Petaling Street, also known as ‘Chinatown’, is located in the older section of Kuala Lumpur. The open-air night market in the street is popular with bargain-hunters. Clothing, accessories and local Chinese food can be bought at very reasonable prices here.
Petaling Street, in the very heart of the city’s Chinatown, is a bargain hunter’s paradise with a wide selection of inexpensive clothings, imitation watches and CDs, among others. The adjacent Central Market houses a rich collection of Malaysian arts and crafts. Cultural performances, demonstrations and activities are also held there regularly.
