Little India is quite different to the rest of KL. Most of KL is Malay, mixed with Chinese, Indian, Western and other cultural influences, both in food, and things to see, which is one of the great parts about this city. Little India on the other hand, is almost exclusively Indian, so that makes it worth a visit. Yes if... More

We were kinda dissapointed how,a developed country like Malaysia could have a part of it still underdeveloped right in the middle of city. Sure,gives you a feel of India,but not that security.

Plenty of covered over stalls offering similar goods to Petaling Street, mainly aimed at Tourists. Not as atmospheric as Chinatown and not many Indians in evidence although some of the streets do have carpet shops etc.on them.

I have to laugh when people say it's just like being in India. Actually, IT'S NOTHING LIKE BEING IN INDIA!! There are no cows or bulls wandering around or lying in the middle of the road. There is no dirt or filth here, or smell of urine or incense, or rats, snotty nosed children, mangy dogs, deformed beggars old men... More

This place was and still is Brickfields to me. It was not called Little India when I was growing up. I had my first 10 years of schooling in this area. A lot has changed. The charm of a quiet place is gone. Today the traffic is so bad that the roads are one-way. it seems something is happening every... More

A great place to visit. Food stalls, cloths, trinkets of all kinds. Leather wallets and belts. C.Ds galore. It's fun, go and enjoy.

Went to LI yesterday with a friend and was thoroughly disappointed. At first we exited the metro station and we were wondering if we actually got off at the right stop. We proceeded to spend most of our time there actually looking for something that could pass for the Main Street in LI, all the while wandering around not the... More
