KL's Chinatown is great; sights, smells, sounds - they all envelop you as you arrive. The place does not really get going until late afternoon and by early evening it's crazy. People everwhere and everyone having a great time.

You can shop for everything here - leathergoods, shoes, clothes, materials, linen, lots of traditional items and of course souvenirs of every description.

It does get very crowded so if you don't like crowds go early. It can also be very hot under the awnings and between the stalls.

Key words: Bargain, Bargain, Bargain.....

Address: Petaling Street
