Join me for a walk through Petaling Street.
Anybody visiting Kuala Lumpur will be encouraged to visit Petaling Street or China Town, as it is referred to. It is a haven for shoppers to procure cheap and fun gifts in fact even if you don't buy anything it is a great place to wander around.

There is the most amazing atmosphere as the vendors call out and invite you to check their wares.
It is a bargainers delight as you try to beat the price right down. The vendors sell any and everything.
You can buy imitation goods of most well known brands including Prada, Gucci, Rolex, Calvin Klein etc.
Food is an essential part of any market experience but more especially in Malaysia as the people of Malaysia and the visitors to Malaysia, LOVE to eat!! There are many restaurants tucked away behind the stalls selling a wide variety of foodstuff. Vendors too have a great deal on offer.
|Sweet pork Bao|
One of my favourites is Bao....a soft steamed bun
filled with sweet pork!!
|Sweet potato snacks|
|Anyone for porridge.|
|Rambotan (a hairy fruit)|
|Mangosteens (tastes like a lychee.|
|These are just a few of the wonderful fruits which are unique to Malaysia and surrounding Asian countries.|
It is something one HATES or LOVES!!
According to Wikipedia, British novelist Anthony Burgess writes that eating durian is "like eating sweet raspberry in the lavatory."
Anthony Bourdain, a lover of durian says your breath will smell as if you'd been French kissing your dead grandmother!!
I was most interested in buying a few DVD's which cost ten Ringitt ( about twenty five rand) but I was unable to find the ones I wanted, but I will be going back soon again and maybe I will get them then.
