Petaling Street

Entrance to Petaling Street from Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock.

The mobile police beat base is stationed here most days in the event you need any help.

The night market is popular not only among the locals but tourists as well.

A point to note is that many of the stalls are manned, not by local Malaysians, but by Bangladeshis, Myanmaris, Nepalis and etc.

Patrons come in all shapes, sizes and ages just like these two young shoppers seen here.

Fresh roasted local chestnuts.

Clogs (also known as wooded saddles) on display. I haven't used one of these in ages.

Venus Arts - about the only place where one could get art supplies in those days - still going strong.

Another old establishment along Petaling Street.

Many of the shop fronts are completely invisible due to the stalls set up along the street.

An old Chinese medical store.

I don't know what this is about as the night market has been around for as long as I can remember.

Street decoration??

Another decoration??

Entrance from Jalan Sultan.

Some of the shop-houses further along the street, away from the night market, are gaily painted to add to the varied colours seen here.
