Crowed on weekends with local Indians and Expats going about their weekly shopping. Festive time like Diwali give you some noise and pomp. Food is strictly average and there would be... More

I quite liked it here it was so colourful 1000s of sari's Bollywood jewlery etc. Haggle for a price you want it's quite touristy so they up the prices don't get done!! It's easy to reach from central KL and easy to walk around it's just a street.

A huge variety of beautiful fabrics and clothes - lovely silks too. Several tailors will make your clothes, in review time and very cheaply. Great restaurants too!

Travelled to Little India on the mono rail which is a very cheap way to get there. It also allows you to have a bit of retail therapy as the stations are mostly connected to stations. Little India was very quite and not at all as it was billed. Seemed a bit run down to me

If you like taking on local culture this area is worth the visit. Walking the streets you can sample food/drink, shop like a local and feel safe in the environment.

It's more like Little Chennai than Little India. You have a variety of shops to buy Indian goods. The restaurants could do with more cleanliness.
