Famous Taman Connaught Night Market (Pasar Malam) @ Cheras

Famous Night Market is one of the main attractions for people who are bargain hunters and street food lover. Country like Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand are pretty well known for their signature area. Well, in Kuala Lumpur we do have one of a signature that many locals that know about it. Famous Taman Connaught Night Market.

Pasar Malam Taman Connaught or Night Market in Cheras is already created its signature by being longest night market in KL. This had been a hit since long time ago, even when I studied in KL 12 years ago. For tourist, this is definately one of a place for you to visit and walk around besides China Town if you come at the right time, which is only on every Wednesday night.

Pasar Malam (67)

Pasar Malam (68)

Deep fried to perfection, stink enough that every one say its like toilet never wash for 4 days or drain got clock with stinky stuff. Well, not as bad as it is and its  love hate relationship. Still find Hong Kong & Taiwan taste so  much nicer although its much different.

Nowdays to eat snacks in Night Market is no longer cheap as I remember 10 years ago, RM20 enough to eat the whole street and for this round, after 10 years on my last visit, I spend about RM70 for the street snack. This is how much different compare to last time and of course choices of offering had change 50%. One of the best night market in KL.

Food snacks in here rangers from RM3-RM15, drinks from RM0.80 to RM10 and fashion shopping from RM1 – RM100 (depends on your bargaining skills)

Parking at the area will be horrible .. .

Its a great place to hunt for especially travelers, by Taxi it will cost about RM15-RM25 outright from KL, Bukit Bintang or by train , Star LRT to Tasik Selatan station then taxi..

Another of my favourite Pasar Malam is Pasar Malam OUG.

Locations:
Pasar Malam Taman Connaught,
Cheras, Kuala Lumpur
56000 Wilayah Persekutuan
(Opens on Wednesday nights weekly from 6pm till late)
– Look for USCI college or McD drive Thru)

Then he gave me small size of the fried durian which only consist of 3 pieces and it cost me RM13. RM13 for 3 !!!!!!! OMG!! plus together with the fried cempedak 4 pieces cost me RM7!!!!!! (from the “fried cempedak” stall on the top). Becareful of this stall as 2 of my friend get cheated also. One of my friend buy fried cempedak 5 pieces for RM10. WTH! As he never show the price list on his stall, he will sell different price to different person. Will never buy again!!!

      Hi Kelvin,

      its easy to catch a taxi as the pasar malam is just next to the main road.

      Estimated Journey without traffic 20-30 minutes.
