It's fun to go through Petaling Street aka Chinatown and see the variety of things on sale there. T-shirts and souvenirs are quite cheap. Chanced upon a cool little shop called Lost in Chinatown with a Bruce Lee figure outside.

This is a typical big city China Town. Great place for knock-off's. Don't pay the first price that is thrown out to you, always haggle and go down at least half of what the price is. They are always willing to deal.

A traveler in Kuala Lumpur should not miss to visit this place. In China Town, you can get the things cheaper than other places in KL. If you can eat Chinese food then you will find their variety of foods too.

They are usually open, and even on holiday days some of them are open. Please note that in China town, when shopping, you can considerably reduce the price with respectful dialogue.
