The next day I started at the lower end of the street and bought nice embroidered, light cottons in bright, flowery prints from Cosmic Fabrics for 16 rm/m. The renovated Kamdar shop was... More

The entire stretch of Tuanku Abdul Rahman Road or Jalan TAR is occupied by textile shops. The abundance of shops means that prices are competitive (bargains are aplenty). You are spoilt for choice as there are fabrics of all sorts of patterns, colours and material. There are shops that offer tailoring too. Plus, if you're looking for cheap ready made... More

Mostly local people will visit this street to enjoy nightlife with family/friends. Some tourist will drop by this area as well, to get cheaper stuff and hang out with local. Varieties of food stall along the way. The place will be full packed with people who like to shop for Festive season on last minute. It is not advisable for... More
