How hot is it in Kuala Lumpur during April?

Expect heat in Kuala Lumpur during April. The temperature hits about 33℃ during the day, falling away to a balmy 25℃ at night. Of course, the high humidity will make it feel even hotter. The UV index will be high at this time of year, so protection against skin and eye damage is needed. Try to limit exposure between 10am and 4pm. Apply broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen every few hours, even if it's cloudy, or more frequently after sweating or swimming, and wear UV-blocking sunglasses too, and bear in mind that bright surfaces, such as sand and water increase UV exposure.

Does it rain in Kuala Lumpur during April?

On average, there will be 23 rainy days during the month, amounting to 28.3mm in total. That's much drier than we see in England during August, and therefore not something to be concerned about. Due to the high temperature and humidity, you might expect lots of thunderstorms, however they're actually fairly infrequent at this time of year. On average, April will see just 4 days that produce a storm.
