A taste of down to earth malaysian market. Peoples taste, peoples prices. A real malaysia is seen here. Daily fresh fruits and vegetables. Its not that much clean, but all traditional markets are. If you have a family get your stuff from here.

10-15 minutes drive from KLCC. They got meat and vegetables mostly. Seemed fresh and cheap. A little bargaining would let u have great deals especially when u buy in bulks. Couldnt find shops with fruits. Asked some locals but they didnt gave a good answer.

Chow Kit market is extremely smelly and dirty. There,s a market nearby similar to Chinatown. This was our first experience in Asia so maybe it's the norm.

Chow Kit is a brilliant market to explore. Friendly and engaging traders, no issues with taking photos, lots of fruits to try. Definitely worth a visit if you want to see a more down to earth side of KL.

You’re quite close to the center of KL but the ambiance is quite different. Few tourists (that I can identify) very friendly local people and many cheap restaurants
