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

Some say it is a waste of time visiting the " not so clean" little India in Kuala Lumpur but for me it is worth the time. Well known as "Brickfields" little India is the best place learn about the cultures of Hindu people. Here, I was able to hear their captivating music as it was played loudly in the... More

We re-visited Kuala Lumpur last month and we had a tour for the first time at Little India (we were not able to visit this place before due to time constraints). Anyway, our hotel was just near the area so we decided to visit the place... I wasn't expecting to feel like I was in India. Well, I have not... More

I don't know what's not to like about Little India in Kuala Kumpur. The streets are colorful, the food smells good and there is always something going on. Be sure to stop at one of the local places for something to eat, but watch your stomach. Crazy place. Worth it.

You would think you were in India when you're here!! Indian restaurants, shops etc all jostle for space alongside older residential properties. Everything looks like it is owned / run by Indians. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Worth a courtesy visit as the Indian influence is such a part of modern day Malaysia.....
