Take Me To KL -- Central Market

Shopping should always be part of your trip's itinerary. Either you buy simple pasalubong for your family and friends or just simple rove around the streets, Central Market of Kuala Lumpur is a great place to have a Truly Asia experience.
Here you can find good deal souvenirs, local products and counterfeit products (If you are looking for one. hehehe).  One good thing about this place it, almost every other stalls they have a Filipino sellers, so it's not so intimidating to check items or speak your vernacular.

The "binatog" KL version pumps my curiosity but the taste is almost the same as the one being sold in the streets of Manila. So nothing to excite about (except the sanitation, I think is better hehehe)
Bicho bicho, deep fried donuts, fresh buko and Durian which is a very popular fruit there are being sold on the streets... Very Pinas, right?

Visiting this place and seeing foreigners drinking on the side streets of Central market, makes me think, why can't we have this kind of clean and safe night market experience in Divisoria. 
Indeed, this place is a nice spot to do shopping but honestly, I would still prefer Greenhills or Divisoria, primarily because of the wide range of shopping selections (beyond "We've Got It All" line) and the experience of heavy numbers of shoppers and the tawaran (asking for discount)you do  in almost half the price.

Happy Travel!
