Bukit Bintang or Star hill and the Pavilion

Bukit Bintang(literally means “Star hill”) is the name of shopping and entertainment district of central Kuala Lumpur known as the Golden triangle area. The CNN ranked this area world’s 4th best place for shopping and I couldn’t agree more.

To get here, a 15 mins mono-rail ride(RM2.10) from the KL Sentral station is a hassle-free way.

Sungei Wang Plaza, Lot 10, Fahrenheit 88 Mall, BB Plaza, Imbi Plaza, Sephora store and the marvelous Pavilion. You dream it and it’s there.

We started our journey from Lot 10 Hutong, one of the best place to sample some gourmet foods. The name Hutong is a Chinese word for an alleyway. It resembles the ancient food alleyways seen in Beijing’s old quarter, but this place Lot 10 Hutong is an indoor food court at the Lot 10 department store.

You will love everything here. Smell, array of the shops and the price.

This building resembles a mosque, so basically you are entering into a huge cave or a square that can be used as a prayer hall if they need to. The grand mall makes anyone wonder what a waste of space inside of the mall.

Din Tai Fung, World’s Top 10 restaurant, selected by New York Times is here. A dumpling specialist originated in  Xinyi road Taipei, Taiwan and also well known for the steamed bun.

I didn’t mind emptying my wallet here but the family wanted to keep some money for other things.
