Spent the day wandering around and shopping. I am not so much a fan of the standard tourist junk, but we did find some nice stores. Cosmic Silk was my favorite. We bought a bunch of fabric and pashminas. Sometimes the pashminas were cheaper than the fabric they were made out of.

I took a walk through Little India during the afternoon. The atmosphere was lively, with shopping and eating on the streets, and Indian pop music blaring from the record shops. This is a great place to take a stroll, get a cheap meal, and window shop for Saris and gold jewelry.

As such, this places becomes buzzing with activity during the various festivals celebrated by each religion. There is never a dull moment in this place. And to top... More

This was a brilliant side of KL. I loved exploring the Indian culture and I truly fell like I was in India from the shops, the street markets to the restaurants it’s just a pure cultural fusion. I recommend to go visit this place at night when it’s all lit up and buzzing make sure you try some authentic Indian... More

Despite the fact that it's a bit smelly it's still worth a visit to see all the various stalls selling all manner of batiks and saris etc

Mmmmmm the food is delicious and so, so cheap. Many of the little Indian restaurants lined up along the streets will sell Masala Dosa with Free sauce refills. Do it! The rest of little India is OK. The stalls are a bit tacky, but hey. Overall definitely check it out.

There are a few interesting things to see here but the streets are not very clean in this part of KL. You can easily reach the area by LRT train. There was a fairly big Indian temple which we could not see much inside as there was a ritual going on. Also some beautiful Buhda statues. We also bought a... More

It was the lure of vegetarian food and shopping that led us to little india. We took a monorail ride and LRT to reach masjid jamek and from there our famished group walked over to LI for vegetarian food. We ate at the first hotel where we sighted veg food that is Anjappar. The food quality was good and liked... More

Really interesting but very dirty. Makes you not want to try eating the food. I was still impressed with respect for the culture but not the most enticing with how dirty the area was.
