Petaling Street Market Tours

101 Reviews
Petaling Street Market
With a history dating back to the 19th century, Petaling Street Market is a popular destination with locals and tourists looking for bargains. Packed with stalls selling a wide range of goods, from clothing, shoes, and bags to watches, electronics, and souvenirs, the covered market also offers a wide and diverse array of food options.
 
The Basics

Located in Chinatown, a giant red arch with “Jalan Petaling” in gold script marks the main entrance to the market, which really comes to life after the sun sets. Try your bargaining skills at the myriad stalls selling different goods. Take a break from shopping at one of the many food stalls around the market, and try local favorites such as hokkien mee (stir-fried noodles), salted roast duck, curry noodles, Hainanese chicken rice, or asak laksa (spicy noodle soup).
 
While you can stroll Petaling Street Market independently, a market or food tour can provide a more informative introduction to local tastes and treats. Some tours will stop at other markets such as Central Market or Kasturi Walk, or other local restaurants and food stalls. Opt for a tour that includes round-trip transfers for a hassle-free experience.
 
Things to Know Before You Go

  • Petaling Street Market is ideal for bargain hunters and foodies.
  • The canopy covering the market provides protection against the sun, and some protection against the rain.
  • Buyer beware, as not all branded goods sold here will be authentic.
  • Don’t forget to bargain for better prices.
 
How to Get There
Petaling Street Market is located in the heart of Chinatown, which is well-served by public transport. A number of train stations are within walking distance, including Pasar Seni and Masjid Jamek (LRT), Kuala Lumpur station (KTM Komuter), and Maharajalela (Monorail). Major bus routes also stop nearby.
 
When to Get There
Petaling Street Market is open daily. Shops open from 10am, but many vendors don’t start setting up their stalls until mid- to late afternoon. Visit the market in the early afternoon to see it without crowds or after 7pm to see it at its liveliest.
