Bintang Walk, Kuala Lumpur
Nestled within Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle, the Bukit Bintang district begins with Jalan Bukit Bintang which starts at Jalan Raja Chulan and ends at Pudu Road.
The area has long been Kuala Lumpur’s most prominent retail belt that is home to many landmark shopping centres, al-fresco cafés, swanky bars, night markets, as well as hawker-type eateries. This area is popular among tourists and locals, especially among the youths. A part of Bintang Walk is designated as an “Arab Street”.
Bukit Bintang is one of the city’s shopping districts. Many of the city’s major retail malls are located in this area, including Berjaya Times Square, Bukit Bintang Plaza, Imbi Plaza, Fahrenheit 88 (refurbished, previously known as KL Plaza)Low Yat Plaza, Starhill Gallery, Sungei Wang Plaza, Lot 10 and Pavilion KL.
Restaurants dedicated to Arabian gastronomy have been sprouting along the core of the Bintang Walk of late as a result of a recent general initiative to lure Arab tourists to this region. Popular Maghreb and Lebanese alongside Iranian delicacies are increasingly served by restaurants. However, there are still plenty of trendy and chic restaurants catering to international fare, especially in the BB park area.
Bintang Walk is accessible via Bukit Bintang Monorail station, which is located at the intersection of Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Bukit Bintang.
