Kuala Lumpur : Central Market

Central Market

The Central Market is just a stone's throw from Klang Bus Station and is situated immediately behind the Dayabumi building. Spend a morning wondering through what was once a busy 'wet market'!

This pre-war building was the principal wet market for Kuala Lumpur in earlier years. It was extensively renovated in the early 1980's and redesignated as an arts and cultural centre.
