Kuala Lumpur Markets

Petaling Street, Central Market, Pasar Malam

If you ever get tired of Kuala Lumpur’s malls then head over to one of the city’s street markets: outdoor bazaars that are the superpowers in the city’s shopping scene, the best of which is Petaling Street. It rules the roost with a jambalaya of stalls selling knockoff handbags, wallets, purses, shoes, belts, watches and more as well as booths with DIY home decorations, traditional handicrafts and kitsch knick knacks.

Those looking to grab art pieces by local artists can head to Central Market while Chow Kit Market and Kasturi Walk are filled with mini stalls selling everything from sunglasses and second hand books to pre-loved clothes and figurines.
