Bintang Walk - A City Within A City
Taking a walk in Malaysia, you can scout the Bintang Walk to get the true taste of Kuala Lumpur. The Bintang Walk is Kuala Lumpurs premiere dining, shopping and people watching street that is located at the heart of the citys Golden Triangle. The Golden Triangle is best known for its long stretch of shopping malls, good food, and hotels that make this place a city within a city. The area is divided into two sections: the Bukit Bintang and the KLCC. The KLCC caters mostly for the above average shopper and the mannered individual, while the Bukit Bintang caters for the average, wild shopaholics and coffee-sipping nocturnal persons.
The Bintang Walk is more of a neighborhood than any other thing. Although it has always been regarded as a fashionable and trendy part of Kuala Lumpur, it has been lately transformed into a modern shopping district and food court as well as being a historic part of the town. The Bukit Bintang is easily accessible by taxi, bus or high speed trains that are locally known as the Monorail system. The Bintang Walk is a busy commercial centre and has many businesses and offices operating in it, not to mention the sea of shoppers and party lovers that jam the walk.
Its transformation started 5 years ago and now the Bukit Bintang is must visit for any foreign or local visitor. There is a wide pedestrian pavement that runs across the walkway, which has made the area an interesting rendezvous point for people of all walks of life. At Bintang Walk, there are many al fresco fast food outlets, individual stores selling bric brac, dining outlets, Indian coffee shops, pharmacies, gifts shops, banks, and whatever you think you need.
