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.

  • Looking for souvenir, then this the place to go. One the best market in kl to buy stuff like souvenir, chocolate, handcrafted item and many more. The market is clean and well maintained, but can get crowded very quickly. Also if you want to use the washroom here you need to pay 50 cents. Here you can find the variety of souvenirs with good price and quality as compared to the other place in kl. Recommended

  • This place is great for getting things for anyone and everyone. Very busy and can get crowded very quickly. There are lots of Booths and shops to go into. Remember to bring $0.50 for the bathroom you have to pay to use them. The Old Town Cafe inside is really good. Remember if you like ketchup to always ask for tomato sauce because if not they give you chili sauce just FYI.

  • One of the many tourist spot in Kuala Lumpur. I didn't visit this place for years so I hopped in for a look-see. For those who looks for nice souvenirs to brings home, this is the place to seek your treasures. I'm impressed the place now are much cleaner, well ventilated and better cool air condition. Also have food court upstairs to offer local and tourist variety of foods.

  • Tempat yang cocok buat belanja produk malaysia. Mulai dari kerajinan hingga makanan. Harga nya pun boleh ditawar. Kejelian memilih dan menawar di sini bisa diandalkan, terutama yang punya skill tawar di atas rata-rata. Lokasinya pun di pusat keramaian, tidak sulit menemukannya via maps. Jalan kaki pun seru.

  • Nice place to visit and get souvenirs. Nice food place too. Good parking. Have clean rest room. Varieties of products from handcraft. Easily accessible via own transportation or public transport. Many other visiting places nearby.
