Owner description: Central Market began life as a wet market in 1888, built by Yap Ah Loy, the city’s Chinese Kapitan. It served as a prominent landmark in colonial and modern-day Kuala Lumpur. When the wet market was relocated in the 1980s, the Malaysian Heritage Society successfully petitioned against the demolition of the building. Now, Central Market Kuala Lumpur is an iconic attraction and a delightful destination for tourists, shoppers and art lovers.

we visited central market on 3rd December. It has lot of shops from clothes, souvenirs and foodstuff. There are a lot of restaurants also. They have a spa called "GENESIS STEP" (M19-Mezzanine floor). The place offers excellent massage. The services offered are not very time limited. I did a foot and shoulder massage for an hour (65 MYR) and it actually lasted 75 minutes. Very polite and caring staff. A great place to relax and rejuvenate after shopping!

I visited the shopping center in my last day in Kuala Lumpur. I regret that I didn't visit it from the first day. All shopping and gifts I needed to buy are here and with good prices. All king of gifts you need to buy are here. So it's a must to visit for shopping gifts.

This shopping centre is popular of selling the hand made item made by the locals like batik shirts, caricature art or souvenir item can be found here. It is busy during the day time because it is located in the middle of the depot of the kl buses where many interchange of buses by the locals passenger took place here. They are also many old building and shop lots at the surrounding area too which sell many item like dried seafood. A walking distance of 10 to 15mins from here you can reach the china town just opposite a shopping mall call Sinar Kota.
