  • Kuala Lumpur is a city full of contrasts, where you can find shops most exclusive signatures in areas of luxury to more humble jobs, in places that sometimes go a whole adventure may seem to most Indiana Jones-style. In this market destined to the population Malaysian can find the essence of it life everyday, them posts of fruits, vegetables, spices, meats and fish. If you've not had an opportunity to navigate this type of market, I advise you to do your first foray into this. Although season can seem overwhelming for people, smells, dirt alleys covered... is an experience that you will remember. Because if you stop and look carefully you will find a wide range of appetizing fruits, fresh vegetables, a variety of rice dishes... and despite the dirt the atmosphere is the most rewarding. I advise to go in closed shoes because the ground is uneven and there is water everywhere, or whatever... However, this market with others I've had opportunity to visit is quite well.

  • 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!
  • You can find all kinds of ingredients as well.as other kitchen needs but problwm is not enough car park, and irresponsible people park just anywhere they wish, like in the middle.of the road and causes congestion.
  • mkn durian kampong. 2 biji rm15. tambah lgi sebijik rm20. size durian sedang2 je. ok le dr xde kan..
  • looking for fruits with good price? than go to chow kit market
  • Very large and typical local market, not for the faint of heart they do butcher animals and display all the body parts for purchase
