Central Market (Pasar Seni)

It now houses a whole range of shops, offering a range of items such as antiques, Nyonya food, secondhand books and Kashmiri handicrafts.

Central Market also hosts a number of free cultural and artistic events during the year, but whatever its attractions as an entertainment, shopping and eating venue, the real star of the show is the building itself. The highlights include its beautiful art deco exterior, which dates from the 1930s, and the sumptuous floor tiling.

It's hard to believe how close KL came to losing such a valuable piece of its built heritage.
