Travel: Lost in Chinatown

In Petaling Street, we walked past shops and stalls selling souvenirs, clothings and trinkets looking for an attraction place called, “Lost in Chinatown”.

Right smack in the middle of the long street of Malaysia’ Chinatown, almost hidden in one of the stalls, is the entrance to this cultural gallery.

But mind you, this is no ordinary gallery. Once we entered the place, we were greeted by a life like statue of Bruce Lee.

There were pictures of the old Chinatown in Malaysia and the Chinatowns all over the world. Plus a display of an old rickshaw.

Little did we know that, it was more than that.  I was surprised when I found out that the second floor was actually a “maze” like an escape room of some sort where you go through dark rooms searching.

We were given a card with 4 pictures.

In the second floor, a display of pop culture images were posted on the walls. We then have to enter a very dark room, it was so dark and creepy that we thought it was a haunted house attraction. Apparently, we had to go around the maze with only the darkness surrounding us. We had to use our mobile phone’s lights to see around the place. Our goal was to look for the pictures in our cards around the area then take a photo of them using our cellphone camera and camera flash.

It was fun and scary at the same time. We all had to cooperate to be able to find the pictures and complete our mission. It took teamwork. So in less than hour we were able to get out of the maze to show the photos we took to the game master.

If you’re looking for a fun place to check out in Petaling Street, dropby Lost in Chinatown. The entrance fee to the “Maze in the Dark” is really affordable too as it’s only 10 RM per person.
