Its a good place to get souvenirs but you need to have good bargaining skills. I didn't end up buying anything from here. But still a good place to experience KL.

I have visited many China towns around the world but found this one lacking. Short on variety, dull and uninteresting, did nothing for me at all. Nothing like Singapore or Kowloon.

Its a street with many street stalls managed by migrant workers who are not even Chinese. To get a good deal, do some bargaining. What is Chinese about this street is perhaps the food.

Nothing to see, shop or eat. Rather than a China town it is more a China street market. More like a street bazaar with cheap chinese products.

We had a lot of delicious food in the China town. Recommend the tofu with sugar syrup, noodle and cendol

Hands down one of the best Chinatowns I’ve been to. The way Chinese culture is ingrained in Malaysia is really unlike anywhere else I’ve seen outside of China/Taiwan/HK. Chinatown is a must see and a must when it comes to the endless list of great...More

Visited Chinatown street at night and had dinner with family. Food is acceptable base on price charged. Try to recall the last visit memory about 15 years ago. The setup now is much better with cover roof and convenient to shop even on rainy day....More

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.
