You cannot come to KL and not go down (or up) Petaling Street, if nothing else to watch other visitors haggling over purchases. There are (literally) hundreds of stalls selling all sorts of stuff from souvenirs to fake branded goods, from fresh fruit and veg...More

Nothing special here. Fake bags, watches, clothes and a lot of food stalls and even more people. Like chinatown elsewhere but not as good. If you are in the are then go for an experience, otherwise skip it.
