For an all-year round insight into the Indian culture and shopping, take a stroll down the streets of Brickfields to enjoy the riot of colors and beautiful ethnic wares by the traders here. Brickfields is Malaysia’s official Little India and used to be a simple residential neighbourhood just outside KL but was recently transformed into a wide street with Indian stores and restaurants run by the country’s Indian community. The shops here sell everything from traditional Indian goods such as saris, flower garlands, spices and Bollywood music, to local delicacies such as vadai, thosai (Indian pancakes made from fermented rice flour) and more. Since its transformation, Little India Brickfields has turned into one of KL’s trademark tourist hotspots not only because of the wares found here but for its proximity to KL Sentral station. A large fountain marks the focal point, and the three-storied Indian Bazaar is a favourite place to find a bargain. After hours, the district lights up and gets bathed in even more colour. Easily accessible via the LRT and Monorail, as well as RapidKL buses, this is the best place to get a taste of India in Malaysia. Head over to the shops to get some gorgeous Indian attires and accessories to look your best on Deepavali day.
