#3 of 18 in Neighborhoods in Malaysia
Neighborhood Flea Market
Experience a bustling cultural district at Chinatown - Kuala Lumpur. Originally settled by Cantonese and Hakkas drawn here because of the tin trade--and then partially destroyed during an 1870s civil war among Chinese immigrants--today the quarter retains an evocative atmosphere. Locals and tourists alike head here for the abundance of Chinese cuisine, international stores, and market stalls selling an array of trinkets, merchandise, and groceries. Haggling remains common, so make sure to give it a try if you want to secure the best possible price for what you find.
