Shopping in Kuala Lumpur
- Heritage goods at the Central Market - If there’s only one place you could stop-by in Kuala Lumpur for shopping, it’s the central market. Here you can find many unique, yet practical items that are locally made. The rich and colorful culture of the Malaysian heritage is seen in every corner of the market. Apart from souvenirs and local fashion, there are also some specialty shops that offer traditional beauty products, herbal teas and Luwak coffee – the world most expensive coffee in the world. Yes the monkey poop coffee! Have your portrait hand-drawn by a local artist or learn batik drawing (the art of hand painted cloth). Ask your local guide about getting a temporary tattoo drawn from natural flower, find insights about your life with palm reading, instagram inside the illusion 3D museum or order your very own Chinese seal. At the Central Market, shopping becomes a truly cultural experience.
- Shop in style at Suria Kuala Lumpur City Center -Below the Twin Towers you’ll find Suria KLCC that holds one of the finest luxury brands among Kuala Lumpur’s Shopping Malls. Apart from catwalk fashion, you can also find great designs from popular local artists. You’ll love it! The mall also has an art gallery at Level 2, a petroleum science center at Level 4 and Malaysia’s only philharmonic center at Ground Level. Your local host can help you around these places and give you insights about the things you are seeing. Enjoy your shopping experience in Kuala Lumpur!
- Feel the city beat at Bukit Bintang Area - Another great thing to do in Kuala Lumpur if you’re into shopping is to head to the Bukit Bintang. It’s the Kuala Lumpur shopping heart and has a mix of affordable street side shops and luxury shopping malls. Find international brands at Pavilion, luxury watches at Starhill, local street fashion at Fahrenheit 88, electronics at Low Yat Plaza and affordable fashion at Sungai Wang. There are also tons of food options here, that you’ll for sure enjoy!
