For many of us who are locals, Central Market is a place that brings back a lot of old memories. Central Market was the central gathering places- during the days before mega malls or electronic trains had existed. We would take the mini buses (these buses were drove mostly recklessly but they got us to where we want to be fast enough as they swirl in and out of lanes and they were the traffic policemen’s favourite target for summons).

Today, it is mostly foreigners who would gather here. Today, the gathering point for Malaysian had moved to huge shopping complexes and lifestyle cafes.

Central Market displays lots of arts and crafts from all around Malaysia. The items had always been overpriced and now that people had more choices and go for pricing instead of workmanship, the number of visitors to Central Market had dropped.
