Hang out around Cen­tral Mar­ket


Time Out Malaysia Visitors Guide - - KL & SURROUNDS -

Af­ter your her­itage walk, Cen­tral Mar­ket (Pasar Seni) (cen­tral­mar­ket.com.my) should be your next stop. For­merly the city’s main wet mar­ket, this Art Deco build­ing was rein­vented as a cen­tre for lo­cal hand­i­crafts, an­tiques and art. It’s a war­ren of lit­tle stores where you can pick up any­thing from tra­di­tional batik and woven bas­kets to an­tique ce­ram­ics and sou­venirs. Plus, there’s a host of hip cafés in the area boast­ing shabby chic or in­dus­trial in­te­ri­ors. Head to Mer­chant’s Lane (fb.com/mer­chantslane) for lo­calised café cui­sine, and Chocha Food­store (fb.com/chocha.food­store) for in­no­va­tive fu­sion dishes; it’s also one of the most In­sta­grammable places in the city. It’s in­ter­est­ing to note that this area used to be a no­to­ri­ous red light area.
