If your bargaining skills are not very strong,like me you will end up not buying anything from here. But still a good place to walk and check out things.

I love Chinatown, full of exciting fake items.. lol people haggling prices and intresting fun smells. KLs Chinatown isnt as good as Bangkoks but it's cool for a quick stop through.

Rather disappointing. Basically one big souvenir-shop where almost everything is fake. If that's your thing, then this is the right place.

It is one of the best Chinatown i visited till date. Like all other Chinatown, you can do both shopping and eating over here. However, bargain skill is must if you are doing shopping over here. A hard bargain can win the day for you.

This is a cool part of Chinatown and we had some fun shopping. Lots of replicas and some neat goods as well. Had some food and enjoyed our time. Everything is negotiable..... 😆

The street market open early in the morning about 9am but it only gets busy during the afternoon lunch time. If you want to escape the heat, go during the evening. Say 6 or 7pm and the street market activities starts to wind... More

It's all good market prices. The stall holders will want your money and expect to haggle so don't disappoint them.
