Kasturi Walk in Kuala Lumpur

Chinatown Shopping

Kasturi Walk is a covered, open-air flea market set along Jalan Kasturi, a lane running alongside Central Market. Here, you’ll find local snacks and vendors selling fake label handbags, watches, T-shirts, flip flops and more as well as fruit stalls. It is similar to Petaling Street but not as crowded.

Right over the front entrance of the tiled walkway is a pewter wau bulan (a type of Malay kite) which looks like a butterfly. Although Kasturi Walk does not have the same extensive range of traders as Petaling Street the goods are reasonably priced plus its convenient location makes a trip here worthwhile. It was established in early 2011, so it all looks fairly new with clean kiosks and stalls.


Food stalls sell everything from Malay kuih and Chinese dim sum to Indian rojak and other local snacks. A popular spot with tourists, during special events Kasturi Walk organises cultural performances. Sometimes you can get even better bargains at Kasturi Walk than at Central Market.

To get there using the LRT, alight at the Pasir Seni station: from there it is only a few minutes walk to Kasturi Walk; the KTM Komuter also has a stop (Kuala Lumpur) nearby the market. Another easy way is to hop on a bus or taxi; nearby landmarks include Petaling Street, the Dayabumi Complex and National Mosque.
