Jalan Bukit Bintang... eat, shop and stay awhile...

One of the most popular KFC restaurants is in Bukit Bintang. It operates 24 hours a day.
City Hall's (DBKL) mobile office is often parked outside the restaurant.
Across the road from the restaurant is the BB Plaza, one of the more popular shopping destinations in KL.
UDA (Urban Development Authority) building adjoins the BB Plaza Complex.
The Selangor Foundation building is next door at the corner. Maybank, the largest local bank has a branch here.
'The Ship' restaurant which advertises as serving the 'best steak in town' is along Bukit Bintang.

Next door to BB Plaza, along Jalan Sultan Ismail, is the Sungei Wang Plaza Complex.

When inside the building, the only way to know when you have left one complex and gone into the other, is to look at the floor - they are different, color and design.

Across the road (Jalan Sultan Ismail) from Sungei Wang is the Park Royal Hotel. This hotel started as the Regent Kuala Lumpur.

The Lot 10 complex is also here.

As mentioned in my earlier post, there are many Middle-Eastern restaurants here.

Here's another one...

... and another one.

The Grand Millennium, which was also at one time the Regent Kuala Lumpur.

Many buildings which started as office complexes have been converted to cater to the changing times.
The KL Plaza, a residential cum shopping complex. The shopping has all but stopped here due to the stiff competition of the neighboring complexes.

It houses the popular Planet Hollywood.

The Marriott at Star Hill.

The Star Hill has evolved to serve an exclusive niche clientele.

The grand entrance to the Marriott.

The Westin is next door.

Menara Keck Seng is next door. This building is host to the Singapore Visitors Centre.
The Pavilion, among the latest of the mega complexes in KL.

The Pavilion stands at the site of the BBGS (Bukit Bintang Girls School). It is said that former students of BBGS are not to visit this complex and are to spit at it when they pass this way.

The golden bull that stands outside the Pavilion at the junction of Jalan Bukit Bintang and Jalan Raja Culan. It was to commemorate the year of the bull.

True or not, I cannot verify it one way or the other. However, I heard it from at least 3 different sources.
