1. Bukit Bintang

Wild, weird, crass, yet a creative crossroads, Bukit Bintang ("Star Hill" just doesn't sound as good) is K.L.'s civic strolling grounds, vast foot-reflexology parlor, Champs-Elysées and Times Square combined. This is where Lebanese kebab touts compete with discreet pimps, and venues for people-watching run the gamut from the cut-rate Sungei Wang Plaza to the upscale marble halls, trendy bars and lapping fountains of the Pavilion, K.L.'s latest temple of consumerism.
