I usually stay in Bukit Bintang (BB). Lots of hotels here, I prefer the ones with swimming pools, but the back packer ones look decent too. Lots of constructions here and traffic is bad most days. Lots of restaurants catering for the tourist crowd. There used to be some retail shops, but I did not see them this time. Same... More

Its worth packing half a case if you want to go to Bukit Bintang. Here the shopping is as good as it gets in KL and you will soon be walking home with bags and bags of goodies. You can still bargain for everything, there is no such thing as a fixed price.

The road is very near the MRT, so it's convenient to come. It's full of food, from India, China to Thai, from restaurant to street food. The price is not so cheap but it's okie. Shopping here is not a good idea since u can find a bargain in Sentral Market.

More action in the evening than during the day. Big shopping malls and many great restaurants. A bit crowded and touristy but definitely a cool area to stay in.

This is it... only if you don't mind overcrowded streets/shops/restaurants... Bukit Bintang is the most happening place in the whole KL. It has street food markets like Jalan Alor, Shopping Centres like Pavilion, Quality yet cheap hotels like Park Royal... I loved my stay at BB and definitely will come back to KL only for BB.

I stayed near Bukit Bintang, this location was amazing. You can enjoy their variety of food, or you can shop till you drop in this area, or if you like night life you have so many choice in this area. Just beware of your belongings, because it was a crowded area. And be careful of people who offers you an... More

Can be ultra expensive, or if you're willing to hunt some bargains to be had. One of the book stores had huge discounts. Okay scenery and layout but unfortunately construction was taking place, however the giant fountain outside the mall at streets end was pretty awesome.

You can find both the expensive brands and cheap stuff there. In some of the shops you can bargain for a better price. It took hours to walk around the market!
