I am not very familiar with Seremban and not much detail about this flea market in the Internet but I manage to find it after asking people around (near Seremban) for about one hour. The easiest ways to find this place are to look for Pasar Besar Seremban, Bank Simpanan Nasional or Maybank Seremban. If you're asking about Jalan Utam Singh or Pasar Karat, u most probably will be end up like me, received almost similar answer "tak tahu" (Don't know). Look like most people in Seremban don't know that this flea market even exist. Parking is not a big problem since not many people coming to this flea market. This market is under Seremban Municipal Council jurisdiction and Sunday is a free parking day.
This market are selling various items such as handicrafts, antiques, pottery, used computer, old books, flowers, bonsai, dry food, decorations, wall paintings and traditional herbs at reasonable prices. I can only spotted 5 people selling coins and banknotes at this place. Most of them is selling their item at a higher price. Some even higher then Kuala Lumpur market price. Only 2 person selling their items at a reasonable price and some nice items for people who hunting for collection like me. I manage to find, Terengganu old tin coin (its fake but I get them in a cheap price, will post the story later), 50 half dollar King Edward VII coin and 5 dollars King George Vi banknote sold for RM180. I don't manage to buy that green 5 dollars banknote because at the time when I spot it, the seller busy talking with other customer.
Other then that, most of item sell in this place are Malaysia coins & banknotes and some world coins. Some sellers do sell their item at a high price without any chance of bargaining. This flea market is not as good as Penang or Butterworth but still a worth place to visit for your hunting trip. Its just one and half hour drive from Kuala Lumpur. I will most probably making another trip to this place. Anyone of you have been to this pasar karat (Flea market) before?
