Visit Central Market Kuala Lumpur, a famous retail and cultural center noted as a Malaysian Heritage Site. Founded in 1888, the iconic Art Deco building originally served the local community as a wet market selling meat and produce. Today it features a traditional stall layout with vendors selling everything from antiques to T-shirts. Head to the annex in the back of the building to see art galleries, performance areas, and shops selling arts and crafts. If you've worked up an appetite, the popular food court offers a range of delicious treats from across the world in a bustling and authentic setting.

The best craft market in KL. The place is neat and clean. You have to bargain to get best price. Most of the merchant is friendly. This market indeed is provided for tourists. Not only craft you will also find foods, apparel, and many more. It becomes one stop shopping market for souvenirs. On entrance gate of the market is build in 1888. Wow is an old market!
If you plan on buying any chocolates, best to buy inside Central Market. There's actually a stall that sells it at the cheapest amount. Best to buy from there but you can also go through every one of them. Free taste too. I suggest you buy water just in case you have too much chocolate 😅
