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.

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.

Cendol ( Pronounce Chendol), a summer Malaysian delicacy, shaved ice in a coconut milk peppered with kidney beans and the green coconut jelly noodles. Yummm.
We now move to the pride of Malaysia for shopping, the Pavilion. Luxury and Pricey period.
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.
This ultra modern mall will make your small wallet look even smaller.
