KL in the eyes of a local -

Amazing city of hidden treasures

If you’re a visitor in Malaysia, you have to try the rich variety of foods available here. We take our foods very seriously, and it has become an integral part of our culture and lifestyle. The city is packed with roadside stalls, called ‘mamak’ stalls. These small stalls have become a hit among locals, serving delicious concoctions like fried noodles and Malaysian styled iced tea.

 

Hosting a lot of hawker stalls and seafood restaurants, Jalan Alor is one of the most famous roads in Kuala Lumpur for food. Located just behind Jalan Bukit Bintang and a short walk away from Changkat Bukit Bintang, it is a favourite after-clubbing dining spot in the Golden Triangle area.  The whole character of the city changes when you step onto the street. Gone are the modern shopping malls that align the city, which are replaced by something of the past age. During the day, there is not much activity but when the sun goes down, the street will be hustling and bustling with activity, a truly memorable place.

 

Whatever foods you might fancy, the variety of eateries in the city will satisfy your appetite, serving simple and quick meals that are simply irresistible.

 

For you shopaholics, Central Market in KL will leave you spoilt for choice with the wide array of clothing and accessories in store. Experience a new environment of shopping, where customers bargain with shopkeepers to obtain the best price on items purchased.(A local secret, u can never go low enough for items purchased, so keep bargaining till u cant bargain no more!)
