All excited for the first weekend of May? We’ve got you covered with 3 interesting things to do in and about the vibrant city of KL this weekend!


1. URBANSCAPES is back with a city-wide experience for music and all things artsy. Kicking off this weekend at 2 Hang Kasturi, one can expect an immersive audiovisual-multimedia ecosystem, a photo project with KL’s diverse community of photographers, a flea-market offering stuff from vintage clothing to leather works and more. Head on over to their website to check out the scheduled lineups of acts.
