Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur
Try the market at Petaling Street, Chinatown for cheap goods like sunglasses, clothes, bags, belts, hats, etc, etc. Bargain hard.
What to buy: Lots to buy.
What to pay: Bargain!!!!
Petaling st by day is nowhere as vibrant as by night, but there is still plenty to do see do and buy.
Worth a visit
What to pay: Haggle
What to buy:
hundreds of stalls many almost identical sell imitation handbags, sunglasses, crafts, hats, t-shirts, you name it they have it.
What to pay: always offer less than the amount asked. never buy on the first stalls.
Also described in nightlife. This street of stalls is a must for anyone.
I loved the feeling of bartering, being out at night and even the sudden downpour.
