Although a visit to the towers is pretty much mandatory - I wanted to see some market life too. My time in KL was limited, but I managed to find time to explore Chinatown's Petaling Street.
I have to confess that these market stalls didn't excite me too much.
But the area had quite a vibe and seemed popular with the tourists.
Although there were plenty of locals too.
Ultimately I became more interested in the clash of old and new architecture than the market stalls.
Back near my hotel, close to the Petronas Towers, this covered eating area was full of locals with not a tourist in sight (which is a good indication of authentic food). I adore eating in simple eateries with the locals. People are almost always surprised and delighted when foreigners choose to eat in their establishments. It was a good decision because the unpretentious service was great and the food was utterly delicious!
I should have time to squeeze in one more post next week before I go on my travels in December.
