Photoshoot Session: Where is Kuala Lumpur? A Kuala Lumpur Photo Shoot Tour PART 2

While still mesmerised by the wonders of the different cultures and races exist in this area, we wandered through the infamous Petaling Street, also known as the Chinatown.

Chinatown stays true to its icon – being dingy, messy and having an euphoria of Chinese food choices at virtually every single corner of the street, but we found it to be unique and has its own characteristic charm.


Just take a look at the photo above, it is as if it is shot right out from the movie set. The whole area is definitely a photographic heaven for street photographer!

Having shamelessly self proclaimed my undying love towards the Great Britain, I ushered my mate to the Moorish style British colonial train station which is situated a stone throw away from the Chinatown. And trust me, you might still be able to have a whiff of that British train fetish romantism lingering around this building.

Photoshoot Session: Where is Kuala Lumpur? A Kuala Lumpur Photo Shoot Tour

Not too long ago, I welcomed my Hong Kong mate visit to Malaysia once again. And this time around, his travel itinerary revolved around the capital city of Kuala Lumpur in which the locals rather love to call it as KL.
Since my mate shares the similar interest with me – photography. His short trip has been heavily laced with unique photography spots in KL.
Right, first stop is the must-have Kuala Lumpur old city tour. We started off the journey from the Klang River side, walking towards the Central Market and its adjacent area for some street photography actions.


The view of the pseudo-old Kuala Lumpur downtown where the city started its root in the mid 1800s, in which in my opinion, is rather young if compared with other countries. Some say the Klang River in KL is equally comparable to the Seine River in Paris… For me, I think that is rather an over statement for Klang River and at the same time undermining the beauty of the Seine River…Ha!!!
We were blessed attacked by the hot sunny day. But at least the light is not too harsh to get some rather nice shots! Yeah, and I lied when I said we were going for the street photography theme. I slipped back to my old habit of snapping the architecture of the buildings. Somehow I fonder the brick and mortar than human.
