Kuala Lumpur,KL, Malaysia, Shopping, Asian food, bargains, restaurant

Kuala Lumpur (KL) is the capital city of Malaysia, a tropical South-East Asian country, neighbour to Singapore and Thailand. In KL city, you can find yourself being immersed in a paradise of tantalising local food, authentic Malaysian styled shopping and many many bargains…

The below listed is a guide for those who intend or plan to visit KL city in Malaysia.

Places to visit:

1. Bukit Bintang Area ( alight at Bukit Bintang Monarail Station)
i) Sungei Wang Shopping Centre: a local Malaysian Styled Shopping Centre (Pink Building)

Things to look out for at Sungei Wang include shoes at very attractive prices, trendy apparels, fashionable handbags, accessories, jewellery items, watches and food outlets…

Typically Malaysian in nature where you get yourself surrounded by shoppers. Lots of items to view- a pleasure to a shopper’s eye.

ii) Lot 10: Green building opposite Sungei Wang at the junction of Bukit Bintang and Jalan Sultan Ismail.

This place is ideal for shoppers who have an eye for the finer items.

iii) ‘The Ship’ Restaurant: Located along a row of shophouses, 2 units away from McDonalds at the cross junction of Bukit Bintang and Jalan Sultan Ismail; between McDonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC)

They serve western styled fresh seafood and sizzling beefsteaks… A must try is their oven Baked Escargots in Cream Sauce. An authentic western styled restaurant with internal décor theme of a ‘ship’. Very nice ambience and suitable for a romantic dinner with a ‘Valentine’.

iv) Secret Recipe Restaurant: Next to the ‘Ship’ Restaurant

They are famous for their award winning cheesecakes and dishes. My personal recommendation is their ‘Chocolate Indulgence’ Cake. A taste of its quality would tell you that the restaurant is the brainchild of a cake lover. Main Course to try include their Lamb Stew and Thai Styled Fried Rice, Pasta and others.

v) Open Air Hawker Food at along Bukit Bintang : by the whole inner stretch of road beside KFC. Note that they are only opened in the night.

Typical Asian Hawker Food to find here include:
- Barbeque Stingray fish, other types of fish, shellfish, squid , prawns and crab in local Sambal Chili Sauce
- Fried Oyster and egg
- Satay ( resembles kabub in a stick): choose between beef, chicken and mutton, to be eaten with satay sauce.
- Other local dishes like Fried Kway Tiao, Fried Hokkien Mee…
- Local Fruits eg Durian, Mango, Mangosteen, Coconut Juice- enjoy the uniqueness of eating by the road side.

Weekend Night Flee Market at Petaling Street: alight at Maharajalela Monorail Staton and take a short distance walk by the side of a Chinese Temple)

Bargain items to find here:
- Imitation Goods eg. Nike Shoes, T-shirts/Apparels, Gucci, LV, Chanel Bags, Rolex, Tag Heur Watches, Mont Blanc Pens and many more.

* Always ask for price and don’t agree at the price. Ask for further price reduction. The final purchase price agreed upon could be as much as more than 50% below the original quoted price. If not, pretend to walk away. You are likely to find another vendor that sells the same item down the street.

- Local Fruits/Drinks

* A must try is the Beef Noodle – at a stand-alone stall located at the corner of a coffee shop. If you are not sure where or cannot find, I suggest you ask the other Non Food Vendors. Ask them to show you where the famous Beef Noodle stall is located. You will be surprised to find that though they are just a simple roadside food vendor, the beef noodle they sell is simply delicious. Try the dry mee and it comes with a bowl of beef soup. A very unique style of noodle that is eaten together with a special formulated black beef sauce. You will not regret trying!

2. KLCC, Petronas Twin Tower: take train/ monorail to KLCC Station.

A mega shopping cum commercial centre. This is the place where you get to visit the tallest building in the world, the Petronas Twin Tower.

You get to find the latest fashion items/merchandise and fine restaurants too. Again, if you have an eye for the finer and more sophisticated items, this is the place you definitely have to visit.

Outside KLCC, if you have young kids, they will enjoy themselves at an open-air water theme playground with fanciful water works, fountains and water splashes. Please do not forget to prepare an extra set of clothing as children are bound to get wet here.

3. Berjaya Times Square: alight at Imbi Monorail Station

Known for its theme park within a major shopping mall. You will find yourself and kids in a theme park with its roller coastal tracks taking up 10 levels of air space in the mall. It is a source of great joy to the young and old. The young will like the roller coastal rides, game stalls and machines, flying spaceships, cinemas and many more… The latter will find themselves immersed in an interesting range shops and eateries selling merchandise like apparels, shoes, bags, watches to local as well as fine food outlets.

A Reliable Watch Dealer Worth to Look At

4. Local Food/ Coffeeshops along Jalan Imbi

Also well known as a food paradise for local food. A highly recommended must try is the ‘Bak Kut Teh’ (means Pork Ribs Soup in a local dialect). Very nice savoury Pork Ribs Soup!

5. Night Life along the stretch between Bukit Nanas and Raja Chulan Monorail Station, along Jalan Sultan Ismail.

You can find a cluster of pubs, clubs and discotheques. If you are finding nightlife within the heart of KL city, this would be a good place to visit. You are bound to experience something different and exciting. Be there to find out for yourself.

I personally enjoy the food and bargains that are found in the heart of KL city. Hope you will also find it an experience too!
