Petaling StreetMalaysia back in the olden days was also the time when the Chinese migrated here to work in our tin mines. The Chinese at that time had to leave their tin mines when a civil war broke out and then, when the war was over, they returned to their mines; destroyed by flood attacks. An influential Chinese at that time decided to help these Chinese. Thus, he opened what is known today as Petaling Street- and Malaysians and tourists have him to thank for this spectacular place to visit!
