Petaling Street is one of the oldest streets in Kuala Lumpur. Perhaps as old as the city itself. While being dubbed as the Chinatown of Kuala Lumpur, this street is famous for being one of the main street bazaars in Malaysia. Previously, hundreds of small umbrellas were set up to cover the traders from rain and sun. However, it is now covered by a permanent roof. This street is also famous for selling many cheap fake items such as designer bags and watches. One thing has not changed though – the scene of traders and buyers swarming the place during daytime. I had an opportunity to drive passed Petaling Street during one midnight and it looked totally different. Scarily empty and quiet.
Have you been to Petaling Street? What do you think of it?
