PETALING Street in Kuala Lumpur has been around since the 1880s and this old part of Kuala Lumpur is seeing a change as pre-war shophouses are being spruced up and injected with new life.

Take a walk down Petaling Street (Jalan Petaling) and Jalan Sultan and be greeted by restored premises which are adding a new dimension to the city’s old quarter.
