Petaling Street Market (Pasar Jalan Petaling)

A mecca for knock-off goods

What we say: 3.5 stars

Whatever international anti-piracy agreements Malaysia may have signed up to, stall after stall along Petaling Street Market openly sells counterfeit goods.

Whatever you may want, from the latest Hollywood blockbusters on DVD, to fake designer handbags, this is the place to go. All that piracy comes at a price though -- the highest hassle factor in all of KL.

Although the market looks distinctly shabby, the current covered structure was only built in 2003, at a cost of more than 11 million ringgit.

It's hard to believe the money could not have been better spent restoring the historic shophouses along this road to their former glory.
