Chow Kit Market, Kuala Lumpur

image

When travelling and discovering new countries and cities, there’s always one place which is a must to go for me: the market. There you can instantly get an idea of the country’s culture, the way of life, preferences and of course local specialties.

Thus, if you happen to travel to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, you should plan a morning visit of the Chow Kit market (named after the neighborhood it is in). It is the biggest so called “wet market” in the city and far away from usual tourists paths. There you can also buy spices and dried chilies as a gift to bring home and if you have the opportunity to cook in Malaysia also very fresh and inexpensive fish and shrimp.

Just one advice: don’t wear your favorite shoes since the floor is quite “wet”. Here are my impressions from the last visit:

  1. Barry Said,

    Love all the photos…and those ‘yellow’ birds look great…fed on corn?

  2. alexis2 Said,

    Not sure. I saw them flame the birds after pulling the feathers and their colour definitely changed a bit after that… But my Malay is as bad as their English so no chance to have big discussions ;P
