Petaling street offers variety of shopping options, you can get some good deal here based on your bargaining skills. Along with shopping you can enjoy authentic Chinese food here and some fresh juices.

Yes you can, lots of them. They are made in China & Korea mainly. Remember to negotiate the price! Hope this help. Cheers!
