Kuala Lumpur is an excellent shopping destination, with
many malls, local stores and brands recognized
worldwide. The truth is that, in this sense, the city
comes out much better than the order and does not really
disappoint. The prices are not always so incredible, you
have to do a little research, but they are better than
in neighboring Singapore, where everything is very
expensive. If you are interested in retro style items, just visit
InternetAges where you can find vintage jeans.
For those who want to shop, the best option
is to go to the malls, because in addition to having a
wide range of stores, from the popular Forever 21 to
Chanel, they have an air conditioning system - and,
believe me, due to the heat in the city, being in
air-conditioned environments is a great satisfaction.
A mall that should certainly be part of your schedule
is Suria KLCC, which is at the foot of
the Petronas Twin Towers, has excellent stores and is
always full. It is huge, has several restaurant options
and even houses a cinema and an aquarium. Another option
highly sought after by residents and tourists is the
Pavillion, a large mall with varied
stores. Department stores like Isetan and SOGO are also
excellent alternatives for shopping, because they sell a
little of everything.
Bukit Bintang is an area of the city full of
restaurants and shops and is also a good choice for
sightseeing and shopping. There is Berjaya Times
Square, a shopping center that has several
stores, mainly regional.
To buy souvenirs from trips or more popular products,
a good option is to go to the Central Market
or Chinatown, where there are all kinds
of products, but of doubtful origin.
If you are making a long connection, you can go to
Mitsui Outlet Park, which has outlet
stores. It is far from the central city and we do not
find the prices so charming, but it may be worth it to
kick your legs between flights.
