If you are a tourist, please thread this location with extra care. There are lots of snatch thieves, illegal motobike racing and drug addicts along this place. It's a very Malay concentrated area. You may want to be extra careful if you decide to have a little adventure along this stretch of road.

A street performance, many shops. A variety of offers. A modern option is the Japanese Sogo department store. Don' t forget the oldest steakhouse in KL, an oldfashioned English style restaurant .

This place is a shopping heaven for clothing and apparel. You can get it with a cheap price and good quality. But this place is usually crowded. Beware to the pick pocket and bullies.
