Hotels near the Central Market

One of Kuala Lumpur’s most famous landmarks sits in the Chinatown area of the city, a neighbourhood of narrow streets, traditional Chinese shops and eateries, and colonial-style buildings. It is a pleasant area of the city to stay in that is also quite convenient thanks to the nearby LRT and KTM Komuter stations.

The Central Market isa historic market that was built in 1888 as a wet market and has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The market was revamped in the 1980s and today is a handicrafts market with shops and stalls set up by local artisans, as well as having restaurants and a food court onsite. It is Kuala Lumpur’s equivalent of New York’s SoHo flea market.
