Welcome To Jalan Petaling
Jalan Petaling is a Chinatown that sells replica of luxury items. Most of those are Louis Vuitton and Chanel bags. I actually want to buy one but I am afraid that those designer company will sue me after finding out that I’m supporting imitation products. Haha 😀 Just kidding.
If Jalan Alor is well known as the Night Street Foodie Heaven, Jalan Petaling is famously known as a Chinatown Night Market. This place is truly a shopper’s haven. Like what I said earlier, you will find replica items of Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Michael Kors and many luxury items. If you ask anyone who’d been to Kuala Lumpur about best place to shop, I guarantee they’ll recommend this Chinatown. Although compare to well-known and more extravagant shopping center in KL like Bukit Bintang and Suria KLCC, (behind the Petronas Tower) Jalan Petaling remains the great option for shopping because aside from cheap items, the experience is definitely worth your time.
The whole area transforms into a lively and vibrant night market after dark, with hundreds of stalls selling all kinds of stuff at dirt-cheap prices, making it the most happening night market in the city. Therefore, Jalan Petaling Street is an interesting place to visit, both in day time and at night. In addition, you will also find restaurants and taste good food.
- Take care of your belongings. Be mindful to some pit-pocketers around since the market is overcrowded.
- Wear comfortable outfit. Avoid being flashy.
- Don’t be shy to bargain. If a price of a replica Louis Vuitton purse is 100 RM, try to bargain it at 10 RM. Trust me it will work.
