Established in 1888 Pasar Senai is one of the oldest markets in Kuala Lumpur. The heritage building is home to a number of shops representing diverse culture and crafts of Malaysia.
Pasar Senai is a great place to shop Batik, souvenirs, handicrafts, artwork and many local products manufactured in Malaysia.

My favorite Nyonya Restaurant, Precious Old China is located on the first floor of this building and serves original Nyonya or Peranakan sytle dishes.
Kasturi Walk and Petaling Street are located right next to the central Market. Annexe market is a terrific place for contemporary art.
Central Market is a center of cultural events and different vendor display wares and products based on various important cultural events such as deepvali for Hindus, Hari Raya Festivals for Muslims and merchandise for Chinese new Years Festivals
