Petaling Street is a street in the heart of Kuala Lumpur famed for its great food. This street market is filled to capacity and often serves as an important journey for tourist and locals alike in discovering the cultures of the country’s past as well as present. Petaling Street goes by many names such as China Town and ‘Chee Cheong Kai’ named after the introduction of the noodles known as ‘Chee Cheong Fun’. The street welcomes its visitors with two large Chinese arches with a signage of the famed street’s name on both ends of it and is covered throughout with a green roof cover now dubbed the ‘Green Dragon’. Regarded as a heritage site of the country, the street is completely pedestrianized meaning the entire street is used for shoppers to walk on without the disruption of vehicles passing through.
