Jumped on the LRT to get to Chinatown, so easy to get to. Really just a market with lots,of stalls selling fake brand gear. Handbags, watches the usual things. The stall holders are easy going and don't hassle you though.

Very crowdes and narrow. So many bargains and copy goods. If you dont like the smell of malay/chinese food then this is not the place to go. Be prepared to haggle hard.

Yes they do sell suitcases - mostly hard shell ones as far as I could see. As to the price, no idea as I was not shopping for them but you have to haggle anyway.
