I have been to this place about 5 years back, and it used to be thriving with good merchandise and souvenirs. However, during my last visit, I found the quality of the products to have diminished along with variety. The place has become somewhat rundown and the products are not as cheap as it used to be. It's okay for... More

Visiting Jalan Petaling is well worth a visit. I found the night time market offerred a greater range of stalls. Don't accept the original price , barter for a better deal. The shops behind the stalls, even though difficult to see have really good prices and usually different products. Food and drink are available . In the little street prior... More

Enter Petaling street and embrace a huge array of different foods and experiences like no where else. Set aside at least 2-3 hours and bring about 20RM to experience most foods and leave you full. Jam packed with vendors selling many different goods from fake fancy things (esp watches and sunnys) to locally made clothing. The food was a highlight... More

I tried a lot of food here from wonton to chest nut. Honestly, I love the food very much. One thing I don't like much is the atmosphere. Maybe Petaling is a tourist destination therefore it is not able to show its fact but somehow we have to accept. Also you can buy souvenirs but should bargain, ;). Check prices... More

Good place to go for replica hand bags in KL. Stall holders only display poor quality bags so ask to see their showroom for the good ones! They can be quite pricey though averaging AUD 150 for a good bag. Remember to shop around and bargain!

I love this Street, where you can barter and buy almost anything but the most popular wares are handbags and watches plus a whole lot more. Go in the morning as it is not so busy as in the afternoon the walkway fills up with even more stalls and you can hardly get moved while they are setting up. You... More

Must visit to experience the hustle and bustle, along with great street side food. Plenty of shopping, but need to be wary of fake branded goods. Must bargain. Usually can get 30% discount at least by asking and insisting. Watch the pick pockets.
