Looking for bargains?
Are you looking for real bargains, you will find traditional stores along Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and Petaling Street in Chinatown. In the evening you can return to Chinatown when traders spread out their wares along the street and buy inexpensive souvenirs.
In the malls and most shops there are no bargaining (except at markets), but sometimes you can be offered if you are a group that make bulk buys or pay with cash.
