Head to the annex in the back of the building to see art galleries, performance areas, and shops selling arts and crafts.

  • Used to be a nice place to visit with local goods. Really run down now and looks dingy. Prices to high 
  • There is cultural dance performance in the evening. My kids enjoyed it much as they seldom see the dancers with full make up and full accessories and beautiful malay costume. The shops selling variety...  read more »
  • Buy all you can. Very cheap price and good quality.. just few minutes walk from MRT station, and fiew mins walk from Chinatown and City Gallery. 
  • Great place to visit while in KL. Basically you can do all your bits and pieces shopping here. Plus a lot of little things for yourself. Get your feet nibbled by the little fishies. Some clothes or fabrics. Trinkets of KL or something a little more different. Food here was pretty great. As elsewhere in KL size of venue had no bearing on quality. So even if its a small shopfront with one steamer, the dumplings will probably be awesome. Some climate control is inside so you'll be relieved a bit. Lots of taxi's and public transport go there as well.
  • Little expensive but good. You should start bargaining from rhe half of the etiquette price. And first have a look all the shops. Then start bargaining.
  • It's a lovely maze of shops. Local souvenirs and handicraft. Try getting your and and your loved ones name engraved on rice and then bottled together in a lovely locket to treasure for ever. Also take home a bottle of wild honey.
  • Nice place to go shopping for souvenirs, info. about KL, all the tourist attractions n spend the afternoon with the family on AC place nice n cool.
  • tourists must visit, unique market with inexpensive stuff..
