BAZAAR’s Pick: Uniquely Designed, The Chow Kit

2 of 3

Worth getting up for …

With a mix of Malaysian culture and languages spoken on the streets, the neighbourhood is vibrantly intertwined with people and buildings alike, full of character and quirkiness. Being very close to the city yet with no high rise buildings nearby, this is the most authentic Kuala Lumpur neighbourhood, home to many generations of residences. A more underground side to this area is that it is the city’s red light district. More interesting for the shoppers, find KL’s largest, most lively wet market nearby, a sea of stalls selling anything you name. Guests who wonder where The Chow Kit got its name may be interested in visiting the beautiful Loke Hall where the Penang-born tin tycoon lived with his family. Built in 1907, this architectural elegance now houses the Malaysian Institute of Architects. Ask the friendly staff of The Chow Kit Hotel or join a tour to experience the area around the hotel, first hand:
