Central Market (Pasar Seni)

Central Market is a must-see for anyone visiting KL.  It was formerly a wet market where fresh wet things, such as vegetables and fish, were sold.   But in recent years, Central Market has been transformed into a large collection of vendor stalls under one roof.

The vendors outside of Central Market have also been so successful that a canopy has been added on the side of the big blue building to keep the rain from chasing away customers.

We noticed the broad array of cultures represented there, among them Chinese, Indian, Malay, and Arab.  Sarongs, chopsticks, silks, fans, local fruits, teas, spices, hand-woven carpets and a whole array of souvenirs were spread out before us on two floors!

We enjoyed the chance to bargain for things at Central Market that we just can’t find back home in Wilkes-Barre!  Next stop: Petaling Street.
