There is always something for everyone when it comes to Kuala Lumpur shopping. Shopping in Kuala Lumpur is haven for people who liked looking for a bargain, a little trinket here, fashionable accessories there, from big luxurious names to simple branded lines, or even low cost generic lines, all could be found in KL.

Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur.


Is this an Asia phenomena or is it the same anywhere in the world? Apparently scientist has discovered that shopping is pleasurable because the brain do release chemicals that make us happy! And so, KL shopping is like a favourite pastime for most people. Come weekend, the Kuala Lumpur shopping malls will be filled with throngs of shoppers. Parking become scarce and personally I rather not join the crowd unless absolutely necessary.

Of course as a visitor, it would be interesting to see the masses go about in their shopping activities. Who knows, you might be like them too, browsing around trying to find that particular item that you need or it could very well be impulse buying. Whatever your reason, there are many shopping Kuala Lumpur Malaysia places that you could go to do your KL shopping.

Some plazas are also specialize like the Low Yet Plaza where you can find a bargains for computer devices, laptops, PDAs and other gadgets. But for most, it would be fashion brands. Most Kuala Lumpur shopping place sells similar branded goods, if you can find it in Suria KLCC Kuala Lumpur, you most likely can find it in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur too.

But as you know, my wife would tell you otherwise, she said certain shops could only be found in certain places. And even if the same branded store, they may carry different product lines. That’s for the hardcore shoppers like my wife.

Shopping in Kuala Lumpur is not so difficult, some like the Bukit Bintang Golden Triangle area has a cluster of shopping complex which you can hop from one KL shopping place to another. It is patterned after the Singapore Orchard Road, a one stop Kuala Lumpur shopping within walking distance to any shopping malls.

Others are like huge sprawling complex like the MidValley Megamall Kuala Lumpur, where you can hold up for the whole day.
