Before I flew back to Sibu on August 24 by AirAsia's flight at 18:25, I took the morning off to the two shopping malls nearby Capitol Hotel at Jalan Bukit Bintang.
Bukit Bintang is thus far the most bustling business district in KL.
I learned from one cab driver that, after 3 pm, Jalan Bukit Bintang is so jammed with traffic that all cabs levy surcharge on passengers for cab services to this area.
A normal 20-minute drive may easily quadruple during the jam hours. The levy of surcharge is built on this basis.
Bukit Bintang is, therefore, commonly refered to as "black" area in KL for this reason.
