PREVIOUS PARTS: Day 1 (Part 1 of 3), Day 1 (Part 2 of 3)
Our next destination… the busy, crowded, festive and restaurant-riddled street of Jalan Alor.
This is one long strip of road that seems to never sleep at night. The entire stretch of Jalan Alor is lined with all sorts of food stalls, with tables and chairs that overflow from their respective restos and stretch out to the sidewalk and practically takes up almost a third of the street itself. If you’re into ihaw-ihaw and al fresco dining, this is the spot to hit.
If you’re familiar with banchetto, imagine that but a couple of times bigger. Best to dress down and dig in when you’re here! Just be sure to keep your wallet and valuables close to you. I enjoyed this place a whole lot! Good food, awesome crowd, party atmosphere… it’s just very Pinoy, me thinks!
You will also see a few stalls selling souvenirs and knick-knacks along the way. Best to check them out if your looking to purchase a few “I LOVE KL” shirts.
Why not? Walking was the best way to see more of Kuala Lumpur… to breathe the air, to appreciate the traffic noise, to enjoy the nightlife along the way. Immersion, baby! Yeah!
Day 1 of our tour was an absolute success! It was everything I had imagined Malaysia to be and so much more. Little did I know that there were more wonderful sights and adventures in store for us the next day…
(To be continued… Watch out for DAY 2 very soon!)
