China Town – Petaling Street


Had head about this place ever since I stepped foot on Kuala Lumpur. Chinatown’s biggest attractions is perhaps the rows and rows of stalls selling all types of merchandise from food to clothing at bargain able prices.Great opportunities to try your bartering skills.If you are into low quality merchandise like fake sunglasses, watches, bags and jeans it’s going to be a paradise for you! it’s a good place to buy souvenirs and Chinese antiques. I went there only for the atmosphere. For me it was a sightseeing more than a shopping place(though I do not refuse that I did pick up some souvenirs too…. well you can’t blame a girl for shopping, can you? ). Its a bustling kaleidoscope of food stalls, merchandise traders and novelty stalls.It is a quintessential Chinatown with the crowds, noise, smells, sights, etc. Such things may be off-putting to some but they are the reason we world travel — to immerse ourselves in such experiences! But look further and you will find that there’s more to Chinatown than fake branded goods. Just around the corner from this paradise of bargains are temples that have been around for more than a century.

A software engineer by profession and a traveler and foodie by heart. Having traveled ever since childhood it has become a part of me now. So when ever I happen to get a chance I pack my bag and am on the roads. Being blessed with a super tolerant husband who gives into my whim of traveling, we do spend most of our savings on it. Well I do not exactly regret and neither does my husband complain.. Cooking is something I started doing after I left home for job. To be frank I was not such a cook when I started but years down the line I did start enjoying cooking. Picking up recipes from around the world is one of my passion though being a true at heart Bengali, I still love cooking Bengali food.
