Head to the annex in the back of the building to see art galleries, performance areas, and shops selling arts and crafts. If you've worked up an appetite, the popular food court offers a range of delicious treats from across the world in a bustling and authentic setting.

  • This place is tourist spot in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Can be a meeting place. A good rendezvous and landmark. Inside very clean and well arrange plus air-conditioning. Varieties of antiques can be find here
  • Great little place for a tourist trail. Lots of places for souvenirs as well as odd trinkets to be found. Compact in size so no danger of getting lost. Several good places to eat as well. Well worth a visit.
  • A good place to relax, eat and shop for souvenir when it's so hot outside. Most shops have the same stuff though. But it's a nice market with ac. A good place to stop after waking around in China town.
  • A New way to discover KL... I will labelled here as new attraction to visit KL. You can find unique souvenirs that truly Malaysia but a bit expensive in price due to some of it handmade.. Some small bite and local cuisine can be found there as well... DHL service provided at the entrance...The parking charges is expensive, not encourage to drive there.
  • Was there for my first time, it was nice. Just walked around and looked at things (touristy souvenirs), also made me feel like a tourist in my own country. haha.
