Brickfields Walk (Self Guided), Kuala Lumpur

The Brickfields neighborhood is a gorgeous treat for the senses, with a riot of color, sound and succulent aromas. Known as Kuala Lumpur's Little India, this delightful area is home to restaurants, stores and stalls run by members of the country's Indian community.

As you amble through Brickfields, delight in the hypnotic sounds and hectic rhythms of Bollywood music blasting out of shop fronts. Go to the three-story bazaar at the end of Jalan Tun Sambanthan and feast your eyes on the brightly colored saris featuring attractive designs as well as lots of other Indian goods. Elsewhere, visit market stalls for more traditional Indian clothes, fabrics, glass bangles, herbs, spices, CDs and DVDs. Many of these businesses stay open late into the evening.

Stop by the beautiful fountain and marvel at the brightly painted purple buildings. Then reward yourself with a meal in one of the fabulous eateries, which specialize in many different types of curries. There are delicious food creations that cater for every palate, whether you like it mild or so spicy that your meal blows the roof of your mouth off. In Brickfields, you will taste some of the finest Indian cuisine in the city and at prices that won't break the bank.
