Found the Kien Fatt Medical Store. It's not an option for reviews here. Was recommended years ago by family running my hostel. I went twice for acupuncture to treat jet lag. Over 30 hours of travel and 15 hour time change shocks the body! Treatment...More

Petaling street market was as I remembered as a kid. A heaven for designer imitations from Chanel handbags to Rolex watches. The chinese owners now have the Bangladeshis working as salespersons now. Enjoy the 'browse and haggle'. Please don't forget to walk away and then...More

Unbelievable that so many traders selling fake goods, with their favourite tagline of "Genuine Copy". Its extremely busy and dirty. Lots of food places but I would not trust any of them considering the dirtiness of the place. Worth to experience but save your money.

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