Kuala Lumpur, and Malaysia, is a pretty multicultural place, and this market represents many of the nationalities of the people who share this city, down its Lorong Melayu, Straits Chinese and Lorong India. This is pretty much the place to come to get whatever you're looking for – the list of types of products you can pick up here is long but begins with clothes, shoes, jewellery, home furnishings, local crafts and art, flowers, wooden artefacts and souvenirs. And knock off products. And food – plenty of food of all kinds, all flavours and all nationalities.

Just beyond the three main lanes is a huge batik emporium, which is where you can get some of the best batik in the country as well as designer batik items. If a more upmarket experience is preferred there are also more formal sit down restaurants at this end of the market.

This site used to be a fish market – both fleshy fresh and dried

As with other central markets, be prepared to pay more for souvenirs picked up here – or get stuck into the bargaining culture.

This market stays open late and is busy in the evening when more buskers are about and the cooking smells are almost intoxicating.

Its so much fun shopping with someone new, you end up picking stuff you wouldn't have considered buying on your own.
