If you come at night, you better wear a simple t-shirt and short pants because at the night the road will be full with the shop and you will even hard to breath in the peak hours such as weekend because there will be very crowded and you will even hard to walk. There is the place to get fake branded stuff for a low price but i don't think the quality is good enough, so better just go here at day to take a look rather than at night when the place is full of people. There are also a lot of pickpocket in the night so you must very becareful with your belongings. Don't forget to try the famous "Air Mata Kucing" in the junction of Petaling street. Its weird to trans late in english because its means "cat's tears". Actually its kind of traditional drink with longan inside. Its very famous among locals and taste nice. If you are lucky you can find "Muarchi" seller near with the "Air Mata Kucing" seller. Its kind of sweet sticky cake and based on the shop, she have sell it since long time ago. But, mostly its quiet hard to find it because even i have go there several times i just met her 2 times.
