What we say: 4 stars

For anyone who enjoys the sights and sounds of a busy bazaar, Chow Kit is a real blast. Just watch your feet on the slippery floors -- it's called a wet market for a reason.

Much of the clientele at the market is Malay or Indonesian, a reflection of how the area has become much less Chinese over the years.

What has not changed is Chow Kit's reputation as a red light district, although this is now mostly confined to the shadier back streets.

The easiest way to the market is Chow Kit Monorail station which sits just to the north of the market on Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman.
