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

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.
