Fantastic night market. We went on a Saturday night so I'm not sure if this night market is there everyday or just in Saturdays.We took the Lrt to Masjid Jamek station and crossed Jalan Parlimen and entered the night market.It is (was) the month of Ramadan when we visited so the business owners were all breaking fast around 730pm so the market is very quiet and some stalls were closed for prayers and eating. But wait about 15 minutes and it comes alive. Ramadan is over around August 9 or 10.This was a great locals market. Not too many touristy items more ripoff items (of name brand things), food, traditional clothes etc. if you're looking for souvenirs you might have to look a bit harder here.All in all a great night market without all the haggle and tourists of the Petaling market.
