The China Town Night Market. It was fabulous! We had a great dinner here from a hawker stall selling chicken noodle soup and it was delicious and a bargin at about 50 pence! Later we bought some strange sweet, BBQd pork sliced things which were a bit strange but quite addictive! We also got some lovely juicy mangos to munch! Apart from cheap eating it is a facinating place to wander round seeing sellers stalls selling everything possible to eat and drink, and also lots of fake sunglasses! I got a great pair of fake Gucci sunglasses (only ever buy fake becuase I lose them every year!) for about £2 - although the name of the game here is to barter with them and then finally to pretend to walk to another stall and the price will suddenly half! At first I felt a bit bad as the price was fairly cheap anyway, but then i realised that if you don't barter they seem disappointed and some sellers actually tell you to barter! They love it - and I did once I got the hang of it. It's great fun.
Petaling Street >
The center of Kuala Lumpur's original Chinatown. Petaling Street maintains much of its traditional atmosphere, particularly at night when vendors spread their wares out on the street. While it is possible to purchase anything from gems and incense to toys and t-shirts here, enjoying the night market is really a matter of just wandering about and enjoying its sights, sounds, and energy.
