Chow Kit Market
One of the liveliest and most culturally enriching scenes in Kuala Lumpur, a visit to Chow Kit Market is sure to take up a healthy chunk of your time when you are visiting the area. Found at the northern end of Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, it is divided into two sections: a wet market and dry bazaar, both with stalls tightly packed together. Expect to find specialty meats at inexpensive prices at the wet market, which has a mix of spices and fish scenting the air.
However, it is the dry section of the bazaar that is most appropriate for tourists; cleaner with a maze of stalls selling fruit and vegetables as well as clothes, shoes, CDs, DVDs and textiles. The entire market is shaded by oversized, colourful umbrellas in a kaleidoscope of colours.
Opening Hours: 09:00 – 17:00
Location: Jalan Haji Hussein, Chow Kit
