KL & Sur­rounds

Brick­fields (Lit­tle In­dia)

Jalan Travers to Jalan Tun Sam­ban­than, Brick­fields, KL. A small town just out­side KL Sen­tral, Brick­fields is a melt­ing pot of Malaysian cul­ture. You’ll find art gal­leries, mar­kets as well as var­i­ous stalls serv­ing In­dian cui­sine. While the gov­ern­ment is quick to call it the ‘sec­ond Lit­tle In­dia’ af­ter Masjid In­dia, spend a lit­tle more time in the neigh­bour­hood and you’ll find there’s more to it than meets the eye.

NEW Pe­nang Time Tun­nel
