Central Market began life as a wet market in 1888, built by Yap Ah Loy, the city’s Chinese Kapitan. It served as a prominent landmark in colonial and modern-day Kuala Lumpur. When the wet market was relocated in the 1980s, the Malaysian Heritage Society successfully petitioned against the demolition of the building. Now, Central Market Kuala Lumpur is an iconic attraction and a delightful destination for tourists, shoppers and art lovers.

This was great. It's in a big hall with many different stalls. It's quite touristy, not the local experience I was wanting but still great. Prices can be higher than they should be, try bargaining down. There was a great variety of stalls.

Very neat and clean. Street side shopping experience with air conditioner. Good place to pick up souvenirs like fridge magnets and also shop for bags. Worth spending a couple of hours if you happen to visit China Town.

It's more upscale than many Asian markets I have been to. It's clean. Sometimes disorienting. (I made the wrong turn coming out of a shop.) Prices were reasonable at the stores we shopped at. I think it's a good place tourists.
