Food Markets

by ozpaul

Could someone tell me where the most popular food markets, etc ate located in KL. We will be staying at Traders Hotel and would love to explore the wonderful food of this country in the evenings.

Chinatown is a great place to explore as there are fresh fruits and food stalls. In the evening, food stalls and tables are set up on the sidewalk and it's a great experience to eat on the street.

Hi

The Chinatown Markets are situated in Petaling Street- and very easy to get to.
The atmosphere is always very festive, especially at night-
Although there are food markets and stalls, which are good value, and there are various little restuarants where you can sit, sip and eat and people-watch- Chinatown is also a bargain shopping paradise. Be prepared to BARGAIN HARD- it is expected, and taken in good humour.

Here is page info of how to reach Petaling Street:

You could always try the stores at Jalan Alor. They serve a variety of fine Malaysian food there.

Happy Eating.

Re: Food Markets

by cochinjew

Traders Hotel itself is a fine hotel to stay and have some upscale cafes inside. It is very centrally located and you can walk to virtually hundreds of eating places. Jalan Alor seems to be popular with tourists and there are a variety of eating places. Malaysia especially KL is truly a eating persons paradise with excellent Chinese food and also Good South Indian food. You can also get Malay and INdonesian food easily. if you look through KL VT pages there are hundreds of suggestions for eating in KL and you will not be disappointed.

there was a free shuttle fr hotel to klcc. from there u can find several bar & restaurants they serve local food too within walking distance.

Re: Food Markets

by mayatravelthoughts

You could go to Kampung Bharu (means new village).If you do go there, take your camera along to snap some kampung houses that you may come across there. It's not too far from trader's hotel. You can take the lrt in klcc and stop at kampung baru. Taxis here may simply put a rate like RM10 although it is a RM4 ride.Good luck!

Travel Tips for Kuala Lumpur

A bit of KL; A bit of Kuala Selangor...

by shoestringbudget

Here's my Reply to whizforty's "Are we doing it right???".

Your fireflies tour will be at Kuala Selangor... abt 2hrs drive away fr. K.L. ... there's 2 there... one at Kampung Kuantan, one at Kampung Belimbing.

As for day 2... the attractions... u might wanna read up a little abt them fr the internet and c if they do interest u and if they r very out of town will they be worth the travelling time etc.. As for shopping... in KL... u'll need at the least 1 FULL day!!!! loads of malls at Bukit Bintang and a couple at Bandaraya... u'll need stamina i tell ya!

as for day 3
FRIM, if I'm not wrong is rather out of town... they have a website u can chk out... just get it fr a search engine... wonder if it's economical/convenient to reach it without a car... if u'r gonna get a cab u had better chk with FRIM how much will the ride to n fro cost approx... n if u shld go by the meter or pay a flat fee... alright.

I heard Mid Valley Mall offers free shuttle services fr. Kl... do do a search to its website n find out the times n pick up points!... heard it's HUUGE thus u might spend quite a lot of time there...

P.S.: Chinatown/Petaling St. night market... go only if u want to purchase Imitation Goods... and u'll probably have to bargain down the stated prices by 40-60%! Otherwise u can give it a miss i feel. nof offence to die-hard fans of Petaling St. :) Here's my Reply to whizforty's "Are we doing it right???".

Your fireflies tour will be at Kuala Selangor... abt 2hrs drive away fr. K.L. ... there's 2 there... one at Kampung Kuantan, one at Kampung Belimbing.

I went for the Kampung Belimbing and was amazed... I would recommend u to visit Taman Alam (Kuala Selangor's Nature Park) and take a walk up Bukit Melawati (these are nxt to each other at Kuala Selangor Town). say u reach at 1300... u'll end these at 1700 (including a 45min break at a cafe in the town itself)... then ask ur driver to drop u off at Pasir Penambang (famous to the city-folks of KL for its reasonably priced seafood!) for seafood dinner... try out River View Restoran!!! Butter prawns (s) + thai style long bean (s)+ seafood fried rice (for 2, big portion) cost me abt. RM33 only. DELICIOUS!! u can chk out the stalls selling dried seafood n stuff... the dried/crispy cuttlefish tidbits were delicious!! Apparently KL folks flock to these seafood restaurants on wkends... thus reaching there earlier would be a good idea... before 6pm shld b fine.

if possible get ur driver to pick u up at 1915 and head to Kg. Belimbing's fireflies tour (it's within the Firefly Park resort) @rm10 per adult n rm6 per child.
best time to see is at abt 8pm. without a full moon hopefully! (tho i had mine with a full moon... the effect of the litted insects were still significantly amazing!) :) ~30-45mins

after tht u can then return to KL... probably by 2300 i guess...

In addition:
Eye on M'sia... visited it 2 mths ago... quite a nice place to keep snapping pics... visit it at night to get the view of the litted Twin Towers... a cab ride from Bukit Bintang area to and fro shldn't cost more than RM15 each way. entrance fee is, if i don't remember wrongly, RM15 per adult.

The photo posted was taken at...

by poorguy

The photo posted was taken at one of the very rarely visited mountain in Kuala Lumpur. Bukit Tabor (Tabor Hill) is located in Taman Melawati just about 45 minutes driving from Kuala Lumpur town centre.
It is good for an about 6 hours activity, from 0630 in the morning till lunch time.
There are actually 7 peaks in a row. You will start at Bukit Mas just nearby the gate to the dam, and take about 4 hours to hiking continuously... and along the way, there are many good spots for taking photo. And you will not have to come back the same way again, but you can walk through an orchard, and come back to where you park your car. The hill is actually covered by crystal (Silicon) of various quality. If you are lucky, you can actually find some crystal of good quality as souvenir. Even though they are of small size, but you can find some qith high clearity.

Jalan Alor

by phil_uk_net

Just behind Bukit Bintang is Jalan Alor. It is probably the seediest, dirtiest part of KL, but worth a look. Along the sidewalk are lots of hawker stalls selling food, but not in the most hygienic of conditions. Busy Chinese and not so busy, dodgy-looking Africans mill around the area. There are cheap, seedy hotels - many of which offer daytime or hourly rates. Pimps loiter on street corners asking every passing male tourist if he wants a girl.

There is somewhat of a fascination about areas such as this but I would not recommend staying here.

What to wear - from a KL born gal

by s0rceress

I am a KL born. Let me give a true guide of what to wear. In KL, there are some areas where you should avoid wearing too skimpy or sexy e.g Mosques and temples(showing respects)Chow Kit area and Petaling Street(to avoid being harass). Please don't be misguided that we wear our clothes till high up our neck or something. There are alot of locals and foreigners wear mini-skirts,short pants, hot pants, sleeveless, tight pants, tube while shopping etc. Is OK because it is hot! But hopefully you wear your bra and not provocative shirts or else you would want people to stare at you. I really think with such humid and hot weather, wearing a bra is much comfortable, unless you want your clothes to stick to your body and revealing your.....you know what i mean.
