  • Overview

    A chance to experience the native Malaysian lifestyle coupled with gorging on some mouth-watering dishes - everything in the Pudu Market tour makes for a double thumbs up! Extremely popular with the local citizens of Kuala Lumpur, the market is relatively new to tourists. A visit to this bustling market makes for a perfectly intimate acquaintance of the local culture.

    We will begin with meeting you near Pudu’s LRT station, from where we will casually ramble to the market which is about a few minutes away. If you are among the ones who live to eat, this would probably be the favourite part of your trip as we stop on the way at three different food stalls for a taste of local Malaysian breakfast fares. Breakfast is a big deal in Malaysia and we believe that you too will be convinced of all its goodness once you have tried the native cuisine.

    Our first stop is a classic Indian joint that serves some of the freshest and soft rotis (flat breads) with some spicy, delectable curries. Not a fan of spicy food? We have got you covered. Right after the rotis we will accompany you to indulge in some delish fried dishes as well as some popular traditional Malaysian snacks! We take our gastronomic pleasures quite seriously, you see? And while you enjoy a breakfast of a lifetime, our awesome tour guide will transport you to a different era with tales of the past - the real stories and anecdotes of Kuala Lumpur’s extraordinary evolution over the years.

    The next part of the tour revolves around the exciting frenzy that is Pudu Market. Discover local spices, watch how different meat is butchered and sold here, get awestruck by the variety of fresh seafood, get amazed by the local bargaining skills - this market will definitely make you feel like a little kid at a candy store.

    We know you would not be able to resist shopping here and our tour guide will be your perfect partner in getting you some good deals and help you bargain like a local resident. What makes Pudu so special is to see how multiple cultures coexist with each other. All in all, a visit to Pudu Market is an activity every traveller swears by!

    Pssst… don’t forget to ask your guide for some inside tips and tricks on visiting hidden gems in the city, right from offbeat locations to unexplored flea markets and of course, the best street food vendors!

    Additional info

    If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides, a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across destinations. After all, everyone deserves a small token of appreciation, are we right? Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour.

    Since it is a visit to a wet market, you might want to wear comfortable and preferably waterproof shoes with a good grip for this activity.
