At the heart of Kuala Lumpur
street scene around Bukit Bintang
Bukit Bintang is the main shopping and Hotels area including the nearby Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Raja Chulan, and the older residential part of Jalan Imbi. In Jalan Imbi you can probably find some really nice and cheap local food with it’s many shophouses and kopitiam (local cafe) and a wet market too.
With the ongoing construction of MRT right in the middle of Jalan Bukit Bintang, this area is even more congested during peak hours. Its best to take the monorail or walk if you want to explore the few roads around this area. When you have enough of walking to the heat, just pop into the many malls around here for a late and cool air-con.
In the daytime this area is pretty safe to walk about but try to avoid the dark lanes behind shophouses at night.
