Central Market, Chinatown and Little India


Kuala Lumpur’s cultural enclaves are some of the city’s most popular tourist hotspots. Central Market, a prominent heritage landmark with its 1930s Art Deco style, is a great place to find local arts and crafts. Just down the road, Chinatown is a bustling cultural and shopping spot, with a number of heritage buildings, clan houses and temples. Meanwhile, the lively Little India in Brickfields offers a glimpse into the lifestyle of the Indian community, from its colourful clothing to fiery curries.

Must Do

  • Tantalise your tastebuds with the wide selection of local delicacies sold along Kasturi Walk, a covered walkway just outside Central Market
  • Visit Chinatown during the annual Lantern Parade and Chinese New Year celebrations
  • Stroll through Little India during the annual Deepavali festival
