Glorious food , cheap, flavorsome, all options available in a quiet setting. Way better than the main food street . Don't bother with the cheap shopping except if that is what you actually want !

The China town in Kuala Lumpur was very good, not too cheap, all kinds of clothes, decorations were available here, all kinds of herbs and teas were also available here, but a very dirty market, all kinds of junk and papers lying on the floor....More

China Town offers the lowest quality of everything that's available in KL. Haggling is a must because you will be quoted prices equivalent to legitimate showrooms. For those looking for fakes of high end watch brands, this is the place - no "first copies" though....More

It's all full of fake Made-in-China crap, nothing genuine, shop attendants without a soul. Seriously today they call China town to anything just because they decorate it with those red orgaments. Don't go, don't buy the crap.

A good place to visit during your stay in KL. You can find tons of fake bag, wallet, electronic items, etc... Remember to bargain as the price is always been lifted up 2, 3 times here. Haha...

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.
