It is a great place to see if you've never been to KL before, just beware of over bearing vendors and the fake brand name items at great prices. It gives light to the Indian culture submersed in Malaysia.

If you a foodie and specially a vegetarian, you should take out time to eat here. Its worth trying the Saravana Bhavan, Gayatri Vilas, Sangeeta, Anjappanar. Not much to see if not for the food.

This is a place for bargains and cheap prices but nothing spectacular. A market atmosphere as expected, the people are friendly but as a foreigner you become the salesman's target...

Our tour guide (Indian) was very proud of these streets. Apparently the current PM came to KL to dedicate this area and help to increase Indian cultural significance on the area. The architecture is unique and fun to explore. A great place to go shopping or have lunch/dinner. As the others said- be aware of the pickpockets and tourist traps... More

Little India is a bustling area in Brickfields with streets and alleys filled with vendors selling coulouful saris, bangles, prayer items and restaurants serving banana leaf rice. Nu Sentral and the Kuala Lumpur Sentral Station is now next to it.

Knowing more about Malaysia's diverse culture, a visit in Brickfields must be on your list. Some walk from the KL Sentral station or from Monorel Tun Sambathan, you can reach the area. It is a medium sized town outside Kuala Lumpur. Colorful decorations and the swirly design with the street lights along the streets will tell you you are in... More
