Kampung Baru Night Market

Kuala Lumpur Night Markets

The Kampung Baru Night Market is predominantly run by the area’s Malay community, making it a great shopping venue for those looking for traditional Malay apparel, such as sarong, baju kurung, and songkok, along with jewellery and handicrafts. Also called the Kampung Baru Sunday Market, the name of this street market can be confusing to some since it actually runs from Saturday evening to early Sunday morning.
Founded in 1899, Kampung Baru Night Market is a popular KL night market that serves the local community with rows of stalls selling DVDs, books, clothing, and household goods at attractive prices. The neighbourhood itself offers plenty of sightseeing opportunities as it’s the oldest Malay village in the city centre, where you can find traditional timber homes, coconut and banana trees, while modern skyscrapers such as Menara KL Tower and Petronas Twin Towers can be seen from afar.

What to See and Do at Kampung Baru Night Market

The market is also a popular food haven in KL city centre as visitors can enjoy Malay specialities, including rojak (spicy fruit and vegetable salad), grilled fish, satay (grilled meat skewers), nasi lemak, and colourful kuih (Malay desserts). Some stalls have plastic tables and chairs arranged out on the streets if you’re looking to enjoy your food right there and then.
A must try here is nasi campur, which is basically rice with a variety of meat, seafood, vegetables and curries. Just grab a plate of rice and choose as many dishes you’d like, which are laid out in a buffet spread. A standard platter with three or four toppings costs about RM8, depending on the portions.
Located along Jalan Raja Muda Musa in KL city centre, the Kampung Baru Night Market is reachable via a number of public transportation. If you’re travelling by LRT, alight at the Kampung Baru station, while those using the monorail can alight at the Medan Tuanku station and walk 15 minutes northeast towards Kampung Baru.
