Jalan Petaling, Kuala Lumpur

2.4
Step under the metal roof running the length of Jalan Petaling to enter a bustling Chinatown, lined with busy shops and street stalls. On this street, most hawkers sell knock-off designer goods and local food, of which the latter is worth your attention. You can sample a wide variety of Chinese specialties, as well as many South Asian dishes and tasty favorites from all over the world. Get the best price on goods by trying your bargaining skills on local vendors. To visit Jalan Petaling on your trip to Kuala Lumpur, use our Kuala Lumpur trip itinerary builder .
