There is something for everyone at Bukit Bintang. From budget hotels and malls with cheap goods of all kinds, near the area where Middle Easterners are taking root, to the typical middle class H&M and Zara outlets in smaller, smarter malls, all the way to the top end boutiques in the huge Pavilion complex and of course the elite shops...

One of my fav shopping and food destination in Asia. 5-6 major malls within walking distance. From branded to value shopping all around. Plus lots of food options. You won't need to go anywhere else

We stayed close to Bukit Bintang. It has excellent transport links to the rest of the city via the monorail. Plenty of shops and lots of places to eat too, along with the famous street food street jalan Alor. Lots of culture & a great atmosphere here. Certainly a good area to visit.

This is where you can do shopping and eat. if you are far from bukit bintang, take monorail from Kl sentral (or any other monorail station) and exit from bukit bintang station. Since there are many many options for shopping and eating you can wander there for hours. More crowded in the evening to night.

This district is a place to go for shopping. It's diverse from high end stores to cheap treats and souvenirs. And ofcourse, the perfect place to eat!!! You can find here the best local dishes at a very affordable price. Good place to hang out with friends at night and catch some drinks while munching some local street foods.

Love this area give you that Malaysian feel. Lots of food, shopping fruit, satay. In the heart of where it's all happening. The only complaint I'd have at the moment is the road works for the subway is taking a long time and takes away from the atmosphere. Enjoy your time
