The Chinese call it Chi-Cheong-Kai in Cantonese. It is located at the Southeast of Central Market, bounded by Jalan Bandar, Jalan Petaling and Jalan Sultan.

The street has actually been given a facelift. Petaling Street is now better sheltered and its walkway covered to protect from the heat and rain.

It is famous for its makeshift bazaars or stalls; selling “very reasonably” priced goods like wallets, handbags, t-shirts, watches, shoes as well as dresses, sunglasses, shoes, fabrics and souvenirs. Tourists have learned bargain like the locals to buy their goods at a low price.
