Welcome to Kuala Lumpurs Bintang Walk

By:

A good way to scout the Malaysian scene would be to explore a well-known area in Kuala Lumpur called Bintang Walk. It is located on Jalan Bukit Bintang and is part of the Golden Triangle; a place well-known for its long stretch of shops, hotels and good food. The Golden Triangle is generally divided into two areas; Bukit Bintang and KLCC. While KLCC caters more towards the higher-than-average tastes, Bukit Bintang is more down-to-earth and friendly to all.

Accommodation can be found here at hotels rated from three to five stars. A few examples to state would be the Allson Genesis Hotel, JW Marriot Hotel and The Westin. The Allson Genesis Hotel offers comfortable deluxe rooms equipped with in-house international television channels; whereas the JW Marriot Hotel and The Westin present to travellers a corporate yet luxurious stay, complete with five-star treatment and easy accessibility to office facilities.

When it comes to the shopper’s paradise, Bukit Bintang has it all. Visit Starhill Gallery for all things branded and of higher quality, and do not forget to make a stop on the 4 th floor where you can drink in the beauty of art in the form of paintings and sculptures by Malaysian artists! Surrounding malls like Sungei Wang Plaza, BB Plaza and Low Yat Plaza has more clothing, footwear, electrical gadgets and many more items at less pricey bargains! Since you’re within the vicinity, visit Berjaya Times Square and Lot 10 Shopping Centre too to fulfill your many other shopping and entertainment needs.

In recent years, more and more F&B outlets have sprung up around Bukit Bintang. Yearning for good western or eastern cuisine? Go over to Shook! restaurant for posh dining and celebrity-spotting on the ground floor of Starhill Gallery. Starbucks Coffee, Delifrance, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf are a few thirst-quenching sit-outs when you need a long-awaited rest! Name a few just off the top of your head and you have it. Fast-food outlets like KFC, McDonald’s and Pizza Hut are all-time favourites amongst visitors …especially the youngsters. For those who are adventurous enough to try out some local delights, do take a walk down Jalan Ipoh; a tourist attraction and food haven packed with really delicious local delights to seduce your palate with. Take your pick and tuck in to a guaranteed hearty feast!

After dinner, make a pit stop at Bukit Bintang Plaza, tune in to local street musicians performing cool music ranging from acid jazz to traditional Malaysian tunes like dangdut (traditional Malay folk music) and gamelan (an orchestra of percussion instruments). Lucky patrons at these performances will get a chance to join these fun-loving musicians learn how to play the instruments!

Bukit Bintang has plenty to offer tourists; even local visitors repeatedly come back to this food cum shopping district to just have a jolly good time! Apart from the normal mode of transportation which is cabs; another way for you to investigate the many sights without driving would be to hop into the KL Monorail. Just get off at the Bukit Bintang stop and get started on observing our quirky Malaysian culture!
