Kuala Lumpur Chinatown Street and Central Market

Kuala Lumpur Chinatown Street and Central Market

No trip to Kuala Lumpur is complete without a journey through the illuminated evening hours.

Though the city is bustling throughout the daytime, KL truly comes alive at night. Naturally, you are going to want to see the glow of the cityscape, like the KLCC Twin Towers.

But at the epicenter of these highlights are two shopping points that offer a combination of cultural experiences, bargain prices, and beautiful sights.

Chinatown is based on Petaling Street, and it is immersed in Chinese heritage. If you are looking for decently priced goods, like Chinese herbs, clothing, food, or souvenirs, Chinatown has so much in store for you.

Plus, at light, the street is lit up in a festival of colors. There are other temples such as:

  • Sir Mahamariamman Temple
  • Kuan Yin Temple
  • Chan See Shu Yuen Temple
  • Sin Sze Si Ya Temple to visit.

No place is better for perusing though than the 120 year old Central Market, the artistic headquarters of KL and classified Heritage Site. If you stop by the Batik Emporium, you may even find an impromptu art or dance performance!

See it all with a Night Tour.
