About Central Market, Kuala Lumpur

A major landmark, a popular tourist attraction, a beautiful building, and a historical heritage - this market is all of these. Formed 120 years ago, it used to be a wet market. It has since evolved into a much more cultured scene. Today it is filled with boutiques, handicraft stalls, arts and crafts stalls. That’s on the first floor. The second floor has a collection of delicious restaurants.

The sections of the market are divided by race. This means the best time to visit the market is during festivals, when the ethnic communities really shine - Hari Raya, Chinese New Year, Deepavali. The market is also popular place to hold contemporary art exhibitions, in the Annexe Gallery. Do not miss checking out of the Batik Emporium.

  • ...absolutely loved Central Market! Offers a wide range of normal gifts plus some very special small shops offering high class local produce/gifts at war we thought we're very reasonable prices! There is one shop in particular selling local pottery type items (ugh as handmade cups/tea sets/etc...absolutely perfect products of top quality for reasonable prices (sorry can't remember shops name)....brought a few gifts for friends and they were amazed with the gifts! Central Market is clean and very well organised..if you want to change money at the money exchange here...don't be afraid to haggle with him as we did and for a much better rate after some bartering. ...HIGHLY RECOMMEND A VISIT!

  • Wonderful place for traveler, is a very historical tourist attraction that Government decided to list it as attraction of Malaysia. Is a good place to buy souvenir, it have lots of local boutiques and some local handicraft but beware some stuff is made in china instead of local craft. And this place is very nearby to public transport! Also there lots of other attraction nearby.

  • One of the oldest tourist attraction place in KL,old but beautifully constructed. A huge range of parking exactly in front of the main entrance, a lot of antique things shops ,souvenirs, handicraft and Shirts with KL LOGO FOR visitors. There is a small street besides the back entrance ART STREET,beautiful paintings and professional painters are there with their masterpiece. Weird thing is visitors need to pay 50 cents for washrooms if they want to use . variety of different food available clean and well managed market.

  • Cool Market with diverse shops. Attention: Often are things more expensive than in a shopping mall. You have to bargain very good, to buy things with a good price. Delicious Restaurants and very good Food Corner!

  • Very vibrant and interesting market. This s the place to go to if you wish to buy souvenirs . It is three floors of shopping paradise with every thing you can imagine available. Some of the handicraft shops are real treasure troves. Must browse around for interesting stuff to take back home with you
