Petaling St. (茨厂街 Chinatown)

Pedestrian Street/Plaza
Jalan Petaling
Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur 50000


  • Flea Market.The area has dozens of restaurants and food stalls, serving local favourites such as Hokkien mee, ikan bakar (barbecued fish), asam laksa and curry noodles.
  • From the Gucci bags to the Rolex watches, its the cuisine that's the only thing authentic on Petaling Street! So try it!
  • Bargain 1/2 of what offered, walk away if they don't agree , and you'll get what you want. Most things are fake here, so dont get ripped off for high prices if your a tourist.
  • Try the ikan bakar that will blow off Ur head!! Delicious with spicy spicy and spicy!!! Along hong Leong bank!!
  • Fong lut here very nice. Easy to remove shell.... Fresh I think.
  • The original Chinatown centered on Market Square. Jalan Tun H.S. Lee or High Street, became increasingly popular as it was higher than the rest of the town and therefore less prone to floods.
  • Don't like this place at all. What Chinatown? Should rename this place Banglatown or Nepaltown. Don't get fucked by the Nepal hood with yr aggressive bargaining.
  • If you're looking for cheap clothes, fabrics, souvenirs, electronic items, watches, DVDs, CDs and more? Then Petaling Street is the place for you.
  • Wantan mee in Koon Kee, hidden opposite Hong Leong Bank. The noodle is awesome! Take it from the local KL chap. :)
  • ! ! ^^
  • Perfect place to find fake items. Muahaha. A bit crowded on weekend. Gotta try the ikan bakar Chinese style here. Awesome one! Mouth watering!
  • Sei ngan chai roast duck. Been in business since the 60s or perhaps even longer. It's survived the decades and going still ever strong for a reason. Simple awesome roast duck!
  • Bargain bargain bargain is a MUST!! At least 70%-80%...and and and try e Air Mata Kuching(at the side of the cross junction)...very nice!!!
  • This is not really the same Chinatown anymore, you hardly see Chinese vendor around, mostly foreigners. The leftover Chinese mostly involve in food serving industry at here.
  • The vendors raise the price if they know you are tourists. Try haggling 50% or try walking away like you're not interested to get a better price.
  • Bargain half cheaper than they offer..
  • Go to the cross junction of jln petaling & jln hang lekir and look for the best hokkien noodles
  • Start with 1/3rd of the quoted price. Be adamant and prep to walk off if price not met. There are many other shops selling the same stuff. Be careful of your valuables. Closes at 2200h. Have fun.
