China town in Kuala Lumpur

China town in Kuala Lumpur

is our favourite area of the city. Yes it might be grimy in places and overcrowded at times but the mix of an always-buzzing tourist atmosphere and Kuala Lumpur local life make it an appealing area to visit or stay.

Bustling markets, street kitchens and old architecture are what makes these streets so appealing and there are plenty of things to do in Chinatown Kuala Lumpur to warrant multiple visits

Chinatown is going through a period of change with new trendy cafes and eateries popping up every month and some of the old Chinese buildings being renovated and turned into modern, clean hotels. However, the area still holds the charm it’s always had and offers some of the cheapest food and accommodation in the city

Shopping in Kuala Lumpur Chinatown is a must when visiting this big, bustling city. Spread across several streets including Jalan Petaling, Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock and Jalan Hang Kasturi, Chinatown’s shopping bargains are deals of a lifetime, especially at the Petaling Street Night Market. What’s more, shopping in Chinatown is not just about buying modern items; a lot of locals visiting the herbal shops are here to purchase traditional medicine.

Without a doubt, Jalan Petaling, or Petaling Street as locals call it, is the most popular. Housed under a green glass roof, which allows the daily market to operate all day, it is crammed with market stalls selling reproduction designer handbags, shoes, apparel and more.
