Chinatown Review

During the mornings in KL's thriving Chinatown, florists go about their business, but come late afternoon, vendors get busy setting up their wares for the evening crowds. This neighborhood, sandwiched between Jalan Hang Kasturi and Jalan Sultan, has things to see both before and after dark. The Taoist Sze Ya Temple and Hindu Sri Mahamariamman Temple both deserve a visit. You can pick up souvenirs like watches, sunglasses, and T-shirts in the market, but know that this is where your haggling skills will be put to the test; bartering down to a third off the offered price is a good rule of thumb. The Central Market is also filled with local food and tropical juice stalls—handy when you're feeling peckish.
