China Town, Kuala Lumpur

Postmarked, as far as I can tell, Subang. Dated 17 February 1987.

GW 338 China Town - Kuala Lumpur: A typical daily scene in this stretch of Petaling street, teeming with people and cars. Come evening this busy stretch of street becomes a fairyland of lights from hundreds of stalls lining both sides of the street and in the centre. Variety of goods are displayed for a bargain.

I believe Petaling Street is now a pedestrian area so it must look very different!


  1. Hey Sheila, thanks for posting this. I luv it...and it's my Chinatown..hehhhe. Did u by any chance visit this place?

    Yeah alot has changed since...i prefer it in the old days. I visited it recently and somehow the place has lost that old charm..:(

  2. Nice shot! Bring back the memory so long ago.

  3. Yes, it has changed a lot since I went there 2 years ago.

  4. Sadly I've never been to this part of the world at all. maybe one day .... But it's really good to hear from all of you who do know the area.

  5. Hi Sheila,

    Petaling Street or know as China town is well known for its diverse forms of performing businesses. It's the place that never sleeps but you may see a few people sleep there as well.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
