Plaza Mont Kiara 
For a more bespoke vibe that still infuses the carnivalesque enchantment of a KL open-air market, head to this most un-basic artisan enclave, where you can blissfully rummage amid more exclusive and upscale handmade soaps, homemade desserts, vintage apparel, potted plants, and fictional books in a dreamy fountained courtyard.

Masjid India Flea Market
