Owner description: Central Market began life as a wet market in 1888, built by Yap Ah Loy, the city’s Chinese Kapitan. It served as a prominent landmark in colonial and modern-day Kuala Lumpur. When the wet market was relocated in the 1980s, the Malaysian Heritage Society successfully petitioned against the demolition of the building. Now, Central Market Kuala Lumpur is an iconic attraction and a delightful destination for tourists, shoppers and art lovers.

Cute little market or arcade type layout.

Not the cheapest but no hussle and bussle like Petaling.
Toilets cost 50 sens to use and they give you toilet paper.

Nice and cool inside.

Nice spot for I ❤ KL type of stuff. It's A really nice historical building, well kept. Good place to find postcards.. Lol. A few good local food stalls outside.. but not many. Still a place to pass through for maybe a hour or so.

Lots of good stalls and it's air conditioned! Cheap food in the food market. Very close to Chinatown so you can combine them.

Located in China Town of Kuala Lumpur. You'll see another hustle bustle of KL. A good place for those who love to explore traditional market. Definitely recommend this place!

This a nice market with lots of food options and stores, but it's not the best in KL. There are other markets to buy fresh food, fish and vegetables. This is mre for tourism.
