"Swap meat Malaysia style" Central Market Tip by hennanights

Central Market, Kuala Lumpur: 50 reviews and 82 photos


In the central markets you can find a wide selection of goods from expensive pottery to secondhand goods. We brought a few nice nick nacks here, although we saw them in Australian shops when we got home, however it is still nice to buy it on holiday as a remembrance. My husband picked up a great rucksack here at a cheap price. We then lugged it around Sabah and it proved a good investment. If you have been to Thailand you may find KL expensive. We saw a silk table we had brought in Phuket for $30 with a price tag $200 in KL. Its a good idea to do the rounds first as many shops sell the same item with different prices. You can haggle but we did not find it as well received as in other Asian areas. Up stairs you will find a food mall where we got a good meal very cheap. If you haven't tried the frozen ice dessert that is very popular with the locals, then you can do that here.
