These open-air-markets feature hawker stalls that sell a variety of local produce, foodstuff, clothing and cakes. Haggling is a common practice. Street artists and traditional medicine vendors are an entertaining sight here.

Despite its cultural heritage, Kuala Lumpur is a modern city with high-rise buildings, huge shopping malls, five-star hotels and a well-developed public transportation system. In fact, the Petronas Twin Towers in KLCC, owned by the country's largest petroleum company, is currently the world's tallest building, with 88 stories and measuring 452 meters.

To anyone who has walked the corridors of Malaysia's shopping complexes or malls, the variety offered indeed makes it a shoppers' paradise. Each complex has its own unique character. The large variety of merchandise available is mind-boggling, ranging from speciality centres for IT, home furnishings and hyper-markets, to world-renowned brands and made-in-Malaysia products at value-for-money prices. Most complexes are open between 10.00 am and 10.00 pm. Shopping complexes here also offer leisure facilities, such as a cineplex, theme parks, amusement parks and bowling alleys. In addition, each has an exciting array of food outlets, from fast food to fine dining and everything in between. Local food alone offers Malay, Cantonese, Szechuan, Indian and Nyonya cuisine while international food covers the gamut from Japanese to Middle-Eastern, Italian and American.

100 Jalan Putra, 50350 Kuala Lumpur
Tel: (603) 4042 7122 Fax: (603) 4042 0716

THE CENTRAL MARKET

Jalan Hang Kasturi, 50050 Kuala Lumpur
Tel: (603) 2274 9966 Fax: (603) 2274 9906

Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, the Central Market is well-served by public transport. The Central Market is Malaysia's unique arts cum culture cum entertainment cum food bazaar and has been likened to Covent Garden in London and Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. Affectionately dubbed the 'cultural market', this popular 2-storey social hub comprises an exciting mix of 130 shops, 30 food and beverage outlets, 140 kiosks, cinemas, an exhibition corner which regularly showcases exhibitions and promotions of arts and culture, and an outdoor riverside amphitheatre where free cultural performances are staged. Part of the mezzanine floor has been tranformed into a typical Malay kampung (village), housing traders specialising in traditional crafts like tekad (gold embroidery), songket (a rich fabric interwoven with gold threads), sutera asli (natural silk), batik, Kelantan silverware and Malay antiques. It is a wonderful site for visitors to discover the richness and heritage of the Malay people. A favourite place for souvenir and gifts, the many shops and kiosks in Central Market sell an assortment of Malaysian handicraft, personalised T-shirts, costume jewellery, trinkets, delicate glass blown objects, ceramics, pottery, attractive batik scarves and apparel, traditional costumes, local snacks and delicacies, footwear, silver and gold jewellery, portraits and paintings, pewter, perfumes, watches, cameras and other interesting items. Great food is an integral component of Malaysian life and you may be in a quandary as to which to try out as the se-lection offered here is wide. Tantalising hot Indian curries, spicy Malay dishes, heavenly Chinese cuisine, popular Western fare and Malaysian treats are found on the mezzanine floor. There are several watering holes on the embankment where you can unwind with a drink and tasty pub snacks. At the northern end is the brightly coloured Central Market Annexe which houses cinemas, cafes, fast-food outlets, galleries and boutiques.



CHINATOWN

KL's Chinatown is a crowded colourful melange of signs, shops, activity and noise. The central section, Jalan Petaling, is a frantically busy market that is closed to traffic. It is most spectacular at night, when the combination of street stalls, food, haggling and bright lights makes impressions on all five senses. The old buildings, undergoing constant restoration by conservation groups are interesting in themselves, while bargain-hunters and collectors of kitsch might be in luck as well.



THE ROYAL SELANGOR PEWTER

Malaysia has been known for its extraordinary skills in the manufacturing of pewter products, an alloy of tin, antimony and copper. Those skills are demonstrated live at the Royal Selangor Factory. The country's pewter industry began in 1885 following the discovery of tin in the vicinity of Larut and Kuala Lumpur. An enterprising young man from China, Young Koon, soon began his pewter business and founded Royal Selangor, which today is the largest pewter-making factory in the world, producing quality tableware and giftware that is sold to domestic as well as international markets.
