Chinatown - Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur

1.8
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. Put Chinatown - Kuala Lumpur on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kuala Lumpur visit app .

  • Fascinated by the fake watches on sale. How do they produce them and sell them for a few pounds? Very friendly stall holders who do not push you to buy.  more »
  • So is a Chinatown as Chinatown. Still worth a visit especially the Petaling Street. From 17:00 we go there properly. It is sold what can be sold and traded as usual, and traded. Everything is completely unobtrusive.

  • I like morning Athough here because the goal is not shopping but more to the cuisine. Many of the meals and snacks are available here (ranging from Kosher to non halal). The price is also in the bag.
