I was informed about Lost in Chinatown, a new attraction in Petaling Street, when it first opened to the public in mid-June.

I felt an affinity with it because I actually lost my way in Petaling Street, also known as Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown, one day. Me being me, if I were to go there today without someone to guide me, I would lose my way again.

When I put up at Avenue J Hotel one night recently, I did not allow the chance to visit Lost in Chinatown to pass.

The hotel, is after all, within walking distance to Petaling Street. Luckily for me, Lost in Chinatown is just at the entrance of Petaling Street, just a stone’s throw away from its imposing arch.

Lost in Chinatown is an attraction dedicated to the exploration of Chinese art, culture and tradition. Additionally, it is also a venue that allows visitors to learn about other Malaysian attractions, sort of killing two birds with one stone.

Laid out like a maze, visitors are encouraged to take their time to look through the photos and accompanying captions. This is the reason there are four missions that we can go on, to explore Lost in Chinatown in depth.

By the way, do bring your camera along. There are many photography corners worth capturing in memory. The helpful staff can assist if you are visiting alone.

Even as a Chinese myself, who thinks that I already know quite a lot about my own kind, I still regard Lost in Chinatown interesting. I especially liked the gallery that displays photographs of Chinatowns from around the world.
