Jalan Alor Bukit Bintang

Planning a night of fun exploring lively bars and clubs? Changkat Bukit Bintang is the place to look out for. Bukit Bintang is the heart of tourist activities in Kuala Lumpur. The famous food street Jalan Alor is located in Bukit Bintang and is a must-visit location for food lovers. The food stalls and restaurants stay open until the early hours of the morning.

Feel the lively vibe of Kuala Lumpur, by walking down the streets of Changkat where lovely girls will approach you for a body massage in one of many parlours located along the road. Stalls of fresh tropical fruit and local delights are lined along the road. Meander through the street to reach the jam-packed shopping malls near Bukit Bintang LRT.

Jalan Alor the food street in Kuala Lumpur,  has a number of Thai and Malay and Chinese Restaurants specializing in seafood cooked in different styles. Popular restaurants are Wang Ah Wah Restaurant, San Cheui Yan and Hong Heng. I always enjoy grilled chicken wings served at 9 Jalan Alor. Another speciality on this spot includes satay chicken and satay beef on skewers served with delicious peanut sauce.

Foot reflexology and massage parlours are very popular in Bukit Bintang


Massage parlours are a popular attraction in Bukit Bintang. With a huge influx of tourists in this part of the town, Bukit Bintang is also notorious for "sex tourism". You can find a number of girls and ladyboys walking the street. The massage parlours, however, are popular with families and provide foot massage and all body massage services under RM 60 for an hour.
