Pasar malam

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - City weekends -

As much as you tell your­self that an out­ing to the mall will only be for win­dow shop­ping, it’s in­evitable that un­nec­es­sary toys and snacks will be bought. An ex­cur­sion to the lo­cal pasar malam or night mar­ket al­lows for more pock­et­friendly in­dul­gences. Pop­u­lar mar­kets that take place on the week­ends in KL are Pasar Malam Se­tia Alam (Satur­day), Pasar Malam Ta­man Me­gah (Sun­day) and the Bangsar night mar­ket (Sun­day).

The night mar­ket at Se­tia Alam, which sur­passes Ta­man Con­naught’s night mar­ket as the coun­try’s long­est pasar malam at 2.4 kilo­me­tres, is a on­estop spot for cheap food, cloth­ing, elec­tron­ics, trin­kets and more. Ta­man Me­gah’s mar­ket, on the other hand, might not of­fer as much se­lec­tion, but is more com­fort­able to browse given the smaller crowd. The Bangsar mar­ket is ap­par­ently more ex­pen­sive and smaller, but is still a great op­tion for buy­ing cheap fruits and veg­eta­bles, lo­cal desserts and kuih and the usual use­less bits kids al­ways seem to sniff out. What bet­ter way to pass the week­end than snack­ing on crispy apom while ab­sorb­ing the sights and sounds of a typ­i­cal lo­cal night mar­ket?

Be sure to carry small change! Mar­kets open from 4-10pm.
