Chinatown, KL

Wandering around the Chinatown area of downtown Kuala Lumpur there is always something of interest. There are wonderful old shophouses, cafes, restaurants, shops, markets, temples, mosques, small lanes, colourful graffiti, old architecture, and new architecture to appreciate.

Kwai Chai Hong is a small back lane in Lorong Panggong, Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur which has had 10 old historical shophouses renovated and some beautiful wall murals drawn on the walls. The area features some wonderful old architecture plus the oldest lamppost in Kuala Lumpur.

Lorong Panggong is alternately known as Kwai Chai Hong in the Cantonese dialect and translates quite literally as “Ghost Lane” or “Little Demon Alley.”
