Fast turning into islamic clothing street, coupled with bags and textile. Is no longer interesting as variety has turned into boredom due to limited choice.

Full of crowds especially during weekend and other important holiday festivals. However, if you like good bargains with a lot of variety on clothing items and such, or simply just want to take in a different experience in KL then this is the place for you. A must go for bargain hunters. Tips: Wear slippers and use public transportation to... More

Every year during ramadhan i will shop here to get our traditional clothing for our Aid Mubarrak celebration. I prefer wisma yakin in Jalan TAR to purchase my son's baju melayu as it is of high quality. I prefer first lady in Jalan Tar to purchase my daughters baju kurung. All accessories like tudung, samping and etc are quite cheap... More

This area is the oldest in Kuala Lumpur where shoppers used to enjoy their cheap buying. Food of many varieties can still be available for cheap price. The busiest road during working days. A must see for tourists.

Be ready to walk about a few metres as if the road become congestion, i think you need to get out from the taxi/bus and walk to the shopping place. When Sogo throw a sale, the road may become very packed with cars and other vehicles... I just suggest to eat at the clean and safe place such as fast... More
