Chow Kit District Tips (9)

Chow Kit

the Chow Kit is purpotedly the red light district of Kuala Lumpur and the place is almost seedy at night with lots of small alleys which are dark and a big wet market near the Chow Kit Monorail Station. This was where our hotel was located as our travel agent mistakenly told us that the Grand Central Hotel was a 4 star one (really now?). In the area are numerous hole in the wall hawker food stalls which were really good. It also features a night market also known as Bundle Chow Kit along Lorong Haji Taib which is known for the sale of used clothings and accessories.

Open air market - Chow kit

First attraction is the market, with abondance of stalls. Vendors here sell quite all, form fresh vegetables to clothes and shoes.
Chow Kit (during the day) is a colorful place where you could enjoy a "local" immersion. It's not a hot spot for tourists, in my view, at least during the day...
It's local, don't expect a "clean western shoping center", so, you could be embarrassed by smells
Buildings are quite old, population seems to be Indonesian (?), a clear different identity compared to tourist hot spots.

It is well known also to be the (or one of the) red light district (girls and drugs), but this was not visible for me at that time.

Chow Kit district

I remembered I came here many times in the early 90s to watch some movies with my college friends, now it looked different, probably peoples prefer to watch movies in modern cinemas in KLCC and Megamall kind of places. The place is for restaurant now I guessed, not so sure?

Chow Kit district

Chow Kit district has a convenient LRT station, visitors can easily drop by to look around. The place has a big shopping centre named The Mall or Putra Place and then if you walk the opposite direction, its the Chow Kit district, good to visit during night time.

Chow Kit district (Raja Laut Road)

Chow Kit district is a must see location for any visitors especially at night, don't go in day time, day time is a totally different place but when night comes, its another type of place, tourists should spend some time explore the place but careful, lots of touts.

Chow Kit district

I personally seldom come to Chow Kit districts, only for taking photos, its very colorful to me because of many foreign faces. The place is good to visit night time, but I can't say anything.
