Kuala Lumpur's megamalls offer great shopping experiences. Depending on whether you are on a bargain hunt or for top-end deals, Kuala Lumpur's malls has something for every budget and taste. Prices are slashed as much as 80% during the nation-wide Malaysia Megasale Carnival in March, August and December and the Malaysia Year End Sale (YES) in December.

Kuala Lumpur's most popular malls include:

  1. Central Market. For all your traditional handicraft needs: rattan baskets, wooden sculptures, traditional Indian, Chinese and Malay costumes, beaded jewellery, antiques... it's an inexhaustable list!
  2. Mid Valley Megamall. Over 400 tenants including home-grown fashion labels to internationally-renowned brands occupy the premises of Mid Valley Megamall. It is adjoined to The Gardens, a smaller mall catered solely to the top-end market.
  3. Sungei Wang Plaza. This mall is a labyrinth of shops, making it easy to get in but challenging to find your way out. Located in the shopping and entertainment district of Bukit Bintang, it is attached to Bukit Bintang Plaza.
  4. Berjaya Times Square. Also in Bukit Bintang, this is a one-stop destination for all your retail needs. Comprising of 10 floors with more than 700 (!!) retailers, Berjaya Times Square also comes with several food courts, an indoor theme park with an IMAX theatre and a spa centre. Not to be missed! (No. 1 Jalan Imbi / Daily 10am - 10pm / next to Imbi Monorail Station / +603 2117 3111)
  5. Suria KLCC. Located at the base of the Petronas Twin Towers ad home to the prestigious Petronas Art Gallery, Suria KLCC is a premier shopping mall with plenty of culture thrown into the mix. Whether you intend to stroll through KLCC Park or get tickets to the Skybridge, there's plenty to do here.
