"Shop around and bargain hard!" Chinatown - Petaling Street Tip by paulwf

Chinatown - Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur: 105 reviews and 157 photos

I love shopping in Chinatown but you have to get a general idea of what a good price is. You can do this by watching other people bargain. I find for T shirts & polo shirts that prices around RM20 is about right and cheaper if you buy 2 or more. DVDs are around RM10. If they refuse to discount the price then walking away can quickly induce a price reduction. Its best to go to Chinatown after 6pm. This is when they close the street and when more shops open up.
