This is the main shopping district of Kuala Lumpur. Here, there are Pavillion Mall, Lot 10 Shopping Mall, Sungei Wang Plaza, Starhill Shopping Centre, Fahrenheit 88 shopping complex and various shops and restaurants.

My wife and I walked along this area several times during our recent holiday in Kuala Lumpur, where we stayed at Berjaya Times Square Hotel, within this area, for 9 nights.

A very busy place full of shopping lots and malls for those who enjoy shopping with easy via the local mrt lines and also plenty of eating places offering lots of local delicacies and fine dining as well. Make it a 2-in-1 shopping cum visiting batu caves or the Twin Towers too. Beautiful decorations ready for Christmas

I read that Bintang Walk is KL's premier shopping, dining and people watching street where trendy shoppers are in abundance. There is a plethora of outlets, dining, coffee shops, gift & souvenir, shops where there is something to suit all pockets, malls, etc. and also that great vibe from the crowds present.

The moment we left our hotel, we realized we should be wearing trekking shoes instead of designer bouquet shoes. The pavement is filthy, broken tiles and rubbish all over the place. It's even worst when it's raining. Broken pavement tiles and you get water all over your shoes. The all area is a big construction site, and the new subway train will be operating in years to come, not now. The all Jalan Bukit Bintang walk is honestly without bias, A total nightmare, really! Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur is real third world country in the true meaning of the word. One on side of the pavement from our hotel leading toward KFC and lot 10, there are elderly local Chinese touts, seating all day, outside table at Papa Rich Restaurant opposite our hotel. They will whisper to your ear; ''young girls'' and passing name card with telephone numbers to you. You can if you wanted, get under age girls, or even boys! The market is full of mostly China prostitutes but there are also plenty of other Asian girls. The Arabs love it, and the market is for them, not the western tourists who come to KL for sightseeing, not for cheap sex. As you stroll further, you have petty Algerian and Tunisian touts who really are professional pick picketers, so don't buy on the street so everyone can see where you put your wallet. Forget about the police, they are all lazy lads. If they are not busy playing with there mobile phones, they are too often seating at corner table chatting, laughing and doing nothing, they are most of them completely useless officer without no discipline. As you approach Lot 10 and further, you have several guys in colorful costumes, pink, cold, green or blue, they will shout at you if you don't give them a tip while taking their pictures. They are rude and impolite and we saw them shooting at Arabs tourist. They block the pavement and are mostly opposite H&M department store and facing the entrance to the Monorail station, blocking everyone free passage. On weekend, we saw entertainers with stolen wild life from the rain forests. Monkeys, Snakes, Tropical Parrots, and even an albino python.! Those are extremely endanger rain forests species, and the local Police did nothing to stop it. Arabs tourist were taking photos and they were making lots of money, that is why the police do nothing, they get a kick-back. Further toward Zara store, we were approach by a throng of Filipinos selling counterfeited branded watches; Panerai, Cucci, Rolex, name it. And some touts even try to sell us a stolen mobile phone 6! The place becomes a total chaotic, we could hardly walk. BE VERY VERY CAREFUL. The pickpockets are all in force around that area, this is where all the 5 Stars hotels are located. Silly tourists even go to the corner money changers, and, showing exactly how much they have and giving golden opportunities to the pickpockets to locate wallets. The area is full of Egyptian, and Arab prostitutes, so this is not for you. Go further and visit The Pavilion shopping Mall, the best is the area. You can forget Fahrenheit mall op[posit, it's too tacky and lousy mall. Don't even bother to go to StarHill, the place is swarming with security guards looking more like gangsters. They are too intimidating and the place is stressful and only the local corrupt officials and crooked go there to buy very expensive branded watches and top of the line jewelery. If you need a taxi near the entrance of Pavilion or Millennium Hotel,forget it, they are all dishonest Indian drivers, they will take you for a ride if you are not sure of the exact price, since they all refuse to put the meter down. Don't believe a word they tell you, they are all liars and just want to charge you as much as possible. It's even more expensive than in Singapore or Hong Kong! If it's raining, you will be approached by young boys selling china made plastic umbrella costing nothing, but they will try to ask you for too much, so wait for the rain to stop because the umbrella you would buy from them cost nothing much, yet they asked as much as 5 to 7 euro. Some will even ask Arabs to pay 10 euro. Everyone trying to sell you something along Jalan Bukit Bintang is a total joke, Mostly all dishonest people praying on innocent to tourists, so beware and AVOID THE STREET. Stay inside the shopping Malls.

Bintang walk is a good place to visit for the first time tourist. Getting there is easy using either the monorail or by Taxi..or if your lucky to get a nearby Hotel nothing beats walking and taking in the various sites and cultures.

I just recently visited the place and was amazed with all the attractions that anyone can enjoy...there are various attractions with varying price points as well from the ultra cheap to the swanky high end...for food the walk is lined with your standard food chain (if thats what your craving for) or the local food as well as a lot of international restaurants and food stalls. One attraction that stood out for our family was this Arabic Ice Cream stall that had entertaining fellows who would churn the ice cream and lift it on a ling wooden pole... this was definitely a crowd stopper as many people were curious to see what these energetic men were doing... in fact they even gave out free ice cream for tasting which my wife was able to partake of..

For those wanting to sample authentic malaysian chinese cooking don't forget to check out the food court of Lot 10 building ...we were able to discover it on our last day and wished we had gone there everyday!! lots of food choices at very reasonable prices...

All in all for those staying a few days in the Bukit Bintang area this should be a very good place to visit...again and again!!

This pedestrian walk is actually a very broad walkway running along the busiest road in KL (Bukit Bintang Road). It runs from Pavilion Mall at one end and ends about 1Km down the road. Its sort of like Broadway in NYC. "Bintang" is a malay word meaning "Star"; perhaps alluding to the upmarket nature of this place.
The street is lined with up market shops, with plenty of buskers, stalls, drinking bars. Plenty of things to eat - mostly western fares. Be warned, prices are a bit high.
There is a shopping mall there called Lot 10. Its at the busiest corner and bright green in color so you cant miss it, even if you try. Head down to the lower ground for a nice surprise. There is a food court down there that sells food from "famous" hawkers. The way I heard it, a hawker only qualifies to operate a stall there if he/she has established a reputation as a popular eat.
I've tried several stalls there and so far, it is proving to be true....at least to my taste buds.
Give it a try!

Bintang Walk, or rather the myriad or streets and malls in the Bukit Bintang area of Kuala Lumpur assaults the sense with sounds, lights, colours and smells in a way that few westerners on their first trip to Asia will have seen before. Those with more experience will still find the unique Malaysian flavour entertaining to see.

There's so much in the area that you can't take it all in at once, malls large enough to get lost in for hours, streets of Hawker food stalls that become a throng of diners every evening, and hundreds of shops, bars, restaurants, and hotels in between.

Bintang Walk isn't really an attraction that you visit once, it's the ideal hub for your stay in Kuala Lumpur.

Its the shopping hub in KL. As the sun goes down, this area comes to life. Lots of street food and restaurants. You can a find a lot of restaurants serving Arabian and Lebanese food in this area. For shopping you will find high end stores as well as cheap stuff on the streets. Some good bars in this area. Overall, a nice place to spend your evening.
