Changkat - Great area for bar hopping and eating

We spent two of our 4 nights in this area, enjoying the atmosphere, bars, and tapas style dining. Safe area with lots of people and lights. Havana was our favorite bar. Good... read more

Amazing location with lots of restaurants, food stands, and a lot of shopping to do! There's an Arabic quarter too with some great shisha and food (Sanaa restaurant) must see!

I do understand why people say there's not much to do in KL- besides shop. There's at least 4 if not a million shopping centres here, and frankly, compared to those in Singapore, they're pretty underwhelming. Because they're mostly international brands, you could be anywhere in the world. The smaller market stall are filled ith sleazy men and uninteresting interchangable... More

Yes, very well known for shopping. I believe it was safe even our guide told us need to be careful with our belongings. But as a city of development in mood, so many constructions were on progress. So make this road polluted and hard to breath sometimes with the heat of KL

It was my second visit to Bukit Bintang. It is a must to visit when you are at Bukit Bintang. A safe place to be at, with lots of shopping centres and restaurants. I just feel like I am at my home country.

This is the place of most tourist gathering in KL. in weekends like a food and shopping festival. everyone who visit their shouldn't missed the most famous Asian food cultures. very easy access to all transport and links and other hotels and tourist attractions around KL from the Bukit Bingtang.

This seems to be the trendy area and there are some nice shopping malls ranging from typical Malaysian malls to those with high end shops. Some good hotel chains in the area and lots of places to eat and drink. Other travellers say beware of pickpockets and muggings. We were fortunate enough not to experience this and did not witness...

We lived there for couple of weeks. It is touristy — but not a trap — you may find alright semi-local food joints there, if you want. Bar street is noisy indeed — and stay away from co-called famous food street. Bad idea.

if you want to visit Kuala Lumpur, better to look for hotel around this area. easy to find food and other things. many shops and restaurants (from lower class to high class) in this area. nothing special in this area, but you won't get bored because this area offers many things and also night life.
