Experience the hustle and bustle of the ever popular Pudu market and see first-hand how traders, local farmers and their customers interact as bargains are made and delicious street food is eaten! This particular market is popular amongst the locals and is a far cry from some of the other touristy markets in the city. There’s plenty of fresh produce and character to be found here and, charmingly, not much has changed in the past 60 years.
Your foodie and shopping adventure begins with a stroll towards Pudu, with a stop on the way to visit some small local stalls where we’ll load up on some seriously good breakfast eats. For Malaysians, breakfast is an important affair and we suggest that you too take it very seriously during your stay! Sample some fresh rotis (unleavened flat breads of Indian origin) with curry from one of our favourite vendors. If spice isn't your thing, we’ll steer you towards some delicious fried delights as well as some of our most beloved traditional snacks. While you eat, your guide will tell fascinating stories about the origins of Kuala Lumpur and where it all began.
Onward to the hustle and bustle of the market to hear traders sell their wares and customers get involved in some frenzied bargaining! See how chickens are slaughtered and then sold, discover many of the different local spices and witness different ethnic traditions co-exist in a market that effectively demonstrates what makes Kuala Lumpur so special and unique. If you would like to make some purchases, your local guide will be able to help in overcoming the language barrier and guide you through the bargaining process.
Before you go, don’t forget to ask your guide for tips on what else to do and what else to eat during your stay in Kuala Lumpur.
