Ramadhan Chinatown Walkthrough.

Petaling Street in Chinatown Kuala Lumpur may be a visual treat but the traders can be a little aggressive. They do not like a camera in their face. Which is quite reasonable, considering almost every product sold there is a counterfeit. And don’t forget that nervous worker is probably a foreigner with a counterfeit work permit.That night I chose to arm myself with only Panasonic compact DMC Lumix LX3.  The low light capability of this little machine is quite amazing, as you will see.

KL Petaling Street or KL China Town.

Petaling Street is the center of Kuala Lumpur's original Chinatown. It's the place that never sleeps. Adventurous visitors should not miss a walk on Petaling Street.Even in daytime you have great bargains. Petaling Street is not open for the traffic. It is a great place for locals to get some goods at bargain prices and certainly an eye-opening experience for tourists.
Imitation Branded Perfume.
Petaling Street is particularly famous for its all-day parade of stalls, that sell imitation goods of all sorts, like: wallets, handbags, t-shirts, watches, shoes and many other things.

It is also great place for foreign tourist to get some goods at bargain prices and certainly an eye-opening experience for tourists.

It’s worth a trip to Petaling Street just to see the sheer madness of it all, people running up and down screaming out the names of the products that they’re selling.
Local  delight.
Although the retail in Petaling Street gets most of the attention, there is plenty of really good Chinese food within the area, so browse around and ask the local merchants (buy something if you have to) and they will guide you to hidden alleyways of local culinary delights!

Getting into Petaling Street is free, however, if you plan to buy something, then we’re not really sure how much you can spend. Though budget about RM 50 if you’re planning to check out the sites and grab a bite in the area. The rest is on your own account!
