Chinatown - Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur: 105 reviews and 157 photos
The original Chinatown of KL was established during the British colonial days in the Petaling Street area as a settlement site for the Chinese community in KL. For years the area maintains much of its traditional atmosphere, with a Bhudist temple and shops selling incense, gems, traditional medicines as well as famous Chinese eateries.
Early in the afternoon till late evening vendors will spread their wares on the street with more items to sell. The place is especially notorious for imitation goods on sale here - from designer stuffs to illegal VCDs/DVDs.
Recently, the area has been upgraded with canopy roof covering the streets. Nevertheless, the area still maintains its charm and still pulling in the crowd for bargain hunting, especially for imitation goods.
Even if shoping or dining is not the main purpose of going there, wandering around in Chinatown still an enjoyable experience with its spectacular sights and sounds.
Address: Jalan Petaling, Kuala Lumpur.
