    Simply just toooo much choice.

    Main meals, snacks, deserts, fruits the list just goes on.
    We started with a few snacks - recommend Wagu beef skewers to start. Lovely and light

    Headed over to a restaurant serving local malay cuisine - the best

    finished off with cups of cut fruit, ice cream and mini cakes.

    Only to repeat our trip a few times during our stay trying different foods.

    I would say that Brickfields is one of the more interesting Little India that I have visited, in relative to the ones I have seen in Singapore for instance. It is bustling with vibrant shops!

    Nonetheless, it is not an essential stop while you are in KL. And compared to the real India, it is rather so-so. Still worth a visit if you have extra time though!

    An air conditioned walkway linking the Pavilion with KLCC. It makes the journey walkable in the extreme heat but it’s not as cool as you might expect. I’m a regular user and without it I would never shop at KLCC!

    I went in the morning before food stalls were open so can’t rate a restaurant but did try a couple tasty nibbles from within the neighborhood as well as an avacado chocolate shake on my way out. My interest is seeing and feeling the life of older traditional neighborhoods, walking among the people who live in the houses built by forebears. There are many traditional homes improved as generations passed or not so, people who lived within this community for generations. I stopped to draw, stood back as a sea of traditionally dressed men left their worship at a neighborhood mosque, walked down this street and that. In doing so I was greeted by several people, treated to heartfelt conversation by several more. This endangered neighborhood deserves to be preserved if for no other reason than to show what life was like before KL was swallowed by urban renewal.

    This is a good place to visit for food and getaway. There is a beautiful park around the lake which is perfect for a stroll. The park is busy with joggers, runners, strollers and those walking the dog. It is just next to the park commercial Centre with all the nice shops and eateries. Food served are of quality.

    it was once a village solely for the chinese community but now it has transformed to a residential area. they were forced to be isolated in those days. now you get proper roads and electricity. not much of an attraction but it is part of our history.
