Little India night market

On Saturday nights, from sundown until around 10pm, the alley east of Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman transforms from a modest silk shopping district into a bustling Malay pasar malam (night market). About 1km in length, the market is packed with all sorts of Malay cuisine specialties, many of which are surprisingly hard to find in Kuala Lumpur the rest of the time.

You can also buy cheap T-shirts and other goods, but it's the food that really stands out. The stall operators are very friendly, and usually happy to talk you through their offerings or even entice you with some free samples. But even if you don't eat anything, the sights, sounds, and smells make it the experience well worthwhile.

Getting there

Take the LRT to Masjid Jamek station and follow the crowds. Also in easy walking distance from Chinatown.

I agree with most of your points, however some need to be discussed further, I will hold a small talk with my buddies and perhaps I will look for you some advice soon.
