Place in the heart of city for lots of cheap, great bargains, eg on watches, mobile gadgets, trinkets, clothes, and so forth. Ideal for budget shopping, great food options, hotels and even relaxing massage.

It is the shopping paradise for shopaholics who are looking for very good bargains for items ranging from bags, shoes, clothes. The only minus point is that it is quite crowded and not very clean. Apart from that, a very good shopping experience.

It's mostly fake watches market. It's not a place to go if you're looking to immerse yourself in the culture. For that I recommend Thean Hou Temple.

Jalan Petaling is the main covered street in KL's Chinatown, chock full of eateries and souvenir hawkers, best at nighttime when the full arrays of vendors are out and about.

Didn't find the stalls exciting; all were selling similar low quality imitation bags, shoes, clothes etc. Went in the day so it was very hot. Not a long street and most shops in the shophouses on both sides were not opened yet. Went to patronise...More

Go Early, and enjoy the less crowd moment. This place serves best breakfast early in the morning with less crowd. Able to enjoy each of the corner and slowly back to old days of Kuala Lumpur.

In the midst of Chinatown, this is the place for shopping for Gucci bags, Rolex watches & other expensive brands...if you don't have or want to spend that fabulous kind of money. A covered street about 3-400 meters in length, crowded with stalls & people....More

You cannot come to KL and not go down (or up) Petaling Street, if nothing else to watch other visitors haggling over purchases. There are (literally) hundreds of stalls selling all sorts of stuff from souvenirs to fake branded goods, from fresh fruit and veg...More
