Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman


This was the 'grande dame' of KL shopping, in the days before modern shopping complexes took the KL metropolitan city by storm.
This stretch of road is flanked by pre-war buildings whose distinctive facades are preserved and re-adapted to accommodate modern retailing businesses. Here, you can walk through the archways of shops for an immersion into a shopping and cultural experience that goes back several decades to the days before modern shopping centres.
Many established names like GS Gill, P. Lal and PH Henry chose to remain when others moved out. The shops here offer a wide range of fabrics and textiles, imported leather goods, bags and luggage, carpets, sports goods and winter clothing.
Narrow alleys between the shops offer a fantastic range of clothing material at irresistible bargain prices. Other established names offer collections of silver and crystalware. The very modern Sogo Shopping Complex and Maju Junction Mall are also located along this stretch.
Every Saturday between 5.00 pm -10.00 pm, Lorong Tuanku Abdul Rahman is closed to traffic and transformed into a night market where petty traders and hawkers sell an assortment of goods in the open air.
The night market, or literally translated as "Pasar Malam" in the Malay language, offers you an interesting place to walk through and perhaps pick up some casual attire, local products, as well as sample some local delicacies. This experience is a feast for the senses.
