AboutChinatown, Jalan Petaling and nearby streets - Known as Chi-Chong-Kai (translated as Tapioca Factory Street due to its origins) to the local Chinese. Lots of food and souvenirs stalls here. A mosque known as Masjid Jamek is at walking distance. (Star LRT: Plaza Rakyat or PUTRA LRT: Pasar Seni). Prices are sometimes exorbitant. Haggle furiously. Local vendors in the shopping district can be extremely aggressive to couples and women, yelling and calling them names. Restaurant customers on Jalan Petaling can be treated with shocking disrespect.
