Probably you will come here after a very bad experience in the china town. The environment here is very nice. Closed market since 1886 with air conditioning.

We asked our guide to bring us to a place that sells local crafts.
We were brought here. However, the prices are higher than other stores we went to around the city. Altough they had so many stores selling all kinds of crafts, be careful when buying. Bathroom use costs us a few cents.

A haven to all shoppers or tourist just want to chill this part of KL. You can find affordable souvenirs, a lot restaurants and bars, cheap hotel nearby, art galeries, fruit vendors. Expect more crowds on weekends.

Central market is open every day from 10 AM to 10 PM and easy to reach with the subway. My advice is to avoid saturday and sunday afternoon. In one place you will find a lot of shops proposing malaysian handcraft and jewellery. Prices are overall low and you can bargain! At the end of your visit you will probably have many gifts to bring back, don't worry there is a cab station nearby! Central market is just near the China town also!

A complete souvenir center and low prices. At a bulding with two floors and there is a foodcourt upstairs. It's just that there is no place to rest. There is a money changer with competitive rates. Located near the LRT station.

The food was really local I mean positive way or negative one.
If you want to try local food, in that case it is ok since there is better restroom and air conditioner.
I also bought a set of traditional clothes as Nyonya Kebaya there.
The price was a little higher than others but I was so tired to go out because of the humid weather.
so it was ok for me.
Try something new and feel it!

My 2nd time here since a few years ago. It houses many shops selling traditional Malaysian cultural arts and handicrafts, and is just a quick 2-minute walk from Pasar Seni mrt. An interesting place to window-shop even if you don't purchase any item :). Do remember to swing by Petaling Street/Chinatown which is nearby.
