and exploring the city, for it still is dry much of the day. One of Kuala Lumpur's greatest districts is Chinatown, located in the very heart of the city, it is easily the most colourful and bustling of them all. Boasting a wealth of cultural history and heritage, Chinatown is a must-visit area. It is a famous destination for shopaholics and bargain hunters, and foodies alike. In the evening, the area is at its liveliest, filled with street food stalls, open-air markets and thousands of people.


If you do need to stay inside, you can always improve your cooking skills by taking Malaysian cooking classes. A wide variety of classes are offered by a multitude of chefs and instructors. Consider attending a class at Lazat, where you will learn how to prepare a three-course Malaysian meal.
