At the heart of Kuala Lumpur is an area which never sleeps, and far more colourful and bustling than its bigger and more glamourous neighbours, KLCC & Bukit Bintang. Chinatown, based in Petaling Street, is also known as ‘Chee Cheong Kai’ (Starch Factory Street), a reference to its roots as a tapioca-producing district. When we mention Chinatown, usually we think of rows of Chinese restaurants and also shops selling very Chinese centric goods. Unfortunately in Chinatown KL, it resembles more of a flea market that peddles all kinds of goods including counterfeit branded goods.
