Travelled on the monorail from the Concorde Hotel and was transferred back in time to one of the few places that I remembered from the late fifties/sixties. The Globe Silk Store side remains much the same but the road has been widened and on the opposite the the Coliseum is still going strong and the waiters seem to been there... More

Went there on our first outing in KL. And it was a bit disappointed as we could not buy anything suitable for us. Most were fabrics for tradional costumes.

It's a place for shopping and foods. You can get variety of cloths and foods especially more people during "Ramadan" before Hari Raya time. You find old and new building here too.

Jalan TAR is a must-go shopping haven which should not be missed. You can get the best fabrics, scarves, jubah/gowns and all sorts of clothes bags shoes you name it they got it all at very nominal price. Bargain as much as you can. Most shops close by 8 pm so be there well before 8 as you need at... More

Countless stalls and shops sell an amazing... More
