About Petaling Street Market In Kuala Lumpur
Petaling Street Market is an extremely famous and one of the most crowded streets in Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur. The market is jam-packed with food stalls, shops, and clubs where tourists can easily spend an entire day without even realizing when it went by. During the Selangor Civil War, a Chinese influencer named Yap Ah Loy opened a Tapioca Mill Factory to persuade the Chinese to stay. Even currently, the Petaling Street Chinatown is called ‘Chee Cheong Kai’ which means ‘Starch Factory Street.’ After that, the street has improved immensely, making it a must-visit destination in Kuala Lumpur.
Petaling Street Food is not to be missed. One will find almost every single cuisine available there, piping hot and ready to eat. It is quite famous for its seafood, but the salted roast duck is the most popular choice and, many times, it gets over before the day even starts. Even though the shops close early, Petaling Street Night Market is open with many food stalls which are especially open in the evening and stay open till late in the night. Apart from the Petaling Street Food, shopping is the main attraction and reason to visit. Instead of the question of what to buy in Petaling Street, one will be asking what should not be bought. Petaling Street Market is extremely famous for its knockoffs. One will get a fake of anything and everything from Louis Vuitton to Rolex watches- all one needs to do is haggle a little, and the item will be available at low prices. There is something for everyone; tourists can find clothes, shoes, bags, watches, toys and even the latest movies at a low price.
