"The old lanes with traditional shop houses" Architecture Tip by tremendopunto

Architecture, Kuala Lumpur: 28 reviews and 41 photos

They are still there, the beautiful old lanes with the colourful old shophouses. Some get restored and turned into guesthouses or restaurants - but many have the scars of time, fall into ruins or get pulled down for big housing projects.
For my accomodations I wanted to stay in those old houses and tried several places. Read my accomodation tips for that.
On Changkat you can find many restored and well kept shophouses turned into restaurants of all tastes. The latest is Werner´s, a restaurant with European cuisine run by two Germans - well, the great restauration of the house is the star of the place.
