The place is alive and thriving - be prepared for jam

This place is closest to JB CIQ (Checkpoints, Immigration & Quarantine), in fact you can walk across. There's City Square and other shopping, money changers and eateries nearby... read more

From its air conditioned shopping malls of Kota Raya, Komtar, & City Square to the rows of shophouses on Segget area, there are lots of things to see & buy. Great shopping belt & experience especially when after skyfall & the "pasar karat" is starting to set up. Recommended checking out Chaiwalla Container Cafe - a quaint cafe by the... More

This place is closest to JB CIQ (Checkpoints, Immigration & Quarantine), in fact you can walk across. There's City Square and other shopping, money changers and eateries nearby. The place is going through a modern transformation, a bit congested and chaotic so if you're ok with that you'll survive the buzz

There are many places to go for shopping here. Name it City Square and also Komtar. Komtar has been rebranded and refurbished to a new look. The ambience is way much better than City Square

Famous for its restaurant Kam Long curry fishhead (金龙咖喱鱼头) on it's street. There's always a long queue outside this restaurant. best to eat on the spot if you could wait. If you can't, buy the take away (opt for frozen one) on the left side of the shop (cooking counter) and buy it home to savor it later on.

Very unpleasant environment to walk along this road if you are not looking for a specific outlet. Many people, especially loitering along this street and some street peddlers sitting along the closed shopfront. Nothing much along the road, unless you are brave enough to venture into the back alleys where you can find several open-air food stalls.

Great place for a foodie adventure especially at night. The back alleys are filled with food stalls that you can choose during night time. Take your pick of Malay, Indian or Chinese stuffs. The night cafes and tea shops are also filled with patrons at night. This night market is also very accessible from this street.

Not the place for faint hearted or foreigners esp you don t look local as there are lots of hustlers, beggars, to hustle you besides snatch thieves prying on local and foreign unsuspecting handbag carriers. There have been casualties. Being the adventurer I m , the side streets next to glitzy city square offers me a different world where you... More

You get almost everything you need from this street. A walk and a cup of coffee observing the locals, chilled yourself from the hot weather in the Mall. Very bad traffic though.
