You will no longer wonder where to go after reading through this simple shopping guide.

1. Pavilion – Bukit Bintang

Pavilion is located near Bukit Bintang within short walking distance from Bukit Bintang monorail station.

This mall sells primarily expensive branded clothes and jewelry, but is also one of the best malls in terms of selection of restaurant.

Our personal dining picks are the food republic food court and Din Tai Fung dim sum house for mouthwatering Shanghai style Xiao long bao.

Getting there: Simply take the monorail to Bukit Bintang, Locate the Lot 10 Shopping Mall and walk straight forward by the Fahreinheit mall until you see Pavilion. Again, ask a local if you become unsure where to go.

2. KLCC Suria Mall

KLCC Suria is a part of the Petronas Twin Towers. This mall is a bit less luxurious than Pavilion and has a broader selection of shopping alternatives. Ground is filled with souvenir stalls, but they seem to be slightly over priced compared to Sungei Wang plaza which allows bargains.

What makes this mall worth visiting is the fact that they have a cinema showing movies in English with chinese and Malay subtitles.

WARNING! For some reasons they show over 30 minutes of commercials in the beginning, so don’t be in a hurry to find your seat. No wonder why local Malays arrived 30 minutes after we did.

Getting there: KLCC Suria can now be easily accessed through above ground air-conditioned bridges that starts by Pavilion mall. The talk takes around 10-15 minutes.

Alternatively take the monorail to Bukit Nanas and follow the streets towards the Petronas Twin Towers.

3. Low Yat Plaza

If you fancy electronics, simply head over to Low Yat Plaza. This electronic megamall is heaven for those into cameras, cellphone accessories, computers and other gadgets.

Getting there: Low yat can easily be accessed by walk from Jalan Bukit Bintang. If a map confuses you, simply ask a local. Everyone knows Low Yat Plaza.

4. Sungei Wang Plaza:

Are you a fan of bargains? Sungei Wang Plaza is the right place to go. Countless stores selling a mix of souvenirs, poor quality Chinese clothes, electronics and a wide selection of food and beverages. Level 3 even got a food court selling amazing authentic Indian, Chinese and Malay food.

Getting there: Take monorail to Bukit Bintang Station and go to Sungei Wang. It’s located right next to the monorail station.
