Jalan TAR yang sudah bertar

Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman (TAR) is a traditional shopping district in Kuala Lumpur. It lies just north of the City Center and is named after its main artery, Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman, which is often abbreviated to Jalan TAR.

Besides Jalan TAR, the district also is home to the colorful shopping street of Jalan Masjid India, which is chock-a-block with shops specializing in saris and other Indian apparel. Indeed, the area is sometimes called Little India, although several other parts of KL (notably Brickfields) compete for that title and these days there are at least as many Indonesians around.

The northern part of the district is called Chow Kit, known among locals as KL’s low-end red light district, but it’s also famous for bargain shopping and food. The famous Chow Kit Wet Market has never stopped being the favorite wet market of all. You’ll also be able to see things which you’ll never be able to find elsewhere in KL, like the full array of Malay traditional medicine. The Jalan Haji Hussein street market at night is similar to Chinatown’s Petaling street offering fake goods & delicious local food which is located just off the Chow Kit Monorail stop.

The Tuanku Abdul Rahman end of Jalan Sultan Ismail has become KL’s new hot nightspot. Nicknamed Heritage Row, restaurants and clubs are now breathing new life into the old dilapidated terrace houses of Jalan Doraisamy and Jalan Yap Ah Shak, just off Jalan Sultan Ismail.

Bus routes B101 and B103 run from Titiwangsa to Chow Kit.
