Little India is a good place for taking in KL's Indian cultural heritage. Not too much to buy here that you can't buy anywhere else but still a nice stroll if you have time for it

There is an awesome Indian sweets shop here too called Venusitas which... More

Quite a walk from the train station. Remember to bring umbrella if you are heading here as the place is very open. From the start, many stalls that sells the same things like hairscarft, kain, sari and clothes. Bargain first before buying. Good place to hunt for kain! Food wise, no need to worry. Lots of local food. Cheap and... More

It's also on walking distance from Petaling Street (China Town). The Masjid Jamek is only 200 meters away from this shopping bazaar. The heart... More
