Central Market, Kuala Lumpur

Central Market, Kuala Lumpur

Mom, Sis and I went to Central Market in Kuala Lumpur. It is a cultural shopping centre, which in the old days was a wet market selling meat and vegetables.

Today, the shopping centre offers visitors a lot of unique Malaysian made goods, and a pleasant place to walk around.

I am not keen on going to a modern shopping centre for brands that can be found all over the world (such as Gap, Esprit, etc.) At this place, my sister bought a lovely blouse, and I bought a shirt and a scarf – all made locally.

Indoors (the blue building on the left of the 2nd last photo is the Central Market) is lovely and pleasant, but there are also more stalls/shops outdoors. It’s quite hot and humid outdoors, but I enjoyed walking around and admiring the architecture of the old buildings seen in the photos.

Photographing marketplaces is the best, the colors are the way I like them all mixed up and the architecture mixed in with the stall structures give a wide spread of architectural interest. Fantastic, Evelyn. Again, how lucky you are.

I love these colorful, lovely architectures! I also like to stroll around the local malls or markets and to buy handmade local product unique to the place.

I like all the buildings! Also how it seems like there's a small town indoors :D

Shopping sounds fun! Hope you had a great weekend, Evelyn!
