5 hours to kill in Petaling Street – KL’s very own Chinatown

Chinatown (Petaling Street) is one of the must-visit place for foreigners and locals in Kuala Lumpur. Way back in the 1870s, Kapitan Yap Ah Loy, a Chinese headman and founding father of Kuala Lumpur, was said to have opened a tapioca mill on Petaling Street and so that is a little history on Petaling Street.

Petaling Street is a five minute walk away from the Pasar Seni LRT station. There are also plenty of taxis / grabcars/ uber cars that can take you to Petaling Street from anywhere in KL.
