Another shoppers paradise of KL. This roads are always jam packed with traffic and shoppers and stretches from Chow Kit Road, past Little India and right up to Merdeka Square. The Sogo Department store and Maju Junction Mall are located along this road.

If you are looking for good quality batik, sold in 2 meter lengths, there is a shop just downhill from Sogo, called Gaya Warisan Collection. If you are buying many and paying in cash, haggle. This shop has the best value batik I have seen in KL.

But it was interesting as it was so crowded, lot of shops and lot of restaurants. We were overwhelmed with the open sewers too. After a week or so staying in... More
