Johor Bahru l Kuala Lumpur l Penang

Shopping in Kuala Lumpur

Shopping in KL is sheer fun and awfully exciting as well. One can enjoy bargain hunting within the cool comforts of ultra-modern, one-stop shopping complexes or the thrill of browsing among antiques and curio items in establishments in the older parts of the city. Mingle with the jostling crowd at the numerous roadside stalls or share in the heady excitement of the carnival like "pasar malam" or night markets.

The main shopping areas in Kuala Lumpur are the Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman area, Jalan Petaling or Jalan Bandar area, and Jalan Bukit Bintang area.

Central Market

Just across the Klang river from Daya Bumi Complex is "Pasar Seni" (Art Market), which is housed with conserved structure that was formerly the wet Central Market of Kuala Lumpur. It still bears the same name today. There are numerous specialty shops inside that offer a range of handicrafts, antiques, curios, and works of local artists.

Petaling Street

Petaling Street and Jalan Bandar are at the hub of Kuala Lumpur's bustling Chinatown. Shops here offer a variety of textiles, clothes, shoes, and handbags at bargain prices. The area is also known for its jewelry items beautifully crafted in gold and set with priceless gemstones. Nepalese traders offer exotic ethnic jewelry , wall hangings, ornaments, curios, and teapots from India and Myanmar. Make-shift and mobile stores jam the streets with their offerings of dried foodstuff, herbs, fruits, flowers and herbal remedies. This is the place to hone your bargaining skills, where a poker face and the gift of the gab would be plus points in your favor. This unusually busy street becomes more lively at night with the sprouting of stalls offering a diverse range of products from ethnic goods, clothing, and cosmetic to 'designer watches'! The bright lights from the shop fronts and stalls combine with the blaring music lend the area a festive carnival air.
