Good for cheap food and souvenirs and fake gear.

Easy to get to on the metro.

Easy to walk around and can be crowded at times.

It's okay.. just a bunch of junk to buy. During the day it is alive and full of people. Not too far from Central Market.. which I think is better if your looking for that type of shopping. But Bangkok's Chinatown is far more interesting and waaay better food!

Great markets that aren’t as dirty at Thailand. Most stores are nice and not to pushy. They actually sell decent copies with decent prices that are worth buying fake. Petaling Markets was unreal and the famous Central market was very clean and had some cool pieces.

Overall definitely something worth going to see whilst in KL.
