  • AVOID AT ALL COST NOI THAI SEAFOOD REST SCAMMERS!!

    by mssindian Written May 21, 2015

    A seafood restaurant called NOI THAILAND on Jalan Alor in Bukit Bintang District must be avoided at all cost. The place has no running water and food preparation is very unhygienic and filthy. The place is on a street and has no access to clean water. Food preparers in the back seems to don't care if the food they prepare is edible enough not to cause any health problem. The major problem is when we asked for the check. We got the shock of our life when the price on the check doesn't match the price on their menu. We can not argue, as we were immediately men who are ready to pounce on us. We will definitely not come back to this place and will tell family members, friends and everyone about our very unpleasant experience. Save your money, go to the cleaner stalls in the food courts.

    Jalan Bukit Bintang (West) is a tourist pedestrian street line with palm trees, hotels, massage parlors, restaurants, boutiques, and etc. There are several old restored shop houses worth looking at, for example the Bintang Warisan Building. There are two nice hotels on this street worth trying, the The Federal and The Royal Bintang. Both hotels are unique local four stars hotels on this street.

    It is a short walk to Jalan Alor, BB Plaza, Low Yat IT Mall, Sungai Wang. On the east side of the streets are those up scales shopping malls and hotels.

    Air-conditioned KLCC-Bukit Bintang Walkway

    by cal6060 Updated Sep 10, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    KLCC-Bukit Bintang Walkway was officially opened to the public in Feb 2012. It is a fully air-conditioned pedestrian walkway link between KLCC Convention Centre, Petronas Twin Tower to Pavilion Mall, Bukit Bintang. With the bridge, locals and tourists can avoid the heat of walking on regular streets. People often drive and take the taxi traveling between these two places. This bridge could help to reduce the traffic jam too.

    It has 562 meter long and 5 meter wide. Along the walkway, there are several exit and entry points. One of the exit points links to Raja Chulan Monorail.

    Based on newspaper article, this bridge is built by Petronas (Malaysia Gas Company) as part of its social contribution program. It costs RM100 million to have the bridge built. Why is it so expensive?

    Warning: Malaysia often has problem to maintain its public facilities. A bridge with fully air-conditioned could easily turn into a steamy walkway. If you encounter the malfunction of its air conditioning in terrible conditions, you should avoid the walk on this bridge.

    Bukit Bintang AKA Arab Street

    by HebaM Updated Aug 24, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I love Bukit Bintang at night very live with lots of things to do, lots of restaurants, coffee shops, street painters and street performers.
    if you are bored at night and have nothing to do just go for a stroll in Bukit Bintang it's very safe at night even for solo female traveler.
    if you want to go shopping you'll find more than 5 Shopping Malls in the same square and many many stores.
    Sadly, The area has lost its character lately after being raided by Middle Eastern people...they turned it into a Small Middle Eastern country :( with all the Arabic restaurants with loud Arabic pop music! I also noticed newly open many suspicious massage parlors that reminded me of Bangkok. and lady boys/prostitutes standing at every corner and in front of hotels. pitty

    Super Star of Bukit Bintang During the day!

    Bukit Bintang is a district in Kuala Lumpur and will form the center within the center of the metropolis of Kuala Lumpur. The center of Kuala Lumpur is also called the Golden Triangle. The Bukit Bintang area falls within there again. Bukit Bintang (also known Bintang Walk) is a long street with shopping malls, restaurants, bars and small shops. It is almost 24 hours a day attractively. In the evening it is a place where the locals are out shopping or to hang. After most malls at 22.00 to close their doors, everyone goes to the many bars and eateries. Bintang Walk is actually between Lowyat Plaza and Pavilion in KL. The busiest stretch of Bukit Bintang is the crossroads where the busy streets Jalan Bukit Bintang and Jalan Sultan Ismail intersection. At that intersection are the malls Lot10, BB Plaza and also the large Maybank (bank with ATM), the McDonald's and the monorail station Bukit Bintang. Near Lot10 you have a boarding location of the Kuala Lumpur Hop-on, hop-off city tour.

    Main Shopping Area of Kuala Lumpur

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Since we are on a short 2 day hop around kuala lumpur before proceeding ti the genting hihlands, we must have to go here and experience the atmosphere of Bukit Bintang and it doesn't disappoint as it has lot and lots of depertment stores and stalls and even has a shopping walk called the Bintan Walk. Many malls are located in this area, including Berjaya Times Square, Bukit Bintang Plaza, Imbi Plaza, Fahrenheit 88 (refurbished, previously known as KL Plaza) Low Yat Plaza, Starhill Gallery, Sungei Wang Plaza, Lot 10 and Pavilion KL. too bad that we havent have time to see Berjaya Times Square but at least we have some Malaysian food at one of the food stalls in Bintang Walk. Shops here open at 10:00 am and closes at 10:00 pm. Nearest Monorail is the Bukit Bintang and Imbi Stations (the Berjaya Times Square is near Imbi Station)

    Bukit Bintang is the Star !

    by Chyan Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Bukit Bintang has many Indochinese restaurants. It is the Little Indochina of KUL, without any gangsterism.

    Bukit Bintang is the site of many budget hotels that cater to backpackers traveling by Air Asia, Aeroline and other coach services. The cheapest and cleanest budget hotel is The Green Hut, a lodge-like budget hotel establishment, followed by the Comfort Inn and Comfort Lodge nearby.

    From the budget hotels, one can virtually visit all important shopping centres such as Times Square (the second largest, named after The New York Times), and buildings with very high concentration of airline and travel agency offices, such as Angkasa Raya and Central Plaza.

    Here, one can easily find important overseas tourist information that one cannot get from travel agents and airline offices in Singapore, because these offices are under-visited. These buildings have permanent, exterior, giant signboards that identify the syarikat-syarikat penenbangan (corporate offices) of airlines that fly or suspend flights to Kuala Lumpur, in the midst of philosophical slogans about peace and justice of Malaysians that appear on the city buses or on lamp posts.

    Shops,Satay & Seafood

    by NomadicWorld Written Sep 27, 2010

    The bukit bintang area seems to be the centre of KL for shopping and dining.

    As i didn't do any shopping there i can only comment on the food. There is a street there which is full of cheap cafe's and street stalls. The food is amazing whether it be snacking on a couple of satay sticks or something a bit more exotic. I tried the crab and it was just devine.

    The street is busy every night of the week and the prices are excellently low. Alcohol will set you back a bit but that's malaysia these days.

  • Living the tourist life in Bukit Bintang

    by Freeekout Written Apr 21, 2010

    Goodness, you're in the heart of nightlife action in Kuala Lumpur man. Along Changkat Bukit Bintang you'll find plenty of restaurants offering international stuff (El Cerdo for Spanish food the Social for contemporary English stuff, Finnegan's Pub for Irish stuff, Frangipani for more upscale dining) And then there's Jalan Alor with tons of hawker stalls if you're on a shoestring budget or simply prefer unpretentious dining with the locals.

    Dance clubs and pubs also abound along Changkat Bukit Bintang with action going on up to 2am in the morning so I think you won't be bored.

    But I was just wondering, how would you feel about taking a walking historic tour of Kuala Lumpur?

    Jalan Alor is a perfect place to dine out after going through the malls of Bukit Bintang. It is jampacked with tourists seeking delectable dishes. This food street is lined up with eateries calling out for customers & it is very competitive. Serves wide array of delicious meals. Don't forget to try the yummy durian fruit after your meal. Price can be higher here as it is a touristy place.

    Bukit Bintang is another must

    by SLLiew Written Nov 4, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bukit Bintang (in Malay means "Star Hill") has been an important major shopping and entertaining street of old Kuala Lumpur.

    Today, the old cinemas are gone but there are high end shopping malls at one end and a lot of foot reflexology shops, budget accommodation as welll a parallel street "Jalan Alor" which is famous for KL street food.

    Bukit Bintang is busy and you can feel the heart-throb of KL here. Unfortunately, it is an area which can have traffic jam during the peak hour. So the LRT is a good way to get here. Possible to walk all the way from Pudu Bus Station and all along Jalan Bukit Bintang until Lot 10 area - a good 20 minutes but great way to see KL.
