A happening area

Reminded me a little bit of Piccadilly Circus in London but with lots of construction. I'm sure KL will be finished one day but much of it is just a giant building site!

In the day time, there is food stalls nearby & shopping malls nearby. The Arabic restaurants is a surprise find, with prices far far less than what I paid in Doha & Dubai.

Basically a tourist area dominated by hotels, malls and restaurants. Depressingly reminiscent of horrors like London's West End, Oxford St etc. Lots of theme bars, massage places, and over-priced restaurants. With the extensive redevelopment apparently set for years to come general chaos adds to the locale's general dispiriting mix.

Changkat Bukit Bintang has some if the most friendly and relaxed bars in Asia. The food, live bands and piped music are always top notch in all of the bars.

I didn't really like this place. I don't know why. But, there are some nice spots to take a picture. There are some good stores and mall to shopping.

Bukit Bintang has all that you need in one place. Shopping Malls, Restaurants serving from chinese to lebanese, clubs, pub, bars. For local food lovers you have Jalan Alor which is very near by. Well connected by Monorail too, this place is a must for any visitor to KL.
