We got plenty of street food from various establishments here and all were delicious. Highly recommended the satay chicken and the Chinese pancakes. Food hygiene standards were high. Neither of us got sick eating anything.

China Town is famous with Chines products and goods . But you need to bargain with them because when they see tourist they always double or triple the price

Went to China Town, lots of reasonable goods. The whole area is transformed into a lively night market. It’s called the Petaling Street. This place is also popular for local cuisine.

Chinatown's are getting similar across all continents. In today's frenetic world it has become more difficult to find old world charm. Had a tasty dinner.

The Chinatown is no longer manage by Chinese as they hired foreigners to take care of their stalls. Bargaining is a must. The famous wanton noodle is no longer an attraction as the place is quite dirty now.

Not the cleanest place to walk around at night looking for restaurants. Lots of rats I saw running around. The big market is there too which is ok for a look and shop if good at bargaining.

Nice to see Chinatown but no particular difference to Chinatown in other cities. Usual array of goods on sale and bartering is expected. Try and find the lane with murals as you enter Chinatown as they are amazing

They are usually open, and even on holiday days some of them are open. Please note that in China town, when shopping, you can considerably reduce the price with respectful dialogue.
