A multitude of stores selling a wide range of goods (especially watches) to cater for the bargain hunter shopper. Haggle with prices of something you are interested in but don't haggle with taxis insist on meter. Great little restaurants for food options too.

As most of the products here are fake one, from clothes, bags, shoes, anything. I come here at night, after 6:00pm so most of the chinese restaurant around already closed, only the stores inside the market. I think it's better to come here at day...More

A great Chinatown. Good to experience but at the same time its like many other Chinatowns I've see all around the world. Good to get some souvenirs and to experience it but i wouldn't put it on your 'must-see' or 'must-do' list.

Great spot for souvenirs, there is even a DHL located right at the entrance. So many great shops. Most people spoke English making it easy to get around.

If "designer" handbags and €20 Rolex is your thing then you have found your spot! Prepare to be hassled to stop at every stall you pass and haggle for everything and walk away if they won't agree to sell at the price you are offering...More

Very busy flea-market style shopping outdoors spread out over 4 streets. Most of the vendors are selling the same stuff. Very high pressure sales tactics and bartering and generally low quality items. Definitely worth a visit simply for the experience though.

With shops up to late at night, and places to eat, this seems to be the hub of downtown KL at night.

It's still called Chinatown and the decor looks it, but most of the businesses here are run by Bangladeshis and Nepalis. It's known for imitation goods so be warned. The vendors also can be outright rude.

Hello! Well in KL you can find some cheap malls to go to like Sungei Wang plaza or Fahrenheit 88 I can't remember the name of others but I found all the stuff there very very cheap.
Is RoslanBin AB Ghani the owner or operator? I'm trying to find his Internet cafe where he works or owns.
