Central Market - Review
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.

I think the best thing about this place is the cute art deco exterior. There's a ton of shops inside aimed at tourists. Actually, it's probably a convenient place to go if you have to check off "shop for souvenirs" on your list of things to do before you leave the city. There's a good mix of shops. and the prices seemed reasonable from what I could glance walking through, maybe a little on the higher side but didn't seem exorbitant. There's also a food court inside, but can't vouch for the food as I did not eat anything there.
I totally love this place areas. I stayed near of central market 3 times because easy to find any food, near station, near everywhere! I could buy souvenirs here, a lot of choices. There are 2 types of seller here, outside and inside the building. Air conditioner is provided inside building, so you can shopping and buy anything without feel hot weather outside. Comfortable! In the first floor there are souvenirs shops and second floor there are tasty Asian restaurants with good taste and affordable price.
Very interesting place to hang out for souvenir shopping. Batik cloth, table runners, umbrella n everything batik. Other handicrafts are worth checking out too. Food around this place is great too. Everything local, Malaysian can be found here
Central Market is an air conditioned semi-mall located in the heart of the city close to Chinatown. We went there hoping to find some authentic Malaysian souvenirs and articles but by the time we were done, we were mostly disappointed. The market has quite a few small shops selling a variety of things from clothes, footwear, jewelry, wooden articles etc. but there isn't much variety since the same stuff is available at most shops. There are also a few small eateries that seem good. It is also important to explore the shops on the first floor as well. You might just find something good. Remember to you use your bargaining skills to full use if you don't want to be ripped off. Sadly, the best thing we found about this market was that the air conditioning was good prompting us to stay on a little longer to avoid the mid day humidity.
The best market ever in whole Kuala Lumpur. I recommend to go there to purchase souvenir gifts. Highly recommend to buy Durian chocolate jar love the test of this kind of chocolate and it's only available in this market hardly to find it somewhere else. The market is covered so even if it is raining you will spend good time with friends and family. Just remember you have to negotiate the price. Also there is an exchange currency shop inside. Even there is carrier for shipping your goods next to the main door.
