Kaki Lima Stories

Five-foot ways, known as 'kaki-lima', refer to five-foot-wide covered walkways extending along the fronts of shop houses or buildings. They serve as pathways for pedestrians and spaces for various transit activities. This week on I Love KL, we engage in a discussion with Camelia Kusumo and Lee Sze-ee, the authors of 'Kaki Lima Stories - Life In The Five Foot Ways of Downtown Kuala Lumpur', exploring the uniqueness of these walkways, their role in fostering 'sticky' businesses, and the ongoing debate regarding whether this area should be private or public.
