This is the area you'll find a huge variety of shopping malls and restaurants. Bukit Bintang is busy, bustling and the place the visit if you want to shop. There are quite a few hotels in the area but we stayed further out as it was a bit too busy for us as a base to stay. Easy to get... More

We stayed in Bukit Bintang which was an excellent area to stay because it was close to so many great restaurants and to several malls. The monorail station was a bit hard to access because of roadwork, but soon as that is finished it should be easier to access. Great area and we highly recommend it.

At one time well-noted for shopping, entertainment and food, but it has now been overshadowed by other parts of Kuala Lumpur. Still worth a trip for luxury items. Good place to explore and who knows you might find something interesting to purchase.

I had never really explored this area much despite many trips to Kuala Lumpur. I found it to be really just a center for tourists. Some large shopping malls and eateries, mostly Western style. I prefer to stay away from the hustle and bustle of tourist activities myself. It is good if you just want to stay in one area... More
