  • There's nothing much to see here in my opinion unless one is looking for cheap goods (mostly not original). One should be alert of their surroundings and stay safe while walking around this area.  more »

  • A lot of local and imported fruits can be found here. The price is quite cheap and in fact you can bargain for a lower price. It has the eating places known as warong and many local dishes are cooked fresh here. You can find all sorts of clothing as well. T-shirts printed with local pictures and slogans are quite cheap but of course not so much on the qualities. It's a nice place to visit.
  • Oldies are goodies. Best hidden treasure in terms of food and best place to buy fresh produce.
  • So many fresh fruit and unknown veggies and half the price compare to shopping center , very worth to visit. Love it
  • A good and cheap market where u can buy fruits,vegetables and meet.
  • It is home to an array of goodies and offers everything from fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh meat and seafood to dried foodstuffs and spices and cooked food. Oh, and let’s not forget the many stalls selling local wear. You can pretty much find anything here! It’s an interesting place and is very colourful and local in character and is apparently KL’s largest wet market. My kids had their noses scrunched throughout with all the unfamiliar sights and smells around them! Why 3 stars? 5 stars for the comprehensive variety of products. 2 stars for cleanliness, or should I say, lack thereof. My local family don't like shop here because of that!
