It took much time to move between KLCC and Bukit Bintang before, but now it has become more convenient since the walkway was developed three years ago.

View from Bukit Bintang Station

There is Bukit Bintang Station on the KL monorail and I took several photos there to capture landscape of the city. Kuala Lumpur has already become a big city, but I feel a kind of chaotic atmosphere just like other cities in Southeast Asia.Bukit Bintang City view1

So, that’s it for the article about Bukit Bintang, including Jalan Alor food street. I have been to Bukit Bintang several times before, but whenever I visit there, I find out something new. If you would like to feel the latest trend in Malaysia, Bukit Bintang should be a must-go place 🙂

On day 1 and 2, I stayed at Kuala Lumpur. On day 3 and 4, I stayed at Penang. From the next article, I will write several articles regarding Penang.
