Central Market (Pasar Seni) Tours

star-3
5 Reviews
Central Market (Pasar Seni)
Housed in a beautifully restored art deco building, Kuala Lumpur’s Central Market (Pasar Seni) forms the backbone of the city’s commercial scene. Hundreds of stalls sell household goods, souvenirs, and traditional batik artwork, and Kasturi Walk offers visitors some of Malaysia’s most popular street-food dishes.

The Basics
The vast majority of Kuala Lumpur sightseeing tours include a stop at the Central Market, due to the heritage status of the art deco building. The market plays a central role in most KL shopping tours—which also tend to stop in Bukit Bintang—and is a common feature of full-day city sightseeing tours, which offer first-time visitors an overview of top attractions such as the Batu Caves, KL Tower, and the Petronas Towers.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Central Market Kuala is a must-visit for travelers looking to pick up some unique souvenirs.
  • Stalls are grouped into three zones—Malay, Chinese, and Indian—that reflect the cultural diversity of KL.
  • Be mindful of your belongings when the market is crowded.
  • Home to numerous food stalls, the top level of the food court is the perfect place to take a break from shopping.

How to Get There
As its name implies, Central Market is located in the heart of the city. Travelers can reach the market by taking the green MSBK metro line to Pasar Seni, from which Central Market is a 5-minute walk. To avoid having to navigate an unfamiliar public transport system, most visitors opt to relax during a guided tour.

When to Get There
Central Market is open daily from 10am until 10pm. Attracting both tourists and locals, the market is generally crowded and maintains a bustling atmosphere throughout the day.

The Best Stalls in Central Market Kuala Lumpur
Unless you’re a local, the outdoor bazaar is a difficult place to navigate. If you’re not looking for anything in particular, a great starting point is the Little India section, where a jumble of stalls sell fashion accessories, clothing, and kitch home decorations. In the Malay area, you’ll find locally made handicrafts that reflect the culture of Malaysia’s indigenous people.
Address: Jalan Hang Kasturi, Kuala Lumpur 50050, Malaysia
