10 Cheap Date Ideas In KL You Can’t Stay Home For
Be it a first, or the twentieth date, a little fun never hurt anybody. While movies at the theatre, home-cooked meals, and binge-watching Netflix sound cute and romantic, at some point of time you or your other half are going to crave for something a little bit more adventurous. So, to help you keep that spark going, we have listed down some of the best date ideas you can do with your partner right here in KL.
Think you got what it takes to be the next Katniss Everdeen? Well then, try your hand at a game of archery at Stars Archery. If you have played before, perhaps this would be a wonderful place to show-off your skills just a teeny-weeny bit to your date. On the contrary, if you haven’t, fret not, you’re definitely going to have an amazing time, just try not to be crushed if your date beats you.
Price: From RM 16, per person
Address: 05-95C, 05-95D, Berjaya Times Square, No.1, Jalan Imbi, 55100 Kuala Lumpur
Break the Code
For those who love solving mysteries, then you should most definitely go to Break the Code for a date. Apart from boosting your adrenaline, this sure brings the two of you closer than ever, as you try to solve a mystery and escape before your time runs out. The best part of this is the fact that you can drag along your friends and their partners, and have a double or even triple date.
Price: From RM 34, per person
Address: Unit S225, One Utama Shopping Mall, Bandar Utama, 47800 Petaling Jaya, (Beside Isetan, Level 2)
If you’re not up for a game of archery, and instead would prefer something a bit subtler, then try out bowling. I’m sure we’ve all bowled before, and even if you haven’t, there’s no big deal, just laugh it out whenever your ball falls in the gutter. While almost all malls in KL come with a bowling centre, we personally prefer the one at Mid Valley, with its dim lights, and music, it definitely gives out romantic vibes.
If you have a fervent love towards food, then grab your partner and head on over to a mall or hawker stalls for a day out to devour some delicious delicacies. But here’s a tip, to avoid from spending way too much money–although we’re not complaining, its food after all- you can set a budget, and plan your journey.
Is your definition of a romantic date, belting out to songs in the car with your other half, while munching on some mouth-watering food? Then you should definitely take your partner out to a karaoke session for your next date. This is a rather wonderful idea as KL is filled with karaoke centres. Besides, couples that sing together, stay together! 😉 So no matter how silly you sound, make sure to dedicate a sappy love song to your other half!
Price: Currently unavailable
Address: Neway Karaoke, Lot EZ 502, 5th & 6th floor, 1 Utama Shopping Centre, No. 8, Dataran Bandar Utama, Bandar Utama, 47800, PJ
If you think movie dates and walks in the park are corny, then go all out on your date by bringing your other half to rock climbing. Situated in the famous 1 Utama, Camp5 is your one-stop to everything rock climbing. So get ready for an adrenaline-boosting date this weekend, while climbing up a wall, suspended 20 feet above the ground.
Note: Camp5 has multiple outlets
Price: Adult: RM 36, Junior: RM 25, Youth: RM 16
Address: ez501, 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya, 47800, Selangor, Darul Ehsan, Malaysia
Have a picnic
How about you go old school for a second, and instead of trying out all these crazy deeds, just cook a meal, grab your partner and go for a picnic at Perdana Botanical Gardens, in the heart of KL. If your partner is a goner for cheesy romantic stuff, then this is your best bet in impressing them further. In addition to that, what could possibly better than spending some quality time alone with your loved one, while snacking on some delish food?
Now here’s a fun date that involves relaxing, laughing and most probably falling ;). You don’t need to be a professional ice skater to slide around on the ice, so grab your lover and take him/her on a fun spin on the rink. We personally feel that this would especially be a good spot for a first date, considering how the laughter, and grabbing onto each other might be a good way to break the ice –no pun intended.
Note: There are various ice skating rinks around in KL, and the ticket prices vary for each.
Hit the Theatres
Instead of going for to the cinema almost every other date, how about you try something else this time, head on over to the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre, to catch a live show. If your bae is an art or musical junkie, then he/she is sure to love you a lot more after this. The centre offers an ever-changing list of shows, so remember to check them out online, and book your tickets early, you might be able to score some great early bird discount!
Be a tourist
Well here’s a wonderful way to spend some time with your beau and explore your country at the same time. From getting some really good deals on artistic items at the Sentral Market to enjoying some peace while taking a walk at the KLCC park, you are granted an endless list of things that you could do. The best part, you don’t even have to drive up here, just take a train, and you can save the environment and a couple of bucks for parking!
However, if you’re looking to spice up your date just a little bit more, then get your other half a gorgeous gift from ZALORA or even Lazada! Remember to shop through Shopback to score some amazing cashback!
