Busy area of Kuala Lumpur. High rise shopping centres. There are some great cafes here - there is an indoor cafe near Sephora which I recommend. The food court is pretty good, with a wide variety of cuisines available. Pretty good for shopping including clothes shopping. A must-see in KL.

A famous street at the golden triangle of KL, has a nick name of "Arab Street" since a lot of Arabs has shops, restaurants and offices over there. After KL malls close at 10 pm, this street become the destination for tourists or those who are looking for nightlife; shops, restaurants, cafes, massage places and more keep open for late... More

The vibrant, beating heart of Kuala Lumpur has to be found in the bustling streets and alleys of Bukit Bintang. Ask anyone who has ever been to KL where to go and number one on their list has to be this area. Whatever you want, you will probably find here whether it is somewhere to stay, to eat, to relax,...

This neighbourhood is bustling at night! Whether it is 8pm or 3am there's so many people! The food street is probably our favourite spot in KL - we spent a lot of time here. There's a really good bar scene too.

Heart of KL, where quite a few major shopping malls congregated (Pavilion, Lot 10, Starhill, Fahrenheit, Sg Wang, Bukit Bintang plaza). Very busy road, but seems to be overrun by foreign nationals especially those from middle-east. May change to be Chinese soon.

Bukit Bintang can fairly be hailed as the pub-hoppers paradise as within 2 km of streets there are at least 20-25 pubs, bars, lounges and discotheques. So, if you're backpacking around KL or there for a business trip, Bukit Bintang is the place to visit if you want to have a nice evening with some booze and dance! Do visit... More
