  • The best craft market in KL. The place is neat and clean. You have to bargain to get best price. Most of the merchant is friendly. This market indeed is provided for tourists. Not only craft you will also find foods, apparel, and many more. It becomes one stop shopping market for souvenirs. On entrance gate of the market is build in 1888. Wow is an old market!
  • If you plan on buying any chocolates, best to buy inside Central Market. There's actually a stall that sells it at the cheapest amount. Best to buy from there but you can also go through every one of them. Free taste too. I suggest you buy water just in case you have too much chocolate 😅
