You can get pictures at day time and also at night, with the lights. There is a show at 7:30 pm in the fountain with music and lights. We personally like the night scene with Twin Towers because of the show, and the beautiful lights surrounding the area.

Same as many Asian country Malaysia has 2 different season, these are the wet and dry season. Since I have visited Malaysia many times and different months of the year, I would tell you that there would be a chance of rain any time of the year. But the months of November to March is the wet season in Malaysia.

The dry season would be in the months of April to October. And I would suggest that the best time to visit Malaysia is the months of April to October because of the reason that all your itinerary will consist walking and exploring the beauty of this country.
