Petaling Street is the Chinatown of Kuala Lumpur. Although Chinatown consists or more than just this one street, Petaling Street has become synonymous with Chinatown.
Day or night, the streets are always bustling with activity. There are many street vendors selling food, fruit stands, clothing, souvenirs, purses, electronics, watches, and just about anything else imaginable. Beware that many imitation brand name goods are sold, so if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
If street food is your thing, there are many options to choose from in Chinatown. It would be worthwhile to check it out for a couple hours, who knows what you may run across.
