Jalan Alor in other words the Culinary Haven of Kuala Lumpur is one of the most famous streets of the city. As soon as you step onto street the whole image of city changes. The modern shopping malls and sky scrappers are replaced by street hawkers and food stalls which gives it a very classical look. The best culinary delights which Malaysia has to offer can be found on this street. During the day there is not much activity but when the sun goes down the street is hustling and bustling with activity. It is one of the most favourite places of international tourists in KL as you can find food of all three dominant races of Malaysia; Malays, Chinese and Indians.

DO'S AND DONT'S
Malaysia is has it's our own customs and visitors should try to observe these practices when they arrive. Some common courtesies and customs are as follows:
• Although handshakes are generally acceptable for both men and women, some Muslim ladies may acknowledge introductions to gentlemen by merely nodding and smiling. A handshake should only be initiated by ladies. The traditional greeting or salam resembles a handshake with both hands but without the grasp. The man offers both hands, lightly touches his friend's outstretched hands, and then brings his hands to his chest to mean, "I greet you from my heart". The visitor should reciprocate the salam.
• It is polite to call before visiting a home.
• Shoes must always be removed when entering a Malaysian home.
• Drinks are generally offered to guests. It is polite to accept.
• The right hand is always used when eating with one's hand or giving and receiving objects.
• The right forefinger is not used to point at places, objects or persons. Instead, the thumb of the right hand with four fingers folded under is the preferred usage.
• Shoes must be removed when entering places of worship such as mosques and temples. Some mosques provide robes and scarves for female visitors. Taking photographs at places of worship is usually permitted but always ask permission beforehand.
• Toasting is not a common practice in Malaysia. The country's large Muslim population does not drink alcohol.

recommend this hotel
This hotel is easily one of the top five hotels I've stayed at. Staff is very friendly and helpful. KL Sentral and Nu Sentral mall are very close. The pool is exceptional. The gym is excellent. The only thing I did have a hard time were uber/cabs finding the lobby of the hotel, where countless uber drivers could not find their way. To be fair, there is a security checkpoint, but it was very troubling.
Other than that, I've enjoyed my stay.
