Lots of artisanal stuffs. Not the best price. You need to have good bargaining skills if you want to shop there.

Visited "central market" in Kuala Lumpur. Easily accessible place. You can reach there by bus / Train / taxi. Under one roof, this place has all sorts of art, crafts and food. There is even a small area for fish spa.

Great place to find knick knacks, including handicrafts and traditional Baba Nyonya Jewelry and souvenirs. Also, Kasturi walk and Petaling Street are just a stones throw away, so a DEFINITE yes for those who like shopping. :)
