Lively street markets, food stalls, temples and art galleries, Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown is an exciting city. A perfect opportunity to experience the local culture awaits you!
Despite being a completed different atmosphere from the shopping centres you’ll find in central Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Street in Chinatown is cited as a shopper’s haven. With shops and stalls on either side of the street, you’re bound to find some interesting things and at quite a good price if you think you’ve got great bargaining skills! Just 350 metres from Travelodge Central Market, Kuala Lumpur, this street becomes livelier in the night.
A famous tourist attraction and familiar spot, central market mainly focuses on the artistic community. Classified as a heritage site by the National Heritage Department, you’ll find authentic batik Malaysian prints, souvenir stalls, and several artistic items. Central market is conveniently located close to major transportation links, easily accessible from most areas and hotels in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
When you visit the central market, drop by at Kasturi Walk, an open-air flea market located right next to it. Established in 2011, the kiosks and stalls are fairly new and clean. Food stalls are abundant, selling most delicacies to satisfy any and every one of your cravings!
Visit some of the beautiful temples around Chinatown such as Chan See Shu Yuen Temple, one of the oldest and largest surviving Buddhist temples. Kuan Ti Temple, Sin Sze Si Ya Temple, and Kuan Yin Temple are a few more temples to consider dropping by for religious and cultural insight.
