For both shopaholics and coffee-sipping night owls, Bukit Bintang is one of the hippest streets in the city. It’s a perfect place for people-watching over a latte between bouts of bargain-hunting.
A wide pedestrian walkway running the length of the street has transformed it into an exciting rendezvous point with open air cafes and restaurants.
The many shopping centres along Bukit Bintang ensure that you will never run out of options.
All the stores are open by 11am and only shut around 10pm.
How to get there
By Foot or Taxi
The liveliest part of Jalan Bukit Bintang crosses Jalan Sultan Ismail. When taking a taxi, a good drop off point would be Star Hill Plaza, then you could walk all the way down the street to Low Yatt Plaza.
There is a Monorail station called Bukit Bintang that is in between Lot 10 Shopping Centre and Sungai Wang Shopping Centre. The Monorail line is connected to the LRT line at several stations.
Kuala Lumpur offers a full range of accommodation, from basic backpacker’s hostels to 5-star hotels.
