Petaling is the main street through KL's Chinatown, chock full of eateries, pubs and shoppes, not to be missed for any visitor.

I have come to this street of sellers many times: they want to sell and, sometimes, prices are negotiable to one third! Sometimes, you cannot distinguish whether what you buy, is original one or not. At least, you can talk to sellers; they put time...More

A terrible place to go shopping. Sellers are rude and intrusive. Quality of goods low. Prices may seem low, but as it is mostly cheap know-off's it's of no value. I would recommend going to the Central Market instead where you can find some proper...More
