NOTE: as the blog title suggests, I mainly write about my travel around Japan, but I will write about my overseas travel in this series.
Moved to Bukit Bintang from KLCC area where I stayed in the previous article.
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.
Shopping mall hopping in Bukit Bintang
Bukit Bintang is the most largest shopping and entertainment district in Kuala Lumpur and there are wide range of shopping malls from luxurious ones to local-oriented one. So, I went around these shopping malls.
First, PAVILION, which has the largest floor spaces in Bukit Bintang.
There was “Tokyo Street” on level 6.
STARHILL GALLERY, which has many luxurious brand stores.
Fahrenheit 88, which has a Uniqlo shop (only building).
Lot 10, which is primary for young people (only building).
Sungei Wang Plaza, which is local-oriented.
Finally, Berjaya Times Square, which includes a hotel (only hotel).
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.
Jalan Alor Food Street
Jalan Alor in Bukit Bintang is the largest food street in Kuala Lumpur. Most of the hawker stalls open from evening and many people, both locals and tourists, gather in the evening.
There were live performances.
I had a dinner at Restaurant Wong Ah Wah.
It looks like a world-famous character, doesn’t it?
Anyway, there were lots of visitors there.
I ordered Chicken wing, shrimps and Hokkien mee noodles.
Night view in Bukit Bintang
I left Jalan Alor and returned to the central area near Bukit Bintang station. I strolled around the area and took several photos.
Street in front of Lot 10.
Bukit Bintang station with Air Asia’s signboard.
It looks like a futuristic city, doesn’t it?
The last photos was takes at PAVILION.
Then, I returned to the hotel.
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.
Sungei Wang Plaza
Berjaya Times Square
