  • Looking for souvenir, then this the place to go. One the best market in kl to buy stuff like souvenir, chocolate, handcrafted item and many more. The market is clean and well maintained, but can get crowded very quickly. Also if you want to use the washroom here you need to pay 50 cents. Here you can find the variety of souvenirs with good price and quality as compared to the other place in kl. Recommended
  • Tempat yang cocok buat belanja produk malaysia. Mulai dari kerajinan hingga makanan. Harga nya pun boleh ditawar. Kejelian memilih dan menawar di sini bisa diandalkan, terutama yang punya skill tawar di atas rata-rata. Lokasinya pun di pusat keramaian, tidak sulit menemukannya via maps. Jalan kaki pun seru.
