Chinatown (Petaling Street)
The Petaling Street (Chinatown) in Kuala Lumpur is like the Bukit Bintang of the older part of Kuala Lumpur. It maintains much of its traditional atmosphere, particularly at night when vendors fan out their merchandise along the street.
It is a lively stretch of shops, restaurants and hawker stalls. It is one of KL’s best-known shopping spots offering an assortment of watches, accessories, clothes, crafts and souvenirs. The streets are lined by buildings, clan houses and temples which stand as testament to the city’s architectural heritage.
